Fallout 4 will welcome its sixth and final expansion next week the decrepit theme park-set Nuka-World which developer Bethesda will demo during a livestream tomorrow.

Announced via the game s Twitter feed, the stream will be hosted on Bethesda s Twitch channel at 9pm BST/4pm ET/1pm PT, and will explore the new DLC that s expected to challenge previous add-on Far Harbour in size.

Chris seemed to enjoy his time there when he got to grips with it back in May, however wasn t too enamoured by Vault-Tec Workshop nor Wasteland Workshop saying he found it difficult to recommend the latter, even at just $5. With new quests, new zones, new weapons, and the chance to assume the role of a commanding Raider, here s hoping Nuka-World takes Far Harbour s lead.

It ll cost 14.99/$19.99 when it arrives on August 30 but in the meantime here's another look at Nuka-World s official trailer:

I cannot in good conscience be seen to apparently promote the number one game, so here's Captain Blood instead.

Hullo! One day later than usual because I spent yesterday on a beach next to an industrial estate, but as always, here’s what sold best on Steam last week. It is ever so faintly possible that you might have a very slight inkling as to what is number one. I could not possibly comment myself.

Level design has a lot in common with theme park design. They use similar tricks to guide and lure visitors, tell stories with the world, reward visitors, conceal flaws and boundaries, reveal surprises… heck, go watch Scott Rogers’ GDC talk Everything I Learned About Level Design I Learned from Disneyland. But what has Fallout 4 [official site] learned from Disneyland about building an actual theme park? We’ll see on August 30th, as Bethesda have announced that’s when the Nuka World expansion will launch with a new fizzypop Disneyland copycat. Have a look in this new trailer:

Fallout 4 s sixth and last add-on, Nuka-World, is gearing up for its August 30 release with the launch of its latest gameplay trailer. Taking a typically tongue-in-cheek, pseudo tourist video look at its new locale, the following cinematic explores the titular Nuka-World a once thriving amusement park-now-Raider-run city that ll having us exploring an all-new region with a wasteland and park zones, so says the game s Steam page blurb.

Areas such as Safari Adventure, Dry Rock Gulch, Kiddie Kingdom, and the Galactic Zone are some of the zones that fill the decrepit theme park, all of which feature above against a horrifyingly catchy It s A Small World After All-esque backing track. Truth be told, the music scares me just as much as the park's resident Ghouls and Deathclaws.

Having spent a bit of time tinkering with/being frustrated by both of Fallout 4's Wasteland Workshop and Vault-Tec Workshop DLC packs, Christopher is looking forward to siding with and commanding Raiders this time round, not to mention diving into its new missions and messing around with its new weapons. Make that two of us.

Fallout 4 s Nuka-World DLC is due August 30, and will cost 14.99/$19.99.

Last week’s best-sellers, today. Most of the recent mainstays are still hanging on in there, but it’s goodbye to Dead by Daylight (for now, at least). We do get two intriguing new entries, one glowering and one that is ALL THE FISH. Number one, meanwhile, is probably the number one you expected. That’s right: Limbo of the Lost is back-back-back!

That's Marcy Long up there, who you'll remember from the opening of Fallout 4. She's the grumpy/angry one with good reason! at the town of Sanctuary, and along with her miserable husband Jun, they were kind of a downer every time you headed back to the starting area. The internet seems to have decided that she's the worst character in the game absolute madness in a game featuring the embarrassing Mama Murphy and, as such, the internet will probably be very pleased with a new update for Fallout 4, which lets players murder both her and her husband Jun.

As Shack News reports, update 1.7 live now on Steam removes the immortality tag from Jun and Marcy Long, providing you've completed the early 'Sanctuary' quest. Other fixes/changes include "improvements to accuracy and control with picking up and placing objects" outside of Workshop mode, and the ability for vendors to offer "large shipments of Ceramic, Copper, Rubber, Steel and Wood". You can find the full patch notes here.
