On 26 July, gamers all over the world will be able to step into one of the most coveted positions in the Fallout universe. That of a Vault-Tec Vault Overseer. With this dlc, players will be able to design and build their own vaults anywhere in the Commonwealth and perform experiments on unsuspecting settlers. Whether you’re a kindly overseer who would never harm your test subjects or an overseer who will torment them for results is up to you.
If you have a toon that is over level 20, you’ll hear a distress beacon, drawing you to Vault 88, where a bevy of fearsome raiders have lain siege to the Vault. Once you dispatch them, you will meet the Vault’s original overseer, a strange ghoul. She wants to continue where she left off with her vault mission, and that’s where you get drawn in. After interviewing plenty of potential new test sub…err…settlers, you’ll put them through some crazy experiments. How they turn out, for good or for bad, is all up to the choices you make
Choices have consequences in Fallout 4, and this is no different. Depending on yours during the experiments, the final version of the experimental object will change and become a permanent part of your crafting menu. Of course, if you’re not into experiments, you can always forgo the “rat in a cage” experience and just have fun building vaults in any settlement. The experimental objects will also be available in their basic form.
This DLC also adds lots of new items to the building menu, including clean versions of furniture and Barber and Surgeon chairs, letting you finally get a haircut and/or facelift in any settlement. The Vault-Tec DLC releases on 26 July 2016 and will cost US $4.99. Of course, if you prepurchased the Fallout 4 Season Pass, you’ll have immediate access.
