To go with it, Bethesda has created a custom app that functions as a second-screen experience. Offering his own thoughts on gimmick second-screen apps, Todd Howard described them as "usually just stupid gimmicks," but said this "is the best f**king one I've seen."
As for the in-game Pip-Boy, Bethesda has re-designed the interface to be more entertaining. During the Fallout 4 demo at its press conference, the little on-screen Vault Boy is shown animating as the player navigates around the device.
Also included in the Fallout 4 Pip-Boy are mini-games you can find in the world and then play. During the demo we're shown one that looks to be inspired by Nintendo's arcade classic Donkey Kong, and another that resembles Missile Command.
Check out a few images of the Pip-Boy and its companion app below.
As previously indicated, Fallout 4 will take place in Boston. During the trailer we are briefly shown an area called "Scollay Square," which is located in real-world Boston. The USS Constitution, which is docked in the city, Bunker Hill Monument, and the Massachusetts State House are also seen in the video.
