Fallout Shelter hitting Xbox next week, supports Play Anywhere

Bethesda Softworks’ highly successful mobile debut Fallout Shelter is making the jump to Xbox One this week and, along with it, to the Windows store. While the game is already playable through Bethesda’s own game launcher, the Windows 10-specific version of the game brings Play Anywhere support. You can manage your shelter on your Xbox One while you’re at home and your laptop while you’re at work and the boss isn’t looking.

Fallout Shelter debuted on iOS at E3 2015 before appearing on Android that fall. I played a ridiculous amount of it on Android before a disgusted look from our own Joey Davidson finally shamed me into quitting it this summer, like I should’ve months ago. The game appeared in Bethesda’s game launcher back in July 2016.

This game is absurdly popular

Fallout Shelter is the most-played Fallout game in the series trackable history, and it has seen since its release the addition of things like pets, new rooms, and even new game mechanics. I admit that I even spent some money on the game. There, I said it. The secret haunts me no more.

While it’s possible to transfer saves from the Android version of the game top the original PC version through some unofficial hackery, there’s no word yet on whether the saves from the standard PC version will transfer to the Windows 10-specific version, though such a concession would certainly make players more eager to switch.

Fallout Shelter will be available on Xbox One and Windows 10 on February 7.
