Fallout 4 DLC: 5 Things to Know Now

New Fallout 4 DLC is confirmed for Xbox One, PS4 and PC including Nuka World and two new Workshops that add new items and more.

Fallout 4 is a huge game with tons of places to visit, enemies to conquer, items to pick up, settlements to build, quests to complete, and characters to meet.

You won’t be able to see and do everything in 100 hours and there’s a good chance you won’t be able to do it in 400 hours either. It’s that deep.

The scary thing is that Fallout 4’s gameplay has only gotten deeper thanks to the arrival of official mods and DLC.

Bethesda recently released three Fallout 4 add-ons. The company is also planning to release more Fallout 4 DLC later this year.

Today we want to take an updated look at the current state of Fallout 4 DLC and what you need to know about the future which includes at least three more pieces of Fallout 4 DLC.

Automatron, Wasteland Workshop & Far Harbor

Let’s start with what’s out there.

Earlier this year, Bethesda confirmed an initial offering of Fallout 4 DLC. The offering includes three add-ons: Automatron, Wasteland Workshop, and Far Harbor.

Fallout4_FarHarbor_PlayerAndNick

We’ve gone into detail about each DLC pack and thus far, Far Harbor is the clear winner. The $25 add-on delivers exciting characters and quests, brand new items and enemies, new settlements, and a whole lot more.

It’s an incredible piece of downloadable content and it’s highly recommended if you want to continue your adventures in Fallout 4.

Nuka World DLC

Automatron, Wasteland Workshop and Far Harbor will be joined by new Fallout 4 DLC later this year. And today, Bethesda confirmed the next three expansions.

FO4_Nuka-WorldScreen

The first is Nuka World, a piece of DLC that emerged in game files earlier this year. The Nuka World release date is confirmed for August though the company didn’t confirm a specific release date for Xbox One, PS4, or PC.

The teaser hints at some sort of amusement park and we expect it to be the biggest of the three upcoming Fallout 4 DLC packs. Here’s how Bethesda describes it:

Take a trip to Nuka-World, a vast amusement park now a lawless city of Raiders. Explore an all-new region with an open wasteland and park zones like Safari Adventure, Dry Rock Gulch, Kiddie Kingdom and the Galactic Zone. Nuka-World features new quests, Raiders, weapons, creatures and more. Enjoy the ride!

Nuka World will cost $20 putting it between Automatron and Far Harbor and closer to Far Harbor’s $25 price point.

Fallout 4 Contraptions Workshop DLC

The rumors were true.

In addition to Nuka World, Bethesda is poised to release two new Workshop bundles.

The first new pack is called Fallout 4 Contraptions and it will bring elevators, machines, conveyor belts, race kits, weapon racks, and more.

Workshop-Contraptions

The Fallout 4 Contraptions release date is confirmed for June 21st for all three platforms (Xbox One, PS4 and PC). A beta will arrive sometime before then.

Like the Wasteland Workshop, the Contraptions Workshop will cost $5, much less than Automatron, Far Harbor, and Nuka World.

FO4_ContraptionsScreen

One other note. There’s now a file called Fallout 4 – DLC04 (480630). It’s a 252.74 MB file (for the PC) making it much smaller than Automatron and Far Harbor and a little bit larger than Wasteland Workshop.

We assume this is the Fallout 4 Contraptions Workshop.

Fallout 4 Vault-Tec Workshop DLC

The other Workshop pack is called Fallout 4 Vault-Tec Workshop.

Workshop-Vault-Tec

This workshop pack will allow you to build your own Vaults and even perform tests on the subjects housed within. Here’s how Bethesda lays it out:

Build a brighter future underground with the all-new Vault-Tec Workshop. Create a massive Vault and attract new Dwellers using pre-war industrial kits complete with retro-nostalgic furniture, lighting, and art. Even change and customize the look of your inhabitants with new barbershops and cosmetic surgery stations. And like every good Overseer, run Vault-Tec approved experiments on your Dwellers to learn what makes an ideal citizen. Vault-Tec has given you the tools, the rest is up to you!

Fallout 4 Vault-Tec Workshop will be released in July at the same $5 price point as Wasteland and Contraptions.

We expect to hear more about it in the weeks ahead.

Fallout 4 Season Pass & DLC Deals

The Fallout 4 Season Pass isn’t going anywhere.

Bethesda and its partners are still offering a $60 Fallout 4 Season Pass for all three platforms (Steam, PS4 and Xbox One). The Season Pass will net you all three of these expansions plus any content the company decides to release in the future.
Fallout-4-DLC-2

It’s worth noting that If you don’t want to pay full price for the Fallout 4 Season Pass you don’t have to pay full price for it. We’ve seen Fallout 4 Season Pass deals take the price down from its $60 perch.

