Fallout 4’s second add-on, Wasteland Workshop, makes the apocalypse warm, homely and filled with traps

Wasteland Workshop

Fallout 4 is expanding, like an engorged beast of quests, action points and quasi-comedic post-apocalypse depression. A new trailer details the second DLC pack, Wasteland Workshop. It upgrades the creation tools available within the game for building your perfect homebase in the desolate hellscape that used to be the USA. Not only are there more materials, you can also capture live creatures – be it the simple housecat, the towering Deathclaw or a human raider – and tame or fight them for fun and profit.

Spice things up ever-more with the best Fallout 4 mods available.

Complete with all-too-cheesy voice over, this two-minute rundown will get you read for the pack’s release on April 12.

There’s a real element of being a dungeon master here – building an intricate series of traps and monsters to foil intruders. I hope there’s an actual use for that, not much point in an incredible deathtrap of mind-bending proportion and megalomaniacal genius if nobody walks into it. Either way, keen builders will be happy with the vastly increased options for making a house into a home.

You’ll be able to get your grubby mitts – this is the apocalypse after all, no sinks – on Wasteland Workshop come April 12 on whichever platform you prefer. It’ll cost you $4.99 / £3.99 / €4.99. It’s the second of three announced DLCs, with the last being Far Harbor, a massive new area set outside the Commonwealth to explore coming in May. Bethesda also still have the official Creation Tools to launch, allowing for Fallout 4 mods that can be used on Xbox One and PS4, as well as hopefully expanding the possibilities on PC too.
