All the Fallout fans are patiently (not really) waiting for the release of Fallout 4, which will gloriously be in 4 days (November 10th). We have seen Bethesda recently release the Fallout C.H.A.T. to keep us busy until the console game is out. But now we see a new companion app released by the name of Fallout Pip-Boy [Free].
What the app actually does is allow you to interact with your console (Xbox One, PS4, or PC) as you play Fallout 4. It is usable when you are away from home but is best used when you are within the range of your home to check your Stats, Inventory, Data, Map, and Radio. This sounds great, doesn’t it? But there is more! You can also play your holotape games (mini-games which exist within the Fallout game itself) such as Atomic Command, which definitely sounds fun to any Fallout fan.
To connect the app to your game requires a simple process. Once you launch the app, toggle the ”Pip-Boy App Enabled” setting and it will start scanning for any copies that are running on the same local Wi-Fi network. Once that is done, you can reconnect to the same local IP address immediately to synchronize it each time. That is why it is necessary to be connected to the same Wi-Fi network that your Fallout 4 is connected to, so that you can receive live updated data.
Finally, we have clearly seen that Bethesda is interested in the mobile platform, and this was very well demonstrated with their latest apps: Fallout Shelter, Fallout C.H.A.T., and now with Fallout Pip-Boy. Who knows, maybe we will get the Fallout games ported to mobile very soon. To demonstrate how great the upcoming Fallout game is, make sure to check the official launch trailer for Fallout 4 below.
