At their first ever E3 press conference, Bethesda Softworks unloaded a mound of information on Doom and Fallout 4. But they also released a game live on stage, called Fallout Shelter.

Available now for iOS and coming soon to Android, Fallout Shelter is a worker placement game where players take on the role of the Overseer. You'll welcome new members into your vault, build structures inside to care for them and send them out into the wastes on deadly adventures. Charlie Hall invited Danielle Riendeau into vault 309 for a quick tour.
