Fallout Shelter has improved considerably since the apocalyptic strategy game launched last summer, and Bethesda continues to release new content for loyal Vault Dwellers to enjoy. Just in time for the spookiest time of the year, the game’s latest update has added some Halloween-specific features.
Starting this month with Update 1.8, you’ll be able to customize the rooms of your vault with Halloween themes and dress your citizens in season-appropriate attire. The outfits are available as quest rewards, and Bethesda promises “special event Holiday Quests” to keep you in the spooky spirit. Similar celebrations will also be held for Thanksgiving and Christmas.
With the release of iOS 10, Fallout Shelter introduced sticker packs, primarily depicting Vault Boy showing off his famous smile, giving the thumbs-up, and trying (in vain) to eat food from a can. Open up the sticker set now and you’ll be greeted by several Halloween additions. Want Vault Boy as a zombie, Dracula, or a mummy? What about the Grim Reaper? They’re all available right now, and serve to make the cartoon character even creepier than he already is.
The update also brings with it some non-seasonal additions, as well. You can now show where your allegiances lie by building the “Theme Workshop.” This new room lets you craft room themes from The Minutemen, Railroad, Institute, and Brotherhood of Steel factions from Fallout 4 and previous games in the series. As with the Halloween outfits, the recipes to unlock these faction themes will be found through quests.
Back in August, the previous update for Fallout Shelter added special quests centered around the Nuka World theme park, as well as the ability to skip missions through the soda Nuka-Cola Quantum. The game is now available for iOS, Android, and PC.
