The first add-on release for Fallout 4, Automatron, has gotten a release date and an announcement trailer!
In Automatron, the infamous Mechanist has been ravaging the Commonwealth with his or her own army of evil robots, which includes the nefarious Robobrain. It’s up to the Sole Survivor to hunt down and stop these rampaging robos and use the harvested parts in order to build their own customized robot companions.
Players will be able to choose from hundreds of different mods as they build their robots, allowing for customization of limbs, armor, abilities, and even new weapons such as the lightning chain gun. For characters level 15 and higher, players will even be able to customize paint schemes and the robots’ voices.
Automatron is just the beginning for add-ons to come for Fallout 4. In April, Wasteland Workshop will allow for greater improvements on the capabilities of settlements, and in May, players will be able to travel all the way to Maine for the Far Harbor DLC. Far Harbor also boasts to be the largest landmass Bethesda has ever created for post-release content.
Fallout 4 is expected to receive even more updates and additions as the year progresses, with free updates such as the Survival Mode and Creation Kit, which will allow creative players to create mods on the PC and then share them across all platforms.
Automatron will be available for download for PC, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4 on March 22nd
