Fallout 4’s Companion App Now Available To Download
Fallout 4 is achingly close, for those getting the game on release day and one of the big ancillary appeals for Bethesda’s upcoming post-apocalyptic RPG is the Pip-Boy Companion App.
This app, which will allow players to interact with their Pip-Boy devices outside of the game, has just been released on the Google Play and Apple stores for their respective sets of devices.

The app allows players to use their phones to link to and emulate the in-game Pip-Boy, which has had a minor design overhaul from Fallout 3 and Fallout: New Vegas. This app will let players interface with their in-game inventories, stats and radio channels, and manipulate them from outside the game, in what will presumably speed up the character management process which has been central to Bethesda’s Fallout 4 design.
The app also has a mode specifically intended for the Fallout 4 Pip-Boy Edition, which comes with a Pip-Boy replica in which owners can mount their phones for full in-game functionality.
Unless you’re incredibly lucky, you won’t have Fallout 4 to use with the app yet, but it comes with a demo mode, for users to preview its functionality and see what Bethesda have added to the comprehensive character management system.
