But before trying Vortex you might want to know…

Does Fallout 4 mobile version exist?

I was among the first to ask that question when the game launched a few years back. I loved the game and wanted to play it everywhere.

But I couldn’t.

Because Bethesda Game Studios did NOT release Fallout 4 on mobile platforms.

Although there is an official Pip-Boy App which is available on Google Play Store and Apple App Store. You can’t play the game with the Pip-Boy app alone.

The Pip-Boy app shows you game stats, plays music and monitors inventory while you play the game on a PC or gaming rig.

What about the Fallout 4 mobile app found on Google?

Those apps you see on Google are fake and unhelpful click-baits loaded with ads:

If you click any of the links shown in the Google result page screenshot, you’ll be redirected to download one or more third-party apps. Or complete an offer.

Like this one:

Then you’re required to run these third-party apps for some time (usually 30 seconds). Before your device is verified, after which you can now download the game.

Spoiler alert: you never get verified!

If you finally download any Fallout 4.apk file, you’ll quickly find out what you downloaded is absolutely fake.

You can’t tell for sure what those unhelpful apps do on your device. They might be keyloggers or phishing apps aimed at stealing your private information.

I advise you delete them immediately.

Sadly, I too fell victim of those fraudulent apps while trying to install a Fallout 4 apk file on my Android smartphone.

In my case, after I downloaded and installed a Fallout 4 apk file, I was asked to download and install another app to unlock it.

It was a bottomless pit.

What is Fallout 4 about?

Fallout 4 is the fifth of the Fallout series produced by Bethesda Game Studios.

The story of Fallout 4 is crafted around Boston and Massachusetts.

The game is set in the year 2287. This is exactly 10 years following Fallout 3. And 210 years after a devastating nuclear war that rattled the United States.

Fallout 4 is about a character named “Sole-Survivor”. He survives a catastrophic nuclear strike after being frozen in a hi-tech underground bunker for hundreds of years.

But, the character has lost his family of two at that time. His wife is dead and he must search and rescue his kidnapped son.

Your role will be to help Sole Survivor find his son and avenge his wife.

How does Fallout 4 gameplay look like?

What you will enjoy with Fallout 4 is freedom. With the layered armor system, you can upgrade weapons and armor suits.

You are also free to roam or fast travel around the game’s world. You can start conversations, scavenge for supplies, and build a base.

The graphics of the game is superb and the soundtrack is pretty cool too.

On Android mobile, you get to enjoy exactly the same high-definition quality.

Wow! There’s even voice acting for the main character.
