Looking to spruce up your Vault in Fallout Shelter? Bethesda’s got just what you need in Update 1.8 for the game, which is now live and gives Overseers the ability to decorate their rooms with a theme based on one of Fallout 4’s factions.

Building the Theme Workshop allows you to craft room themes based on the Minutemen, the Railroad, the Brotherhood of Steel, or the Institute. Crafting recipes can be found in the Wasteland, and the themes can be turned on or off at will.

This new update also brings new quests to the game, including holiday quests that arrive as a precursor to full-on celebrations for Halloween, Thanksgiving, and Christmas. Halloween-themed outfits and spooky room themes will be available for a limited time.

    I honestly never heard of this game so I went on the web and searched it up. I’m not a 100% fan of it but I do like it. I wouldn’t play it normally but if I was doing a commentary or was bored I’d probably play but and after watching a few walkthroughs it’s decent but I’m understanding you craft rooms and build a shelter for people? Well this update seems awesome but I’m gonna see if this game is worth getting.

      By commentry I mean if I was doing a walkthrough video series or something.

        I agree. There is not much to do for walkthrough video than you think. There are some walkthrough with this game. But they only say some updates they did on shelter and items they got from outside and repeat. There is not a lot of contents for video. It is kinda boring at some point. and once you maxed out(people’s stats and shelter with good defense), you are basically done.

          So that’s all this game is really about? Well that’s boring I’ll pass on this game then.
