Bethesda has today revealed three pieces of Fallout 4 DLC and they say there’s a lot more planned in the future. The DLC that’s been revealed today includes.
Automatron – Price: £7.99 – 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!
Wasteland Workshop – Price: £3.99 – 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!
Far Harbor – Price: £19.99 – 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.
According to Bethesda this is just the start of the new content planned for the game with more than £45 worth of content coming out in 2016. Now that Bethesda will be creating more DLC that originally planned, they’re going to raise the price of the Season Pass from the current £24.99 to £39.99 on 1 March. If you already have the Season Pass you will still get everything that’s to come at no extra cost.
Bethesda will also be running closed beta tests for all the Fallout 4 DLC and players can sign-up for those from today on Bethesda.Net by registering an account and opting in via your profile page. Potential testers will be selected in the weeks ahead.
As well as the planned DLC, Bethesda say they’re committed to providing free updates like the recent weapon debris enhancement on the PC. They also mention the recently revealed update to Survival Mode but there’s no further details on that just yet.
