More than a month since the game’s debut for iOS at E3 2015, Bethesda’s Fallout Shelter finally has an Android release date. At a Fallout panel at QuakeCon earlier today, the video game publisher announced that the free-to-play mobile game would come to the Google Play Store on Thursday, August 13th.

Not only that, but the game’s release on Android will also come with a big update, which will also launch for iOS users that same day. The update will bring some new enemies to the game such as Deathclaw, who will supposedly be much more difficult to kill than other enemies. Some new rewards are also coming to the game, including Mr. Handy, who will be able to travel through your vault, collect resources and fight for you, and also be sent out into the wasteland if need be.
In case you’re unfamiliar, Fallout Shelter takes place in none other than in the world of Fallout, putting you in charge of an entire vault. It’s your job to collect food, water and other resources for the vault population, as well as protect them from attacks, fires and enemies. If you’re a fan of the Fallout franchise, you should probably give Fallout Shelter a try.
So, who’s excited?
