Fallout Shelter has went from a little, fun side project for Bethesda to the most played game int he entire Fallout series. That means Bethesda will continue to support it with bit updates and patches, fixing issues while adding in new gameplay elements. One of these has just hit with Fallout Shleter Update 1.4, which brings a ton of new mechanics for players to try out.
Bethesda is calling Fallout Shelter Update 1.4 the “biggest update yet” for the months old game. The main headline change is the addition of Crafting, which will add whole new facets to the experience. Here is the full changelog for Fallout Shelter Update 1.4:
“Turn worthless junk into useful items! Introducing… crafting! New Rooms! Build the new Weapon and Armor crafting rooms and use them to create your own items in game! Lunchboxes now contain a bonus 5th card: Junk! Trust us – it’s more useful than it sounds. Lucky wasteland explorers may also find junk on their adventures. Take the Overseer role to the next level. Build the new Barbershop and customize the look of any Dweller. Keep up with the latest fashions! Find new Outfits and Weapons straight from Fallout 4 in lunchboxes, or craft them yourself! Because four-legged companions bring overwhelming happiness, we’ve added new Dogs and Cats, and are introducing… Parrots! Plus, new Pet bonuses! Time of day is now properly reflected. Because authentic Vault simulation is our #1 goal!”
Lots of big changes in there, and they surely aren’t the last. Bethesda will continue updating Fallout Shelter for as long as players are still active in the game. Keep checking back for more info later on, and be sure to let us know in the comments which of the additions in Fallout Shelter Update 1.4 is your favorite. I love crafting, but parrots are probably gonna be the best.
