Fallout Shelter

Bethesda has revealed the next content update for Fallout Shelter on iOS and Android, which is set to launch later this week. The version 1.4 update will introduce a new crafting system to the game, allowing players to create armor and weapons for their Dwellers.

The 1.4 update will include two new rooms for weapon and armor crafting, and will allow users to collect ‘junk’ items to use as crafting materials. Players will be able to collect junk by sending explorers into the Wasteland, or by opening lunchboxes (each will contain a junk card).

In addition, this update will introduce new weapons and armor from the Fallout 4 video game, which players will be able to craft or find in lunchboxes.

Elsewhere, a new Barbershop room will allow users to customize the appearance of their Dwellers, and players will be able to collect a third type of pet for their Vault: parrots. Additional dogs and cats will also be introduced in this update, along with new pet bonuses.

Finally, the update will introduce a realistic day and night cycle to the game.

Fallout Shelter is available to download for free on the iTunes App Store and Google Play. The game takes place in the popular Fallout universe, and sees players construct an underground Vault to protect survivors from the Wasteland.

Fallout Shelter launched on iOS in June 2015, and over 85 million Vaults were created in the game’s first month. The game released on Android in August 2015.
