Fallout 4 Special Edition will come with a real life Pip-Boy wearable that works with your Android phone

Fallout fans will appreciate this one. The special edition of Fallout 4 (read about the new game on Xbox One Daily) will come with a Pip-Boy arm attachment to use as a second screen accessory for the console title.

If you’re not aware, Pip-Boy was the smart watch of olden times. It’s big and clunky by today’s standards, but for those in the Fallout universe it’s a necessary tool that delivers information on your environment, enemies, your inventory and even your own vital health.

The attachment will work with your phone and show you information about the game in real time, so you can refer to it in a jiffy instead of pulling up the digital version in-game. You just drop your phone in (there will be foam inserts to customize the cradle for different smartphone sizes) and it’ll be just like the abomination you happen to find in the game.

But if you don’t plan to buy that $120 special edition you’ll be happy to know that the companion app can still be used with Fallout 4 just as it would inside the Pip-Boy. The app should be available the day the game launches (November 10th) so be sure to check Google Play for the download once it arrives.

The "Google Phone" sounded too awesome to pass up, so I bought a G1. The rest is history. And yes, I know my name isn't Wilson.

  1. And this will go nicely next to every single cool extra gadget/toy/shirt I got with pre-orders. Fun factor wears off easily within a couple of days

  2. Is it going to work with android when the game is released, or will it work with iOS, and we’ll get the functionality ‘later’?

    1. Todd Howard said during the E3 presentation that the companion app for the game will work on 11-10-15 for both iOS and Android.

      1. Even though its confirmed that the companion app will work on both iOS and ANdroid, there is nothing official i’ve read that implies that the physical Pip-Boy would work or fit with Android devices (or other sized iphones). How do you make something like this that would fit all size phones? My guess is that you can’t. Many people and articles are making the wrong assumptions and the misinformation has been spreading like wildfire. I feel sorry for people that have ordered based on this assumption (except for the ones buying it to resell)

  3. Not enough to make me pay that much for the Beta version. Everyone knows that Buginfesta games only become “finished” about 1-2 years after release, when most of the game-breaking bugs have been fixed with updates. By that time, I’m sure you can get this much cheaper.

  4. pip boy and oculus rift together would have been pretty cool but u would need 2 phones. mobile phones are the center of tech these days

  5. what if someone calls while ur phone is in there?
