After releasing Fallout Shelter on the iOS platform during their E3 2015 press conference, Bethesda Softworks have answered the question asked by some: “Where is the Android release?”. The company have confirmed that the smartphone / tablet game will be available for free via the Google Play store starting August 13 2015.
Both the iOS and Android version of Fallout Shelter will be receiving a brand new update to mark the launch. This latest update in particular is set to introduce Mr. Handy – the ultimate robotic companion – as a premium reward. Mr. Handy can be used to collect resources inside your Vault, be sent into the wasteland to collect loot, or defend your Vault from creatures and disasters, including new threats like Deathclaw invasions and Molerat infestations.
Fallout Shelter is a post-nuclear strategy and simulation experience that puts you in control of a state-of-the-art underground Vault. Build the perfect Vault from a variety of rooms, oversee your very own thriving community of Vault Dwellers, and protect them from the dangers of the Wasteland. Vault-Tec has provided the tools, but the rest is up to you.
