Fallout Shelter Lets You Build Your Own Vault
The free-to-play offline game from Bethesda is impressive and full-featured!
It wasn't enough to blow audiences around the world away with Fallout 4 and its multitude of features. Bethesda went one step further and offered a free-to-play app that would be made available right after the company's E3 showcase. It's called Fallout Shelter, and it's everything a Fallout 4 companion app should be.
Except technically it's not a companion app (that's saved for the collector's edition Pip-Boy available for preorder). It's more like a town/community-building game in the vein of Tiny Tower or Tiny Death Star that places you in the shoes of a newly-minted Overseer. You'll build all of the rooms and facilities that your tiny vault dwellers need, including living quarters, a diner area, and shelters for them to, well, couple.
It's completely free to play, even though there are several transactions you can make in-game to get extra money with which you can outfit your vault dwellers to go out and explore. It's a colorful, busy endeavor that's probably going to be able to tide you over until the actual release of Fallout 4. Look for a complete review coming soon on Modojo!
