The collector's edition of the game will include an actual Pip-Boy wearable sleeve that you can slot your phone into, meaning you'll be able to access all of the features just by glancing down at your IRL arm. "As far as stupid gimmicks go, I chose the best f**king one," said Bethesda's Todd Howard on stage at E3.


In addition to including the highly-anticipated game, Fallout 4 Pip-Boy Edition includes:

Pip-Boy Replica, Stand and Capsule Case. 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.

Physical Pip-Boy Pocket Guide. Featuring handy illustrations and chock full of Vault-Tec® approved tips, this manual is the ultimate how-to pocket guide for using and maintaining your new Pip-Boy.

Power Armor Collectible Metal Packaging. Exclusive to the Pip-Boy Edition, this decorated metal case is the ultimate fan collectible.

PRICE: $119.99, €129.99, or £99.99




The game has a 2D-animation look playing off the Pip-Boy characters of the Falloutseries. The game looks like a cross between SimTower and the base management system in XCOM: Enemy Unknown.


Residents are able to perform various activities, and reproduce to make new residents. Parts of the shelter serve various purposes meant to help the underground community grow.

Inspired by Progress Quest, XCOM, SimCity and FTL
Play as the Overseer of your own vault
Howard mentioned working with people from Apple on the game, so that's probably why no Android version right now.
Free game, no paywalls, no time waiting for stuff to be built
Can pay for extra loot but not necessary

The game is free on iOS tonight. It won't have paywall timers and won't require an internet connection to play.
