Vault-Tec Workshop is going to be the new Fallout DLC. It will be released on Tuesday, July 26th, and it features a lot of awesome and fun new ways to spend time after the apocalypse. Bethesda live-streamed the announcement along with a brief presentation of what the new expansion will be all about.
The Fallout DLC and Vault 88
The expansion will start out with the protagonist receiving a radio signal. Following the signal will lead to the new area in the game, Vault 88. The vault, which coincidentally may or may not be the number chosen for a certain Shelter on a certain tablet, is going to initially be an abandoned location. An automated Overseer will be in charge of Vault 88, and she will ask you for help in regards to the completion of several experiments. GLaDOS, is that you?
While Bethesda has not said anything more than that about the actual questline, players expect it to be brief.
After finishing the miscellaneous length questline, Vault 88 will be the new playground where players will be able to try out making all sorts of neat stuff for their dwellings. While Vault 88 will be the main playground, players will be able to put their creations inside their Vault.
Other Nifty Features
The Fallout DLC is more than Vault 88, however. The Vault Population Management System is going to be new console. The system is pretty awesome, as it allows tracking companions and settlement inhabitants. The Vault Population Management System will also aid players in controlling the actions of inhabitants.
Vault-Tec Workshop is also bringing Vault construction pieces which will be easy to place and connect. Some of the rooms include Overseer offices, nurseries, generator rooms, and atriums. Rooms will be able to connect to a second floor through overhead walkways. Vault construction will, however, be limited and players will not be able to set up Vaults anywhere they choose.
Clean furniture will also be arriving to the Wasteland with the Fallout DLC. Players will be able to furnish their Vault with brand new comfortable looking beds, snazzy dressers, and a lot more. Bethesda also revealed some neat posters and signs.
Finally, the Fallout DLC improved the way players can see what expansion brought what items. The Vault Workshop has a gear icon, the Wasteland Workshop has a Deathclaw head icon, the Far Harbor has a boat icon, and the Contraptions Workshop has a factory building icon. Happy building!
