Fallout 4 teaser site says ‘Welcome to the Institute’, messages chart the fall of Vault 119

New info on Fallout 4 as the thesurvivor2299.com teaser site updates with a new message mentioning ‘The Institute’ a nod to the Massachusetts Institute of Technology in Boston and Fallout 4′s rumoured setting.

Fallout 4 teaser site says ‘Welcome to the Institute’

The current message on the site first appeared as follows:

“AK: {REV _____ 5120} [CPS] PASS {LOC BB YEAR LET} – | H EY XHWHD OF GXSIHS EVE, ZFR G’K ATGEVY ROCL’JM QEOX.GTJX ZSFF QRETYHA HWEUHG WG VKKP HHWE. MCCCZNU SQ UUE VMXECEDCZ. MFE BNMC NEGE QLZCR TP MZ MR YUOG ACBSM. |”

Apparently that translates as to this:

“I AM SORRY TO INFORM YOU, BUT I’M AFRAID THEY’RE DEAD. YOUR LIFE SUPPORT SYSTEM IS JUST FINE. WELCOME TO THE INSTITUTE. THE ONLY SAFE PLACE TO BE IN THIS WORLD.”

The messages have been appearing on the site requiring translation usually via some sort of alphabet key that’s often a clue in its own right. The year the MIT was built has been referenced for example. It all seems to point to some sort of massacre or battle at Vault 119 (which hasn’t been referenced in Fallout lore before) and mentions the Quabbin Reservoir, another Massachusetts location.

Here’s a bunch of previous messages which have been translated via Reddit and this expansive Google Doc.
