Fallout 4 publishers, Bethesda have today announced three future downloadable content packs to arrive on the Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC throughout Spring this year, as well as dishing out information on the three upcoming expansions the publishers revealed plans to increase the price of the Fallout 4 Season Pass, which originally cost £24.99. With future content for Fallout 4 set to reach the 45-pound mark, Bethesda have adjusted the price of the Season Pass from £24.99 to £39.99, of course, this will only affect those who were yet to purchase the pass.
This is what Bethesda had to say following the announcement,
[box type=”shadow” align=”aligncenter” class=”” width=””]Since Fallout 4 launched, we’ve been blown away by your support for the game. It stands as our most successful title ever and that couldn’t have happened without you. It’s been truly inspiring, the stories, images and experiences that you’ve created. And now it’s time to share with you some of what we’ve been creating – our first series of add-ons: Automatron, Wasteland Workshop and Far Harbor.[/box]
Of course Fallout 4 players will be able to purchase each individual piece of content separately if they do not wish to commit to the Season Pass.
Fallout 4’s first piece of content comes in the form of Automatron which will launch in March this year. 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!
Automatron will be available to purchase for £7.99 and becomes available in March.
Following on the first downloadable content is Wasteland Workshop, which launches in April 2016. With the Wasteland Workshop players can 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!
Wasteland Workshop will be available from April and will cost £3.99.
By far the biggest expansion of Spring arrives in May with Far Harbor which will also be the most expensive part of Spring’s DLC. 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.
Far Harbor will be available in May and will set players back £19.99.
Bethesda are also giving players and fans of Fallout 4 a chance to play each add on early with closed betas across all consoles and PC. Players can sign up right now on Bethesda.net. In order to apply, you’ll need to create a registered Bethesda.net account. Over the upcoming weeks, Bethesda will select applicants. 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 will continue to offer free updates to Fallout 4, 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. They will also give Survival Mode a complete overhaul that changes how you play the whole game. Food, sleep, diseases, danger and more.
Finally, the publishers are hard at work on the Fallout 4 Creation Kit, which will allow players to create and play mods absolutely free. Both Survival Mode and the Creation Kit are currently being tested, and more details will be forthcoming.
