Yep, every vaulters dream.
Calling Fallout 4 their most successful title ever, Bethesda have been working hard to stay on the top of that list of games being played with upcoming content. This includes Automatron, Wasteland Workshop and Far Harbor.
Automatron will be priced at $9.99 USD and released in 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. Gamers 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, priced at $4.99 USD with a release date of 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 priced at $24.99 USD with a release date of May 2016. A new case from Valentine’s Detective Agency leads players 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?
Bethesda says Far Harbor features the largest landmass for an add-on they’ve ever created, filled with new faction quests, settlements, lethal creatures and dungeons. Become more powerful with new, higher-level armor and weapons.
As the famous late night commercial promises, what, there’s more!
Bethesda says it has more than $60 worth of new Fallout adventures and features throughout 2016.
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, gamers who have already purchased the season pass for $29.99, nothing, they still get everything at no additional cost, meaning the full $60 offering of add-on content for the original price of $29.99.
Even if gamers have bought 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,’ Bethesda notes.
For the serious Fallout fans, they can join in closed betas for each of the add-ons by signing up at Bethesda.net. In order to apply, gamers will need to create a registered Bethesda.net account with applicants being selected in the upcoming weeks. Players accepted into the beta will receive a code to redeem the content. The beta is the full version, complete with achievements and those participating will not have to purchase the add-on.
Beyond add-ons, Bethesda promises to continue to offer free updates to the game, including new features like the recent weapon debris for PC, and increased draw distances for consoles, as well as more optimizations to gameplay and quests.
This includes a complete overhaul of Survival Mode that changes how the game is played affecting food, sleep, diseases, danger and more.
As if all this wasn’t enough for the to-do list, Bethesda is hard at work on the Creation Kit, which will allow gamers to create and play mods absolutely free.
