By Alex Cruz

"Fallout 4," along with the Pip-Boy App, will be released next month, and Bethesda revealed some important information to prepare the gamers for the big launch.

"Fallout 4" will not only be released in PS4 and Xbox One. It will also hit the PCs, and Bethesda provided the minimum and recommended system requirements on a blog post.

Windows 7, 8 or 10 64-bit operating systems, Internet connection and Steam accounts to activate are required. Minimum requirements were described by Digital Trends as "quite tame."

An Intel Core i5-2300 2.8 GHz/AMD Phenom II X4 945 3.0 GHz processor or equivalent will do, but to for optimum "Fallout 4" performance, Bethesda is recommending an Intel Core i7 4790 3.6 GHz/AMD FX-9590 4.7 GHz or equivalent.

Minimum requirement for graphics card is NVIDIA GTX 550 Ti 2GB/AMD Radeon HD 7870 2GB or equivalent, while the recommended is NVIDIA GTX 780 3GB/AMD Radeon R9 290X 4GB or equivalent. The computer will also need to have an 8 GB RAM, and a 30 GB free HDD space.

Bethesda also wanted to make sure that gamers are aware of the console storage space. "Fallout 4" reportedly requires 28-35 GB depending on the territory and language supported.

Meanwhile, the Pip-Boy App can be very useful when paired with "Fallout 4" on Xbox One, PS4 and PC. Fortunately, the App is supported on iOS, Windows Phone devices and Android.

Bethesda would like to add that Pip-Boy included will have foam inserts fitting Apple's iPhone 6 and 6S; iPhone 5 and 5S; iPhone 4 and 4S; Samsung Galaxy S5, S4 and S3. Other popular smartphone devices can also fit using the customizable foam insert.

Smartphones that are larger than the listed models may not fit in the wearable device, but it can still use the Pip-Boy App.

The game will become available, digitally, on Nov. 10 at 12:01 a.m. local time, in all territories — the unlock time in North America will be at 12:01 a.m. EST. In Asia, "Fallout 4" will be available on Nov. 11 at 12 a.m. and Dec. 17 at 12 a.m. in Japan, according to what Kotaku has learned.
