    Default Fallout 4 Fake

    http://www.incgamers.com/2013/12/fal...-com-is-a-fake

    This evening the survivor2299.com website revealed its true colours in what has been a cruel hoax by a member of the Fallout community.

    Last week we received messages from a Fallout fan who wanted to remain anonymous showing conversations with a member of the Fallout community who runs a Fallout Facebook page. The chat dialogue we were shown indicated that this member was getting “bored” with running the page and so concocted this elaborate hoax to troll the community.

    Earlier in the week there were indications that this could be a hoax when the site started to fall over and the timer was reset to keep rolling. Despite this, the countdown continued and clues even started to ramp up in the past few days, including this afternoon.

    The domain name was registered with GoDaddy using the name ZeniMax so it looked semi-legit when initial investigations began. According to our tip-off last week, a hosting plan was purchased to run for under 30 days which is why the countdown timer was set to run out at a rather odd time and day initially. The alleged plan was to post a troll face or a trolling message on the site when the countdown reached zero. The individual said he was doing this “just for fun”.

    This evening the coded messages and Morse code was replaced with this video.



    As much as I wanted this game I did not get hyped because Bethesda has said nothing. And in the end it was indeed a fake.

    It's probably how I'd feel about a hoaxed 'The Last of Us 2'.
