Here's Exactly When Fallout 4's Next DLC Unlocks

Contraptions Workshop adds things like conveyor belts, scaffolding kits, track kits, and logic gates.


Announced last week at E3 2016, Fallout 4's Contraptions Workshop DLC will launch tonight, June 21, at midnight in North America EDT and across European territories at midnight local time, Bethesda has announced.

As its name suggests, Contraptions Workshop is themed around Fallout 4's Workshop tools that players can use to build settlements. New for Contraptions are things like conveyor belts, scaffolding kits, track kits, and logic gates. Also included are elevators, armor racks, and fireworks, as well as greenhouse and warehouse kits.

Contraptions Workshop is the fourth paid add-on overall, and the second one for the Workshop, following the release of Wasteland Workshop back in April. Like that one, Contraptions Workshop is priced at $5 across PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. If you already bought the Fallout 4 Season Pass, you will also get the new add-on without needing to pay more.

Following Contraptions Workshop will be two further Fallout 4 add-ons, Vault-Tec Workshop ($5/July 2016) and Nuka World ($20/August 2016). These expansions are also included with the Fallout Season Pass. Nuka World will be the game's final add-on, though players can make use of mods (on PC and console) to continually try new things.

Mods came to the Xbox One version of Fallout 4 in May and are scheduled to arrive on PS4 this month. Recently, Bethesda acknowledged a number of issues with the PS4 beta version and is working with Sony to resolve them before the mod program is released for everyone.

Additionally, a VR version of Fallout 4 is in the works for HTC Vive. For more, check out GameSpot's preview from E3 2016.
