One of the worst-kept secrets in gaming is a secret no more: Bethesda has just officially announced Fallout 4. The company launched a countdown timer yesterday teasing something Fallout-related, and as expected that turned out to be the next big game in the series, though the news leaked out just a bit ahead of time on the game's official site.

Rumors had predicted that the latest game in the RPG series will be set in a post-apocalyptic Boston, and based on the first trailer that definitely appears to be the case. Other than that, though, we don't really have any information, as Bethesda is likely saving up the juiciest details for later this month at E3 in Los Angeles; the publisher will be hosting its very own E3 keynote for the first time this year. We do know that it's coming to PC, PS4, and Xbox One, we'll probably also get a few more details when the countdown timer ends at 10AM ET today.

Fallout 4 will be the first game in the series since 2010's New Vegas, and it's also not the only big game reveal coming from Bethesda: the publisher will finally be showing off the new, revamped Doom game at E3 as well.
