Fallout 4 was clearly one of the biggest releases of 2015 after it hit in November of last year. We are just beginning to see some solid discounts on the main game, and developer Bethesda has now taken to its official blog to detail the upcoming DLC. Set for launch starting in March, the three add-on packs are quite substantial as you would expect from Bethesda. There are some interesting new gameplay mechanics, along with what sounds like some very compelling story-based content. More details below.
Due to how substantial the add-ons are, Bethesda has decided to up the price of the Fallout 4 Season Pass from $29.99 to $49.99 on March 1st, 2016. However, if you grab the Season Pass now, Bethesda said “you still get everything at no additional cost— the full $60 offering of add-on content for the original price of $29.99”. Needless to say, if you have the game already and want these add-ons, you might want to grab the Season Pass now. We are yet to see a notable discount on it.
We are talking new robot enemies and customizable companions, the ability to tame wild creatures and battle them against other settlers and a brand new mystery to solve with Nick Valentine. Here some details courtesy of Bethesda:
Automatron: $9.99 (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: $4.99 (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 nixie tube lighting, letter kits, taxidermy and more!
Far Harbor: $24.99 (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.
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.
