Fallout Shelter Coming to Android in August

    Fallout 4, the game we have been waiting for since we completed Fallout 3 for the first time years ago, is on its way. This is old news now, but they are making us wait until November, which is a very long time!

    iOS users have been able to ease the pain of the wait with a mobile game called Fallout Shelter for a few weeks now. It was released shortly after E3 and has been a big hit, it even managed to dethrone the infamous Candy Crush Saga from the spot as highest-earning iOS app. Android users can now take a breath of relief as it has finally been announced when Android users will be getting a taste of the awesomeness. Tweeted by Bethesda's vice president of PR and marketing Pete Hines himself:
    So, August it is.

    But that is not all Bethesda is doing to remind us that Fallout 4 is on the way. To convince us to pre-order, Bethesda and Microsoft has thrown in a little something extra. Pre-order the game now, and you get a digital copy of Fallout 3 for free:

    "For a limited time, pre-order Fallout 4 for Xbox One and receive Fallout 3 on Xbox 360. The code for Fallout 3 will be delivered to your Xbox message center in 7-10 days. Redeem your code on Xbox.com or on your Xbox 360. Fallout 3 will be included in Xbox One backwards compatibility access when made available."

    Seems to be a Bethesda also stated that the first line-up of retail editions for the Xbox One will have a Fallout 3 token attached with it, giving you access to the game digitally. Hines confirms that this is an offer for Xbox One only, and will not be available for customers on other platforms.

    Oh, and as a nice treat to anyone in the UK that missed out on the currently sold out Fallout 4 Pipboy Edition, I'm happy to tell you that pre-orders will be back in stock at GAME this weekend, starting July 3. First come first serve, so you better have your money ready when they open the doors, or be ready to make the purchase online as soon as it's possible. Good luck!

    Hyped for this anyone?

    Too bad it will be too old by then for us to even care. Hope they got enough money from the Apple users....

    I have a sneaky suspicion it was ready since it was released on Apple. No doubt Apple knew the popularity of the game and decided to do what Microsoft keeps doing with some popular upcoming games and make out the game isn't ready for other platforms, this promotes users to purchase the working platform just to play the game. This is of course just a hunch, but releasing a game 1 month after It's "exclusive release" says to me that Apple paid to get it released on Apple first.

    Also, another good point to my "hunch" is the fact that the android version wasn't even mentioned at E3, why?. If it was only 1 month away why didn't they bother to mention the fact it wasn't only just coming out for Apple users..... It sounds all to familiar with the likes of Tomb Raider Rise of the Tomb Raider, they only mention it being an Xbox one exclusive, and when pushed for answers are told " oh yeah, we forgot to mention it will be out on other platforms at a later date"......

    I really can't stand when companies do this..... No matter if it's Microsoft, Apple, Activation, Triarch or Sony.

    It's not like it actually really works, you only have to look at Xbox's One sales compared to the PS4 to see that making games "temporarily exclusive" Doesn't mean higher gross capital profit.

    End of rant.
