The day that Fallout fans on Android have been waiting for has finally come. No Fallout 4 is still 4 months away from release. I’m talking about being able to download Fallout Shelter from Google Play.
When Bethesda announced Fallout 4 at E3 earlier this year, they created a large amount of buzz by announcing that there would be a Pipboy smartphone case and a second screen Pipboy app and also that there would be a mobile app called Fallout Shelter. Android fans were immediately dejected upon learning that its initial release would be iOS only and an Android release would come at a later date.
In it’s initial 2 weeks on Apple’s App Store, Bethesda generated $5.1 million in revenue.
It wasn’t long until Pete Hines, Vice President of PR/Marketing at Bethesda tweeted that the Android version should be out in August.

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

Well, that day is today. Fallout Shelter is now available on Google Play for the extremely reasonable price of $0. There are in-app purchases if you wish to play faster, but they are not required. So what are you waiting for? Click the link below and get downloading.
