I want to believe

I want to believe so badly. Fallout 4, please let it be Fallout 4.

First clue, the date. New Vegas takes place in 2281, so 2299 is very believable. But what's really important is the source.

prepareforthefuture.com is the fallout website. The last link, the one with "wads_atheneum" almost definitely refers to the Wadsworth Atheneum in Hartford, Connecticut. This game is going to be about the Commonwealth.

There's also a link to the Bethesda youtube channel. The morse code audio is called bridgeport, which happens to be a town in Connecticut.

Get hype.

This is becoming more and more believable. The website has a Vault-Tec symbol below the countdown timer now.

Also, turns out there is a tumblr too. It has some audio files, and a few pictures. There are also some random text posts with seemingly little meaning. There is a gif of what is very reminiscent of a terminal from Fallout malfunctioning. Here it is:

This image makes me very hopeful. My hype levels are reaching critical levels.

You can see the tumblr for yourself here.

The tags for the photos are #Fallout, #The Survivor, #Bethesda.

NIN did a better viral marketing campaign than this.

Oh sweet! Its about time. I'm actually really happy about this.
I tried Skyrim and just couldn't get into it.

You'd think they'd let people have a little fun with their ARG before putting out big posters with 4s on them and all but confirm it.

Oh well. Wasted potential, but the game should be good.

I'm still in love with the marketing Hellboy did.

Well it turns out that the tumblr isn't marketing at all. The tumblr is a fan project, and is nothing more than a really good fan story. All pictures I posted from the tumblr are not made by Bethesda.

However, the owner of the tumblr has stated that he is not related to thesurvivor2299.com website, and was inspired by it to make his tumblr.

So now all we have is this countdown and a Vault-Tec logo. Also, the source of the website seems to have changed. It looks like they removed the links to the Bethesda youtube and to prepareforthefuture,com

So the website seems to keep changing. Earlier there was a bunch of letters on top of the countdown, it's gone now but I took a screenshot earlier. It was on my phone so it looks a bit off.

This is a Caesar cipher that translates to "My dear sister. I'm heading to the institute. God knows what happened to this place now. This old ******* will help us. He must help us."

The institute is another clue that the game will take place in the Commonwealth.
