“Fallout 4” is due to roll on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and Microsoft Windows on November 10, but ahead of its release, developer Bethesda Softworks is also launching the Android version of another “Fallout” game.
According to Telegraph, Bethesda Softworks is set to unveil “Fallout Shelter” on Android on Thursday (Aug. 13).
“Fallout Shelter” was first released on the App Store for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch in June this year. Soon after, it became the most downloaded game in nearly 50 countries as well as the most downloaded app of any kind in about 25 nations, Telegraph added.
Meanwhile, several outlets have started accepting pre-orders of “Fallout 4” ahead of the November release and some outlets also offer a range of deals for early birds.
Bethesda Game Studios has also unveiled the “Fallout 4” official trailer.
The game is set in Boston about two centuries after a war over resources that resulted into a nuclear destruction in 2077. The in-game character is free to roam the wasteland with his dog sidekick, pick up some armaments and defend his base from other holocaust survivors.
The International Business Times wrote, “Fallout 4” differs from its two predecessors in terms of how a player would want the game to end. In the upcoming version, there will no longer have a hard finish. This means a player can revisit and explore the game even after a game has ended or the player left the game.
It also noted that VATS will no longer stop time, which means battles are never-ending.
“Fallout 4”, which is the fifth installment in the Fallout series, was announced at the Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3) in June. According to Telegraph, the first two were released in 1997 and 1998 and were created by Interplay Entertainment and developed by Black Isle Studios. In 2007, Bethesda acquired the game franchise. “Fallout 3” kicked off on 2008 while “Fallout: New Vegas” followed two years later.
