Fallout Shelter is getting its biggest update yet. Starting today you can download Update 1.6 in the App Store and the Google Play store, and you can also download Shelter on your PC (link launches the download, so no clicky unless you want this).
In Update 1.6, you’ll have access to the brand new Quest system! Overseers can now take control of their Dwellers and travel to new locations like abandoned buildings and decrepit Vaults, or even familiar spots like Fallout 4’s Red Rocket Fuel Stop and Super Duper Mart. With this all-new Quest system, you can now assemble a group of Dwellers to take on challenges outside of the Vault, uncover legendary loot, and face off against new enemies like Radscorpions, Ghouls and powerful bosses as you traverse the Wasteland.
The new combat system grants you greater control over your Dwellers’ actions in a fight, allowing you to direct their attacks. Select the enemy you want your Dweller to attack and even play a quick mini-game for a critical hit. Expand your arsenal with melee weapons like swords and baseball bats for a more up-close-and-personal encounter.
If your Dwellers are taking too long to return to the Vault after a quest, you can call them back immediately with a nice, refreshing Nuka-Cola Quantum. And if you need some extra help getting your Vault going, you can purchase a starter pack, which includes a special Dweller and in-game resources.
Fallout Shelter on PC
More than 50 million people – more players than all the previous Fallout games combined – have downloaded the free app in the past year and experienced the challenges of running an underground vault in a post-nuclear wasteland. Since Fallout Shelter’s surprise launch last E3, Bethesda Game Studios has added new features like Pets; Crafting, Scrapping and Junk; additional rooms; Fallout 4 characters; and special Dweller customization options.
And now Bethesda Game Studios is bringing Fallout Shelter to a brand new audience (and a way bigger screen) on PC as a free download on Bethesda.net. Whether you’re a seasoned Overseer or just starting out, the PC version offers the full Fallout Shelter experience, complete with every update – including Update 1.6. The PC version is available now. Download the Bethesda.net Launcher here (link launches the download, so no clicky unless you want this) to get started.
