Industrial Freakfest Fallout.Shelter Goes Underground This Weekend

Something especially insidious will be lurking just beneath downtown Phoenix after darkness falls weekend. But before you ask, it's not a C.H.U.D., Balrog, or hellspawn.

More like a slew of sinister subterranean creatures of a more fetishistic and rivethead bent. Specifically, we're referring to the throng of pleather-clad freaks and geeks who will stomp around below ground during the latest reincarnation of Fallout.Shelter on Saturday.
