A secretly filmed recording of Fallout 4 gameplay has been published on the adult video website Pornhub, amid a game of cat-and-mouse between Bethesda's legal team and those who want to spread the footage online.

Low-quality amateur video of the post-apocalypse RPG was captured, against Bethesda's wishes, during a behind-closed-doors demonstration at Gamescom. The off-screen picture is partially obscured by other journalists in attendance, but nevertheless shows new glimpses of Fallout 4's baseline gameplay mechanics.

Snippets of the video show the game's unnamed hero mowing down a horde of zombies, and aiming through sights on an automatic weapon, then later, accessing computer terminals, lock-picking, and interacting with his Pip-Boy.

Since the seven-minute video first emerged, Bethesda's copyright and legal team has embarked on a takedown operation, with the video being pulled multiple times from sites such as YouTube, as well as other file-sharing websites.

However, for reasons that are not clear, the video has not been removed from Pornhub. GameSpot's editorial team has decided against linking to it.

A community of Fallout 4 enthusiasts, determined to spread the footage, have amassed various links on the Sugarbombed forum. Fans eager to see the new gameplay have been warned that some websites, claiming to offer Fallout 4 footage to download, may in fact be spreading computer viruses and spyware.

The Fallout 4 release date has been set for November 10 across Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC. It is expected to offer more than 400 hours of content for its most dedicated fans.
