For this we referenced Bethesda’s own how to on the topic, giving players on PS4, Xbox One, and PC hints as to how to download and install the Fallout 4 Automatron DLC. The steps are pretty easy, but there have been problems along the way that give some players a lot of trouble.
If you are playing Fallout 4 Automatron on PC via Steam then do the following: Log in to your Steam account. Navigate to Library. Right-click on Fallout 4. Select View Downloadable Content. Ensure the Install checkbox is enabled for the Automatron DLC to begin the download. Note: you may need to uncheck and the re-check the box to ensure the download begins. This last bit is important, as I had to do it for both the Automatron DLC and the Fallout 4 Season Pass.
If you are playing Fallout 4 Automatron on Xbox One then do the following: From the Home screen, hold [RT] and press [A] to navigate to the My games and apps menu. Navigate to Fallout 4 and press [Menu]. Select Manage game. From the Ready to install column, select the Automatron add-on to begin the download.
If you are playing Fallout 4 Automatron on PS4 then do the following:From the PS4 menu, navigate to your Library. Navigate to Fallout 4 and press [X]. From the product page, select Related items. Select My add-ons. Select the Automatron add-on download icon on the left to begin the download.
