Fallout Shelter download time on iPhone Vs Android

On top of revealing some new Fallout 4 gameplay and features at E3 2015, Bethesda had a big surprise in store during their E3 event. The reveal of a new mobile game built by Bethesda which is called Fallout Shelter and the surprising bombshell that it is due for release instantly.

Bethesda revealed that they had been working with Apple closely on the game since the launch of the iPhone and now Fallout Shelter is going to put you in the hands of the overseer who has the task of creating his own vault.

In it, you’ll control your community and train them up so that they are ready to do battle against the bad guys. Incorporating elements from The Sims, XCOM and similar games – the big surprise is that Bethesda said it will be free to download, but is not behind a paywall and doesn’t require an internet connection to play.

Bethesda’s show is still running, but they said that the Fallout Shelter download time on iPhone will be available as soon as the show ends on June 14 or June 15 depending on where you are.

We’ll let the gameplay below do the talking. Watch it below and let us know what you think about this great announcement – are you waiting to download Fallout Shelter on iPhone right now?

We have a feeling that it is going to break the iPhone charts once the download goes live. Android users, how do you feel about this though as it looks like it could be an exclusive deal with Apple with no Fallout Shelter Android release date anytime soon?

Update: Fallout Shelter is now live on the App Store, go get it!

How do I feel when Bethesda sold itself to apple over this? Nothing because apple just dead to me when I leave the bloody vault. Because let’s be honest Pipboy is a customizable little gaget. Customize does not = Apple. Enjoy your vault time Apple! Until I bloody start the revolt <3

Doesnt sound like Android is going to get any love…figures. Apple always does get the best stuff anyways. And business deal or not, not smart on Bethesda’s part to shaft so many people who were wanting to get this.

just watched it on Youtube… he really never says Android. Damn Bethesda and damn the Apple monopoly! I prefer to never play this game than bow to the man and pay more for it

I rather have a Windows Phone than an Apple. I am not a Android fanboy. There is no such thing. There are just people who think they should be able to CHOOSE and Android, being an open system, allows that.

This is gonna be a bunch of be if it’s only on Apple products….if they are going to do that and let down millions of Android users, what does that say about fallout 4? If fallout shelter isn’t gonna be on Android soon I’m not going to pre order fallout 4…thats FOR SURE! Lol

Most of you who are commenting on how the app is Apple exclusive have not fully put to mind that several individuals in the company have android devices. The Apple release may come sooner but there will be a android version. If not then Bethesda is at a loss with android users.

I also could swear he mentioned Android. Maybe he only mentioned Android regarding the Pip Boy app?

I hate that! The Android market has grown so much and many use Android. In some countries Android smartphones rule over iPhones.

The biggest (and only) disappointment of the show was hearing that this new game was strictly for a small group of people.

It’s a bit of a bummer that it’s only on Apple products right now. However, I’m hopeful that nothing stays totally exclusive, and within months/years it could possibly be an android app as well.
