Bethesda has released an app call “C.H.A.T.” which is a short form for Communications Hub and Transmitters. The app is free to download and is available for both iOS and Android devices.
The app has its own text style and a number of GIFS, most of which feature “Fallout” mascot Pip-Boy, as reported by Eurogamer. Most of the Emojis are quite humorous, especially in contrast to the dark and gritty themes of the “Fallout” franchise.
IGN has also confirmed that there will be 60 Emojis in the app, most of which also feature Pip-Boy. Some of these Emojis include his signature “thumbs up” position and a “thumbs down” one as well.
Fans should get a kick out of the GIFS, since they’re black and white like the most recent YouTube videos showcasing the game’s special abilities. The Emojis should provide some laughs as well, since a number of Pip-Boy’s positions come from the video games.
If nothing else, this should provide some fun while texting any friends who are interested in the “Fallout” series. The app doesn’t really have any significance to “Fallout 4,” but considering how it’s free and adds variety to texting options, it should be something for fans of the beloved series to download.
This isn’t the first time Bethesda has released a mobile app in preparation for “Fallout 4.” Just a few months ago the company released a mobile game called “Fallout Shelter,” which had players taking care of one of the vaults by managing the food and choosing who gets to defend it from possible threats.
Bethesda is also planning a mobile card game called “Elder Scrolls Legends,” which is a spinoff title from the “Elder Scrolls” roleplaying games. Not a lot of news has been released about the card game, but the company stated that the next time people hear about it, the game will be available already.
“Fallout 4” comes out next week on Nov. 10 for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One and Windows PC. There are also a number of special editions available for pre-order.
