Fallout 4 developer, Bethesda, walks through the latest DLC, Vault-Tec Workshop. It's part of the season pass content, or it's $4.99 purchased separately.

In Vault-Tec Workshop, you're seated at the architectural table to draw out your very own vault plans.

Sorry, you can't just start excavating any old chunk of ground on the map. It takes place in Vault 88. Instead of just dropping a bunch of new tools in your tool bucket (like the Wasteland Workshop DLC or Contraptions Workshop DLC does), Vault-Tec Workshop's narrower focus allows for a lite mission-oriented setup. What is Vault 88? Why does it exist? Bethesda is taking this opportunity to build upon that story a little bit once it hands you the keys to the vault. And that story begins when you make your way toward Quincy Quarries and listen in on a radio frequency that pops up.

Vault 88 was in the process of starting vault construction, but something went wrong, halting progress. So, you'll start the DLC with several building resources automatically made available to you—that's even before you start scrapping the stuff laying around. It's nice that you'll be able to jump right in without having to go on a major scavenger hunt beforehand. There's a lot of clean, new, pre-war furniture a wall decor to fill up the place.

Not to spoil anything further, but the original vault director has plans to experiment on the vault dwellers. Should be fun.

Fallout 4: Vault-Tec Workshop is available today, July 26, on PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One. Fallout 4 itself launched in November of last year. We gave it our highest score.
