Fallout 4 is just around the corner and like most games it comes with a review embargo for critics with publisher provided review copies. Reviews for Fallout 4 won’t be live till Monday due the embargo enforced by Bethesda. However, did you know that for the first time ever, there is an embargo on the review embargo?

Well, it is for Fallout 4.

Below you can read an e-mail Bethesda sent out to press:

We hope you’re having fun exploring the Wasteland in Fallout 4. We know your followers are eager to hear more about the game. If you’d like to reveal when your review or launch coverage will run, you can share beginning this Friday, November 6 at 10 a.m. PST.

Please keep in mind that the embargo below is still in place.

All review coverage is under embargo until Monday, November 9 at 8 a.m. EST.

This embargo also includes streaming gameplay footage or posting impressions from your experience on social media, etc.
