The first update for the Fallout Shelter iOS game from Bethesda has been released.

Fallout Shelter was released in June, during E3, for iOS devices and is scheduled for release in August for Android devices. Developed and published by Bethesda, Fallout Shelter is part of the Fallout series and was released ahead of Fallout 4 which is due for release later this year in November.

Fallout Shelter puts players in control of their very own Vault and they need to grow the population while keeping them happy.

The update for Fallout Shelter has added a brand new feature, the Photo Mode. This mode allows players to take a screenshot of their vault and send it to friends if they wish; this is done by tapping a button on the bottom-left corner of the screen to take an image of whatever is on the screen without the HUD being in shot.

The issue with pregnancy in game should be fixed now thanks to the vault engineers who fixed those pesky vault filters among some other problems such as crashing.

The patch notes for the first update can be found on the Bethesda blog and are also below:

  • Overseers are encouraged to record any bizarre dweller behavior with the new Photo Feature. Sharing with those outside your Vault is optional, and will not result in your replacement or termination.
  • Vault air filters have been causing some mothers to not deliver babies and we understand this is causing long term discomfort. We have solved this (not the discomfort, the baby coming out part).
  • We’ve also done general maintenance to improve sudden Vault shut down and removed some other pesky issues with the capacitors inside various aspects of the simulation.
