Minecraft Gets a Pip-Boy Gadget in New Post Apocalyptic Mod

A lot of hype has been going around with Bethesda’s new Fallout title. While fans eagerly await the official announcement of Fallout 4 and endlessly watch its newly released teaser trailer, you may also want to know that there is a new post-apocalyptic mod in the works for Minecraft that comes with a Pip-Boy. So if you want to get into the Fallout hype and are a Minecraft player, you may be interested in this new mod.

The mod, named Project Wasteland, received a video earlier this week. It showed what players would expect from it and how the Pip-Boy works in Minecraft’s world. From the looks of it, it really does seem pretty similar to Fallout’s version in terms of look and feel, as well as interaction.

There have been a few pics showing the mod’s post apocalyptic scenario, accompanied by a video that illustrates the day and night cycle of the environment. From my point of view, the mod really does have a lot of potential and strangely, by watching the video, it does make you feel more like in a Fallout game rather than in a Minecraft environment.

More detailed information about the mod is scarce at the moment, but its developers are bound to release more information soon. Maybe even before the official Fallout 4 announcement at E3. In the meantime, you can head on over to the mod’s forum page for more information. So what do you think? Will you give this mod a try?

Fallout 4 to Be Released for Current-Gen Only, Possible Reveal at E3

There have been some talks about Bethesda’s latest title, Fallout 4, but so far nothing certain. However, a few insiders recently came forth and hinted that the company is planning to showcase the title at the Electronic Entertainment Expo this year.

Bethesda is said to be working on a post-apocalyptic New York and Chicago environment for Fallout 4, though it has not yet been confirmed. What we do know, is that the title will be current-gen only.

“Bethesda is aiming for an impressive scale and atmosphere with Fallout 4, […] They’re only developing it on current gen and PC.”

The inside sources have apparently stated that 2015 is too “crowded” for a release this big, so we will not be expecting Bethesda to release the title sooner than 2016.

“2015 will be a great year for gamers,” “With all the exclusives and third-party games releasing this year, it’s going to be crowded with great titles.”

Though Fallout 4 fans will be disappointed by the release date, they should still take into account that the game will be released on current-gen. What this means is that the title would be able to take full advantage of newer technology and deliver an enhanced and detailed post-apocalyptic experience with even bigger environments; possibly some gameplay enhancements as well.
