If you’ve got a Season Pass for Fallout 4 already you’ll be pleased to hear that Bethesda have just announced the details of the contents for the first 3 DLC packs.
The first 3 pieces of add-on content will be titled Automatron, Wasteland Workshop and Far Harbor and will be available both separately and as part of the Season Pass. But you’ll probably want to get your hands on the Season Pass anyway (more on that later).
First up in March is the Automatron DLC, which will set non-season pass holders back by £7.99.
“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 arrives in April at £3.99 (or free in the Season Pass).
“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, out in May, costs £19.99
“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.”
As the largest of the add-ons it looks like a pretty substantial addition to the game and is just £5 shy of the retail price of the Season Pass.
But that’s not the only reason you’ll want to grab a pass sooner rather than later. Bethesda have also announced a huge amount of content will be out after these already planned add-ons and will push the price of the Season Pass up by £20 more, similar to what happened with The Following add-on for Dying Light.
“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.”
Luckily, PC owners of the game can grab the whole Season Pass for just over £16 at the moment from Instant Gaming while it’s in stock.
