Fallout 4 - How to Start the Nuka-World DLC

Find out how to travel to Fallout 4's newest destination.


Fallout 4's latest DLC, Nuka-World, has finally hit the internet, and is ready for general consumption. If you're looking to jump right in to the festivities, sweat not, as we've taken the liberty of figuring out everything you'll need to do in order to get the new DLC started.

Like many of the other DLCs, Nuka World will require you to have at least a level 15 survivor, and be outside of Vault 111 before it shows up. After this point, the quest should spawn for players, allowing them to get it started right away.

The first thing you’ll have to do to start Nuka World, is head into your DATA tab in your Pip-boy and click on the quest: All Aboard. This will task you with listening to the Nuka-Cola Family Radio channel on your Pip-boy. Open up the Radio tab and click down to the channel. Listen for a few minutes, until the message resets, and your quest should update, tasking you with locating the Nuka-World Transit Center. You can find the transit center on your map by looking just south of Sanctuary, all the way on the edge of the map. Head to this area to continue the quest.

Just outside of the transit center, you’re bound to come across a group of soldiers. Take them out, or sneak around them, and make your way inside the actual building where the monorail is situated. Inside you’ll meet a man named Harvey. Talk to him to get a sad story about his family, and then take the Monorail to Nuka-World.

There are actually a few underlying situations that can mold how you enter Nuka-World, however, due to the nature of spoilers, we have decided to leave that information out. No matter how your conversation with Harvey goes, though, you’ll still be able to enter the new DLC region, which can be done by activating and riding the monorail out of the Commonwealth.

Once you arrive inside Nuka-World, you’ll actually have to complete the quest line Taken for a Run, after which you will be able to freely explore the theme park, and continue on the DLC storyline.
