BEACON TRANSCRIPT – Microsoft announced the release of one of the most popular games in versions available for Windows 10 and Xbox One. Yes, you are right, we are talking about Fallout Shelter. The game will be available on February 7th.
What is best about this new release is the fact that the game is not only available for Windows 10 and Xbox, but also as a Play Anywhere title. This allows the users to play the game as a cross-buy between Windows and Xbox. What does this mean? If you do not have access to your PC, you can boot up Fallout Shelter on your Xbox and play it without paying extra and vice versa.
This Play Anywhere feature also grants compatibility between platforms. Thus, you can save the progress you made on the Xbox and then move to your PC and start the game from where you’ve left it. It also saves the achievements you’ve unlocked on Xbox and transfers them to the PC.
Also, Bethesda collaborated with Microsoft and Fallout Shelter works perfectly with the Xbox One controller. This launch for Windows 10 and Xbox came after Bethesda Launcher released Fallout Shelter on PC last summer, as a port of the mobile version of the game.
The game puts the player in charge of a fallout shelter after a nuclear holocaust. They have to expand the shelter, provide food for everyone, regrow the population, and find methods to ease the life of the survivors.
When the game was first launched, Fallout Shelter gained incredible popularity and occupied the top positions in the app stores. The game became so popular since it was so accessible and offered a new perspective on the Fallout universe. Usually, Fallout games are either isometric, turn-based RPGs, or first-person action-RPGs. This one successfully mixes up strategy with a time management simulator.
Players have to recover items from the outside wastelands and dangerous buildings, find the best ways to protect the dwellers of the shelter from zombies and mutants, and gather and craft items to complete quests.
Starting February 7th, players will be able to get Fallout Shelter either from the Xbox Store for Xbox One or from the Windows Store for Windows 10.
