The new Fallout 4 companion app is out and is already up and running. We tested out the app ourselves earlier today and had zero issues with the device on the PC version of the game.
The app will let users scroll through their Pip-Boy functions on an iPhone or Android powered device (check compatibility for older devices) including changing gear, playing mini-games, monitor your inventory and use the map. If you bought the very-rare Pip-Boy edition, you will have a very cool holder to use with the app but it is not required to use the companion app itself, that is open to everyone.
If you don’t have the game (and you should’t really) you won’t be able to do all that much with the app, but you can use the “demo” functions to see how everything works. You will be able to try out Atomic Command, one of the many minigames that you will find within Fallout 4.
If you want to pick-up the Fallout Pip-Boy App you can find it at iTunes App Store and/or Google Play. In the game players will take on the role of the sole survivor of Vault 111. You will soon enter a world destroyed by nuclear war. Bethesda teases the game stating, “Every second is a fight for survival, and every choice is yours. Only you can rebuild and determine the fate of the Wasteland. Welcome home.”
Fallout 4 will hit Xbox One, PS4 and PC on November 10, 2015. You can pre-order Fallout 4 the game now to be set for release day and pic-up the physical Vault-Tec Perk Poster from Amazon. Which is just more fully colorized retro fun for the ultimate Wasteland survivor. There is also the “Fallout 4 Vault Dweller’s Survival Guide Collector’s Edition: Prima Official Game Guide” to consider.
