Automatron is the first DLC for Fallout 4, a sandbox RPG for PC, PS4 and XONE and other platforms. The PC, PS4 and XONE version was developed by Bethesda studio, just like the vanilla game.
Automatron introduces a new storyline connected to the mysterious Mechanist. The villain unleashed an army or hostile robots, headed by the cunning machines known as the Robobrains, upon the Commonwealth. The player’s task is to neutralize the new threat.
For the developers, the introduction of a previously unknown danger created an opportunity to expand on some of the gameplay mechanics. Eliminating the Mechanist’s robots, the players gather parts which can then be used for constructing and upgrading their own mechanical henchmen that accompany them while wandering the wasteland. There are a myriad of components available—including unique weapons, armor, and others—that allow us to build robots that suit our personal needs. The machines can also be customized by changing their painting patterns and even voices.
