The highly anticipated Fallout 4 on PlayStation 4 will support Remote Play, Bethesda has announced. The feature will allow PlayStation Vita owners to experience the post-apocalyptic RPG sequel on Sony’s handheld via custom controls, much like with Bungie’s Destiny last year.
Naturally, the process requires a bit of tinkering around with Fallout 4’s controls, as the PS Vita lacks the same number of buttons as the DualShock 4 controller on PS4. However, thank to Josh Hamrick, Bethesda has managed to get Fallout 4 up and running on Sony’s portable games device, and it’s looking pretty impressive to say the least.

Fallout 4 is due out worldwide on PlayStation 4, PC, and Xbox One on November 10. The game takes place in Boston, U.S., some 200 years after a nuclear war devastated the country. As with Fallout 3, players will emerge from the confines of the Vault to a post-apocalyptic wasteland inhabited by feral creatures and other hazards. Fallout 4 utilizes the Creation Engine, which was previously responsible for powering The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim on last-generation consoles, though it has been modified for new hardware. In terms of performance, Bethesda has confirmed that the sequel will run at 1080p/30fps on both PS4 and Xbox One.
Unlike previous entries in the Fallout franchise, this latest title will include full voice acting for the player character, the ‘Sole Survivor,’ and feature branching dialogue paths similar to the Mass Effect series. The main character will be voiced by Brian T. Delaney and Courtenay Taylor for the male and female version of the Sole Survivor, respectively. Players will be joined in Fallout 4 by a canine companion named Dogmeat, and will also have the ability to build and deconstruct settlements and buildings throughout the game world. The game will also receive extensive post-launch support and has more lines of dialogue than Fallout 3 and Skyrim.
