In keeping tabs with Bethesda Softworks, we’ve gotten word that they have released a brand new update to Fallout Shelter, marking this as the biggest update yet. Bringing the game to version 1.6, it introduces an exciting 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, and Nuka-Cola Quantum speeds up Dwellers returning from the Wasteland and certain Vault tasks. In addition, Fallout Shelter launched on PC completely for free and can be downloaded via the Bethesda.net launcher.
Quests and New Combat System
In version 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.
Currently Fallout Shelter is available for free on the App Store with in-app purchases, while PC version can be downloaded here.
