During E3 2015, Bethesda shocked the world by announcing that Fallout 4, their flagship saga, was coming out in mid-November, that year. The game exploded into households, upon release, with many gamers logging countless hours of gameplay. However, that wasn’t the end of Bethesda’s plans for console domination. We knew there would be a DLC coming soon, however, we didn’t realize that Bethesda had 3 DLCs in the works.
Starting in March, gamers can download the first of 3 DLCs that will each come out the month after. Check out the breakdown below!
Automatron/$9.99 USD/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 USD/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/$24.99 USD/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.
So far, these DLCs look incredible with a price that’s actually pretty reasonable. For those who have the season pass, though, they can just glaze over that little detail. However for those of us who don’t, you better get it before March 1st!
As of March 1st, 2016, Bethesda will be raising the price for Fallout 4’s Season Pass from $29.99 to $49.99. The reason being because they feel that the new content they are releasing is worth far more than the original price of the Season Pass.
Bethesda claims that this is just the beginning for Fallout 4 DLCs. We expect to hear more when Bethesda has their 2nd Press Conference at E3 2016, later this year.
Our advice if you’re excited for these DLCs is to buy the Season Pass now, instead of waiting until March 1st and paying way more than you should have to.
If you can’t wait to play these DLCs, you can actually be a part of a closed Beta by signing up now on Bethesda.net! You will need to have a valid Bethesda account.
The DLCs for Fallout 4 start rolling out March 2016!
