Fallout 4's first major piece of DLC, the robot-centric Automatron, adds some much-needed variety to the activities your Lone Survivor can take on while exploring the Commonwealth. A lot of the core game's quest lines feel really similar, requiring you to wipe out nests of raiders or opposing factions to further your progress with your chosen team. Automatron flips that on its ear: It's a self-contained, unique tale of revenge, during which you'll find some creative new weapons, workshops and probably my favorite companion in the game so far.

You can watch Justin and me play through some of Fallout 4: Automatron above, or hop in yourself — it's available now as part of the game's Season Pass, or as a stand-alone $9.99 download.
