Instead of playing Fallout Shelter on PC via Android emulator, you can now get the official version for PC! The Fallout Shelter PC version and the big mobile update were announced earlier this year, at E3, during the publisher's briefing.
So, Fallout Shelter has finally arrived on PC. All you need is Bethesda.Net Launcher. From there, you need to create a Bethesda.net account (if you don't have one already). Once you logged in, two programs are available from the top left of the launcher; the Fallout 4 Creation Kit, and, just below it -- Fallout Shelter. Don't mind my screenshot, showing three programs.
Fallout Shelter Minimum PC System RequirementsCPU: Intel Core 2 Quad CPU Q9550 @2.83GHz
GPU: NVIDIA GeForce GTS 250 1GHz / RADEON HD 6970 1GHz
RAM: 2 GB
HDD: 2 GB
OS: Win 7 64-bit
Although, the minimum PC specs are as provided above, Fallout Shelter PC version works just fine on some older dual core PCs (I.e. AMD E-300 dual-core @ 1.3 GHz). If you have an old Win 7 64-bit PC, be sure to give Fallout Shelter a try. As our Facebook page fan, Kenny Eisenhower would say -- No lag whatsoever. Thanks for this useful information Kenny, I'm sure many will appreciate it.
Fallout Shelter PC version is a free game that also offers microtransactions.
