Here's Exactly When Fallout 4 Wasteland Workshop DLC Unlocks

Not much longer to wait.


Fallout 4's second expansion, Wasteland Workshop, is coming out on April 12 for PC, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4. But what time exactly will the content unlock? Bethesda today answered that question, saying the DLC will become officially available at 12 AM EST in North America and 12 AM local time throughout European territories.

As detailed previously, Wasteland Workshop allows players to build on their settlements with new elements such as cages they can use to capture creatures. You can choose to tame these beasts--everything from raiders to Deathclaws--or have them do battle against each other or your enemies.

Wasteland Workshop also adds a "suite of new design options" for settlements, including nixie tube lighting, letter kits, and taxidermy, among other things. You can see some of this content in the new trailer above.

Fallout 4's first expansion was Automatron, which arrived in March. Following Wasteland Workshop will be Far Harbor ($25), which comes out in May. It is set in a post-apocalyptic version of Bar Harbor, Maine, and represents the largest landmass Bethesda has ever created for add-on content.

April 12 is shaping up to be a busy day for gaming. In addition to Wasteland Workshop, that's the date when major updates arrive for Destiny and The Division; it's also the launch date for Dark Souls III (in the west) and Ratchet & Clank.
