Fallout Shelter Has Over 1.3 Million Downloads

According to a new analyst report, the newly released Fallout Shelter game for iPhone and iPad has passed 1.3 million downloads since its launch on Sunday evening, June 14.

Bethesda Software surprised at the E3 2015 press event with the reveal of a Fallout Shelter game for iOS. It is the first-ever mobile game set in the Fallout franchise. Fallout Shelter immediately shot to number one on the download charts of the iTunes App Store.

App analytics firm Sensor Tower found out exclusively for I4U News what being No. 1 in the app store means for Fallout Shelter. According to Sensor Tower's proprietary algorithm the company estimates the downloads of Fallout Shelter to have passed 1.3 million. More than 50% of the downloads come from gamers located in the United States.

Fallout Shelter Downloads

Fallout Shelter is free for download, but offers in-app purchases of "Lunch boxes." Bethesda's lunch box business is estimated to have raked in $831,000 in the first days.

Fallout Shelter Revenues

The Sensor Tower data is lagging by about 2 to 3 days as all the data synchronizes globally. Which means that Fallout Shelter has already passed the $1 million in revenue in less than a week. 

Fallout Shelter ranks still No. 1 in Free Games in the App Store and No. 4 in overall Free Apps. Apple ranks it No. 4 in Top Grossing apps overall. 

Sensor Tower's analytics is based on over 75,000 apps connected to their App Store Optimization platform. The Estimated App Worth algorithm takes that data delivering accurate estimates of revenue and downloads for any app in the app store.

The firms proprietary algorithm takes into account many different factors including user numbers (on a per country basis, app market value), revenue rankings in each country (normalized by country and category), user reviews on a per country basis, app category, recent user growth compared to historical growth, and more.

Accuracy is highest for apps with lots of historical revenue data, which means that the estimates for Fallout Shelter are rough at this point. We will follow up with another report with more accurate data.

Fallout Shelter is a post-nuclear strategy and simulation experience that puts gamers in control of a state-of-the-art underground Vault. Players need to build the perfect Vault from a variety of rooms, oversee their very own thriving community of Vault Dwellers, and protect them from the dangers of the Wasteland.  Vault-Tec has provided the tools, but the rest is up to the player.
