Fallout 4 Automatron Launching March 22nd on PS4

Matt Grandstaff's Avatar Posted by Global Community Lead, Bethesda Softworks

Fallout 4’s first add-on, Automatron, is coming to PS4 on March 22nd, and we’re excited to let you preview the new content with an all-new trailer!

The mysterious Mechanist has unleashed a horde of evil robots into the Commonwealth, including the devious Robobrain. Hunt them down and harvest their parts to build and mod your own custom robot companions. Choose from hundreds of mods — mixing limbs, armor, abilities and weapons, like the all-new lightning chain gun. You can even customize their paint schemes and choose their voices. (For characters level 15 or higher.)

In April, we’re expanding the capabilities of settlements with the second add-on, Wasteland Workshop, and in May, travel beyond the Commonwealth to Maine for Far Harbor — the largest landmass Bethesda Game Studios has ever created for post-release content.

And that’s just the beginning, with even more add-ons coming later in 2016. Stay tuned for more details on free updates like Survival Mode and the Creation Kit, which will allow you to create mods on the PC and then share and play them across all platforms, including PS4.

This week a select group of PS4 players will be receiving invites to beta test Automatron. If you registered for the beta through, keep an eye on your inbox this week to see if you got in.

I need this beta considering an huge fallout fan I’ve been. And the controversial season pass price hijack.

Mods on PS4? VERY interested to see that.

You guys (Bethesda) have come a long way as a console developer since the PS3 days. I’m excited to see where you go!

I never got the season pass and then with the price hike I figure I won’t be getting any add-ons until someone runs a sale on the season pass for the original price, or lower, or else I will wait to see if a game of the year edition gets released a year or two down the road and pick that up on sale for cheaper than all the dlc content together. Thats what I did for 3 and NV. DLC packs are just not worth the amount companies are charging for them IMHO. Full game for $60 and DLC content for $50? better be close to as much content as the entire original game…….which I just cant see happening.

Oh, man. I can’t wait to see what kind of new weapons and armor are coming with the Automatron DLC. As soon as this launches, I’m starting my Mechanist playthrough build.

What in the 9 realms is going on at sony why if I am not mistaken is the dlc getting held back a day on ps4.
I already have so many regrets about buying fallout 4 on ps4 but this is just lame. NEVER AGAIN sony never again

    Just because you are eager does not make them jerks.

    @PredeKing – Jerks? No.
    But at 230pm Eastern, the DLC still not being available makes it apparent that someone really dropped the ball.

    I’m not going to throw a fit about it (I WANT to – I feel like crap on a beautiful day and was hoping that destroying and modding a bunch of bots would do something to help), but I won’t. It wouldn’t do any good, anyway.

    This is pretty suboptimal, though.

    If you’re in the US, someone fouled something up and it’s been delayed on our end.

    Someone a bit further down said that thry called and got a 5pm Eastern estimate.

Sony, you are now more than two hours late with the release. At least two hours late with being able to download it that is. Just a heads up, if you want business than stick to your release schedule.

Release it, then debug it. The add on is already released around the world.

I am slowly switching everything over to my xbox 1 with a 4tb Seagate netbook, it is going to be YEARS before I have to delete a game!

Ok the dlc finally made it to us. FYI, if you download it, install it and it still doesn’t show up in add ons just restart your ps4 and it should be there.
