With Bethesda supposedly planning a reveal of Fallout Shelter for PlayStation 4 on Sunday, PlayStation Network rushed the gun and posted the achievements for Fallout's little free-to-play brother, practically confirming the game's arrival.

The news came by way of Exophase, a site that tracks PSN, Xbox and Steam achievements. So, Fallout Shelter has a list of 34 achievements for your underground dwelling to reach and of varying difficulty of course.

Note however that it's highly uncommon to see trophies released far ahead of the game, prompting many to suspect that Bethesda will both announce and launch Fallout Shelter on their Sunday's E3 conference. It would indeed make sense and as much as we're fans of Fallout Shelter here - this is not the type of game you announce a year ahead and anxiously wait for its release.

Moreover, there are rumours swirling around of a possible Switch version, which would indeed make sense. Nintedo's little platform seems to be the only one that doesn't run Fallout Shelter by now. Hopefully, that changes come Sunday, although we wouldn't bet on it just yet.

In case you're not familiar with the cutest of Fallouts ever, Fallout Shelter has players building their own post-apocalyptic communities from a specialised shelter, which keeps them safe, healthy and well fed. Well, most of the time.

Much like their real life counterparts, Fallout Shelter dwellers tend to be talented for different things, leaving it up to you to find their perfect job. Find it and they'll thrive, together with the Shelter and its glorious leader.

Your dwellers can run radio rooms, water, sewage and even explore the wastelands, hopefully finding new valuable loot. Fallout Shelter has a crafting system as well, so plenty of fun in a deceptively simple game.

Naturally, not everything is as simple as it seems, since you'll have all sorts of threats from inside and outside, making managing your shelter a straight up nightmare at times. Not much we can spoil here, because the game is readily available on pretty much everything else, so all that's left is to wait for the official word.
