The NCR Ranger combat armor, colloquially known as the Black Armor, is the iconic armor worn by NCR Ranger Veterans. Originally military-grade armor used by Los Angeles Police Department riot squads, this combat outfit is typically worn with a matching military helmet with built-in low light optics, a dual infrared and LED light, and respirator. It is traditionally worn with the Desert Rangers style duster and a set of rodeo jeans. The Black Armor strikes fear into any enemy of the New California Republic as they stare down the barrel of a Ranger Sequoia.

It's been two weeks since Fallout 4 was revealed during Bethesda's pre-E3 E3 conference. The Fallout fan community has exploded like a supermutant hit with a rocket from a Rockwell BigBazooka. Let's recap what we know!

E3. One of the most important, if not the most important industry events of the year. This year, it's special, as Bethesda Game Studios has revealed the gameplay for Fallout 4. So, what did we take away from it? Here are the brass tacks.

There has been plenty of rumors regarding details of the upcoming Fallout 4 release. Some of them claimed that the game will be initially released for PC, Xbox One, and Playstation 4, and later for Xbox 360 and Playstation 3. This last-gen release was said to be using Skyrim's Creation engine instead of the brand new one used for last-gen consoles and PC.

Well, according to Matt "Gstaff" Grandstaff, Bethesda's Community Lead, this is just not true. Last-gen consoles won't be seeing Fallout 4 release after all:

It is not coming to 360 and PS3, the stuff we’re doing will never work there.

Some of you may consider this good news, others may think otherwise. But at least we got some clarity here. And, yeah, no last-gen limitations whatsoever.

With the world poised on the brink of war, Vault-Tec is reporting a record-- [cut short]

Folks, it seems we've got some breaking news, stand by.

We seem to have lost contact with out affiliate stations, stand by.

We, we do have coming in confirmed reports of nuclear detonations.

My god.The soldiers were right.

War. War never changes.

It's official, folks, Fallout 4 has been announced by Bethesda Game Studios on the official Fallout site:

It's time for the hype train to officially depart station Skepticism and head for station Release. What do we know about it thus far?

Earlier this morning, the official Fallout Facebook page, and the Twitters of Peter Hines and Bethesda Game Studios posted the hashtag #PleaseStandBy and linked to the official Bethesda Softworks website, which depicts a television test pattern and countdown, set to expire at 8:00 AM GMT on June 3. As they do, the tenacious Fallout subreddit has uncovered other "stuff" (for lack of a better word) elsewhere on the BethSoft website, including found by /u/anorion, /assets/video-glitch.png found by /u/SubZer0G (which /u/hoxiwolf says is just static) and a bunch of other assets (like icons and ratings) found by /u/SubZer0G again.

With E3 2015 just around the corner, and this being posted specifically to the Fallout portion of BethSoft's website, this is pretty damning evidence that this isn't not something. All we can do now is sit, and await the big reveal when the count down counts down.
