Fallout 4 speculation is heating up even more after another section of the Survivor 2299 viral site was discovered this week.
A hidden page on the website was discovered and has a slightly different format and text.
“SY684> OVERRIDING PROTOCOL VT-15812 WITH KEY ‘7667’,” it reads. “…UNKNOWN ENEMY DETECTED.”
It also has garbled, coded text like the other Survivor page that can only be viewed if one highlights it.
“REV FEAR – MGSS LHM’H EVHV KBIM’R QIUBMU. B’L Z YYG MN HBM ZQSUB ZZAY,” it reads.
Inc Gamers posted that the message translates to “THEY DON’T KNOW WHAT’S COMING. IT’S A KEY TO THE GREAT GAME.” This could be in reference to NPC Desmond Lockheart’s phrase about a “great game” in Fallout 3.
The new website doesn’t include the constant beeping morse in the background.
“CALLING BLACK ROW OUTSTATION. REPORTING SUSPICIOUS ACTIVITY NEAR SECURE LOCATION: THE INSTITUTE…,” reads an attempt at translating the morse code.
Over the weekend, the main Survivor 2299 page also issued an update.
“KVNGR REV ALPHA PPS VT PIZ UHMYLPVOQ CM XHWMZP. NBJB SPI’F BYQS QT D’Y BYFGEOB FI VQDYL MAQ. -NGQHT 5120- Nuclear winter has come,” reads the new code that’s been on the website.
In the Fallout sub-Reddit, users deciphered the message to say: “THE INSTITUTE IS SEALED. THEY WON’T HELP US I’M HEADING TO BLACK ROW. -TBNLS 5120-”
The “Institute” may be in reference to something that was mentioned in the Fallout 3 games. Fallout 3 NPC Dr. Zimmer makes mention of it, according to the Escapist, but there isn’t much context.
Other morse code messages posted over the weekend include, “Calling Black Row Out Station ground is safe to land Level 4 breach. No survivors, 899 corpses. We are leaving Vault 119. Over, back to you.” Another also says, “Calling all stations, calling all stations, calling all stations, This is Vault 119 SOS level 4 under attack, Overseer is Dead, Repeat, SOS level 4 under attack, Overseer is Dead, We won’t make it,” according to Inc Gamers.
The Overseer refers to the Vault Overseer characters that have been present throughout the Fallout series.
Neither Bethesda or ZeniMax have commented on the Survivor 2299 website and there’s been no mention of a Fallout 4 in the works.
The Survivor 2299 website has apparently been registered by ZeniMax, but it’s not clear.
There has bas been speculation that the whole thing is a viral hoax.
