Fallout Shelter Android

Fallout Shelter launched on iOS devices at the start of E3 and lowered productivity for everyone on an Apple device. It’s been on iPad for so long, that plenty of people have played it to the point of losing interest. Meanwhile, the Android masses were feeling left out in the nuclear wasteland. No longer! Android users of all kinds can get in on Fallout Shelter soon.

Todd Howard has revealed that Fallout Shelter will be coming to Android devices on 13 August. But the version coming to Android will be an improved and expanded game – the update will also be coming to iOS, giving players a reason to open up their vaults again.

Whether you’re playing on Android or on iOS, Fallout Shelter will feature new game updates, including Mr. Handy as an all new premium reward. 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.

I know some people have already reached maximum capacity in their vaults, playing the game to “completion” as much as possible. Still, it’s obviously a fun title and has already made Bethesda a ton of money without making us all cry about micro transactions. With the inclusion of Android gamers, even more people can get in on the joys of hilarious pick up lines when residents flirt, as well as the evil excitement of sending a dweller into the wastelands to look for resources. Global lack of productivity coming 13 August.

      What is this “increase”? Is this when all of your expense go up and you have even less money?

          And it’s not my salary 🙁 Good news though, my studio manager quit so now I do most of her work as well as my job, and the two jobs that they assume I have time for on the side!

            To be fair, I am earning the industry average for my position. Now if only I were being paid for the other three positions…

            The sad thing is, when you spread someone over so many jobs, their ACTUAL job suffers. But try tell a pointy-haired boss that.

            I was hired as a designer. Somewhere along the line I was made unofficial IT guy. Then they decided that my qualifications as a designer made me eligible to build a CRM. My favourite phrase: “But why don’t you have time?”

            In my experience the worst thing you can ever do at a company is prove that you’re capable of doing more than just your job. Because then everyone else’s shit becomes yours, and you don’t get rewarded for it.

            My God and here I thought I was the only one getting anally raped like this by the bosses. Start of as a Designer, something breaks on a PC and you fix it…. Now you do IT too… Debit Clerk goes on holiday, you have to learn to do it…. Becomes unofficial Debit Clerk too.

      Well, I did watch some Star Trek last night. And Seven of Nine and that skin tight bodice of her were featured quite a bit and… Fine! I know. Not the increase you were referring to.

          Difference is, if it’s planned for more than one platform, but one gets preference over the other. Same happened with Batman Arkham Knight. Rather don’t do it if you’re going to be half-assed about it.

            that s also true, just speaking to my colleague about it, PVzombies 2 came out for IOS 1st and it rocked, no issues, then got released later for android and the guys were not impressed, did not play, issues loading…..

            I don’t mind exclusives too much. If it’s not out on pc, or android in this came, it’s fine. It’s not going to break my heart, but don’t give us a broken game.

        Platform biased? Have I missed something? I dunno. If “platform bias” gives me awesome ports like GTA V on PC, then Rockstar can be as platform biased as they want to be!

          GTA V came out on pc longer than a YEAR after the console release and then they still tried to sell it at the price of a new game. I’ll get it on sale, thanks.

            I paid full price for GTA V on PC and quite frankly, it was one of the best buys I’ve ever done. I cannot stress Value for Money enough.
            Come on. Would you rather play an average port of a game the same week it launches on console, or would you rather wait a year and play a game so awesome you’ll rant and rave about it years after release.
            Rockstar clearly loved GTA so much they would rather have waited a year or so and do the job themselves, thus pouring the obvious love they had for that game into its production.
            Instant gratification isn’t always gratifying you know?

            July 27, 2015 at 09:07

            I’d just rather have a company that doesn’t beat around the bush like Rockstar did. When the console release came around they kept making excuses about the pc versions and never gave anyone a clear indication of their plans. They kept pushing out the release dates too. I’ll never respect them the same again after that.
            Whether it’s a good game I have no doubt. But I’ve waited nearly two years, I can certainly wait some more.
