Fallout Shelter for Android now available on the Play Store

After what seems like an age waiting with anticipation, Fallout Shelter has finally been released for Android. The popular title landed on the Play Store this morning and is available to download for free.

Fallout Shelter’s basic concept is to build yourself a subterranean paradise in a post-apocalyptic wasteland. When I say paradise, I mean a vault where your responsibility is to build, repopulate and defend your world from attacks. Not exactly as glamorous as The SIMs, but perhaps more enjoyable for that very reason. As per the Play Store description:

BUILD THE PERFECT VAULT Create a brighter future…underground! Select from a variety of modern-day rooms to turn an excavation beneath 2,000 feet of bedrock into the very picture of Vault Life.

OVERSEE A THRIVING COMMUNITY Get to know your Dwellers and lead them to happiness. Find their ideal jobs and watch them flourish. Provide them with outfits, weapons, and training to improve their abilities.

PROSPER A well-run Vault requires a variety of Dwellers with a mix of skills. Build a Radio Room to attract new Dwellers. Or, take an active role in their personal lives; play matchmaker and watch the sparks fly!

EXPLORE THE WASTELAND Send Dwellers above ground to explore the blasted surface left behind and seek adventure, handy survival loot, or unspeakable death. Find new armor and weapons, gain experience, and earn Caps. But don’t let them die!

PROTECT YOUR VAULT From time to time, idyllic Vault life may be disrupted by the dangers of post-nuclear life. Prepare your Dwellers to protect against threats from the outside…and within.

Vault-Tec has provided the tools, but the rest is up to you. What are you waiting for? Get started building your Vault today for FREE.

If you want to try it out, be sure you’re running at least Android 4.1 or later and then head on over to the Play Store. It’s free, and supported by in-app purchases ranging from $1-$20.

E3 2015: Bethesda’s new real life Android Pip Boy for Fallout 4, more

From 9to5Toys.com:

Last night, Bethesda held its very first E3 showcase. We got to see more of the highly anticipated Fallout 4, along with a new Fallout iOS title and details on the very cool F4 special edition. We caught a quick CG glimpse at Arkane’s next sequel to the stealth action title Dishonored and more details on the return of Doom.

Having, in many ways, already captured the game of show award before E3 even really kicked-off, Fallout 4 is one of the most highly anticipated games in recent memory. Game Director Todd Howard took to the stage to reveal more details about the game including its complete character customization suite (including female protagonists), a deep focus on dynamic item/shelter crafting and a November 10th release date!

But possibly even more exciting, and I can’t believe I’m about to say this, is the second screen mobile app for Fallout 4. Essentially just the new in-game Pip Boy running on your iPhone, the now available for pre-order Pip Boy Edition makes it so much more than that:

Pip Boy is real and it looks pretty cool. Bethesda is including a real sized Pip Boy that you can stick your iPhone in and run the companion app while playing. As Howard said during the press event, all of these special edition add-ons are a little gimmicky, but this happens to be one of the coolest gimmicks yet (barring that life size, talking Claptrap maybe). Both Best Buy and Amazon have the Pip Boy pre-order available, but they keep going in and out of stock.

You can check out the rest of Bethesda’s E3 announcements over on 9to5Toys.
