Getting Fallout 4? Here's everything you need to know

Fallout 4 will be out in just over a month, which means it is now socially acceptable to orient all aspects of your life around it. Bethesda has published a list of important release information to keep in mind; all it's missing are phone numbers for a babysitter and pizza delivery.

Assuming you're buying Fallout 4 digitally, the game will be playable at 12:01 a.m. local time on November 10, or Eastern Time for all US vault dwellers - which means Pacific folks can start playing at 9:01 p.m. on November 9. Fallout 4 will take up anywhere from 28 to 35GB on consoles depending on territory and languages (it does have more dialogue than Skyrim and Fallout 3 put together), so make sure you allot some space ahead of time.

If one glowing screen isn't enough for you, the Pip-Boy companion app will also be released alongside Fallout 4. Those much-sought-after Fallout 4 Pip-Boy editions will include pre-made foam inserts for iPhone 6/6S, iPhone 5/5S, iPhone 4/4S, Samsung Galaxy S5, Samsung Galaxy S4, and Samsung Galaxy S3, along with a customizable insert. Just don't expect it to fit massive phablets - it is supposed to look like an actual Pip-Boy, not an iPad Mini molded to your arm.
