Fallout Shelter Adds Puppies And Kitties For Christmas

by Mike Futter on Dec 10, 2015 at 04:20 AM

It’s the most wonderful time of the year, even in a post-apocalyptic wasteland setting. Christmas has come to Fallout Shelter, and Santa Claws (the Deathclaw who brings presents to all good Vault Dwellers) has some goodies for you.

Snow is falling in the Wasteland, and your Vault is decorated for the holidays with trees and Santa hats. It looks like Santa Claws is bringing puppies and kitties to help brighten your underground days.

Pets can be equipped like weapons and armor, conferring bonuses to the Dweller to which they are assigned. Some are useful in the Vault, while others are better suited for exploration. 

A new update also allows you to permanently evict Dwellers that aren’t pulling their weight. For those that are still working on increasing Vault population through reproduction, your romantically inclined couples now have new pick-up lines.

Finally, you can now sell all items when clearing out your surplus inventory. With space at a premium, efficiency matters.

Fallout Shelter was ranked the number two game in Apple’s year-end awards. You can read more about that here and download the game free for iOS and Android on those respective storefronts. For more, check out our review.
