Fallout Shelter receives its "biggest update yet"

Adds crafting, new rooms, haircuts and pets.

Fallout Shelter has received what publisher Bethesda is calling its "biggest update yet".

The free community managment game's 1.4 update adds a new crafting system with rooms dedicated to building armour and weapons.

There's also plenty of new cosmetic features like new outfits and weapons, a barbershop that allows you to change the 'dos of your vault dwellers, and more pet options like parrots.

Here's the full list of changes via the Bethesda Blog:

  • Turn worthless junk into useful items! Introducing... crafting!
  • New Rooms! Build the new Weapon and Armour crafting rooms and use them to create your own items in game!
  • Lunchboxes now contain a bonus 5th card: Junk! Trust us - it's more useful than it sounds. Lucky wasteland explorers may also find junk on their adventures.
  • Take the Overseer role to the next level. Build the new Barbershop and customize the look of any Dweller.
  • Keep up with the latest fashions! Find new Outfits and Weapons straight from Fallout 4 in lunchboxes, or craft them yourself!
  • Because four-legged companions bring overwhelming happiness, we've added new Dogs and Cats, and are introducing... Parrots! Plus, new Pet bonuses!
  • Time of day is now properly reflected. Because authentic Vault simulation is our #1 goal!