One of the best deals out right now is from Green Man Gaming. The retailer is offering 20% off the Fallout 4 Season Pass.

If you don’t want to buy the Season Pass, you can also buy all of these add-ons individually. Automatron is $10 on its own, Wasteland Workshop is $5, and Far Harbor is $25.

If you want to save on these, Green Man Gaming is offering deals on all three. We haven’t seen any price cuts at retailers like Amazon and GameStop.

Fallout 4 DLC Beta

If you weren’t selected for the Automatron beta, Wasteland Workshop beta or Far Harbor beta, don’t get down.

Bethesda will run betas for all of its upcoming Fallout 4 DLC and it will likely choose more names out of the hat.

Fallout-4-DLC-1

If you failed to signup for Bethesda’s Fallout 4 DLC beta, you’ll want to do that before the first beta arrives.

You can sign up right now on Bethesda.net. All you need is a registered account. From there, Bethesda will select applicants to test out the full versions of the upcoming DLC.

If you’re selected you’ll receive the full version of the DLC and you’ll be able to keep it once the beta ends as payment for your services.

11 Things to Know About the Fallout 4 Vault-Tec Workshop DLC

Fallout 4 Vault-Tec Workshop Problems & Update

Fallout 4 Vault-Tec Workshop Problems & Update

The Vault-Tec Workshop DLC is getting solid reviews but those playing the new content have run into problems.

While the Vault-Tec Workshop beta wiped out many of the problems plaguing the new DLC, issues slipped through the cracks. 

Some gamers are simply having problems downloading the Vault-Tec Workshop DLC. If you own it and you can't get it to work, close Fallout 4 and re-open it. We also recommend a hard reset of your system. 

We're also hearing about the usual array of texture problems, performance issues, random crashes, and various other bugs impacting the DLC and its features. 

Bethesda's outlined a few solutions for Vault-Tec Workshop problems and the company's rolled out a brand new Vault-Tec Workshop update to address lingering bugs.

The update is now available for Xbox One, PC and the PlayStation 4. It's 400MB+ in size and it brings several key fixes to the table. 

The update keeps the game at its current version. Here is the full list of fixes available for Xbox One, PC and PlayStation 4:

- Vault Exterior Door no longer has a missing texture if Wasteland Workshop is not installed
- NPCs will no longer incorrectly sit at the Vault Security Desk
- Vault-Tec Water Pump and starting generator now auto repair when entering workshop mode
- Player can no longer assign companions or Overseer Barstow using the population management system to prevent this from breaking them
- Vault-Tec population management system will no longer say jobs are available when is no one valid for job assignment available
- Vault Experiments can be scrapped in workshop mode
- Fixed issue with Overseer Barstow’s audio cutting out after Clem’s interview
- Interviewing the second settler candidate will not reset after the dialogue option take a break

If you are using an Xbox One or PC, the update will install automatically when you log online. If you're using Vault-Tec on a PS4, here's how to get the update.

This update wipes out many Vault-Tec Workshop issues but it doesn't tackle them all. While we wait for the next major Fallout 4 bug fix update for PS4, Xbox One and PC, please take a look at our list of fixes for common Fallout 4 problems and Bethesda's support forums for assistance.

You'll also want to report any bugs you see as you play the DLC. To do that, head here to submit a Vault-Tec Workshop bug via Bethesda's website.

    “400 hours either it’s that deep”

    Total BS. It is the most shallow release in Bethesda’s entire history. It is pure re-spawn trash, and is as disposable as Borderlands. While it can be diverting without mods, it is clear that Bethesda is about as creatively bankrupt as the so-called author of this click-bait.

      Agreed… It’s simply a re-skinned version of Fallout 3 with a few extras. Anyone who says otherwise is a blathering ninnyhammer. Couldn’t improve on the graphics in 8 years?!? Framerate loss on a console?!? If I had not purchased it as a bundle, I would have the buyers remorse.

            blog- you really don’t need a 700$ pc either to play either one:) i was playing on a 5 year old pc with a amd 1090t 8gb ram and and very old ati 5870. played gta 5 at 50 to 60fps on mem settings at 1080p and looked better than both consoles.

            Than i upgraded to a amd 8370×8 16gb of ram and a new board and a used 290x lightning for around 600-650 and i can play every game maxed out.

            i didn’t really need the 8370 cpu cause the 1090t did well and will work in a newer board. But im a overclock freak so needed the 8370.

            But yea don’t really need a power house of a pc to play today games.

            oh i also own every console except the xbox one. i just prefer the pc and use the consoles for exclusives.

