Post-apocalyptic ‘Fallout Shelter’ blasts onto Android in August – Mashable

Android device owners will soon get the joy of managing their own post-apocalyptic shelter and keeping its residents happy next month.

Bethesda Softworks announced the free-to-play Fallout Shelter will come to the Google Play Store Aug. 13, two months after it showed up iTunes. The game is set in the world of Fallout, which imagines what a post-bomb drop society would look like after a more technologically advanced Earth was turned to ash.

Bethesda unveiled Fallout Shelter during its E3 press conference as something the company wanted to in the Fallout universe, but strictly for mobile. The game is free to download, and players have the option of purchasing lunch boxes with extra content. The game has reportedly made $5 million in its first two weeks out the gate, and ranked highly on the iTunes charts.

There will also be new content that ties Fallout Shelter more closely to Fallout 4. Mr. Handy, a helpful robot butler seen in footage of the upcoming title, will appear in Fallout Shelter to assist players, whether that’s around their vault or by going into the surrounding wasteland to gather supplies.

The game is also set to get new enemies, including the terrifying Deathclaw, which will attack your vault. Molerats will also come to infest your vault from the inside.
