7.5 / 10.0

Automatron is a fun piece of DLC that expands Fallout 4 in some interesting ways, applying the sort of customization previously reserved for settlements to your traveling companions. The results are satisfying. The story mode is brief, the narrative is mundane, and sadly the all-too-familiar Fallout 4 bugs are still hanging around, but the overall experience is rewarding, imaginative, and a pleasure to play.

Functional, yet prosaic. Constructing robots is a highlight, but Automatron's quest is short and unremarkable.

No Recommendation / Blank

The opportunity to revive Robot Wars in the wasteland makes up for some inessential new missions and a brief runtime.

Not a particularly auspicious start to Fallout 4’s season pass, but the chance to build your own robots is at least more interesting than the new story.
