Bethesda Game Studios announced today that their hit mobile game, Fallout Shelter, will be arriving on Xbox One and Windows 10 on February 7th. Additionally, as a Play Anywhere title, players will be able to share their saves and data across the X1 and PC platforms as a unified account. The game will continue to be free to download and play.

Fallout Shelter was a large hit with surprising depth for a mobile game. As an accessible free to play title, it could be rather relaxing to sit back with a controller to build out your vaults. This is also a rather surprising announcement from Bethesda as it only relates to the Xbox and Windows platform. Given the Fallout 4 deal with Xbox at E3, and Todd Howard being involved in Microsoft’s Scorpio teaser, we’re wondering if this is a preview of some larger relationship that is developing.
