Fallout Shelter is a game that was a spin-off for the mobile from the original Fallout PC games by Bethesda. The game has been launched since June 2015 and later announced their collaboration with Shanda Games to create Fallout Shelter Online for the mobile. Of course, licensed by Bethesda Softworks, the game seems to be another spin-off but out of Fallout Shelter.
Check out the beta test gameplay by HorseCheng below:
The game features gameplay from the original Fallout Shelter game where you populate your community, build facilities and expand your vault. However, this time you will be able to explore the map in Fallout and there are tons of quests to do as well.
Below are the features of the game:
Build, populate and explore
You will still be building and taking care of your Vault.
And you can still equip your dwellers with equipment to help them fend off thugs and most importantly, Deathclaws.
You will still be able to recruit Dwellers. Just like in Fallout Shelter, they all have stats but this time they have a rank system. The highest ranking from SSR to R and you can also collect the character shards to upgrade them.
Explore the map and do quests!
When you open up the map, there are many locations that you can explore. Once you tap in, you will arrive in the town where you can purchase items there or accept quests.
Each location will have a different environment as you explore, complete quests there and earn loot. It’s sort of like a dungeon exploration where you will also face the boss at the end of the stage.
As the game is built to be an RPG for mobile, you will need to create a team of 5 for your exploration. Each of the characters will have their own skills which you will need to activate them manually when their power gauge is full. The characters will attack automatically so there’s no worries about that.
Some explorations will require you to tap around the block spaces to move around and explore. While some explorations are stage based where you need to clear a number of waves (like 1/5 to 5/5) to complete it.
The limited beta test had recently ended from 31st July to 6th August. So we’ll have to wait for the next test or even the official launch if the game is ready. Though the game is only released exclusively for China, Bethesda just might launch it globally if we make our voices heard. Interested? Go and let Bethesda Softworks know! 😀
