Vault-Tec delivers first update to Fallout Shelter

IMG_0046

Vault-Tec engineers are hard at work improving your experience with Fallout Shelter! Keep the feedback coming!

  • Overseers are encouraged to record any bizarre dweller behavior with the new Photo Feature. Sharing with those outside your Vault is optional, and will not result in your replacement or termination.
  • Vault air filters have been causing some mothers to not deliver babies and we understand this is causing long term discomfort. We have solved this (not the discomfort, the baby coming out part).
  • We’ve also done general maintenance to improve sudden Vault shut down and removed some other pesky issues with the capacitors inside various aspects of the simulation.

Thanks again, and keep up the great work – even if everyone is starving. It’s worse outside.

This mural commemorates the many sacrifices of the brave men and women of the United States Armed Forces.

From Lexington and Concord to the shores of Iwo Jima, from the Sea of Tranquility to the Anchorage Front Line, Americans have fought and died through the ages to secure our nation’s freedom.

May their sacrifices remind us all that freedom is a privilege afforded to the many, yet hard won by a noble few.
