Video Review


The vast majority of the mods are of the aesthetic variety. Just about any animal can be stuffed and mounted, from deathclaws and yao guai on down to humble molerats and radroaches. Lettered signs and neon lighting can spell out words to your heart’s content. Nixie tubes, campfires, and other light sources are available. New walls, doors, and floors are in the mix, mostly of the concrete variety. Much of it is kind of blasé, and only useful for players who are super interested in settlement crafting.

Audio Review


As there is no story component in 'Wasteland Workshop', and the creatures use the same assets as they always have, very little audio has been added - just electronic effects for the gadgets.

Final Thoughts

'Wasteland Workshop' seems more like free update material, or additions that would have come naturally if mod support was a thing. As it stands, it’s a mix of unwieldy creature traps, mildly novel base building objects, and a few handy doodads. We’ll keep our fingers crossed for next month’s 'Far Harbor'.
