Fallout fans were going nuts over the real-life Pip-Boy sleeve Bethestha announced last June. Yes, it is an actual Pip-Boy that works with your smartphone and a companion app. It is meant to connect to Fallout 4’s in-game information.
Whether you were lucky enough to put your name to one of these Fallout 4 Pip-Boy Edition bundles or not, you will still be able to enjoy the app and its full functionality. In fact, the game is not even out yet (it comes out on November 10th), but the official Pip-Boy app has already reached the Google Play Store.
In a nutshell, the app will allow you to interact with Fallout 4, whether you are logged into your console or not. The Pip-Boy app can remember your status and allow access to all your data. You can even play some mini-games, as well as check your Map, radio and stats. You gotta love second-screen experiences, a practice which is becoming much more popular with the proliferation of connected gadgets.
Bethesda is definitely not staying idle until the release of Fallout 4. Fallout Shelter is one of the most fun and addictive games I have played. That one is now available, as is Fallout C.H.A.T., a new messaging application. These, along witht eh new Pip-Boy app, should keep you busy and excited until the release of the big game.
Until then, stay tuned to Android Authority for more details to come, and don’t forget to hit the comments to let us know what you think of the Pip-Boy app. Did any of you get the actual sleeve?!
