Video game publisher and developer Bethesda releases the official trailer for Fallout 4‘s Nuka World DLC and reveals the post-apocalyptic RPG expansion’s release date.
In order to get Fallout 4 fans ready to book their Wasteland vacation to Nuka World, Bethesda has announced that the forthcoming expansion is going to be available for PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One at the end of this month on August 30, 2016. Not to mention, the studio has put out a brand new trailer that shows off some of the contents of what is to be the sixth and last piece of DLC, featuring the title’s tongue-in-cheek humor by way of a cheerful family-friendly song for the now defunct tourist destination being sung over footage of the dilapidated park, multi-colored Ghouls, new mutated creatures, and more.
As seen in the trailer below, Fallout 4 fans can get a pretty good gander at what Nuka World has to offer, with the video giving glimpses of the region’s divided areas of Nuka-Town USA, Safari Adventure, the World of Refreshment, Dry Rock Gulch, Kiddie Kingdom, and Galactic Zone. Not to mention, Bethesda made sure to put in looks at new weapons such as the Electrified Paddle Ball, freshly designed beasts like a bipedal lizard monster, and even a fully-functioning roller coaster.
On top of all of the assets mentioned so far, Bethesda has also injected Nuka World with new power armor, new workshop options, and the ability to let the Sole Survivor become an evil Raider. For those wondering, the studio has managed to make the forthcoming DLC the largest add-on of the game’s post-launch materials, with its file size roughly a gigabyte bigger than the Far Harbor expansion that was made available earlier this year.
Fallout 4 players who haven’t already purchased the open world release’s Season Pass can obtain Nuka World on its own for $20. With that being the case, if fans consider that to be too pricey for a standalone add-on, they can always go all-in on every bit of the title’s DLC by spending $50 for the Season Pass, which effectively reduces the cost of each expansion slightly by bundling them all together. Of course, there’s also a high possibility of Bethesda releasing a Game of the Year Edition that will contain the base game and all of the DLC soon after the launch of Nuka Cola, so gamers could save up their bottle caps in anticipation for the currently unannounced compendium.
As far as what’s officially planned beyond the release of Nuka World, though, Bethesda still has mod support for PS4 in development after it was forced to delay the feature back in June due to memory issues, poor sound quality, and problems with stability within Fallout 4. While it’s possible for the studio to somehow make PlayStation 4 mods operable before Fallout 4‘s Nuka World drops in a little more than two weeks, it’s best for folks to not hold their breath.
