Fallout Shelter Update 1.3 New Features

Dwellers can now own pets – It seems the Overseer knows for some of us, life just isn’t complete without our furry pet friends and so the latest update has included the addition of dogs and cats! While we aren’t sure how much they improve conditions inside the vault, according to Bethesda, the furry friends do increase happiness and productivity inside the vault. The dogs and cats can be purchased in the store for $.99 each or 5 for $2.99. There’s no information about if the animals take a toll on your food supply. Nor is there any way to know if animals can be gotten as lunchbox prizes. Once we figure it out, we’ll let you know.

Lazy Dwellers Can Be Evicted – Now this is an interesting twist. Apparently overseers can permanently evict dwellers who are lazy and not pulling their weight. While this option seems interesting, I’m curious how different the performance of dwellers now is. It might change the decision-making process when determining who’s SPECIALs to train and who to leave unenhanced.

Dwellers have new pick up lines and conversation material – One aspect of the game I’ve absolutely loved is the dialogue that goes on between dwellers working together or trying to get their mac on. The cheesy pickup lines and water cooler discussions provided me a ton of entertainment. But after playing the game a while, the novelty wears off a bit simply because we’ve heard all those lines before. Thankfully Bethesda understands the importance of details like this and has brought our dwellers new pick up lines and vault conversation topics. We’ll be sure to feature a few of those when we’ve discovered them ourselves.

“Sell all” option added to inventory – when you get towards the midway point in the game you’ll probably find a lot of time is spent selling off excess weapons and equipment which means a ton of tapping. Thankfully Bethesda notices the annoying nature of the mundane task and added a “sell all” option for quickly clearing out your excess supplies.

Dweller management improvements and new objectives – ok, we have no idea what dweller management improvements means, but I’m guessing it has something to do with the Pipboy. Guess we’ll find out soon. In addition, new objectives always help to keep things fresh.

Besides these updates, Bethesda also vaguely references some additional Vault-Tec certified “improvements and optimizations” that we’ll be keeping our eyes peeled for.
