Fallout Shelter is back, and is migrating to the PlayStation 4.

A recent trophy list of Fallout Shelter surfaced for the PS4 earlier this morning. A total of 35 trophies have been listed on the website Exophase.

 

This is the first time Fallout Shelter will be coming to a Sony console. Previously it was a mobile exclusive title from Bethesda when it launched for iOS and Android devices in 2015. The game was later ported to the PC in 2016, followed by a release of the game on the Xbox One and Windows 10 last year.

Fallout Shelter is a free-to-play casual 'light management' game where the player is in control of a state-of-the-art underground Vault from Vault-Tec. They will need to build out their vault, keep their dwellers happy, and protect them from the many dangers around the nuclear wasteland. Build important rooms for your vault, sent your dwellers out to explore the wasteland for supplies, caps, and loot while defending your home from mutated animals and more.

 

The game is a highly successful mobile game, and according to Bethesda, it is the most played Fallout game of the entire franchise.

Bethesda will likely officially announce Fallout Shelter PlayStation 4 release during their E3 press conference tomorrow at 9:30 PM Est.

 


Quick Take

This is not a surprise, really, as Bethesda does love making money with Fallout Shelter. And by re-releasing the same games on multiple platforms. It's actually a shock it took them this long to get onto the PlayStation 4, but it is still a worthy game to play regardless of what console or phone you choose. 

I wonder if Fallout 76 getting a full reveal has anything to do with this re-release as well. Maybe building extra awareness with a snap release of Fallout Shelter? Who knows though, it is Bethesda, and they tend to beat to their own drum at this point.

What do you think about Fallout Shelter? Looking forward to it being on PlayStation 4. Leave your comments below and be sure to check out the rest of our E3 2018 coverage here
