Automaton is included with the $50 Fallout 4 DLC pass or it can be purchased by itself for $10. The expansion centers on a character called the Mechanist who has unleashed a horde of malevolent robots into the Commonwealth. Players will be able to hunt down robots and harvest parts to build their own custom robot companions.

Following Automatron will be at least two further expansions, including Wasteland Workshop (April; $5) and Far Harbor (May; $25). Fallout 4's Creation Kit is also scheduled to come out in April; some mods made using the toolsuite will come to console later, starting with Xbox One.
