Fallout Shelter Now Available On Android Devices


Mobile gaming’s second-class gaming citizens, Android users, are finally getting their day in the sun with Fallout Shelter. Previously announced by Bethesda during their inaugural E3 media showcase conference, it was available for iOS devices roughly two months ago on the Apple App Store. Today, Bethesda has announced in a press release that Fallout Shelter is now available on the Google Play Store, available for Android devices running version 4.1 and up.

This version of Fallout Shelter comes with the newest updates, including a new Mr. Handy robotic companion. Not only does he help with resource collection within your vault and collecting bottlecaps in the wasteland, but he’ll also help protect your shelter from the newly-added Deathclaw invasions and Molerat infestations.

Bethesda Softworks are hoping that their success on the App Store will translate over to Android users, as the game has surpassed Candy Crush as the App Store’s number three top-grossing app in the United States. It’s also the top downloaded game in 48 countries, while being the top downloaded app of any kind in 25 countries. Perhaps releasing Fallout Shelter on Android at the same time as the iOS version would have guaranteed it, now with the holiday games season approaching. Although, releasing two months later on the other platform does give Bethesda’s mobile debut a second wind.

Nevertheless, it’s all to tide us over until Fallout 4 is released for the PC, PS4 and Xbox One on November 10.
