Fallout 4 teaser site revealed as hoax, creator does AMA & says it cost $900
On the one hand, balls. On the other I’m not even mad, that’s kind of amazing. The Survivor 2299 site that appeared to be teasing Fallout 4 has been exposed as a hoax by the man behind it, who then took to Reddit to answer questions.
According to ‘DCHoaxer’ the whole thing cost him “approximately $900″ and said that while Bethesda has contacted him, his “lips are sealed” as to what the conversation involved. DCHoaxer describes himself as “‘one of these ‘selfish bastards with a lot of money’ so I wanted to release a CGI Trailer. But Pete Killed my plans. Maybe I’ll release it later along with the script, so somebody else can use it!”
The level of detail behind the story and messages seems to be the result of it originally being “a big DLC for New Vegas” but “I don’t have any team so this project is dead”. I’m guessing he means a mod thing.
If you were wondering he says he’s had 14 death threats.
