Fallout 4 is finished and well on its way to your local retailer, doorstep, or hard drive, according to a celebratory tweet from Bethesda.

The mention of “27 versions” appears to be a (cruel) joke that the nine copies per platform pictured are the only ones Bethesda has made. At least, we hope it’s a joke. If there are millions of gamers who can’t get a copy of Fallout 4 in a month’s time, the ensuing chaos may actually transform the real world into a post-apocalyptic wasteland.

While many other outlets reported the tweet as an announcement that the game has “gone gold,” there’s a reason Bethesda didn’t use that language. The phrase specifically refers to the milestone when final code is shipped out to manufacturers to be pressed onto discs (or to digital distributors). Given that the image depicts shrink-wrapped retail copies, the manufacturing process began some time ago.

Now, the final countdown until the game’s release begins. Fallout 4 goes on sale November 10th for the Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC.

Emma’s early gaming was mostly done in secret, as the only gamer in a family of normal people. She still retains skills from this dark period in her life, such as the ability to teleport instantly across the house away from the computer, and holds a gold medal in the Olympic sport of “Hide the Gameboy.” Sorry, Mom, now you know.
