Bethesda has announced three separate Fallout 4 add-ons of varying price and scale.
We’ll start with the big stuff. Far Harbor is releasing in May of this year for $24.99. This is the meaty campaign content referenced in the headline. The content features a new locale and a new chapter in Valentine’s story. Here’s how Bethesda describes it.
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.
They say in the release that they plan on offering more campaign-like content in 2016, but they haven’t announced it yet.
Automatron will release in March of 2016 for $9.99. There’s a little narrative content here, but it sounds mostly like a way to introduce custom robot companions to the game. Yep, awesome. Here’s how it’s described.
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!
Finally, we have the Wasteland Workshop. This will release in April of 2016 for $4.99, and it features an interesting enemy trapping system. Here’s Bethesda again.
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!
All this new DLC means a new price for the Season Pass. Bethesda has increased it from $29.99 to $49.99 on March 1, 2016. The good news? Own it before then, and you’ll get everything for $29.99.
