Last week at E3 2015, Bethesda Softworks revealed plans to release a collector’s edition of their upcoming post-apocalypse game Fallout 4, which will include a real Pip-Boy housing that allows you to slot your smartphone inside and wear it on your hand while using it in tandem with a second-screen app. Now the publisher has revealed that the Pip-Boy will come with foam inserts that will fit a number of smartphones, including most of Apple’s iPhone models.
In addition, using the customizable foam insert you should be able to fit most other popular smartphone devices. As we wanted to stay faithful to the dimensions of the in-game model, any smartphones larger than the models listed will not fit inside the wearable device. For these larger devices, our Pip-Boy companion app will still be available.
Yes, that does mean that the Pip-Boy won’t fit the large 5.5-inch iPhone 6 Plus. The Fallout 4 Pip-Boy collectors edition is now sold out for North American residents, so if you managed to buy one you are very lucky. Europeans will still have a shot of buying the collector’s edition, with Bethesda stating, “We are still working out details on final inventory for European territories and expect to have information early next week.”
