— Official description

Wasteland Workshop is the second add-on for Fallout 4, developed and published by Bethesda Softworks.


Release and availability

Wasteland Workshop was released on April 12, 2016 for all consoles, and costs $4.99.


This add-on focuses on adding several more features to better facilitate the production and protection of one's settlement, such as building plots of ground for crops, and many more new traps and defenses. The add-on also features designing and building cages to capture live creatures, ranging from raiders to deathclaws. These creatures can then be tamed, or allowed to face off in battle, even against one's own settlers.

Other structures

A new division of settlement structures have also been added that can be built from concrete, including a wide variety of floors, walls, roofs, stairs, and railings. There are also two derelict buses models and a truck trailer that can be built and inhabited. They can potentially be used around the perimeter as part of the wall. Useful in making non-arable land and non-bare ground more productive, garden plots and powered water pumps have been added to the resource section of the settlement management menu, allowing food and water to be gathered from anywhere within the settlement. A high tier fusion generator that produces 100 power is available for players with Science! 4. There's also a decontamination arch that removes all radiation for free.

There also several new decorations, included wall mounts for every other creature not included in the base game, in addition to plate lettering and neon signs in a variety of colors. Several new light sources are also added.
