Xbox Store Today: Fallout Shelter, 8Days, Adventure Pop, more

Today’s Xbox Games Store update is brought to you by dangerous dystopias…

While some players venture out into the irradiated aboveground to battle Deathclaws and Ghouls, others are content to spend their time in the Fallout universe managing their own Vault. If that sounds appealing, then you’ll be happy to know that Fallout Shelter is now available as a free download for the Xbox One. Vault-Tec will provide players with their own state-of-the-art Vault, but it’ll take a good manager to survive underneath The Wasteland.

Also available to download for the Xbox One today is 8Days, a retro-themed twin-stick shooter that takes place in a dystopian future of corrupt mercenaries and even more corrupt mass media.

Finally today, players looking for their next bubble shooter obsession will be able to download Adventure Pop, which is also now available for the Xbox One. It might not be a dystopia per se, but their are pirates and puzzles galore.

You can learn more about all of today’s additions to the Xbox Games Store after the break. (more…)

Fallout Shelter will be released for Xbox One and Windows 10 PCs next week

Bethesda and Microsoft have announced that Fallout Shelter will be released for the Xbox One and Windows 10 PCs next week. The free-to-play Vault management sim will launch on February 7, and it’ll also be available as an Xbox Play Anywhere title so players will be able to share their progress in the game on their Xbox One and all Windows 10 devices.

Xbox One owners will be happy to know that Fallout Shelter has been adapted to work with a controller on the console, and it’s also packed with a new set of Achievements. Here’s what else the Xbox Wire had to say about the game:

Fallout Shelter thrusts players into the role of Overseer to build their own Vault, manage dwellers, and adventure through Fallout’s iconic wasteland. Since the game’s original launch in 2015, the game has continued to expand and add features, including Crafting, Scrapping, Pets, additional rooms, iconic Fallout 4 characters, and special Dweller customization options. The game’s constantly growing Quest system allows Overseers to send Dwellers out into the Wasteland to abandoned buildings, decrepit Vaults, and mysterious caves to uncover legendary loot and face off against enemies like Radscorpions, Ghouls, and powerful bosses.

Fallout Shelter is also currently available to download through Steam, and on iOS and Android devices.

Bethesda has good news for everyone who wants to play Fallout Shelter on their PC… the apocalyptic survival sim will be available to download beginning on June 14.

The publisher also confirmed that the game’s 1.6 update, which was announced during Bethesda’s E3 Press Conference this year, will be available on Thursday as well. The 1.6 update was described as the “really big one” and will include never-before-seen locations, characters, enemies, and a brand new series of Quests.

It’s unknown exactly how the PC version might differ from the currently-available mobile edition, but we’ll find out soon enough.

Bethesda reveals Fallout 4 add-ons, Fallout Shelter for PC, and Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim Special Edition for PC, PS4, Xbox One

Bethesda’s Game Director, Todd Howard, delivered an update on the studio’s future projects at the publisher’s E3 Press Conference tonight. And that includes three upcoming add-ons for Fallout 4 that might be closer to release than you realize.

First up is Contraptions, an add-on that’ll let players build wildly-connected do-hickeys such as elevators, track kits, sorting machines, and conveyor belts. Players will also be able to adorn their settlements with armor and weapon racks, and they’ll be able to do it beginning next week. In July, the Vault-Tec Workshop add-on will be released, which will set players… wait for it… build their own Vaults and experiment on dwellers. Finally, in August, Bethesda will launch Nuka-World, the final major expansion for Fallout 4.

But wait, Howard wasn’t done yet. He also revealed that Fallout Shelter will be released for the PC this July, and the oft-rumored The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim will be remastered for the PC, PS4, and Xbox One on October 28.

The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim – Special Edition will include a ton of enhanced graphical tricks including remastered art effects, volumetric god rays, dynamic depth of field, screen-space reflections, new snow shaders, and new water shaders.

Oh, and PS4 and Xbox One owners will be able to play mods in The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim – Special Edition as well.
