In a surprising turn of events tonight, Bethesda announced that their free-to-play shelter simulator Fallout Shelter will be releasing for PlayStation 4 and Nintendo Switch. Not only were console of the games announced, but Bethesda stunned the crowd by announcing that both versions of the game would be available starting tonight, and will cost players nothing.
For those unaware of the title, Fallout Shelter tasks players with building and managing their own Vault as an Overseer. You’ll have to guide and direct citizens of the Vault, keep them happy and healthy as they go to work, and can even allocate certain citizens to start families. For a quick breakdown of the game’s features, check out below:
● BUILD THE PERFECT VAULT
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.
Turn worthless junk into useful items with Crafting! Customize the look of any dweller in the Barbershop.
● 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.
