Bethesda releases second teaser video

Elder Scrolls, Fallout publisher launches second cryptic video showing burning flowers and obscured figure.

Bethesda today released a second cryptic video teasing an upcoming project from the Elder Scrolls and Fallout publisher. Posted to Vine, the video depicts burning sunflowers and an obscured figure in the background while crackling noises can be heard.

Bethesda vice president of marketing Pete Hines wrote on Twitter: "The plot thickens…"

The video Bethesda released yesterday shows shots of barbed wire, followed by a spinning 33 1/3 LP by The Moonlight Trio and George Shackley. Flashes of Johann Sebastian Bach and Air on the G String can later be seen.

It is unclear what the pair of videos may be teasing, though Bethesda appears to be gearing up for a more eventful 2013. The developer last week teased that it will make "considerably more noise in 2013."

Bethesda is rumored to be at work on a Boston-set Fallout game, though the company shot down talk that the teasers are Fallout-related. The publisher is also backing Resident Evil creator Shinji Mikami's upcoming Project Zwei and is rumored to be at work on a new Wolfenstein game.

Can't this be like a Stalker2?

German composer, barbed wire, sunflowers.

A lot of people were guessing a wolfenstein re-imagining. 

- I think it will be the path Doom 4 is taking... Are they really going to release wolfenstein AND doom 4 based on the ID TECH 5 engine? Only really need one. And they already stopped rage (i think) due to too many shooters.

We've already ruled out Fallout 4 due to announcement on twitter and its definately not skyrim.

The Wolfenstein hard-ons around here continue to amaze me. I've played Wolfenstein since day 1, the game is nothing to get excited about, at all. None of them are.

I hate this type of marketing. It makes me think you don't have anything good so you're trying to build hype out of nothing.

...Yeah, the 'Blair Witch' method isn't doing anything to increase my interest in whatever this is.

I can't wrap my head around why Bethesda would not release Fallout 4 next, it would fly off the shelves guaranteed.... they must have something up their sleeve

has a very japanese horror vibe to it, so I guess it is that Project Zwei game. Which I have zero interest in... A new Wolfenstein would have been really cool.

If its not Fallout 4 then...... ok but I hope they have plans for Fallout 4 in the future. And what is it with those horror elements you people want so much in Fallout? It was never supposed to be a horror game, it was and will always be based on Survival RPG

Is that Hellboy in the background?

Wow there's some seriously tight up people here. It's called a teaser. It's sole job is to grab our attention and get us talking, which it has done.

Lighten up!

@Grenadeh Yeah I don't remember playing an actually good Wolfenstein game...pretty standard shooters. I wouldn't mind another game if its well made, though.

@Alucard1475 I was going to do that... :)
BTW, it sucks. Same mental ward fugitive playing with after effects thing...

I get scared kinda easy... and come on, it's kinda freaky .. Shitty, of course, but freaky

@Alucard1475 That's the least interesting of the teasers, and tells me nothing.  And why do these reveals always have to be on IGN?  :/

@Kazedve I really don't want Bethesta to make more fallout games.

they are great at making exploration based theme parks with dungeons instead of rollercoasters..   They aren't as good as making deep RPG's which is what fallout should be.

@DarksjeiK 


because that's exactly what we need, more of the same crap. Go play Day Z or War Z.

@Total_mischief @Grenadeh 

Return to Castle Wolfenstein wasn't a bad game.  It was overhyped and had the unfortunate luck of coming out just before the MUCH better Medal of Honor: Allied Assault, but it was still a good game.

@rangeraa @SlaviksG @meta69 If it is fallour 4 i will be happy. But i agree with rangeraa, stalker is incredible, and i would be happy too if this is to be a stalker game. The evil within, well its something that we will see in the future.

@Grenadeh @Arcturuss @Kazedve WTF u're saying that Fallout 1 and 2 weren't deep? They were the best RPGs and most atmospheric RPGs in the world WTH is wrong with you.
