‘Fallout 4’ is a big new video game from Bethesda that’s available for PC, Xbox One, and Playstation 4. The game is open-world and takes place in a post-apocalyptic Boston in the year 2077. The main inventory of the game is controlled via a wrist-mounted device in the game called a Pip Boy. In a surprising twist, Bethesda has chosen to create a real-world app that replicates the function of the in-game Pip Boy via a mobile app. The name of the app is ‘Fallout Pip Boy’ and will let a user connect their mobile device to their gaming system so that they can control all the in-game menus from their phone. This will let users access an inventory, check out the map, and track stats. Having a phone be a constant connection to the video game world is an interesting concept, and while the ‘Fallout Pip Boy’ app is cool, it’s only the first step in what could become a very useful and creative avenue for connected content.
