Like me, I’m sure you’ve all played Fallout 4 for hundreds of hours and have run out of things to do. Well never fear! Bethesda have finally announced the details of the Fallout 4 DLC, and boy is it meaty!
March 2016 | £7.99 | $9.99 USD | $16.95 AUD
“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!”
April 2016 | £3.99 | $4.99 USD | $7.95 AUD
“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 nixie tube lighting, letter kits, taxidermy and more!”
May 2016 | £19.99 | $24.99 USD | $39.95 AUD
“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 is interesting to note that this is only the first batch of DLC planned for Fallout 4. On the announcement page, Bethesda state that they have “more than $60 worth of new Fallout adventures and features throughout 2016.”
However, the increase in DLC also leads to an increase in price. The season pass will increase to £39.99 | $49.99 USD | $79.95 AUD. This price increase doesn’t start until March 1st, so if you plan on buying the season pass then do so now. Bethesda have left this period of time before the price increase as their “way of saying thanks to all [their] loyal fans who have believed in [them] and supported [them] over the years.”
Bethesda are also offering gamers the chance to test the new DLC before release through closed betas on consoles and PC. Applicants must have a Bethesda.net account and can sign up for the beta through the website here.
