If anticipation for Fallout 4 has you so giddy that only a spiral-eyed Vault Boy emoji (or a glowing green radioactive smiling turd emoji) can properly encapsulate your current emotional state, publisher Bethesda Softworks has a solution: the new Fallout CHAT app for Android and iOS.
Fallout CHAT — that stands for Communication Hub And Transmitter — is a new custom keyboard option that lets fans of Bethesda's post-nuclear franchise speak in Fallout-themed emoji and animated GIFs. More than 60 Fallout emojis, including Dogmeat, the Pip-Boy and a two-headed bovine, can be sent to friends via text message. Or you can send animations like "Please Stand By" or a cannibalistic Vault Boy chowing down on a leg if you want to communicate with moving pictures.
Fallout 4 launches next week, Nov. 10, on PlayStation 4, Windows PC and Xbox One.
