Fallout Shelter update brings companions and holiday cheer!

Holiday cheer has come to the wasteland. Fallout Shelter received a new update bringing companions and holiday decorations.

Yaaaaaaas! If you're a Fallout boy, I've got some music for your ears. A brand new update for Fallout Shelter is available today and it is quite a beast. Bethesda released the update for their mobile title early Thursday morning and it brings tons of new features for you to better manage your vault and its inhabitants. 

Dwellers not meeting their work quotas? Cat and dog companions are now available to raise productivity and happiness. Still have a few lazy dwellers? Don't send them on a suicide mission; let them know their services are no longer needed and evict them! Things starting to get bland around your vault? New conversation objectives and management options will refresh your interest in the game. Thank your friends at Vault-Tec for all of the improvements and optimizations that also come with the update.

  • Vault-Tec research has shown that 4-legged companions can have a profound impact on Vault happiness and productivity. Introducing Pets!
  • Vault-Tec has received reports of some Dwellers not pulling their weight. Overseers are now authorized to permanently evict these lazy layabouts! Welcome to the Wasteland, slackers…
  • Bored with the same pickup lines and conversations?  Dwellers have finally learned some new ways to impress other dwellers and the opposite sex.
  • Excessive tapping causing frustration when trying to clear out excess inventory?  Overseers will love the new sell all options.
  • Dweller management improvements and new objectives should help experienced Overseers keep things running smoothly.
  • Even more
    Vault-Tec certified improvements and optimizations. Because you can never have enough improvements or optimizations.

And last but certainly not least. Holiday cheer has come to the wasteland. Snow is on the ground, decorations are in the vault, and there are plenty of holiday items to collect.

Now is the time to open up any Lunchbox's you've been sitting on. These Items will be available for a limited time so make sure you nab some while they are still available. Happy holidays, overseers, I wish you the best.
