Do you love video games? Do you love video games set in a post-apocalyptic world? Those who answered "yes" to either will have definitely heard of the role-playing video game series Fallout, set in the 22nd and 23rd centuries on a post-nuclear earth. On Wednesday, after the end of a 24-hour countdown on its newly launched website that sent Twitter into a frenzy, Bethesda officially unveiled Fallout 4, the highly anticipated follow-up in the universally acclaimed Fallout series.
Set to the eerie Ink Spots cover of "It's All Over But The Crying," the trailer flashes between a vividly colored Boston — yes, it's located in Boston — filled with families and well laid-out kitchens and a German shepherd running through a dreary world of destruction. Otherwise, the trailer reveals little else about the game.
Video game publisher Bethesda announced that Fallout will be available to play on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and Windows PC, but did not give a release date — which means it's either a ways away or really close, but who really knows?
"The time and technology have allowed us to be more ambitious than ever, game director Todd Howard said in a statement. "We've never been more excited about a game, and we can't wait to share it."

If the trailer leaves you wanting, more details about Fallout 4 will be revealed at Bethesda's E3 press conference on June 14 at 10 p.m. ET.
