Fallout Shelter Receiving Large Update and PC Version

If your Dwellers are taking too long to return to the Vault after a quest, you can call them back immediately with a nice, refreshing Nuka-Cola Quantum. And if you need some extra help getting your Vault going, you can purchase a starter pack, which includes a special Dweller and in-game resources. 

Fallout Shelter is about to get its biggest update yet. In Update 1.6, Quests are coming to Fallout Shelter! Overseers will be able to take control of their Dwellers and travel to new locations like abandoned buildings and decrepit Vaults, or even familiar spots like Fallout 4’s Red Rocket Fuel Stop and Super Duper Mart. With this all-new Quest system, you can now assemble a group of Dwellers to take on challenges outside of the Vault, uncover legendary loot, and face off against new enemies like Radscorpions, Ghouls and powerful bosses as you traverse the Wasteland.

The new combat system will grant you greater control over your Dwellers’ actions in a fight, allowing you to direct their attacks. Select the enemy you want your Dweller to attack and even play a quick mini-game for a critical hit.

More than 50 million people – more players than all the previous Fallout games combined – have downloaded the free app in the past year and experienced the challenges of running an underground vault in a post-nuclear wasteland. Since Fallout Shelter’s surprise launch last E3, Bethesda Game Studios has added new features like Pets; Crafting, Scrapping and Junk; additional rooms; Fallout 4 characters; and special Dweller customization options.

nd now Bethesda Game Studios is bringing Fallout Shelter to a brand new audience (and a way bigger screen) on PC as a free download on Bethesda.net. Whether you’re a seasoned Overseer or just starting out, the PC version offers the full Fallout Shelter experience, complete with every update – including Update 1.6. We’ll have more details on the PC version soon.

Update 1.6 will be available for download next month.
