As for the expansion pack, the first mission will be to destroy a number of evil robots who are attacking some good robots. After defeating them, the player will come across a robot by the name of Ada.
It is this particular robot who explains the basic story of the expansion pack. It states that the horde of evil robots are being controlled by a man named as The Mechanist. Nothing much is known about the man except for the fact that he wants to protect the dwellers of the Wasteland and thus he has been creating these robots.
However, the robots seem to attack everything in their path and this has become a problem for everyone. It is also explained that the player will be tasked with finding out The Mechanist and killing him. Ada will provide help to the player in this regard.
As for the Robobrains, these were created when the RobCo industries conducted some weird experiments that involved criminals and other convicts. Apparently, the brains of these criminals and convicts have been used to create the Robobrains.
