Tons Of Great Fallout 4 DLC Details, But They Come At A Price
Fallout 4 is a humongous game but wait, lots more content is on the way!
Developer Bethesda has officially revealed the details for upcoming Fallout 4 expansions; at least three are currently in the works. However, due to this massive amount of new content, the price of the expansion pass is rising from $30 to $50.
Yeah, it's a pretty steep increase but check out what we're getting in 2016: First up is Automatron, which is slated to release next month and has the Mechanist character releasing "a horde of evil robots," including the freakish Robobrain. Players will track these foes down and even use the parts to build their own robot! Automatron can be purchased separately for $10 and as Bethesda stated:
"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."
Then comes Wasteland Workshop in April, which will go for $5 if you don't spring for the expansion pass. Here, players can design and set stages to capture live creatures. You can "tame them or have them face off in battle, even against your fellow settlers." This nifty add-on features a suite of new design options for your settlements, too. Third on the list is Far Harbor, which is scheduled for May and has the steepest price of $25. You will accept a mission from the Valentine's Day Detective Agency to find a young woman "and a secret colony of synths." In terms of size, Far Harbor will be the biggest piece of DLC Bethesda has ever made.
Added the developer:
"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."
But that's not all. The team said even more content will be announced later, and that new stuff will amount to "more than $60 worth of new Fallout adventures and features." We can also expect more features and updates, including a "complete overhaul" of the game's Survival Mode. Lastly, Bethesda confirmed that beta tests will be held for each of the aforementioned three expansions on both consoles and PC. If you want in, click through the link above and sign up at the developer's website; participants "will be chose in the coming weeks."
As for the increased price of the expansion pass, the price hike doesn't go into effect until March 1, so if you snag it before then, you'll pay the original $30 asking price. Given all this info, we strongly recommend doing that.
