Fallout fans with Android devices have been feeling a little jilted ever since E3, when Todd Howard, Game Director at Bethesda Game Studios, announced that along with Fallout 4, Bethesda had developed a free mobile Fallout game called Fallout Shelter. Not only that, but it was available to download that same day, for iOS devices. Needless to say, we were a little disappointed. Ok, lets face it, we were a lot disappointed.
It wasn’t long until Pete Hines, Vice President of PR/Marketing at Bethesda tweeted that the Android version should be out next month.

Needless to say, our nerd rage was satiated, at least, a little. Today Bethesda took to Twitter to announce that Fallout Shelter would be available to Android users on August 13th this year.
