After sending the internet into a tizzy with a Fallout 4 countdown video, Bethesda Softworks last night held its own E3 press event where they announced a mobile game called Fallout Shelter, and a Fallout 4 Pip-Boy Edition. The special edition comes with all the typical limited edition goodies, plus a Pip-Boy replica that is designed to fit on your wrist. The Pip-Boy also includes foam inserts so users can fit their smartphone inside, and use the companion app to manipulate their in-game inventory from their wrist.
Amazon has listed the Pip-Boy Edition for pre-order again.
The Fallout 4 Pip-Boy Edition went up for pre-order this morning on both Amazon.com and Bestbuy.com before selling out in about an hour. The Pip-Boy Edition will begin shipping on November 10, 2015, the same day the standard edition of the game is also set to launch. It includes: 1 copy of Fallout 4 for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One or Windows, a physical Pip-Boy pocket guide, Vault-Tec perk poster, collectible metal packaging and Pip-Boy replica, stand and capsule case. Here's the official description from Amazon.com:"This wearable device faithfully replicates the in-game model and comes complete with RobCo Industries stand, custom-printed capsule, adjustable foam cuff, rotating knobs and lights. Designed to accommodate a variety of smartphone devices with customizable foam inserts, the Pip-Boy is the ultimate accessory for the official Pip-Boy companion mobile app that allows players to manage their in-game inventory, perks, holotapes, and more."
The free Fallout Shelter mobile game for the iPhone and iPad is now available for download on the App Store. The app allows players to build, manage and protect their own underground vault. It supports the iPhone 5 or later, iPad Mini 2 or later and iPad 3 or later.
