Yes indeed, it turns out the latest addition in what's quickly becoming an irritable string of incessant Fallout 4 add-ons allows players to capture, then pit monsters up against one another in a gladiatorial arena.

That's pretty much all there is to get amped about here though; and if we're being entirely honest, this should've been included as part of the original game! Kind of a dickish move on Beth's part to require us to download another DLC to build walls and roofs freed from the perils of having holes in 'em.

Plus, there's the whole Preston Garvey surviving bit...



Like, seriously, man? At least the Automatron add-on spawned strangely transfixing creations like this though:

When Bethesda announced the surprise release of mobile, free to play game Fallout Shelter last June, they only released it for the iOS crowd, leaving Android smartphone users out in the wasteland.

Well that all ends Aug. 13, as the resource management/time sink/very addictive game comes to all devices running Android 4.1 and up.

It is updated with the most recent bug fixes and content and does not even pretend to apologize for all the time and money it will take from your life. There are far, far worse ways to wait for the Nov. 10 release of Fallout 4.

You can get it from the Google Play Store here.

Knowing that we are salivating for more Fallout 4 news in lieu of it's Nov. 1 release, developer Bethesda dropped some more information about what comes after that fateful launch on their company blog.

It's not really any big surprise that there will be DLC or that they will offer a season pass, but it's still neat to know.

We've always done a lot of DLC for our games. We love making them and you always ask us for more. To reward our most loyal fans, this time we'll be offering a Season Pass that will get you all of the Fallout 4 DLC we ever do for just $30. Since we're still hard at work on the game, we don't know what the actual DLC will be yet, but it will start coming early next year. Based on what we did for Oblivion, Fallout 3, and Skyrim, we know that it will be worth at least $40, and if we do more, you'll get it all with the Season Pass.



They also discussed how the original game would continue to evolve.

We'll be doing regular free updates to the game, and like Skyrim, these will come with not just fixes, but new features. For Skyrim we added things like mounted combat, legendary mode, kill cams, visual enhancements and more. We'll work with all of you to figure out what new things you'd love to see added to Fallout 4, whether they are small tweaks or new features.
