Fallout 4’s latest add-on, "Vault-Tec Workshop," has been released on PlayStation 4, Windows PC and Xbox One.

The downloadable content launched last night in most regions, but wasn't released until this morning for PS4 users in Europe. In the last update from publisher Bethesda Softworks’ support account on Twitter, which came at 9:22 p.m. ET yesterday, the company said it was "[continuing] to investigate" the situation. We’ve reached out to Bethesda for more details, and will update this article with any information we receive.

"Vault-Tec Workshop," which Bethesda announced at E3, gives Fallout 4 players the ability to build their own vault. The feature uses the settlement building functionality that the game launched with, albeit with prewar furniture, lighting and art. Once players have constructed a vault, they can fill it with vault dwellers — and then experiment on those people.

The DLC is available for $4.99 on its own, and is included with Fallout 4’s season pass. "Vault-Tec Workshop" is the fifth add-on for Fallout 4, following last month’s "Contraptions," which was the first DLC pack to be released outside the season pass’ original scope.

Update: A Bethesda Softworks representative told Polygon that "Vault-Tec Workshop" launched this morning for PS4 users in Europe. We've edited the article to reflect this.
