Nov. 14 this year a redditor spotted the domain registration http://thesurvivor2299.com from zenimax. It had a timers counting down (and still has) and a morse code audio files in the background.
Sunday, the first timer reached 0 and the morse codes were changing every couple of hours and they are presenting text phrases encrypted with different cyphers.
Some users were able to decrypt them and keep track of all the changes to the site in a chronological order. The messages in the morse code and cyphers appear to be a prelude to the actual game:

Code:
"Calling any station. Calling any station. Calling any station. This is OZ. Please stand by."
"Nuclear winter is coming. Reserve your future home today! ###PERMISSION DENIED BY OVERSEER (15334) ###"
"MY DEAR SISTER. I’M HEADING TO THE INSTITUTE. GOD KNOWS WHAT HAPPENED TO THIS PLACE NOW. THIS OLD BASTARD WILL HELP US. HE MUST HELP US. –0321–"
"Bridgeport, this is Concord (MA), message: Quabbin Reservoir is hit, repeat, Quabbin Reservoir is hit, over."
"Calling all stations, calling all stations, calling all stations, this is Vault Technician 2510730 one six emergency Vault-Tec shelter for survivors in Quabbin, number 119, repeat, emergency Vault-Tec shelter for survivors in Quabbin, number 119, over"
"Calling all stations, calling all stations, calling all stations. Boston is gone, I repeat, Boston is gone. No Hope. Frequency 3450 Return Transmission. God Bless America."
"THE INSTITUTE IS SEALED. THEY WON'T HELP US.    I'M HEADING TO BLACK ROW. -NGQHT 5120-"
"Calling all stations, this is overseer 119 emergency enemy unknown, SOS. Vault 119 Quabbin 7667, repeat, SOS, Vault 119 Quabbin 7667 enemy unknown."
"Calling all stations, this is Vault Overseer 119, anybody near Quabbin? SOS Vault door breach, repeat, SOS Vault door breach, enemy unknown, level 1, 2, and 3 gone, survivors on (service lift? sealed? secure location?) level 4"
"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?)"
"Calling (BR = Black Row?). (OTST = On the site? ); ground is safe. Too late, level 4 breach. No survivors, 899 corpses. We are leaving Vault 119. Over, back to you."


A number of the translations are speculations, because the morse code is heavily abbreviated, but they seem to have a promising story. Hopefully something more interesting than a lost dad or a virtual casino owner.

They update the messages on the site regularily it seems, so i will post updates as i see them.

Hmm, I don't see todays text translated:
Code:
KVNGR REV ALPHA PPS VT PIZ UHMYLPVOQ CM XHWMZP. NBJB SPI'F BYQS QT D'Y BYFGEOB FI VQDYL MAQ. -NGQHT 5120-


The morse code in background is already translated :D

I think this text is still from dec.1.
The morse-code's been changing once or twice a day since then.

I enjoyed Fallout3. I still haven't finished it because whenever I play, I lose track of time and end up having a very tried and grumpy day at work the next day. >:(

New Vegas looked too samey, but I'd be interested to see if this one raises the bar. Xbone/PS4 only? or swan song for the current gen?

Yes fallout 3 and new vegas does that a lot. It's really fun to just walk from location to location and find a new location on the way.

I'd guess it is both, next gen and pc, since they had skyrim on consoles aswell, but i trust bethsoft enough to not abandon the core audience for this title.

New morse code:

Quote:
CALLING BLACK ROW OUTSTATION. REPORTING SUSPICIOUS ACTIVITY NEAR SECURE LOCATION: THE INSTITUTE ONE VAULT DWELLER 2 MILES NORTH; THREE UNKNOWN HUMANS 3 MILES NORTHWEST, OVER
although they seem to be unsure about the interpretation, see the compilation for more info

After a few other morse codes and ciphers, and an official mention by bethesda, it's now been revealed to be a hoax.

Honestly, my disappointment isn't because there's no fallout4 hints, but that bethesda mentioned they wouldn't hype a game like that, but only through official channels.

I think it would have been an amazing, unique PR stunt, and quite frankly, i thank the guy who made it. I was having a blast with it.

There is no smiliey that adequately conveys my disappointment. :(

However. on the plus side, less distraction!

Turns out, if we want to believe Kotaku, that Bethesda is actually working on Fallout4
http://kotaku.com/leaked-documents-reve ... 1481322956

Apparently they're looking for Voice actors right now. From my understanding that means the game is close to post production, as a lot of the script and game progression needs to be nailed down before they can voice it. Maybe, though, it is still part of the preproduction.

Only time will tell.
