First it’s the Enclave Remnants.

“Enclave Remnants brings the Pre-War cabal, The Enclave, into the Fallout 4 storyline,” Bethesda says. “In this new quest, “Echoes of the Past,” can you stop The Enclave from spreading their dangerous ideology and gaining a foothold in the Commonwealth?”

On top of workshop items and the Enclave Colonel uniform, the following items are being added to the Creation Club:

  • Enclave Weapon Skins
  • Enclave Armor Skins
  • Tesla Cannon
  • Hellfire Power Armor
  • X-02 Power Armor
  • Heavy Incinerator

Aside from the Enclave pack, Bethesda is also adding a “makeshift weapon pack”.

“Ever thought a piggy bank would make a great weapon in a pinch?” the studio said. “This weapon pack includes a variety of unconventional objects that have been transformed into deadly weapons, such as: a baseball launcher, a nail gun and a piggy bank.”

Lastly, the Halloween workshop pack adds 38 new Halloween decorations to the game for your settlement.
