If you missed out on one of those real-life Pip-Boy editions of Fallout 4, then Bethesda has some good news for you. Crediting high stats in both Charisma and Luck, the studio has managed to squeeze “some more” of the limited editions out of the factories.
Available in even more limited quantities than previously, this second-release is only available in the United States and Canada. Don’t be too sad though – Bethesda is “making sure” that Pip-Boys are allocated overseas, too.
The full-scale Pip-Boy device replicates the one worn in game, with one subtle difference. You can simply slot your smartphone into the Pip-Boy (a “wide variety” are supported), and use the Fallout 4 companion app to manage all of your in-game Pip-Boy menu functions.
…no Pip-Boy? No worries: The companion app will still work just as well on a standard phone without the extra device. You just, y’know, won’t look as cool.
Fallout 4 is set to hit PS4, Xbox One and PC on November 10, 2015.
