Wasteland heroes in Fallout 4 will have new adventures to go on in the coming months.

At its press conference today ahead of this week’s high-profile Electronic Entertainment Expo tradeshow, Bethesda Games Studio showed new downloadable content (DLC) for its popular role-playing game. After briefly recapping the success of Fallout 4 (the developer shipped more than 12 million copies during the 2015 holiday season), creative director Todd Howard teased a new area that players can explore in the Commonwealth with a short video clip.

In August, Bethesda will release a new expansion featuring Nuka World, a theme park based on the ubiquitous soda pop brand found in the game. It’ll be the last story-based expansion for Fallout 4. Howard didn’t reveal anything more about the update.

In the meantime, fans can get their hands on the Contraptions Workshop DLC next week, which will allow them to build Rube Goldberg-style machines. And in July, players can make their own underground homes and conduct strange experiments on their vault dwellers with the Vault-Tec Workshop add-on.
