Today Bethesda has released an official trailer for the first upcoming DLC campaigns for Fallout 4, which showcases some of the new gameplay features of robot customization.
Titled Automatron, the short trailer shows off our wastelander faced with a series of deadly robot attacks, from a mysterious antagonist known as the Mechanist. From the narration of a unknown robot ally, it is clear that the robot attacks pose a threat to the commonwealth hinting at the possibility of robot attacks for settlements across the wasteland.
As told in previous announcements, Automatron is said to feature custom robot companions in which players can provide tweaks to both armor, weapons, abilities and voices. Within the trailer, we get a brief look into the types of creations players will be able create, including a custom pink ‘Mr Handy’ with legs.
Automatron is the first of three game add-ons currently planned for the Fallout 4 season pass. In April, Bethesda plans to launch the Wasteland Workshop, which aims to expand upon the existing design elements for settlement construction, and provide players the opportunity to capture and tame wasteland creatures (yes, even Deathclaws).
In May, Bethesda will release Far Harbor, which will allow for players to travel to the coast of Maine, in search of a woman and a secret colony of synths. Bethesda said that Far Harbor is to feature a new landmass, new faction quests, settlements and weapons.
Fallout 4: Automatron will be available for download on March 22nd for Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC. In the meantime, be sure to check our full review for Fallout 4 before the DLC comes out.
