Bethesda took last years E3 by storm when they announced the release of Fallout 4 and the free, ready to play mobile game, Fallout Shelter. In Fallout Shelter, you are given the opportunity the run your own vault. As the Overseer, you assign jobs to your dwellers to maintain your resources, protect the vault, or to leave the vault to find resources. In the 1.6 update, you are allowed to actually leave the vault and traverse the wastelands.
Not only can you assign your dwellers to leave the vault for resources; you can assist them on quests. The quest system is new to this mobile Fallout, and you can now take control of new areas. You can equip your characters with pets, armor, weapons, and more to defend themselves and and their new colonies. Along with the quests system, a new battle system has been added. There is strategy involved, and you can assign certain dwellers to attack certain enemies. Bethesda added a mini game in the fight sequence to acquire critical hits.
Mobile users aren’t the only consumers that can enjoy this new update because Bethesda has also released the game for free on their website! (As long as you’re ok with downloading Bethesda.net Launcher). This isn’t the only thing Fallout fans have to look forward to this summer. There is another Vault-tec Workshop add-on scheduled to release July 26th. Last but not least, the DLC I am most excited for, Nuka World is scheduled to release sometime in August.
These new features and DLC are sure to give any dedicated Fallout fan Uranium fever. So grab a Nuka-Cola and enjoy the awesomeness that is Fallout Shelter.
