With Fallout 4's final DLC "Nuka-World" just around the corner, Bethesda has decided to give everyone a glimpse at the sort of gameplay only an expansion situated in a post-apocalyptic amusement park can provide.

To be more specific, the hour-long developer preview covers the introduction, some of the weapons you'll get to toy around with, and a couple of other aspects of Nuka-World's early-game. If you're someone like me and you hate spoilers with a passion, worry not as the two hosts go out of their way to avoid some of the more sensitive bits, though you're still watching a preview so... be warned, I guess. Here's the video:


Much like Far Harbor, one of the previous DLC packs, Nuka-World seems to be both fully fleshed out and actually interesting. Most importantly, it appears to offer a genuine challenge given how often the developers struggled through their own creation. Whether that's purely due to their issues with aiming or if the DLC itself is hardcore, its too early to tell, but some of the enemies are pretty nicely designed so I wouldn't be surprised if I end up kicking the bucket numerous times throughout my playthrough.

Speaking of which, if you would like to try your hand at fighting those Metroid-like... things, Nuka-World will be arriving on August 30th. As for the price, its a rather hefty €19,99 / $19,99, so I would advise waiting for reviews before you jump in, though given Bethesda's track record with Fallout 4 DLCs, this one should be pretty good.
