Following the releases of Automatron, Wasteland Workshop, and Far Harbor, Bethesda hopes to sweeten the upcoming summer months with additional Fallout 4 downloadable content packs.
Beginning with Contraptions Workshop, Fallout 4‘s fourth add-on will include the ability to create elevators, armor and weapon racks, track kits, sorting machines, and conveyor belts. Contraptions Workshop will be available for download next week.
Moving on to Vault-Tec Workshop, this DLC pack takes a cue from Bethesda’s Fallout Shelter mobile title by letting players create their own Vaults. As you create your Vault, however, you are bound to come across enemies in your way, so you will need to keep an eye out for any nasty surprises. In addition, you can also experiment on dwellers, which should make for some comical videos. Vault-Tec Workshop will be available for download sometime in July.
Thirdly, the Nuka-World DLC will take place in the iconic soft drink’s themed pre-war amusement park. According to Bethesda’s Todd Howard, the park has been taken over by bandits, with the DLC pack similar to Far Harbor in that it is filled with story content. Howard also revealed that Nuka-World will be Fallout 4’s last DLC. Nuka-World will be available sometime in August.
On a related note, Bethesda announced an update to Fallout Shelter, available for iOS and Android, which the publisher said was the most-played Bethesda game in the company’s history. The update will include a revamped combat system that will let players drag their finger to the enemies they want to target, as well as additional locales, characters, and enemies. Finally, you will be able to send dwellers to different locales in order to complete quests. The new update will be available sometime in July, with Fallout Shelter making its way to PC that same month.
