Biggest Fallout Shelter Update Ever - Update 1.6

By John Gaudiosi ( - Mon, Aug 8, 2016

Bethesda Softworks has released Fallout Shelter Update 1.6, its biggest update yet for the hit free-to-play mobile simulation game. Over 50 million players have stepped into the role of Overseer to build their own Vault, manage dwellers, and adventure through Fallout’s iconic wasteland.

Bethesda Game Studios introduces a new Quest system with a new combat mechanic, as well as two new items for Overseers. The Starter Pack allows players to jump-start a new Vault, while Nuka-Cola Quantum speeds up Dwellers returning from the Wasteland and certain Vault tasks.

What Does the Fallout Shelter Update Offer?

Across more than 5 billion simulation game sessions, Overseers have sent more than 715 million Dwellers into the Wasteland to explore, battle enemies, gather resources and items, and discover new recipes for crafting weapons and armor. In Update 1.6, players now have more substantive Quests to conquer and can take control of their Dwellers while they travel to abandoned buildings and decrepit Vaults, as well as locations familiar to Fallout 4 fans like the Red Rocket Fuel Stop and the Super Duper Mart. Players can assemble a group of Dwellers to take on challenges outside of the Vault, uncover legendary loot, and face off against new enemies like Radscorpions, Ghouls and powerful bosses.

While in the new Quests, Overseers can use the new combat system to gain control over Dwellers in a fight, allowing players to select opponents and direct attacks and even play a quick mini-game for a critical hit. Impatient Overseers who would like to instantly return Dwellers after a quest or complete Barbershop customizations or crafting, can now use a refreshing Nuka-Cola Quantum in the new Fallout Shelter updates.

Fallout Shelter Is Now Available on PC

In addition, Fallout Shelter is now available on PC for free via the launcher.

The PC version of the simulation game offers the full Fallout Shelter experience that fans have come to love on mobile, complete with all of the updates added over the last year – Pets, Crafting, Scrapping and Junk, additional rooms, Fallout 4 characters, and special Dweller customization options – as well as all of the new content in Update 1.6.

If you don’t already own one, pick up an NVIDIA SHIELD Android TV today and start playing Fallout Shelter Update 1.6.
