Bethesda Game Studios' vault-building simulator Fallout Shelter is now available to play on Steam. The Steam version of the game has launched nine months after the game originally debuted for PC on the Bethesda Launcher. The game has also received an update across all platforms that introduces 30 new quests and time-limited Easter rewards.

Fallout Shelter is a 2-D vault building simulator set in the Fallout universe. The game uses a free-to-play model on all platforms; players can elect to purchase Vault-Tec Lunchboxes and other randomized loot containers to speed up their progression of the game. In the years since its initial release, the game has had several major updates that have added new items, rooms, and Legendary Dwellers to the game. New game mechanics were introduced as well such as collectible pets, a questing system, and quality-of-life improvements like the ability to evict dwellers from your vault. Originally announced alongside the debut of Fallout 4Fallout Shelter made $5.1 million in the first two weeks of its release.
