What you need to know

  • Fallout Shelter is a free-to-play game about managing a "Vault" of survivors.
  • It's getting a sequel called "Fallout Shelter Online" in China.
  • The sequel adds the ability to fight other players and join clans.
  • It's unclear if and when it's coming to other countries at this time.

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.

  • They need to add something to the main game to make it worth playing after you maxed everything out. I still have achievements left!
  • Maybe they'll convince Bethesda to adopt Xbox Live for the Android and iOS versions as well so that it syncs world's between Xbox, PC, and mobile.
  • Yeah, now that they have XBL tools in place for those in other platforms, that would be fantastic. I doubt we would get the play anywhere synching that we have currently with Windows and Xbox.
