Bethesda Softworks announce that Fallout Shelter has reached 100 million users.
Two years after its surprise unveiling and release at E3 2015, Fallout Shelter has reached 100 million users across smart phones, tablets, PC, and Xbox One.
According to Bethesda more than a billion Dwellers have been sent out to explore the Wasteland across 7.5 billion game sessions. (I’m pretty sure that at least one of those sessions was mine.)
To mark the achievement Bethesda has released a new infographic containing some eye-watering play statistics.

- Vaults created: 40,208,741

To celebrate passing the 100 million user milestone, a five-day giveaway begins on 15th September that will offer daily rewards, including in-game loot such as Lunchboxes, Nuke Cola Quantum, and other helpful items.
Fallout Shelter is currently available on the App Store, Google Play, Xbox One and Windows 10 via Play Anywhere, and PC via Steam, or through Bethesda’s launcher.
