‘We like the Pipboy so much, we made one in real life!’
As expected, Fallout 4 will have the Pipboy, and we got a very good look at Fallout 4’s interpretation of it. It looks absolutely amazing, fun to navigate, and alongside delivering players with a nice, fun to use UI in game, also features loads of neat, world building distractions, such as minigames based on classic arcade games such as Donkey Kong.
Bethesda’s Todd Howard confirmed that they have also made a real life Pipboy, that will be included in the game’s collector’s edition; the watch will also dock into your smartphone.
That’s not all, either- Bethesda also announced that the Pipboy will be available as a smartphone app for your Android or iOS phone, and it will give you a ‘second screen experience,’ synching with your copy of the game. ‘Second screen experiences are gimmicky,’ Howard said, ‘but our gimmick is the best fucking one,’ he said unapologetically, to general laughter.
The Pipboy and the app both ship alongside the game. Stay tuned to GamingBolt for more coverage.
