Fallout 4: how to find, install and access the Nuka-World DLC

Fallout 4: Nuka-World is here. But how do you get it?


Fallout 4: Nuka-World won’t automatically download on your console, even if you have the season pass – which might be a good thing if you’re on a tight data limit, as it’s the biggest one yet in terms of new content. File size-wise, it’s 5.3 GB on PS4.

The DLC is rolling out right now so if you own Fallout 4 you can go ahead and kick off the download and installation process. The pack is included in the Season Pass, or can be purchased separately – that’s obviously another requirement for playing it.

Here’s how to get hold of Nuka-World and ensure Fallout 4 recognises your license:

  • Make sure you have the most recent patch.
  • Find the DLC. On Steam and Xbox Live, check out the Fallout 4 store page. On PSN, the easiest way is to type “Fallout” into the search field, and you’ll see Nuka World listed in the suggested results. Purchase if necessary, and begin the download.
  • Once installed, fire up Fallout 4 and check the “add-ons” section of the main menu. If Nuka-World is not listed, try restarting your system and checking your connection.

To begin the Fallout 4: Nuka-World storyline, look for the quest All Aboard in your journal, which prompts you to tune to a new radio frequency. We found this quest triggered as soon as we loaded up a mid or late game save.

Fallout 4: Nuka-World is the final piece of DLC for Fallout 4, as Bethesda is moving on to other major projects. Fair enough – but also, aww. Good thing we’ll have mods to keep us busy after this.
