Get Fallout Shelter on PC Today!



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 Requirements

CPU: 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.

*UPDATE: you can use your save from Android version of Fallout Shelter. Copy the .sav file from Internal Storage/Android/com.bethsoft.falloutshelter/file/ to My Document/My Games/Fallout Shelter. Thanks to Ananda Krishna, our Facebook page fan for sharing this useful information.

How To Survive A Real-Life Nuclear Fallout


The Fallout series takes place in a world decades after the nuclear war has destroyed most of the civilization. Only those who hid in fallout shelters (aka Vaults) survived. But could you actually live like this for any prolonged period of time? There’s a lot to think about.

First, you’re going to need underground shelter to protect yourself from the damaging particles of ionizing radiation. Prolonged exposure to this nasty stuff can cause serious illness, and eventually death.

If you figure that out, you’ve then got to start to thinking about how you're going to get food and drink down here, needing to be 61 meters (200 feet) beneath the surface for safety.

Let's Talk About Fallout Shelter



Oh hello there. Sorry if I seem a bit distracted. I'm just.... OH WAIT, THERE'S A FIRE IN MY PURIFIER AGAIN! So sorry about this. I've just been playing Fallout Shelter. A lot. Like, a dangerous amount of time. I'm pretty sure I haven't left the house in at least a week. Or was that a month? Yes, ladies and gentlemen, Fallout Shelter is the Fallout game nobody knew they wanted until it was actually made and handed to us on day one of E3 by the mighty Todd Howard. Let's talk about it!



Fallout Shelter is not like any other Fallout game.


Rather it is a simple management simulator. Instead of the usual exploration, combat, and interactions with a fabulous and imaginative post apocalypse, Fallout Shelter takes place in a single place: One of the Vaults. Sounds boring, doesn't it? The hook is that the Vault is actually YOUR Vault. Yes, my friends, Fallout Shelter thrusts players into the role of Overseer of an entire Vault. You are given (almost) free reign in construction, placement, and acceptance of Dwellers into your Vault, giving them jobs and even sending them out into the Wasteland. Accomplishing certain tasks will grant you currency with which you may expand the Vault further and further underground and upgrade your facilities. But this game is inherently deceptive; It looks like a little innocent mobile game, but in reality this thing is pure evil. And I'm not just talking about its ability to consume entire hours of your time.


For starters, you can't do anything you want, truly. The Vault needs to follow a certain layout or it's doomed to fail. Within this layout, you need to make sure there are rooms for gather the three core resources of water, energy, and food. Get too little electricity and other rooms lose power, becoming useless. Lose food, and your dwellers start to starve to death. Running out of water is easily the worst of them, as your Dwellers are forced to drink irradiated slop, and I don't think I should have to tell why that's bad. So you need to strike a balance between these three things, managing your population and allocating individuals with the right SPECIAL stats to the right stations to maximize efficiency. But then there's also the danger of Raiders, so you're going to need weapons. The only reliable way to get weapons is to send people out into the Wasteland, but without weapons in the first place there's a really good chance they'll die. Good SPECIAL stats help in this regard, but until you can build training rooms, the chances you'll get a real good Dweller are entirely on the Lunchboxes.

The Lunchboxes are the game's form of premium currency. While you can earn Lunchboxes occasionally by completing challenges, Lunchboxes can be purchased with real money. And the rewards you get from Lunchboxes are utterly tantalizing. First Lunchbox I ever opened had A STAR PALADIN CROSS AND A FAT MAN. I'm not saying the game is Pay2Win, and there's not like something you can pay for to increase your chances of success in finding stuff or reduce the time it takes for dwellers to complete tasks, but the temptation is still there, regardless. I for one have avoided the temptation so far, but who knows for how long? I might just go for it now that my Vault has been wiped out for the third damn time.


