One of the best surprises that happened during E3 2015 was Bethesda’s press event. Oh by the way, Bethesda Softworks is the studio behind The Elder Scrolls and Fallout, for you who don’t know. At E3 2015, at least for me, the best part of Bethesda announcement is not their amazing games lineup, but the fact that they’ve finally made the decision to join mobile community.
Still in E3 2015, Bethesda announced two games developed exclusively for mobile which means the games aren’t just a companion for the console game and can be played separately. The first one will be coming soon to iPad and is using card trading mechanism. The other one is a casual spin-off version of Bethesda’s upcoming game, Fallout 4, and it’s called Fallout Shelter.
Why is it called as casual spin-off? That’s because Fallout Shelter is giving us sort of the general, overall overview, of the Fallout series. Anyway, for those of you who don’t anything about Fallout series, Fallout is a series of post-apocalyptic role-playing video games. The story is about the Vault Dweller who leave/doing mission outside the Vault, in the Wasteland. The vault here is like a safe house for the survivor of the apocalyptic world.
Fallout Shelter itself is not the only spin-off that’ve ever been done by Bethesda Softworks. Beside Fallout Shelter, there are also two other spin-off games. In 2001, Fallout Tactics: Brotherhood of Steel takes on turn-based combat, and in 2004, Fallout: Brotherhood of Steel takes on action role-playing game.
