Fallout Shelter comes to Android via Google’s Play Store following its debut and immediate success on Apple’s App Store for iOS.

Fallout Shelter is the first mobile game from Bethesda Softworks and it has had incredible success since launching for iOS during E3 in June. In fact, the game has received many accolades from industry leading news outlets, ranging from Touch Arcade’s Game of the Week to IGN’s Best Mobile Game.

Fallout Shelter is a post-nuclear game set in the 1950s. It is first and foremost a strategy and simulation game that sets the player up as a Vault Overseer in which they have to build and maintain a working ‘fallout shelter’ known as a Vault. Players have the choice between a variety of rooms, all of which produce resources, and the ability to enable Dwellers to live in their respective Vault. Players can therefore oversee their very own, thriving community of Vault Dwellers and protect them from the dangers of the Wasteland, like Raiders and Radroach infestations.

Along with the launch on the Google Play Store, new updates have also hit the iOS version of the game. Players now have access to their very own Mr. Handy robot, a companion that the player is able to use to collect resources inside their Vault, as a Wasteland explorer, or as a defender for their Vault. The update also includes new Deathclaw invasions and Molerat infestations, which along with the current Raider invasions and Radroach infestations, adds a lot more for the player to worry about.

The game is available now for free on the Google Play Store for Android users, as well as Apple’s App Store for iOS users.
