This is Gaming Cypher’s PS4 review for Fallout 4’s newest DLC, Wasteland Workshop by Bethesda.
The first thing that I noticed about the Wasteland Workshop DLC is that it did not take very long to load and so it appears to be a smaller add-on, unlike the first DLC, Automatron, which released last month.
The primary focus of the Wasteland Workshop DLC is that it concentrates on the settlement building section of Fallout 4. We really appreciated the many new add-on features such as structures, decorations, lights, generators, traps, resources (water, electricity) and much more. There are even neat miscellaneous items such as a neon lettering, cat bowl, bus, trailer truck, and oil lamp post.
We also enjoyed the ability to trap creatures from across the Wasteland Workshop environment and then having the ability to tame them. You will need a generator, the necessary materials to build a trap and basically just leave it out there until a creature gets trapped. Once tamed, you can use some creatures for your defense. You will also be able to build arenas, but make sure that you have loads of concrete.
Three new achievements and trophies have been added to the DLC:
- Docile – you will need to tame five creatures in your settlement
- Instigator – you will need to start a Spectated Arena Fight in your settlement
- Trapper – you will need to build at least one of every cage type

Overall, we appreciated the new Fallout 4 DLC, Wasteland Workshop. It was a lot of fun and a lot to do for the PlayStation 4 version. For this reason, I rate the DLC as an 8.5/10.
Fallout 4’s second add-on, Wasteland Workshop, is now available for Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC for $4.99.
