Automatron, the first paid expansion for Fallout 4, will be available tomorrow, March 22, on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC at midnight in most regions, but PS4 owners in North America will have to wait until 10am PT/1pm ET.

As revealed in a series of tweets by Bethesda, here’s when Automatron is expected to become available:

PlayStation 4

  • Europe – midnight local time
  • North America – 10am PT/1pm ET

Xbox One

  • Europe – midnight local time
  • North America – 12am ET



  • Europe – midnight local time
  • North America – 12am ET


When asked about the delayed release timing in North America, Bethesda replied, “This is when DLC deploys via PSN.” Pete Hines added that “1pm is what we were told.”

Season Pass owners will be able to download Automatron for free, while everyone else can grab it for $9.99 USD/€9.99/£7.99. Since the robots in the DLC are “geared to destroy you,” it’s only playable with a level 15 character or higher.
