Fallout 4 Comes With a Real-Life Pip Boy

By Gerald Lynch on at

There are premium editions of games, and then there's THIS. As if we needed more reason to be excited about Fallout 4, I'm now sure Bethesda just want's to start a flame in my heart; Fallout 4 will come with a real-life Pip Boy.

Well, the as-yet-unpriced-but-certain-to-be-super-expensive "Collector's Edition" will, anyway. A cosplayer's dream, the wrist-mounted wearable includes a slot for your smartphone and, when a partner app is downloaded, hooks up with the game to offer all the same functionality as the in-game Pip Boy system.

In previous Fallout games, this included everything from item management to map reading, skill selections and radio tuning, so hopefully all that's accounted for here.

Revealed at Bethesda's E3 press conference which took place in the wee hours of this morning out in LA, the news was accompanied by a full-on presentation of Fallout 4 gameplay, as well as a release date for the long awaited game. Hitting stores November 10th, you're going to have to really save those bottlecaps if you're hoping to get hold of this Pip Boy edition, no doubt.
