If you're one of the many, many Android fans who is desperately excited to get their hands on Bethesda's vault management game Fallout Shelter, there are two bits of info you need to know.

One: no one knows when the game will be out today, not even Bethesda. PR chief Pete Hines said "I dunno what time Shelter will be out for Android. It will be out [today]. I promise".

If I was a betting man, I'd say the game will hit Google Play at around 9AM Pacific Time, which is 5PM British Summer Time.

Two: this is likely Bethesda's Google Play profile, so bookmark it and hammer F5 with the strength of a Norse god all day until the game appears.

Or, you know, just read Pocket Gamer. We'll keep you in the loop.

In our Bronze Award review of the iOS edition we said "Fallout Shelter is a bit of a slow burn, but it's a solid casual experience all the same. It looks lovely, and it just about manages to capture some of the grim humour of the main Fallout series".