        It’s not that they couldn’t improve the graphics, it’s that your shit console based on 2007’s tech isn’t capable of anything better than Fallout 3. They have to make it look like garbage just so it can run at 30fps and 720p on the Xboner and PSbore. Meanwhile, I’m humming along quite nicely with my last gen video card at 1080p on ultra at 70fps.

          Or maybe they shouldn’t make a game that current consoles can’t run. Consoles and PCs are just technology. If the computer can do more, then make different versions. Mass Effect (while not the same, it is a good comparison) had huge areas and ran without a hiccup on consoles.

          The good thing about consoles is it provides stability. The consoles don’t have better versions released every 5 minutes. Developers know what they can handle and don’t have to worry if most people’s devices can handle it. Computers are constantly being upgraded. Hard for developers to know what they should aim for (make it taxing, few can play). Your computer will be outdated very quickly. A game will be made that your computer can’t handle.

            I see all these hate comens about PC and just laugh at their ignorance, like braah (i dont say bruh).

            1st off NO, OK? NO!!! to the idiot that said “Or maybe they shouldn’t make a game that current consoles can’t run” GET DA FUDGE OUTTA HERE. Seroiusly why do people want to slow down technological advancement?

            Which brings us to point #2. to THE IDIOT THAT SAID “Your computer will be outdated very quickly, there will be a game your computer can’t handle”, you are correct, but if the game outdated the PC then it probably outdated the console AGES ago aswell IDIOT,I thought you were saying they shouldn’t make games that can’t be handled???? what happened to that HUH!!???

            #3. Consoles provide more stability but a great graphical cost, if you compare to a pc running at same specs, then the pc has a lot more stability. In other words, NO consoles do not provide more stability then PC.

            #4. NOT hard for developers, they should just simply aim for the highest posible, simple as that, just everybody aim really high. It becomes an issue once you introduce consoles into the mix, because CONSOLES ARE THE ONES OUTDATED, meaning devs, have to compromise on SO MANY things.

            Which brings us to #5. Different versions of a game ARE made, but only some devs do this, because they don’t want to compromise, and they shouldn’t, so they make dedicated PC versions. Such was the case with GTA 5, I played it in ps3, xbox360, ps4, xboxOne, and PC. I will tell you this, Play station was always better xbox sucked, a PC of equal value (without windows, cause console makers dont charge for OS) and PC destroyed. this was though with used parts, there is no way you can make a PC to surpass “new” gen consoles for the same price buying new parts.

            This is why consoles hold the market, THEY ARE CHEAP, its only 1 model, meaning cheap manufacturing of all parts, cheap replacements due to how common they are, and a simple OS that almost doesn’t need updating (no people developing new software means less money spent).

            PCs are better then consoles because of their flexibility, IF devs are aiming for the highest quality then we would need to upgrade our hardware each year, and that is just as easy as plugging something in the PC.
            A solution would be that just like Iphones and Samsung Galaxys console manufacturers such as Sony and Microsoft would release a new PS4 and XboxOne every year, if not then maybe every 2 years, but as explained above (why consoles are cheap), thats just not the case, its not profitable, they would have to raise the price so high up, that PC would be cheaper and at that point why would you even buy console? am I right?

            Also money wouldn’t be wasted on devs trying to port a game to Xbox and Play Station, instead they should do what some manufactures do, such as Dell with their Alienware brand, because as we all know, not everyone knows how to swap a hard drive or a graphics card. So there are manufacturers out there that charge a premium for prebuilt gaming systems. If Sony and Microsoft changed to this And offered variety, and flexybility by taking on the prebuilt Pc market and incorporating their own easily upgradeable models, they would be appealing to the mass consumer (console trash) AND the Master PC race, because as explained above games are not always developed for both PC and console, sometimes only console and are ported to be ‘playable’ on PC such is the case with GTA 4. BUT if devs only developed for PC then every game would be at their max.

            Also ONE MORE THING: PCs dont get outdated as fast as consoles, the only reason consoles last longer in because devs are doing their almighty to the game so it can be ‘playable’. PCs on the other hand, devs doing their best and maxing a games capacity, PC will last a good 4 years until you need to upgrade something, whereas console barely lasts one year, this assuming a console can play a game at its max.

            PC WINS EVERY TIME NO ARGUMENT, SO STOP HATING JUST CAUSE YOU CANT AFFORD A GAMING PC, OR DONT KNOW HOW TO BUILD ONE.

          I’d see your point except for the fact that Witcher runs like a dream and looks great on said consoles. Resolution and frame rate wasn’t the topic so much as the redundancy and the not so next gen graphics (which Witcher, Zero Horizon, and other games clearly proves exist.) When I started playing I felt barely any difference between it and Skyrim, which was beyond frustrating for the price.
