Bethesda Welcomes Us Home With First In-Game Fallout 4 Trailer

The Fallout 4 website is live, just an hour and a half in advance of the "Please Stand By" countdown timer's expected expiration. The game will be fully revealed at E3 at Bethesda's press conference on Sunday, June 14.

There will be a cinematic trailer coming this morning, as evidenced by the site. We expect that will be live at 10 a.m. Eastern.

Fallout 4 is slated for Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC. Images of the box art were also posted on the Fallout 4 website before it was taken down.

And here's the trailer you've been waiting for. Ron Perlman returns (and we learn more about the man uttering the iconic line about war). Our hero (or heroine) will emerge from Vault 111. The Brotherhood of Steel is clearly active in this part of the country Boston (as identified by the USS Constitution and the State House shown in the trailer), and the underscore carries themes from Inon Zur's fantastic Fallout 3 theme. Check it out for yourself:

 

Our Take
We finally know the game is real, and Bethesda is clearly ready to talk in detail at E3. The show starts a whole day earlier this year, but unless the first-parties bring some major heat, it also might as well be over that early, too.
