Fallout 4
Fallout 4 Listed on German Retailer's Site, More Clues Teased
Written Monday, December 02, 2013 By Richard Walker
View author's profile

Fallout 4 has been spotted on German games retailer website Gamesware, presumably in response to the teaser website, '', believed to be linked to the next instalment in the apocalyptic RPG/shooter series. And though it's been written off by some as a hoax, the teaser site continues to be updated with morse code and coded messages.

Some of these messages have been deciphered and pertain to Fallout 4's oft-rumoured Boston setting, the most recent of which is "THE INSTITUTE IS SEALED. THEY WON'T HELP US. I'M HEADING TO BLACK ROW. -NGQHT 5120-" according to a document posted by a user on NeoGAF.

The document in question has been keeping tabs on the 'Survivor2299' teaser site, translating the changing morse code and deciphering the messages that have frequently been posted. Morse code messages point towards survivors calling for help from Vault 119, with distress calls like: "Calling all stations, this is overseer 119 emergency enemy unknown, SOS. Vault 119 Quabbin 7667, repeat, SOS, Vault 119 Quabbin 7667 enemy unknown."

Today's message is another cry for help from Vault 119, which reads: "Calling all stations, this is Vault 119, SOS, Level 4 is under attack, Overseer is dead, repeat, SOS, Level 4 is under attack, Overseer is dead. (We want Mark I? We won’t make it?)"

It's all a rich tapestry, and could eventually add up to nothing. But chances are, it could also mean an announcement for Fallout 4 is imminent, and could be coming as soon as VGX later this week. We'll simply have to wait and see.

[Thanks, Reqqu]

I wouldn't mind if this was for a series I actually liked, but these reports are getting very boring, very quickly(I look at them because I told a friend I would keep him updated)

While I do enjoy Fallout and Elder Scrolls I really hope they sort their engine out, I swear their games seem to have more glitches than everything else combine.

Just a quick heads-up for anyone aspiring conspiracy hunters out there:, which looks like a 'registration' for occupancy in Vault 119, is fake and not related to thesurvivor or anything else in this ARG. Is it an ARG? Might as well be.

Not finding every glitch I can understand, but some very big ones fit through the cracks, which is really unacceptable, I've still to finish a play-through of New Vegas every time I've tried I've hit game breaking glitches, while I never hit a major Skyrim bug I know they are out there, Due to others saying they've hit them.

If the games are to big for them to police they should do something the size that they're actually capable of.

I don't understand why people 'hope' this is for next gen, I don't mean any offense, or to sound rude. But if you actually think about it, do you really believe a big name game would be announced after the release of next gen consoles, be released in maybe a years time & come out on the old consoles & not the current ones (which is next gen, but now current gen :p). Seriously?!

@17 It could be as glitchy as New Vegas for all I care and it would still be a better game than a lot of the stuff released in the same year. People gave New Vegas a lot of shit at release for bugs, but that didn't stop me from enjoying the console release and then moving on to put another 191 hours on the PC with mod support.

@24 Be happy if you get a new game at all. Almost all of the existing lore is in the US to begin with and we still have plenty of locations to visit (or revisit if they take the game back to California at some point) to warrant staying there. It's not like the TES games where each part of the world was crafted with a rich backstory to go along with it. Only alternative locations I could think of based on places that have been covered in detail somewhat is China (terrible idea) or further up north to Canada.

@10: The games are big, sure. That's not an excuse for the busted save system though, and since it's the cause of many crashes there should have been an easy fix for it.

I don't know why you people are praying this is legit. Of course it's legit. How many times, on this site, has there been news of something and it's come true? Like a 100% success rate. Sure the authors can't only say it's rumour or speculation. But have some common sense. If I've learned anything regarding entertainment/video games, etc. all "suspicious" outings turn out to be real.

lol @ people crying about glitches. Shut the fuck up. You'll buy it, experience a glitch or two and still have a full FO experience. Unless you're the type of autistic child that pouts and screams at any little flaw.

I think the site may be very real
Bethesda is too quiet about it

when prey 2 had a similar website, did a countdown
used Bethesda logos etc.
Bethesda came out within two weeks and said it was not theirs

this survivor site has been up far longer

here's hoping Todd will do a repeat of 2010
when at the VGA he announced Skyrim

VGA now called VGX is 12/7/2013

VGX/VGAs start a day or so before the countdown ends if I recall.

I hope it's announced. I greatly enjoyed New Vegas and 3. Would be a big enough push for me to get a new console sometime next year.

Well, at this point I am all in with these rumors, I am fully buying into this being legit. I want them to be true so bad! If they end up being fake, I would actually be upset with Bethesda for not killing the rumor, allowing me to get so excited. I think they WOULD have squashed the rumor if it were a hoax.

Has Bethesda or ZM said ANYTHING about this website or the code? ZM owns the site! lol, I think it is real.

It's free marketing for them that's why they wouldn't why to stop it, that's if it does turn out to be a fake.

Either way it's generating a lot of talk around the idea of it, so I don't see why they would try and put that fire out.

So the bottom image on Survivor2299 is the Vault logo, yeah? If this isn't a fan site, then it's likely some type of Fallout related media. And with how big Skyrim was on top of the new gens' power, I'd say Fallout 4 is likely incoming.
