Please Stand By

It looks like it’s finally happened, the end of days. Fallout 4 news is imminent. Very imminent…

Everybody has been staring intently at Bethesda Softworks in the run up to E3 2015, waiting for Fallout 4 to be confirmed, and they have finally flinched.

The fallout.bethsoft.com subsite changed a few hours ago. It has changed to a black and white, fifties-esque test card, with a rotating clock and a countdown timer. The screen flickers, and it generally looks a bit run down, and it feels every bit like Fallout.

At the time of writing, that countdown has exactly 20 hours and 48 minutes to go. That lands us with some news – presumably of the long-awaited Fallout 4 – at 3pm/15:00 hours tomorrow. That’s 3pm BST folks; or 10am EST, 7am PST, or Midnight in Sydney, Australia if you’re alternately geographically persuaded.

Please Stand By... for Fallout 4?

 

It feels awesome to see the old Fallout style back again, doesn’t it? It’s giving me tingles.

Interestingly, if you view the page source, there’s a custom error text on there too:

Access Error:

PA system failure has occured.
Shutdown of the Masterbrain has been authorized and all sensitive materials have been removed for security purposes.
Please attempt re-access. Have a pleasant day.

In case you missed it, the Masterbrain is a unique robobrain that controls all the other security robots, and can be found roaming the Vault-Tec headquarters in Fallout 3.

There they are again. More tingles. Fallout 4 is finally coming, people!
