It's always annoyed me that raiders in the Fallout universe attack on sight. No matter the situation, even if you're dressed head-to-toe in their rusty armour, even if I'm essentially playing the game as raider – or at the very least a raider type of character—their only reaction to me is to immediately open fire and try to kill you. Rushing into combat against everyone you meet is a terrible way to make friends. I'm stupidly angry, too, guys. Why can't I join your little cult?
All will change with Fallout 4's upcoming Nuka-World DLC. The Steam store page is now live, and here's what the description reads
Take a trip to Nuka-World, a vast amusement park now a lawless city of Raiders. Explore an all-new region with an open wasteland and park zones like Safari Adventure, Dry Rock Gulch, Kiddie Kingdom, and the Galactic Zone. Lead lethal gangs of Raiders and use them to conquer settlements, bending the Commonwealth to your will.
Reading this description makes my inner raider very happy! My dreams of running and gunning my way through the Common Wealth will come true and i can finally have real raider pals to help with my fight! Now im wondering if it'll be contained to the new region or spread game-wide, so I can be a raider all over the damn place and kill whoever gets in my way. Maybe I can even attack all those settlements I spent hours and hours building.
The price for Nuka-World is revealed to be $20, though it's included in the Season Pass if you bought one like I did before the price increase. We're told it's due out in August (though the steam page says July, which I believe is an error). The Contraptions Workshop (coming June 21) and Vault-Tec Workshop (July) are also up as part of the Season Pass, or they can be bought individually for $5 each.
