“You see junk. I see the building blocks of life. Mine, in particular.” Tackle the wasteland with a new robot companion that can shoot, blast, punch and slap its way past any foe in your way. Here’s the Automatron trailer.
Well, damn. I need to get around to finishing Fallout 4. Doesn’t it suck having a massive backlog of games when cool looking DLC like this is about to come out?
The trailer sets the story backdrop. You’ve been attacked three times by waves of robots. Your job? Find the source and kick its ass. In the process, you’ll harvest parts from fallen robots to build and mod your own.
Bethesda touts hundreds of mods you can mix and match. Pick all kinds of limbs, armor and weapons and mix them to your hearts content. We get a sneak peek at some of the customization in the trailer.
Ha! Love the stuffed animal head.
The customization doesn’t stop with weapons and armor. Customizable paint schemes and voices are also included.
You’ll be building your own robot killing machines when the Automatron DLC releases on March 22. Didn’t buy the season pass when it was still $30? Well, it’s now $50. Or, you can buy the Automatron separately for $9.99.
What’s next for Fallout 4 DLC
With the Automatron release almost here, here’s what other Fallout 4 goodness you have to look forward to.
In April, the Wasteland Workshop DLC lets you capture and tame live creatures. Everything from random raiders to the biggest beasts in the Wasteland. Then, you can have them face off against one another or even your fellow settlers. Wasteland Workshop also offers new design options for settlements including nixi tube lighting, taxidermy and more.
May is the date most Fallout 4 fans are waiting for. This is the first meaty expansion, and it’s called Far Harbor. Here’s how Bethesda describes it:
A new case from Valentine’s Detective Agency leads you on a search for a young woman and a secret colony of synths. Travel off the coast of Maine to the mysterious island of Far Harbor, where higher levels of radiation have created a more feral world. Navigate through the growing conflict between the synths, the Children of Atom, and the local townspeople. Will you work towards bringing peace to Far Harbor, and at what cost? Far Harbor features the largest landmass for an add-on that we’ve ever created, filled with new faction quests, settlements, lethal creatures and dungeons. Become more powerful with new, higher-level armor and weapons. The choices are all yours.
That’s all the Fallout 4 DLC we know about right now, but Bethesda promises more. A lot more. According to the developer, the increase in the scope of DLC is why they increased the season pass price to $50 earlier this month.
There’s a lot to look forward to if you’re a Fallout 4 fan. What do you think of the Automatron DLC trailer? What kind of crazy robots are you already cooking up?
