Fallout Pip-Boy app is out now for iOS and Android

With just five days away from the release of Fallout 4, Bethesda has release its companion app for the post-apocalyptic RPG. The Fallout Pip-Boy app was released onto the iTunes and Google Play Stores early this morning, and while the app won't do much at this point - it's a companion app, after all - you can nose around some of the options and play one of the mini-games that will be available - Atomic Command (ie. Missile Command.)

Are you excited for the upcoming release? Eager to put your smartphone in your very own Pip-Boy casing when it arrives? Sobbing into the rubber bands you'll be using as an alternative because you couldn't get hold of one? Let us know in the comments!

Watch Dogs: ctOS Mobile Hands-On Preview | Good Griefing!

Companion App coming to iOS & Android
Developer: Ubisoft MontrealUbisoft Reflections
Publisher: Ubisoft

Aiden Pearce has a lot on his plate. As a lone vigilante hacker standing against the police and corrupt corporations that dominate near-future Chicago, he'll have to rely on his wits, hacking skills and trigger finger to survive. Driving at insane speeds one moment and remotely infiltrating CCTV cameras the next, an antihero's work is never done.

However, he'll also have to deal with me griefing him when I'm bored on the bus thanks to a staggeringly ambitious companion app.

Explanations are in order. ctOS Mobile is one of the first synchronous companion apps to release with a major AAA title, allowing iOS and Android users to challenge console Watch Dogs players while out and about, or sprawled on the sofa behind them. Once you've freely download the app and logged in with a Uplay account, you can set routes and courses for your target to follow around the sprawling city streets, along with a time limit to beat. If they accept your challenge while playing, a simple matter of pressing up on the D-Pad, it's game on. While Aiden scampers to reach each checkpoint as quickly as possible, it's up to you to stop him by any means necessary; a console and tablet player both competing in the same game.
