'Fallout Shelter' delivers new quests and special events with latest update

fallout shelter updates with weekly quests nuka world event falloutshelterupdate
Bethesda has updated its popular, free-to-play PC game and mobile app Fallout Shelter, giving amateur vault overseers access to a series of game-changing quests and special events that will roll out on a regular basis in the months ahead.

Fallout Shelter‘s latest update also introduces an exclusive mission featuring Nuka World, a post-apocalyptic theme park that will make its debut as part of Fallout 4‘s final batch of downloadable content launching at the end of this month.

Released in 2015, Fallout Shelter is a simulation game that puts players in the role of a Vault-Tec overseer in the wake of a global nuclear war. Players manage the day-to-day operations of an underground vault, assigning residents jobs in order to collect resources, build expansions, and defend the bunker from outside threats.

Fallout Shelter saw frequent updates after its initial release, and recent patches have introduced several new features including cloud saving, expanded inventory management options, and in-game pets.

After installing version 1.7 of Fallout Shelter, players will see new quests pop up in the overseer’s office after they accomplish various in-game objectives. Accepting the new quests allows players to send their customizable vault dwellers out into the surrounding wasteland in search of resources and stat-boosting combat encounters.

Bethesda notes that many new quest types will soon be available, including special events and holiday quests. Players can also expect to see a new weekly quest every Friday. If the barrage of new quests becomes overwhelming, players can now skip specific missions by spending Nuka-Cola Quantum, a form of in-game currency.

The first of Bethesda’s many planned special event quests for Fallout Shelter is a limited-time Nuka World-themed mission. After completing the mission, players will receive random visits from Nuka World mascots Bottle and Cappy, who will grant bonus caps and Nuka-Cola Quantum when tapped.

Fallout Shelter is available as a free download via Bethesda’s site, Google Play, and the iTunes App Store. Mobile players will be prompted to install the latest update after launching the Fallout Shelter app.
