This year’s Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3) trade show is now going strong, and with it are a new host of all kinds of video game related announcements like from Bethesda, who has just announced the next batch of downloadable content (DLC) for “Fallout 4.”
Bethesda posted on the company’s official website, confirming the long running rumors about the upcoming additions to “Fallout 4.” According to the post, the next three DLCs for the game will be “Contraptions Workshop,” “Vault-Tec Workshop,” and the much rumored “Nuka-World.”
“Contraptions Workshop” will bring new additions to the game’s settlement system, this time adding the capability to design and create production line-like setups that can turn a settlement into one big factory. The add-on will also bring in new items for customizing settlements; like elevators, greenhouses, warehouses, fireworks, and armor racks.
“Vault-Tec Workshop” will allow players to play a full scale version of the acclaimed “Fallout Shelter” app for mobile devices. Just like in “Fallout Shelter,” “Vault-Tec Workshop” will allow “Fallout 4” players to build their own versions of the series iconic Vaults. With their Vaults, players can then attract other characters to them and act like an overseer. Players can either take care of their Vault Dwellers, or experiment on them through a myriad of different ways.
“Nuka-World” will be just like “Far Harbor” in that it is another major story add-on to the game, this time letting players visit the titular theme park which has now been taken over by Raiders. Presumably, the park carries pre-war technology which the Raiders will use to get in the way of the player.
Todd Howard, game director for “Fallout 4,” recently had an interview with IGN at the event where he revealed the new developments for post-release content for the game. Howard’s interview specifically focused on the “Nuka-World” DLC, detailing more about the installment’s contents and how it fits into the overall scope of “Fallout 4.”
Just like the last three DLCs; “Automatron,” “Wasteland Workshop,” and “Far Harbor;” this next batch will have two DLCs mainly aimed at adding new game mechanics with the last one being a major story update.
Each DLC will begin arriving as early as this month, with “Contraptions Workshop” set to go live on June 21. “Vault-Tec Workshop” will follow in July, with “Nuka-World” set for August.
As “Nuka-World” is the final installment for the game, there will be no more additional content after it, although the developers have promised that they will be focusing efforts in improving and refining mod support “Fallout 4” with the phrase “things are just getting started with Mods for the game.”
