Thousands Of People Have Watched Leaked Fallout 4 Footage On Pornhub

Last week, some lucky Gamescom attendees got a chance to see new Fallout 4 footage behind closed doors. Many gaming websites have reported on it; the new Fallout footage is not a mystery. Thing is, Bethesda hasn’t actually released this footage for the world to see…not that this has stopped fans from finding creative and sneaky ways of viewing it anyway.

Yesterday, the Fallout hive went into a frenzy as footage from the Gamescom presentation started leaking online. If you were fast enough, you could have watched it on YouTube. As of this writing, though, most of those popular YouTube destinations are dead links:

Thousands of People Have Watched Leaked Fallout 4 Footage On Pornhub

In response, fans turned to other means of sharing the footage, such as file-hosting sites. These, too, sometimes got hosed — or got overloaded with requests, making it difficult to watch the footage. And so Fallout fans have turned to more unorthodox video hosting services, like Pornhub (NSFW, obviously!!) to host said Fallout 4 footage. Titled ‘HIDDEN CAMERA SHOWS AUDIENCE TEASED BY BIG BUTT MAN IN TIGHTS LIVE,’ the seven-minute-long video showcases off-camera footage of Fallout 4. Hilariously, it’s tagged under categories like ‘big arse’ ‘POV’ and ‘homemade.’ The singular comment on the video reads “Came all over my monitor.”

I’ll be frank. The footage looks like garbage; the recording was clearly taken incognito, which means that the leaker couldn’t be precious about how they were recording the footage. This has not deterred people from getting excited about the footage anyway. Right now the footage has been watched by almost 15,000 people on this source alone. Funnily enough, though, it’s actually one of the better options on the web right now. YouTube is kind of a bust, and downloading rando files from the internet that promise you juicy Fallout 4 footage isn’t great either. Many of the websites hosting the footage are rather slow, presumably because of the high demand for this footage. Assuming you don’t mind dicks and vaginas crowding your peripheral vision (or the occasional pop-up), watching the Gamescom footage on Pornhub isn’t a half-bad choice. (I can’t believe I just typed that sentence.)

That said, the thing that gets me the most about this situation is how Bethesda is handling Fallout 4 footage in the first place. The game releases in a few months. I understand that marketing requires doling out information carefully, but it still feels like Bethesda is being weird about how new footage is released. QuakeCon’s Fallout 4 demo, for example, was not livestreamed. The footage eventually made its way online through Bethesda’s official channels, to be sure. It still felt like a strange choice to livestream many of the other games at that convention, but not one of the most hyped games of all time. Surely Bethesda has noticed that Fallout 4 is driving people nuts?

It’s likely that this Gamescom footage will be uploaded by Bethesda at some point, too. But for now, people are taking whatever they can get — even if it means watching shoddy Fallout 4 footage on Pornhub. I hear they have a pretty active Fallout 4 fanbase.



    Haha, brilliant!

  • Anyone else feel zero sympathy for these companies? Look, if you want to specifically launch a video at an event, that’s one thing, but to launch it at an event, then think you can keep it secret for weeks/months without it leaking? You’re dreaming. At least suicide squad got it right and just released it when it leaked, unlike those deadpool arse hats. Then you have idiots like the people who made Hurt Locker, who wanted to win awards a YEAR ahead of any cinema release, and then sued like crazy because people wanted to see what all the fuss was about.

  • Nothing really remarkable about the footage.. not sure why they want it kept a secret…

    One thing I’ve noticed is that a lot of people who showcase the game tend to avoid the use of VATS. I have seen one piece of footage that used the system twice in total, but every other piece of footage has not used it at all. VATS is such a Fallout trademark thing.. I would have expected to see it used more in the showcases of the game.

    • i thinks it mroe to do with the fact that while vats has been given some changes the actual shooting outside vats has been changed more so bethesda want to show that off as much as possible

      • That’s probably a good thing. Shooting without VATS was pretty abominable in FO:3.

        • indeed it was, it was much better in NV with addition of iron sights but still far away from other FPSes

          • Unfortunately, I think a big part of the problem with the shooting wasn’t even to do with the mechanics of aiming and firing, but also what you were aiming at. The movement of enemies was often janky, erratic.

          • part of it was due to weapon repair and skill type and the rest was just RNG even with 100 in energyweapons and guns with fully repaired weapons id still get those lazer shots that wouldnt hit the broadside of a barn

  • bethesda has always done this though. hell in skyrim they only showed the bleakfalls barrow presentation. journalists were actually getting sick and tired of seeing the same footage over and over again.

  • There have been twitch streams popping up for the past few days too. They get taken down, but last I checked there were 95 live streams up.
