Something for everyone.
On the heels a major update (see here), Bethesda has come forward with some 'Fallout 4' (review here) DLC plans, including a free beta (for some) and an increase in price for those who wait until March. There are three announced content pieces. In March, it's the robot-killing and building-focused 'Automatron.' In April comes 'Wasteland Workshop,' which will let players capture and tame raiders and Deathclaws among others. In May, 'Far Harbor' is the meatiest piece, and it will take players to an island off the coast of Maine.
The season pass has been priced at $29.99, but come March 1st, the price will go up to $49.99. (Get it here.)
Bethesda is teasing that these three content pieces are only the "beginning" of what the season pass will get players in 2016.
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.
While the 'Automatron' is due in March, players can get in early (and for free) by getting into the closed beta. There will be closed betas for each piece for consoles and for PC. Sign for the beta here.
