The possible Fallout 4 website, The Survivor 2299, has been the talk of the gaming community since it started teasing gamers a few weeks ago. Since its launch, Bethesda fans have been scouring over the website’s coding and clues to try and figure out any secret hidden within.
Fallout 4 is one of the most anticipated unannounced game sequels and fans have been eager for a followup since exploring the Wastes in the seminal Fallout 3, so ever since the website went live the buzz surrounding it has been intense as we await a probably imminent announcement. Development on Fallout 4 has been hinted at in the past, but Bethesda has been able to keep the game’s existence a mystery so far, at least until this viral marketing campaign began.
While there are some questions about the website’s authenticity, no denial from Bethesda and the sheer amount of information that has been extracted from the website – including possible audio for a Fallout 4 teaser trailer – adds credence to the site’s legitimacy.
As the clock on the Fallout 4 teaser website continue to run towards its December 11 countdown date, VG24/7 noticed that the site was updated with another puzzle to solve. Now at the top of the website, a nonsensical jumble of letters can be seen before a bleak warning.

Nothing on the website has been placed without reason thus far, so it’s safe to assume that these letters can be decoded to reveal a secret message. The exact nature of that message isn’t yet clear, but you can bet that the community is hard at work trying to crack the code.
The VGX are coming up this Saturday and with the show focusing more on more ‘new content’ than ever before, it might be the perfect place for Bethesda to announce the game, since they’ve used the venue to announce Skyrim and Fallout 3 in the past. Although, that’s at odds with the countdown on the site which is set to end four days later, so even the likelihood of that prospect isn’t exactly clear.
Would Bethesda miss the chance to announce Fallout 4 at a huge event to instead debut the game on their own terms? If the game is going to be announced at VGX, what is set to happen on the website on the 11th? Can gamers even trust that the website is even real? None of those questions are likely to be answered until at least Saturday, but it will be interesting to see if the community can put their heads together to uncover the secrets hidden in this new update.
