Have you already sunk hundreds of hours into Fallout 4 and are anxiously awaiting both mods as well as paid content to feed your post apocalyptic appetite? Well Bethesda’s got you covered. Today they posted a blog about all their upcoming Fallout 4 DLC plans, as well as their plans to increase the price of the season pass come March 1st.
Let’s start with the important bit first. Bethesda will be releasing far more Fallout 4 DLC than they’d originally anticipated. They’ve gone hog wild, it seems, and are planning more than $60 worth of DLC over the next year.
The season pass, however, is currently only $30. How will they reconcile such a difference in price? The easy way, by increasing the cost of the season pass on March 1st from $29.99 to $49.99 (£24.99 to £39.99 GBP; $49.95 to $79.95 AUD). Fortunately anyone who currently owns the season pass – or buys it before March 1st – will have it upgraded to the $49.99 version free of charge.
What more, Bethesda will be running betas for each of the addons, and you can sign up for that via Bethesda.net. Anyone who gets randomly chosen to help Bethesda test the Fallout 4 DLC will get a code to redeem the full version, complete with achievements, and will no longer have to pay for the add-on. Of course if you’re gung ho to get DLC for free, you’ll be less likely to take advantage of the reduced season price cost while you can. Bethesda is savvy.
They also mention that they’re hard at work on the Creation Kit, and are testing both it and Survival Mode. More details on those will be forthcoming. So, uh, eventually.
Now for the Fallout 4 DLC Bethesda has unveiled. The first couple are smaller and fairly inconsequential, but the third one seems like it has the potential to be pretty awesome. No telling yet what else Bethesda may have in store for the second half of the year, but if I had to guess, it would be another couple smaller DLCs and a second expansion.
But without further ado:
Automaton comes out in March for $9.99 USD | £7.99 GBP | $16.95 AUD.
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 – our first series of add-ons: Automatron, Wasteland Workshop and Far Harbor.
In April, we’ll get the Wasteland Workshop for $4.99 USD | £3.99 GBP | $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!
The last announced one comes out in May, and it’s a doozy, a full expansion, Far Harbor, at $24.99 USD | £19.99 GBP | $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.
Needless to say, for anyone who picked the bones of Boston clean, and are hungry for more Fallout 4, Bethesda has heard your growling stomachs and will be piling DLC on your plate.
