The countdown clock, seen at fallout.bethsoft.com, has the unmistakable 1950s style found throughout the post-nuclear-apocalypse Fallout series.

The site currently has an error message.

According to Phil Savage over at PCGamer.com, the game is only listed for PC, PS4 and Xbox One, suggesting a break with last gen consoles and hopefully signalling a commitment to a next gen experience.

A youtube video, currently set to private, was also found on the site.

The Fallout series, starting back in 1997, focuses on role-playing in an open world post-apocalyptic setting. Originally published by Interplay, the series jumped to new heights in 2008 with the release of the Bethesda studios produced Fallout 3. Bringing the action fully into a 3D world and on to consoles, the title won numerous Game of the Year awards.

The long-awaited Fallout 4 announcement comes five years after the last release, Fallout: New Vegas.
