Bethesda rolled out Fallout Shelter for iOS in 2015, and the game is now making its way to the Xbox One and Windows 10. The game is a free to play title, and comes with in-app purchases in the form of microtransactions for items used in the game. The game itself made its way to the PC last June, but this time around, it is being positioned as an Xbox Play Anywhere title, which allows you to carry your progress over from the Xbox One to Windows 10 and vice versa.
Fallout Shelter is also fully compatible with the Xbox One controller. The game is based on the Fallout RPG franchise, and sees you building and managing an underground vault while tending to the community within. If you’re not familiar with the base-building game, here’s a quick brief from the game’s listing:
BUILD THE PERFECT VAULT
Create a brighter future…underground! Select from a variety of modern-day rooms to turn an excavation beneath 2,000 feet of bedrock into the very picture of Vault Life.
OVERSEE A THRIVING COMMUNITY
Get to know your Dwellers and lead them to happiness. Find their ideal jobs and watch them flourish. Provide them with outfits, weapons, and training to improve their abilities.
Turn worthless junk into useful items with Crafting! Customize the look of any dweller in the Barbershop.
A well-run Vault requires a variety of Dwellers with a mix of skills. Build a Radio Room to attract new Dwellers. Or, take an active role in their personal lives; play matchmaker and watch the sparks fly!
EXPLORE THE WASTELAND
Send Dwellers above ground to explore the blasted surface left behind and seek adventure, handy survival loot, or unspeakable death. Find new armor and weapons, gain experience, and earn Caps. But don’t let them die!
PROTECT YOUR VAULT
From time to time, idyllic Vault life may be disrupted by the dangers of post-nuclear life. Prepare your Dwellers to protect against threats from the outside…and within.
