Fallout Shelter Rolls Out On PC This Week Alongside New Update


Bethesda’s popular free-to-play Vault simulator game Fallout Shelter comes to PC later this week, the studio has announced. A post published yesterday on the developer’s Twitter account reads: “4 Days Until…you can exchange blows and combat new foes in #FalloutShelter’s biggest update,” followed by the image below.

Depending on time zones then, you can expect to see the post-apocalyptic spin-off appear on PC starting July 13 or 14, alongside what Bethesda’s calling the game’s “biggest update,” otherwise known as patch 1.6.

When the bumper amount of content drops, players will have access to a brand new combat system and whole new locations, as well as new enemies and characters to populate them. We wish we could give you more specifics on all the sparkly new stuff, but we’re still awaiting the inevitable trailer that will no doubt emerge within the next day or two.

Update 1.6 will be available on all platforms when it goes live later this week, including for the already available iOS and Android versions.

In other news, Fallout Shelter is facing its stiffest competition yet in the mobile market, as Niantic’s Pokemon GO has shot straight to the top of the download charts on iTunes, less than a week after release.