And that's what it really comes down too. This game is deceptively brutal. The Vault will randomly run into issues; If you're lucky, it will be an easily manageable low damage fire. Strangely, a fire is absolutely nothing compared to RADROACHES. Yes, radroaches. The weakest enemy in Fallout's history, and still technically the weakest here, are absolute bastards who will tear apart your young inexperienced Dwellers like they were Cazadores. At first it's not so bad, but the infestations scale with your population and room numbers, so if you're particularly unlucky, the Radroaches will strike in a room that has nobody with guns in it and you'll need to quickly and carefully shift everybody around to deal with the problem. Because if you don't contain the Radroaches to one room, they start to multiply exponentially in ALL YOUR OTHER ROOMS. I lost a Vault this way. TO RADROACHES. My next Vault got utterly wiped out by a glitch. all the Molerats but one got killed... And it just wouldn't die. So it kept multiplying. It is actually because of that damn Molerat that I am free from Fallout Shelter long enough to write this damn review.

In conclusion, I believe Fallout Shelter is an excellent Fallout flavored waiting tool for Fallout 4. However, I also maintain that it is not for people that don't like being leashed to the damn thing. Fallout Shelter is effectively Fallout Tamagotchis (Does anyone remember Tamagotchis?); You become obsessed, hard-wired, to constantly inspect and maintain the Vault, even when there's nothing at all to do. Play at your own risk, people. Now if you'll excuse me, I think I'll go for a walk... With my phone.

Play Fallout Shelter on Your PC and MAC



How?! Simple. Very simple actually. With emulator. Why?! Well, if you're one of the unlucky ones that are unable to play Fallout Shelter because of various reasons, such are; Windows phone, iOS and / or Android device that doesn't fit the minimum app requirements, to save phone battery, or you simply want to play on your 4k big screen.

Since you don't want to mess with just any emulator that "emulates" the Android platform on your PC, there is this one that I highly recommend...



BlueStacks


Of course, the answer to all your problems is the #1 Android Emulator - BlueStacks. BlueStacks is the Android Platform Emulator, which means that it kind of emulate the Android OS, but only for the gaming (app) part. And yes, you can download and play the most mobile apps and games that exist at the Google Play Store.

How-to


As I mentioned above, it's very simple; firstly - download and install BlueStacks Android Emulator, then create a Google account if you don't have one already. Use your Google account with Google Play Store in BlueStacks, and you're all set to download the one and only - Fallout Shelter!

Fallout Shelter is Coming to Android on August 13th!



You all know by now that Fallout Shelter is making millions for Bethesda; more money than Candy Crush Saga, and that is #1 App on the App Store. For those who don't know what Fallout Shelter is (which I highly doubt, but still); Fallout Shelter is an App for iPhone and iPad (requires at least an iPhone 5, iPad 3, or iPad mini 2), created by Bethesda Softworks LLC, and it's free-to-download. In Fallout Shelter, you build your perfect Vault, which include a base-building and people managing strategies.


The first thing that most of us realized while watching the #BE3 Showcase is that the game is released for iOS only. I knew that the game is going to be released for Android eventually, and now, it is official - Fallout Shelter is coming to Android!

It seems that Bethesda finally decided not to keep every information classified anymore, so they hinted over their Twitter - Yes, we're also working on Fallout Shelter for Android. Hopefully out in a few months. Thank you for that dear Bethesda, as for Fallout 4!


I understand that the Apple only launch could have been due to the company wanting to keep this game a secret until the big announcement at E3, I just thought they had everything ready to release the Android App some time sooner than a "few months" period after the E3, but, oh well... Bethesda will no doubt be delighted by Fallout Shelter's financial success on iOS, and who knows what we will see in the future of "Mobile Fallout".

I would highly recommend you to follow the devs if you wish to get nothing but first-hand, fresh news about your favorite games. Links are below, as is the Fallout Shelter #BE3 Showcase video. Be sure to check it if you haven't already and enjoy my dear Fallout fans!

Follow Bethesda on Google+, Facebook, Twitter, and also YouTube and Twitch channels.


UPDATE:
Earlier today at QuakeCon, Todd Howard revealed to an enthusiastic crowd that Fallout Shelter will be available for FREE on Google Play for Android devices on August 13th!

Whether you’re playing on Android or on iOS, Fallout Shelter will feature new game updates, including Mr. Handy as an all new premium reward. Have him collect resources inside your Vault, send him into the wasteland to collect loot, and defend your Vault from creatures and disasters, including all new Deathclaw invasions and Molerat infestations.
