Everything You Need To Know About Fallout 4’s DLC, Which Starts In March
Fallout 4 has been hugely popular since its release that by now you may have explored the entire game and are hungry for more. Well, there’s good news: Bethesda has finally outlined the first batch of downloadable content (DLC) for the game, and it kicks off next month.
The first add-on comes in the form of “Automatron,” which launches in March for $9.99 and is described as below :
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!
There’s also the $4.99 “Wasteland Workshop,” which will start somewhere in 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!
And finally, there’s the $24.99 “Far Harbor,” which Bethesda aims to release in 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.
If you purchased the DLC season pass for the game for $29.99, you’ll be able to get all of this plus upcoming content as well. However, starting March 1st Bethesda is bumping the price up to $49.99 for new buyers — so if you want to check out everything that’s coming, you’ll want to act fast. “That this is only the beginning,” Bethesda says of its DLC plans.
Given the expanded DLC plan, the price of the season pass will increase from the current $29.99 to $49.99 USD (£24.99 to £39.99 GBP; $49.95 to $79.95 AUD) on March 1, 2016. However, if you already purchased the season pass for $29.99, nothing changes – you still get everything at no additional cost— the full $60 offering of add-on content for the original price of $29.99. In addition, if you didn’t buy the season pass yet, there is still time: anyone who buys the Season Pass for $29.99 before March 1st will get all $60 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.
These add-ons will even have closed beta tests, which you can sign up for here. Beyond that, Bethesda says it will keep updating the game with improvements and optimizations, and even gameplay additions. As you might have heard, an overhaul to Survival Mode is coming, and there are still plans to bring the Creation Kit to life for modders as well. Looks like 2016 is going to be a busy year for Fallout 4.
