Developer Bethesda has released a number of seasonal updates for the mobile title. The last one was Thanksgiving-themed and included turkeys and pilgrim attire.

Here's the full contents of the latest update:

  • Vault-Tec research has shown that 4-legged companions can have a profound impact on Vault happiness and productivity. Introducing Pets!
  • Vault-Tec has received reports of some Dwellers not pulling their weight. Overseers are now authorized to permanently evict these lazy layabouts! Welcome to the Wasteland, slackers…
  • Bored with the same pickup lines and conversations? Dwellers have finally learned some new ways to impress other dwellers and the opposite sex.
  • Excessive tapping causing frustration when trying to clear out excess inventory? Overseers will love the new sell all options.
  • Dweller management improvements and new objectives should help experienced Overseers keep things running smoothly.
  • Even more Vault-Tec certified improvements and optimizations. Because you can never have enough improvements or optimizations.

Although the updates are free, Bethesda makes money from the game through the sale of in-game lunchboxes. According to previously released statistics, in the two weeks following the game's release in June, Fallout Shelter generated more than $5.1 million in revenue from iOS alone.
