Fallout 4: Bethesda Is Up To Something
Bethesda seems to be up to something, and the optimist in us hopes it's got something to do with Fallout 4.
Published on May 14, 2013
So recently we reported that it looked unlikely that Fallout 4 would be announced at E3 2013, but since then a couple of unusual things have happened.
First was the appearance of new merchandise on the Bethesda Store, in particular the appearance of a hoodie with the Tunnel Snakes logo emblazoned on it.
As you may already know, the Tunnel Snakes were a gang inside Vault 101, but only a small part of Fallout 3 and an even smaller part of the franchise as a whole.
Additionally Bethesda has released a a set of new t-shirts including iconic face of Vault Boy and the Brotherhood Of Steel logo.
But why would Bethesda release a hoodie - which is a more expensive product on the store - for such a small and less-iconic part of the game?
Not only this, but very recently Bethesda also uploaded the Fallout 3 Trailer to its YouTube channel. The video (below, but strangely blocked from being embedded) you will likely recognise, but it has been five years since Fallout 3 was released... why now?
We're not about to say this all points to Fallout 4 because there's no real evidence to suggest that, but it does seem strange that Bethesda is gearing up on elements of Fallout 3, perhaps to remind people of the series in time for an announcement of some kind?
We'll keep a very close eye on Bethesda over the coming weeks; maybe we've missed some tiny clue and something is happening after all?
