Bethesda has announced the three Fallout 4 add-ons that will be released over the next three months. In March, April, and May 2016, new experiences will be added to the Commonwealth for people to enjoy. These are the first three DLC packs for the game, with more planned throughout 2016.
The first Fallout 4 DLC will be Automatron. This add-on will allow people to make their own robot companions. The Mechanist has sent tons of robots out into the world, one of them being the Robobrain, and these can be harvested to build your own buddy. Players get to customize their look completely, as well as their voice and abilities. New weapons, like a lightning chain gun, will also be included in this $9.99, March 2016 DLC.
The second add-on is the $4.99 Wasteland Workshop. This adds some Pokemon elements to Fallout 4. You can trap and tame enemies, be they human or Deathclaw, then use them for your own means. This April DLC will also add more furniture to craft for settlements.
Finally, Fallout 4 players can head to Far Harbor in May. This $24.99 add-on sends you to a new island location called Far Harbor. The Valentine Detective Agency has been asked to look for a missing woman, and there’s allegedly a colony of Synths. Once there, players have to decide if they side with the Synths, the townspeople, or the Children of the Atom. This is more of an expansion than ordinary DLC, as Bethesda says it is the largest landmass ever made for one of its games’ add-ons.
As a result of the increased cost of the Fallout 4 DLC, Bethesda will increase the price of the season pass. If you purchase it by February 29, 2016, it will be $29.99. After March 1, 2016, the price will go up to $49.99.
Closed betas will be held for all three of the aforementioned add-ons. Bethesda is taking applications for console and PC beta tests on Bethesda.net. People participating in the beta will receive the full version of the DLC.
Fallout 4 is immediately available for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.
