While Fallout is known for its epic landscape and immersive narrative, 2015’s Fallout Shelter brought the series’ survival elements down to the small screen on iOS and Android (and later, PC), with the title now headed over to Xbox One and Windows 10.

In an update on Xbox Wire, developer Bethesda Softworks announced that Fallout Shelter will release for Xbox One and Windows 10 PCs on February 7th, 2017. The free-to-play title will be brought over to both platforms from its release on mobile and PC, while also featuring the added benefit of Xbox Play Anywhere compatibility, allowing users to switch between Xbox One and PC and carry over progress, save files, and more between both platforms seamlessly.

Along with the added features of Xbox Play Anywhere, Fallout Shelter has also been “fully adapted” to work with the Xbox One controller, allowing Xbox One or PC players to play the title from the comfort of a controller.

The game was originally announced and released during Bethesda’s first press conference at E3 2015, with the game bringing a smaller-scaled taste of the Fallout universe to players by allowing them to build and establish their own community of Vault Dwellers.

Fallout Shelter is available now for PC, iOS, and Android, while the game is heading to Xbox One and Windows 10 PCs next week on February 7th, 2017.
