Fallout Shelter is coming to PS4 and the Nintendo Switch very soon. Tonight to be exact. Announced this evening at the Bethesda E3 Conference, the game will now be available for both systems tonight. This was hypothesized after a trophy list for PS4 leaked yesterday.
For those of you who have never played before, here is a quick summary:
Fallout Shelter puts you in control of a state-of-the-art underground Vault from Vault-Tec. Build the perfect Vault, keep your Dwellers happy, and protect them from the dangers of the Wasteland. … Build the perfect Vault, keep your Dwellers happy, and protect them from the dangers of the Wasteland.
In Fallout Shelter, players build and manage their own Vault as an Overseer – the leader and coordinator of their Vault. Players guide and direct the citizens of the Vault, and need to keep them happy through meeting their needs such as power, food, and water. They rescue dwellers from the wasteland and assign them to different resource-generating buildings in the Vault, using the SPECIAL statistics system from the other Fallout games. Each character's SPECIAL profile affects their ability to generate different resources, and their statistics can be increased by training them in rooms devoted to each stat. The dwellers can level up over time, increasing their health, and can be given new items and weapons to help with various tasks. The number of dwellers can be increased by waiting for new dwellers from the wasteland to arrive or by pairing a male and a female dweller in living quarters to produce babies.
The game, as always, will be free. So grab your Switch Nintendo gamers! You can get the game tonight on both PS4 and Nintendo Switch.
