In a surprise announcement, Bethesda revealed a new free mobile game: Fallout Shelter. This is a game that allows you to create your own Vault and act as the Overseer.
Some of the games that inspired this are X-COM, Simcity, FTL, among others.
Each vault dweller has their own individual stats.
Every dweller can level up their stats as well.
You can customize their clothing and weapons, which they will need when they go out into the wasteland to obtain loot.
You will have a variety of rooms to build so that you can maintain both your vault and it's dwellers.
Be prepared for anything; from fires, to rad roach attacks, and even raiders attacking. You can't get lazy.
As the overseer, you get to choose the name of their offspring, so choose wisely... or don't. Why
should I care?
Perhaps most importantly, the game is completely free. There are no pay wall timers, you won't need an internet connection, and when you build things it is instant. The only way money leaves your pocket is if you want to buy lunchboxes that have random loot in them.
Though the press conference only mentioned it would be on iOS, they made no mention of an android version. After the conference Pete Hines, the VP of Bethesda Softworks, confirmed via twitter that it is a timed exclusive.
May need to give iTunes a little time for it to update. It'll be up there. We will have info later about Android version.— Pete Hines (@DCDeacon) June 15, 2015
