As players prepare to return to the wasteland next month, the first achievements from the hotly anticipated Automatron DLC for Fallout 4 are leaked to the Internet.
Next month, Bethesda will release the first piece of DLC for Fallout 4, the robot-centric Automatron. As a result, preparatory work is already going on behind the scenes — and that’s caused a leak of some achievements set to be patched into the game when the content becomes available.
While there’s a sizeable amount of DLC already scheduled for Fallout 4, this information only pertains to the Automatron package. Based on the details to hand, we now know that at least three quests will be included in the first content drop, which should warrant its price tag of $9.99.
Three achievements are offered up for completing quests named Headhunting, Mechanical Menace and Restoring Order. Even though they’re completely non-specific, they certainly fit the theme of robots gone amok that Bethesda’s announcement of Automatron seemed to suggest.
The other two achievements are more specifically focussed on side content, in particular the ability to construct robots that’s introduced as part of the DLC. Not much has been said about how this mechanic will work, but it’s likely to be a different twist on the crafting and creation gameplay that’s already present in Fallout 4.
Players can earn an achievement labelled Robot Hunter for unlocking 10 Robot Mods. Building 10 Robot Mods will then pop an achievement referred to as The Most Toys. Depending on how difficult it is to gather the necessary materials to do so, this may well be the most difficult plaudit to earn in the Automatron package.
If nothing else, these leaked achievements should give players on the fence about the game’s DLC some insight into what’s being offered up. Three quests and the seemingly meaty robot construction gameplay seems like a fair prospect, especially since there’s probably some other content that’s not represented with achievements.
Given that Automatron is set to be on the cheaper end of the DLC scheduled to release in support of Fallout 4, this certainly bodes well for the immediate future of the game. That being said, it’s still unclear whether players should buy the season pass while it’s being offered at a lower price.
Despite being teased for a long time, it’s only recently that Bethesda has shared any concrete details on its DLC schedule for Fallout 4. At this point, it’s a question of whether players are willing to put their trust in the company to save a few dollars — or if prior experience with other studios has soured them on season passes altogether.
Fallout 4 is available now for PS4, Xbox One and PC. The Automatron DLC is set to release in March.
