A Fallout 4 Character is Being Added to Fallout Shelter

If you’re like most of the RPG-playing world, you’re eagerly awaiting the release of the 4th main installment of Bethesda’s Fallout series and playing the company’s mobile spin-off game Fallout Shelter to help ease you through it. If that’s the case, you may have noticed a new character by the name of Preston Garvey.

Though Fallout Shelter doesn’t mention it, Mr. Garvey, who was added to the game just today, is in fact a major Fallout 4 character that you could have seen if you watched the game’s pre-E3 demo.

Belonging to the Commonwealth Minutemen, Preston Garvey comes equipped with what will be his signature weapon in Fallout 4, a dirty looking and presumably cobbled-together “laser musket”. He can be found within one of Fallout Shelter’s lunchboxes, if you’re curious to add him to your vault’s gene pool.

Fallout Shelter is currently only available for Apple iOS, with no concrete date for the Android port, which they assured us at E3 would be a reality at some point. That being said, it will make the jump to PC, PS4 and Xbox 1 this November 10th.

    Guy looks pretty badass. Am really surprised that I have yet to get tired of Fallout Shelter, typically get sick of mobile games really fast.

    Revealed? Not really, he was in the Fallout 4 Gameplay during the Microsoft E3 conference, wasn’t he?

    That’s the most gormless looking character I’ve ever seen.

    Really fun then? How’s the F2P implementation?

    It’s pretty amusing if you enjoy Fallout, not exactly for long periods of play though. The F2P model for the game isn’t all that intrusive. No paying to speed things up or really absurd wait times. Longest wait time you’ll have is for skill training and that’ll be at the max around a day. The only thing available to buy are extra lunchbox packs which you can already get pretty easily and the game can be played as normal without even getting them. Generally a very fair system.
