Bethesda Announces Fallout Shelter Mobile Game

Bethesda has announced Fallout Shelter, a brand new mobile game inspired by the likes of XCOM, SimCity, and FTL. Players take control of a Vault Overseer tasked with creating and maintaining his or her own vault. You can bring people into your vault and build rooms such as bars and classrooms to increase their stats, then send them out into the wasteland to gather resources. Disasters such as fires, radroach infestations, and raider attacks can happen at any time.

The game will be completely free, and there are no annoying stamina mechanics to gate your play time. Players will, however, be able to buy lunch boxes filled with random loot.

The game will be coming out on both iPhones and Android devices. Bethesda has also announced that the Fallout Shelter app will be released on the app store tonight.
