Fallout Wiki wrote:According to Reddit, the Morse code on the page translates to '12-22-13', or maybe '11-22-13'.
The facts:
The .mp3 file can be accessed at this address which incidentally references the Connecticut city of Bridgeport.
Another file on the server (commented out currently), fall-river-6191da7f11n.mp3, references the city of Fall River south of Boston and east of Bridgeport.
Another file has been added (commented out as well), hanscom-msg-52862c3e7a30e.mp3, referring (apparently) to Hanscom AFB, Massachussets.
The domain registrant is ZeniMax Media Inc. The same spelling of the registrant, data, and even contact information are used for the main Bethesda Softworks domain (bethsoft.com). GoDaddy domain data.
This isn't unprecedented. The Warlords of Draenor domain was registered by Blizzard through GoDaddy as well. Thanks to Rob O'Neill for pointing that out.
The Google conversion id (located in the JavaScript portion at the bottom of the page) is 963805860. The same Google conversion id is used by official Bethesda Softworks webpages (eg. The Elder Scrolls.
The cascading style sheet references the Monofonto font used in Fallout 3s interface.
A div at the bottom of the page is noted as pointing towards Bethesda Softworks' own YouTube profile.
A Tumblr account that's related to this page (it seems) has been uncovered on Reddit.
Additionally, an overlooked point is that the site has now experienced massive traffic and is still up. As Rob O'Neill (thanks again, man) points out, this indicates that whomever operates the site clearly has the funds to pay for the bandwidth and traffic.
Now removed content:
The European RTMP server is stated to point to a Polish IP (5.131.13.121). The American IP (199.107.64.171) is listed as owned by ZeniMax Media. The second (199.15.249.30) resolves to a Baltimore hosting company.
The site included references to assets, including posters:

<img src="http://prepareforthefuture.com/static/00_posters/04_poster_apo.png">
<img src="http://prepareforthefuture.com/static/00_posters/04_poster_battlesh_cov.png">
<img src="http://prepareforthefuture.com/static/00_posters/04_poster_river.png">
<img src="http://prepareforthefuture.com/static/00_posters/04_poster_bst01.png">
<img src="http://prepareforthefuture.com/static/00_posters/04_poster_bst02.png">
<img src="http://prepareforthefuture.com/static/00_posters/04_poster_bk_wads_atheneum.png">

04_poster_bk_wads_atheneum.png seems to reference the Wadswoth Atheneum, an art museum in Hartford, Connecticut.
04_poster_battlesh_cov.png appears to be a reference to Battleship Cove in Fall River, Massachusetts.
It does seem similar to how Fallout 3 was teased, though remember the following things to consider before claiming it's the next coming of Fallout:
The countdown script is referred to as bscountdown.js. BS is a well known acronym for, well, bullshit.
Pinging the domain name used to resolve to the IP 5.131.13.121, which is a Polish server belonging to ViBiznes, a hosting company not used by ZeniMax or Bethesda. Currently it resolves to 199.15.249.30, which is a server belonging to a Baltimore hosting company, not on any IP belonging to the ZeniMax Media company.
However, pinging stream.thesurvivor2299.com resolves to 199.107.64.171, an IP owned by ZeniMax Media Inc.
The presence of Polish names for script variables inside the website code also indicates this may very well be a very convincing fake. Though highly unlikely, it might also mean that it was outsourced to a Polish company.
ZeniMax does not use GoDaddy for domain registration. They rely on the services of [http://www.cscglobal.com CSC are in front of months, not the other way around).
The site references assets from the defunct Prepare for the Future website, rather than a new domain.Corporate Domains, Inc.] Furthermore, it is possible to submit fake registration details while applying for a domain, allowing one to mimic a corporation.
Another issue is that the supposed reveal uses the European date format, rather than American (i.e. days
There was a 'fallout.js' (JavaScript) as a file reference on the page, but it has been since removed.
Looking up the locations on the map, they seem to be centered south and south-west of Boston, which was repeatedly rumored (without any sort of official confirmation) to be the setting of the next Fallout game. However, it should be noted that the distance between Bridgeport and Fall River alone totals 137 miles. The real world distance between the Jefferson Memorial and the western edge of the map in Fallout 3 was about 40-50 miles.
From the Reddit thread on the topic:
The design of the site does not match any known ZeniMax sites, nor does the set up and infrastructure associated with it.

Bethesda kind of sucks, so I really hope they don't ruin the Mojave Wasteland.


Why can't Obsidian just make all the RPG's Sad

From earlier evidence and a few things I can't be bothered to link, it's probable that it will take place in Boston or somewhere in Massachusets.

Interesting you'd think that. I think you should bother yourself to link them.

Anyone else hoping they make an actual RPG this time?

Not like Fallout 3 and Skyrim? By that I mean, one with real choices that make real impacts in the game world. That's what Fallout is about. New Vegas delivered on it so I really hope Bethesda takes some notes from Obsidian.

How awesome would have it been if in Fallout 3 you could have sided with the Enclave for whatever reason, mine would be to spite Dad, and explore the dark possibilities of genocide, eugenics in the post-apocalyptic wasteland, and create a totalitarian governmental ruling over the wasteland inhabitants.

Try again you couldn't even do that in Fallout 2. If you want an Rpg where you can eventually start ruling everyone you'll have to keep looking or mod the game. You could side with the bad guys in Fallout 1, but that results in a Bad end immediately.
