Get ready, Vault dwellers, because Bethesda is unleashing Automatron, the first Fallout 4?s DLC pack which will be released ?next Tuesday, March 22. To whet fans appetites? for its impending release, Bethesda has unveiled a new gameplay trailer filled with robotic mayhem.
Fallout 4 Automatron First Look
Fallout 4 Automatron DLC will pit players against a new foe called The Mechanist. Here?s the official synopsis of the expansion:
?In Automatron, the mysterious Mechanist has unleashed a horde of evil robots into the Commonwealth, including the devious Robobrain. Hunt them down and harvest their parts to build and mod your own custom robot companions. Choose from hundreds of mods; mixing limbs, armor, abilities, and weapons such as the all-new lightning chain gun. Even customize their paint schemes and choose their voices!?
As stated, the Fallout 4 Automatron DLC will have a huge emphasis on robot customization. Anyone who installs Automatron will see powerful new robots roaming the Commonwealth wasteland. It?s up to the player to hunt and take down these deadly foes in order to use their remains to build a robot companion of their own. From the trailer alone, we can already see that Bethesda went all out on the customization aspect, with dozens of different robot configurations available.
Automatron retails for $9.99 individually or $49.99 as part of Bethesda?s expanded Season Pass. Gamers who purchased the Season Pass at the original $29.99 price point before the March 1 price hike will receive Automatron and all succeeding DLCs. These include April?s Wasteland Workshop pack, May?s expansive story add-on Far Harbor, and several yet-to-be-announced DLCs.
