The creepy, dilapidated amusement park has always been a solid setting for horror mixed with a bit of satire. It’s also the perfect setting for the latest Fallout 4 expansion, Nuka-World, coming August 30.

The trailer presents Nuka-World as a family-friendly destination owned by Nuka-Cola. Like many major theme parks it features multiple themed zones, including Galactic Zone, Kiddie Kingdom, and Dry Rock Gulch. Decaying animatronics, destroyed rides, and rampaging feral ghouls make the post-apocalyptic version a bit less family-friendly.

As the final DLC for Fallout 4, Nuka-World is also the most difficult. You can’t even enter until level 30. Nuka-World adds the usual array of new weapons, enemies, quests, and more. For more gameplay information, you can watch the archived live stream of Bethesda developers playing through the first hour.

Nuka-World mascots Cappy and Bottle also make an appearance in a new Fallout Shelter update. Fallout Shelter is the free to play app that lets you run your own vault full of survivors. It’s been frequently updated along with the main game. The 1.7 update adds lots of new quest types. Cappy and Bottle provide players with a reward after a special Nuka-World themed mission is completed.


Nuka-World is the last piece of DLC that’s included in the Fallout 4 Season Pass. It follows the Vault-Tec Workshop, Contraptions Workshop, Far Harbor, Wasteland Workshop, and Automatron content packs. If you’ve already purchased the Season Pass, you’ll gain access to Nuka-World on August 30. Otherwise you can purchase it separately for $20.

See some official shots of Nuka-World below. It’s a park with every minimum acceptable safety standard met!
