Ada is just one of the customizable robots in the new content.
As we get closer to Fallout 4‘s release of its first DLC, dubbed Automatron we’re getting some new information about the content. Earlier this month we got to see the first trailer featuring the kinds of things we can expect to see when this downloadable content launches. The announcement and first picture of Ada came through Bethesda’s Twitter account and is supposedly just one of the customizable robots you can encounter and bend to your will.
For those that don’t know, the story of Automatron has you attempting to chase down the evil genius, The Machinist. The character was first introduced in the main game during the Silver Shroud mission. As you look for The Machinist you will run across his minions and you’ll be able to salvage scrap from these robots. Once you’ve got enough scrap you can fashion your own mechanized companions. Robot armor, arms and legs, abilities, voices, and paint schemes can all be picked up and changed throughout the DLC.
Making robot companions isn’t the only new addition in Automatron. There is also a new weapon called the lightning chain gun. Though you’ll need to hit level 15 in order to get your hands on the gun and you’ll have to hit that level in order to just play the new content. Shortly after this DLC is released, it will be followed by Wasteland Workshop and then in May you’ll be able to get your hands on the biggest DLC for Fallout 4. Far Harbor will be added to the already impressive map for Fallout 4.
