A new character known as Piper from Fallout 4 is also being added to Fallout Shelter, however she is exclusive to the iOS version.

Piper will come equipped with five free lunchboxes which the player can claim once she joins their vault.

Fallout Shelter debuted in June on iOS before coming to Android devices shortly after, so perhaps the same will happen with platform exclusive characters.

The highly anticipated Fallout 4 will launch on November 10 for PS4, Xbox One and PC.

Bethesda has released a trailer to accompany Fallout Shelter’s new update, which you can check out below:
