Here's Exactly When Fallout 4 Automatron Expansion Unlocks



Fallout 4

Fallout 4's first expansion, Automatron, arrives on March 22. Now, developer Bethesda Game Studios has announced exactly when the add-on will unlock around the world for Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC.

The release schedule is available below, as is another new screenshot for the robot-themed Automatron expansion. It showcases the add-on's customizable robots; the one on the left has a saw blade for a butt.

Fallout 4 Automatron DLC Release Schedule:

  • Xbox One: Midnight EST (North America); midnight locally (Europe).
  • PS4: Midnight locally (Europe); by 1 PM EST (North America)
  • PC: Midnight EST (North America); midnight locally (Europe)

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.

Ummm, so it is almost 4am on the 22nd, and no Automatron. Steam now says it comes out April 5th.

If you don't like the game or you're not interested in the DLC then keep it to yourself. Damn haters everywhere you go anymore. I'll be downloading this asap.

I'm starting to get bored of rolling with Cait. If I can build a companion I might do that. I really want more Settlement based DLC that isn't cosmetic stuff.

@Senor_Kami: So pick another companion. There are many.

Why does the PlayStation Store take so long?

Eh, possibly ill do another midnight launch play, but it does not seem all that worth it just for DLC

Wonder if there a level that you should be at to tackle this DLC? Or does it adjust to you...

@Triton: I think the new content starts at lvl 15, but it will likely scale to you beyond that - Bethesda games always do scaling... kinda a shame but meh.

Level 15, according to Bethesda

@rashers: Your comment was hardly "educational", and no where near intelligent. You are the fool here kid.
