Fallout 3 teaser next week

Bethesda counts down.

Bethesda Softworks will release a teaser trailer for its upcoming role-playing game Fallout 3 next week.

A count-down timer has been running on the official site since the beginning of May, accompanied by a new piece of concept art each week. And the most recent of these is what appears to a wrecked White House with pipes and derelict buildings dominating its immediate surroundings.

Although this will be the third game in post-apocalyptic series, it's also the first Fallout game developed by the award winning Oblivion team. Bethesda bought the license to the series from Interplay in 2004 and hopes it can produce a worthy successor to the two very popular previous instalments from the late '90s.

Little else is known about Fallout 3; which platforms it'll be on or when we can expect a release. However, it's highly unlikely anything other than a preview will be available before the end of the year, and we expect it will show its face on PC, Xbox 360, and PS3.

It looks like we'll just have to wait until 5th June for that teaser trailer, then.
