Fallout Shelter Arrives for Windows PC! Get All the Details Right Here!

by on July 14, 2016

Today, Bethesda Softworks officially launched the biggest update ever created for the mobile Fallout spin-off, Fallout Shelter. Update 1.6 is available for the mobile title now, and you can check out a new reveal trailer below.

Update 1.6 introduces a new Quest System for the game along with a new combat mechanic. There are also two new items for Overseers: the Starter Pack that allows players to jump-start a new vault; and new Nuka-Cola Quantum speeds up Dwellers returning from the Wasteland and certain Vault Tasks.

On top of that, gamers can now play Fallout Shelter on their computers. The game is now available to download and play for free via Bethesda.net. The PC version is the full Fallout Shelter gameplay experience. It features all the updates that have been added over the last year, including Pets, Crafting, Scrapping and Junk, additional rooms, Fallout 4 characters, and the Dweller customization options. All the new content from 1.6 has also been added.

With the success of Fallout Shelter for mobile smartphones, bringing it to PC seems like a brilliant move. If the micro-transactions are also enabled for the PC version, it also gives Bethesda another smart way to make money off the game. Update 1.6 can be downloaded for Fallout Shelter by visiting the App Store or the Google Play Store.

    This is very cool. I never thought that touch screen controls were the perfect type for this game anyway and the recent update has made it impossible for my phone to play the game so I'm glad I can at least now enjoy it on a laptop.

    This is cool. I never realized that a PC version of this is coming out. I never really tried out the original mobile version, so I'll have to give this one a shot sometime soon.

    I may pick it up again if it comes on PC, I got bored of the mobile version after a while but maybe they've added new stuff. DeeDee is right, the touch controls didn't seem intuitive enough and the game was much better when I played it with the MoGa controller.
