Fallout 4 news, less than 24 hours away?!

Vault17 has brought this to our attention! Due to the fact this has been placed on the specific Fallout domain of the Bethesda and the obvious link to older waiting screens, it's clearly Fallout related, and considering earlier Fallout 4 indications, it's most likely we'll get some news concerning an upcoming Fallout title! Prepare for the probably good news, but also prepare for a possible lack of news. They must keep some exciting new things for their E3 meeting. Nukapedia will keep you updated!

Also, Pete Hines from Bethesda Softworks published the mysterious and telling comment "Something's coming..." on his twitter account. This promises even more good things to come for Fallout fans.

Accessing the pagesource of the Countdown timer reveals some interesting things, as can been in the last image. At the bottom, the script source .institute.js may possibly hint to The Institute. Also to note, in the middle, the text "PA System has occured. Shutdown of the Masterbrain has been authorized..." links to the Fallout 3 setting. We'll see what happens tomorrow!

Thanks to our brothers over at the Russian version of our wikia (Убежище), it has been brought to ou attention that the site also contains a "hidden" "video glitch".

---The following is based on CSS on the Bethesda site and the actual meaning has not yet been confirmed by people knowledgeable about css, following section is very speculative---

Seems Bethesda wants us to pre-order something, probably linked to things you can see in a stream or on youtube

The CSS makes mention of a "simulation hero background image" with setting even putting its minimum width at 1280px. Seems this "Simulation hero" is getting an important role. The site mentions this "Simulation-Hero" 20 times in its CSS.
