Fallout Shelter arrives in China's massive market

iPhone users in this gamer-rich country can now play Bethesda's first game designed for mobile.

Bethesda's hit mobile game Fallout Shelter is now available in another massive market: China. The game launched in the country today, July 22, for iOS devices.

Bethesda teamed up with Shanda Games Ltd to jointly publish the game in the gamer-rich nation of China. This represents the first time Bethesda has partnered with a local publisher in China, the Maryland-based company said in a news release today.

Whether or not Fallout Shelter has been altered in any way to meet China's local certification rules is unclear. We have followed up with Bethesda in an attempt to get more details.

Bethesda also did not say if Fallout Shelter will be available on Android or PC in China. In the US, the game is available across iOS, Android, and PC.

Fallout Shelter recently received a new update, 1.6, which added a new quest system that challenges players to explore places like the Red Rocket Fuel Stop and Super Duper Mart from Fallout 4. Check out this post for a full rundown on Fallout Shelter's 1.6 update.

By Bethesda's latest count, Fallout Shelter had more than 50 million registered players. The game was Bethesda's first mobile title, but it won't be the last, as more are on the way.

As for Fallout 4, the game's next expansion, Vault-Tec Workshop, launches on July 26. Additionally, the last add-on, Nuka-World, comes out in August.
