Fallout 4 DLC Outlined

Bethesda Softworks has announced on the game’s website the DLC content that will be included in the season pass for Fallout 4. Three major releases will be coming in March, April, and May respectively. However, Bethesda also stated that there will be some changes to the pricing scheme: “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.” The publisher was quick to reassure those who have already purchased the package that nothing will change for them, and remind their audience that the pass can still be purchased at the current price until March 1st.

As for the content itself, the three releases are called Automatron, Wasteland Workshop, and Far Harbor (in order of release).  The first will be a quest involving a new character called “The Mechanic”, who unleashes an army of robots upon the Commonwealth. It will be up to the player to defeat his army, and the parts you collect from his minions will be used to build your own companion. Workshop will expand the wasteland building mechanics to allow the creation of traps. The player will ensnare enemies, ranging from Radscorpions to Raiders to Deathclaws, train them, and send them to fight other “pets” and settlers.

Finally, Far Harbor looks to be the most traditional Fallout expansion, introducing an entirely new area for players to explore. Bethesda says that “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.” The quest will apparently be centered around a new case from Valentine’s Detective Agency, and will lead to an island off the coast of Maine in search of a young woman.

Bethesda also made a point to mention that the Creation Kit, which allows the free use of mods, and a new Survival Mode (think New Vegas), are currently being tested for release in the near future.
