Tonight, during Bethesda’s E3 press conference, Fallout 4 creative director Todd Howard announced an additional Fallout game. Titled Fallout Shelter, the game is a micromanaging game in the vein of Tiny Tower, The Sims, or Dungeon Keeper. Players will be tasked in managing their own vault shelter, as well as its inhabitants. The game has been developed for iOS and Android, and will release following the Bethesda conference.
Although the game is a mobile title, Howard has promised that the game will be completely free-to-play. There will be no cool-down-timers, and no gems. Of course, there will be an opportunity to purchase additional “lunchboxes,” filled with various loot, but everything can be earned without spending a penny. To top it all off, the game will be free to purchase from the App Store or Google Play Store.
Announced in-between trailers for Fallout 4, the app is apparently a full-fledged mobile game, with more complexity than most mobile games while staying true to the touch-screen controls of the mobile platform.
