Fallout Shelter update adds pets

Life's ruff in the Commonwealth.

Fallout Shelter's latest update allows you to add pets to your vault dwelling community.

"Vault-Tec research has shown that four-legged companions can have a profound impact on Vault happiness and productivity," the developer explained on the Bethesda blog.

Other additions include a new "sell-all" option to make inventory management more convenient, the option to exile slackers to the wasteland, and even new courtship moves for its more lovesick denizens. "Bored with the same pickup lines and conversations? Dwellers have finally learned some new ways to impress other dwellers and the opposite sex," the snappy update log teased.

The update also adds "Dweller management improvements and new objectives" along with "more Vault-Tec certified improvements and optimisations."

You can grab Fallout Shelter for free on the App Store or Google Play.
