Fallout Shelter is Available Now on PS4 and Nintendo Switch for Free

Protect your Fallout survivors.

During Bethesda's E3 2018 press conference Fallout director Todd Howard announced that Fallout Shelter will be coming out on PlayStation 4 and Nintendo Switch tonight for free.

Fallout Shelter is Bethesda's mobile management sim which came out in 2016 for mobile devices. In Fallout Shelter, players managed their very own vaults and managed the lives of their vault dwellers. Howard says that Fallout Shelter on PS4 and Switch will still be free-to-play.

Fallout Shelter leaked earlier this week when trophies for Fallout Shelter were revealed early. Regardless, for fans who want to control the lives of their little Fallout survivors there's now even more platforms to play a post-nuclear Armageddon god.
