Welcome to our Liveblog covering the Fallout announcement today. We'll be updating this blog as more news comes to light.
Be sure to check out the Fallout 4 Portal
Kicking off again. One of our commenters has noticed that you can pre-order Fallout 4 from the Bethesda store for $US60. In return, you get a 20% off voucher for the Bethesda store. Seems like a good deal to me.
Kotaku are pointing out that not only does the video seem to confirm a voiced antagonist as their leak said it would, but the protagonist looks just like what they said it would. Does this confirm the PC has been in Cryo-Stasis? Read for yourself and decide. Agent c (talk)
The official site is currently overloaded with traffic, we recommend you watch the youtube video below.

Fallout4.com now redirecting to "Site not found" at dreamhosts - http://content.bethsoft.com/bsw_cms_asset/46892_8_1.jpg its real? Agent c (talk)
I can confirm that the WHOIS information correctly lists Zenimax as the owner, and the registrant is CSC Corporate domains, consistent with Bethsoft.com; this appears to be real. HOWEVER the admin email is domain.manager.dc@DLApiper.com - a law firm. This email address is inconsistent with Bethsoft.com which has Dnsadmin04@zenimax.com Agent c (talk)
We're still standing by as excitement continues to build.... What are you hoping to see? Are the mentions of the Instutute, simulation or 1898 in the official site code worth anything, or are they just way out of context? Is this for Fallout 4, or is it just a Deathclaw Plushie? What do you think? Agent c (talk)
