Today is a good day for Fallout 4 fans – Bethesda have finally lifted the lid on some of the additional DLC we’ll be playing over the next few months.
We’ve been given details of three DLC add-ons – ‘Automatron’, ‘Wasteland Workshop’ and ‘Far Harbor’. You can find out more about each new piece of content below:
Release: March 2016
The mysterious Mechanist has unleashed a horde of evil robots into the Commonwealth, including the devious Robobrain. Hunt them down and harvest their parts to build and mod your own custom robot companions. Choose from hundreds of mods; mixing limbs, armor, abilities, and weapons like the all-new lightning chain gun. Even customize their paint schemes and choose their voices!
Release: April 2016
With the Wasteland Workshop, design and set cages to capture live creatures – from raiders to Deathclaws! Tame them or have them face off in battle, even against your fellow settlers. The Wasteland Workshop also includes a suite of new design options for your settlements like nixi tube lighting, letter kits, taxidermy and more!
Release: May 2016
“A new case from Valentine’s Detective Agency leads you on a search for a young woman and a secret colony of synths. Travel off the coast of Maine to the mysterious island of Far Harbor, where higher levels of radiation have created a more feral world. Navigate through the growing conflict between the synths, the Children of Atom, and the local townspeople. Will you work towards bringing peace to Far Harbor, and at what cost? Far Harbor features the largest landmass for an add-on that we’ve ever created, filled with new faction quests, settlements, lethal creatures and dungeons. Become more powerful with new, higher-level armor and weapons. The choices are all yours.”
It’s all sounding awesome with ‘Far Harbor’ seemingly the cherry on top. There’s even better news though – Bethesda have announced there will be even more DLC for Fallout 4 fans to play through than originally planned, all coming free to season pass owners.
There’s a catch though – the season pass will soon be going up in price to £44.99. If you buy it quick you can still get it for its original price of £24.99 – details of that are below:
“Given the expanded DLC plan, the price of the season pass will increase from the current £24.99 to £39.99 on March 1, 2016. However, if you already purchased the season pass for £24.99, nothing changes – you still get everything at no additional cost— the full £45 offering of add-on content for the original price of £24.99. In addition, if you didn’t buy the season pass yet, there is still time: Anyone who buys the Season Pass for £24.99 before March 1st will get all £45 worth of content. This is our way of saying thanks to all our loyal fans who have believed in us and supported us over the years.”
All the new DLC is sounding awesome. Bethesda have proved in previous title they’ve released that they can keep providing fantastic experiences for games post release – I think that’ll be the case here. If you are one of the few who haven’t played Fallout 4 yet it’s available to buy now on Playstation 4, Xbox One and PC.
