Fallout Shelter is an incredibly popular free-to-play game that is available on Xbox One and other platforms. The gameplay revolves around managing your own "Vault" as you have to deal with survival on a daily basis. The game has received a number of updates since launch, but it looks like a sequel is on the way.
According to a report by PC Gamer, "Fallout Shelter Online" is coming exclusively to China. It's unclear if it'll launch in other countries at this time, but given the fact that Fallout Shelter eventually made its way onto Xbox One, we can expect the same to happen with Fallout Shelter Online.
The outlet said the following about the upcoming game.
The game looks like it's taking the core gameplay from the original Fallout Shelter and adding a lot of interesting multiplayer features, such as the ability to battle other players and join guilds. There's also a big overworld to explore, full of dungeons to send your dwellers out to raid.
Fallout Shelter Online definitely sounds like a proper sequel due to the expanded gameplay. Hopefully, it'll come to other countries soon because fans have been asking for these features since 2017.
If you're in China, you should be able to get access to the game soon. It may be officially unveiled at E3 2019. Maybe Bethesda will also discuss when it'll roll out beyond that country. If you can't wait, be sure to check out Fallout 76 because it's the only multiplayer Fallout game available in Western territories.
War never changes
Fallout 76 is the first multiplayer online game for the Fallout series. Take on the beautiful but infected land of Appalachia West Virginia to see if you can find your Overseer and figure out what happened to Vault 76. Team up with other players to figure it out together or become a raider by killing them instead.
