Great news for Android users who have been desperately waiting for the chance to play Fallout Shelter on their mobile device: it’s officially available in the Google Play store! It had already been released for the iPhone and iPad on June 14, 2015, but it’s now available to download on Android devices as well. The game itself is free and makes use of in-app purchases. You can get it from Google Play right here.
In addition to this, all version of Fallout Shelter will receive new updates shortly, including servant bot Mr. Handy as a premium reward. Bethesda teased the following about the premium reward on its official blog:
“Have him collect resources inside your Vault, send him into the wasteland to collect loot, and defend your Vault from creatures and disasters, including all new Deathclaw invasions and Molerat infestations.”
In Fallout Shelter, players build and manage their own Vault as an overseer. Players control the people in the Vault and need to keep them happy. They rescue dwellers from the wasteland and assign them to different resource-generating buildings in the Vault, using the seven statistics from the SPECIAL set of stats from the other Fallout games: Strength, Perception, Endurance, Charisma, Intelligence, Agility and Luck. Each character’s SPECIAL affects their skill at generating different forms of resources. The statistics of a dweller can be increased via training.
