Stated in a press release and via their blog, Bethesda spoke of their excitement about their upcoming DLC and thanked fans of the game for their continued support:
“Today we reveal details for the first three Fallout 4 add-ons, plans for additional content, updates, mods, and more. Since Fallout 4 launched, we’ve been blown away by your support for the game. It stands as our most successful title ever and that couldn’t have happened without you. It’s been truly inspiring, the stories, images and experiences that you’ve created. And now it’s time to share with you some of what we’ve been creating
Heres a description of each DLC, including price and release date:
- Automatron, £7.99, 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, £3.99, 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, £19.99, 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.
As well as this, Bethesda has more DLC planned for the rest of this year. However, if you have not yet bought the Season Pass for Fallout 4 now is the time to get it. Due to the expanded DLC plan Bethesda have had to raise the price from £24.99 to £39.99.
Fear not though! If you buy the Season Pass before 1st March you will get the Season Pass at the current price before it gets raised just before the price increase.
Bethesda also announced that each lot of DLC will be getting a beta, which you can sign up for here, and the good news is that if you purchase the beta you will not need to then purchase the extra content again!
