Fallout 4 Vault-Tec Workshop DLC – Great

The Fallout 4 Vault-Tec Workshop DLC is an add on for the game and adds a new location to the game along with a reasonably good quest line.

The first thing to note is that Vault 88 (the new location) is guarded by some fairly strong raiders and is in a difficult section of the map. This is a bit annoying for accessibility as the raiders can respawn or be drawn in from nearby areas meaning it isn’t nice to try and reach.

Vault 88 itself is a large cave and tunnel system giving plenty of space to explore which houses many enemies such as Ghouls, Mirelurks, Mole Rats, Deathclaws, Radscorpions and Sentry Bots. This keeps it interesting and ensures the area isn’t just for construction.

As for the quest line that comes in the DLC, Overseer Barstow who is a Ghoul survivor of the atomic war wants to get the vault into full working order and has instructions to perform experiments on some unlucky vault dwellers. The player has to interview potential subjects for testing, choose some parameters for the experiments and go on missions to gather what is needed for the entertaining bits of inhumane mischief.

There were times in the main game where the construction system felt as if it dominated too much but this DLC does it right and gives a nice little quest line as well. A strong improvement to the game adding items as well. Season pass holders who felt ripped off at construction DLC being a part of the price may be happier about this DLC than they are about other construction focused ones. For what it is, this is great.


The art that I’m using as the featured image was found on the marketplace section of the Xbox website. It shows a woman wearing a vault suit and holding a hammer that looks a bit like the in game Super Sledge weapon. Hammers for construction and a woman because that’s how things get advertised in real life, a nice little joke. Good artwork considering Vault-Tec is a company within the game and this would be their advertising poster were they real.
