Fallout Shelter Online is a mobile game developed by Chinese studio Shengqu Games, published by Bethesda Softworks, and currently distributed by Gaea Mobile. It is the sequel to Fallout Shelter.

It was announced at the end of May 2019, and was first made available to China, Macau, Hong Kong, and Taiwan.[1] It became available to Indonesia, Malaysia, the Philippines, Singapore, Thailand, South Korea, and Japan under Gaea Mobile on June 1, 2020.[2][3] Although the game was translated into English, a Western release has not been announced yet.


The concept and style of the game are similar to Fallout Shelter. The player still plays the role of the overseer of the vault and takes care of its prosperity, but unlike the original game, a plot and online battles were added to Fallout Shelter Online.

Residents can now only be obtained by plot tasks. Construction is not instantaneous, as in Fallout Shelter, but it takes a certain amount of time, which can be accelerated. Resources are mainly used for the development of residents. In this case, for each useful action, the superintendent receives points from the vault experience.


The game takes place in the Commonwealth. The protagonist is the future successor to the overseer of the unknown vault.

Once, the overseer left the vault for an unknown reason, taking with him the device for distributing the resources of the vault, after which the successor, assisted by secretary Jenny, became the new overseer. The vault logged Preston Garvey and Sturges who helped improve the vault and expressed their interest to help in the search for an overseer.

The purpose of the plot is to find the overseer and help the moment-minded people to revive their combat power.

After the main plot is completed, the protagonist travels to the Capital Wasteland to assist Harold and Hannibal Hamlin in fighting slavers and the Enclave.

Fallout Shelter Online received generally positive reviews from players and has a 4.2/5 on Google Play.

It has been criticized for its lack of distribution in Western regions. Some of the hero cards for the haggard and older women of the series, such as Ronnie Shaw and Isolde, also received criticism as they tend to look far younger than they should; this has been criticized for re-enforcing stereotypes that women are not valuable unless they are young and beautiful.[4]
