Fallout Shelter number 1 in 48 countries

Bethesda have announced that their mobile game, Fallout Shelter, set in the beloved Fallout universe, quickly became the #1 downloaded game in 48 countries and the top downloaded app of any kind in 25 countries following its release on the App Store for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch.

The game is free to download at the App Store and is currently in development for Android devices.

“We play games on our phones all the time, and have always wanted to make one,” said Todd Howard, Game Director at Bethesda Game Studios. “To have our first mobile game be enjoyed by so many is stunning. It just shows that gamers appreciate more depth and being treated fairly. It also shows people love Fallout as much as we do.”
