Fallout 4 is about to get even bigger. God help us all. Robots, fight clubs, detective mysteries and more are all set to join Bethesda’s post apocalyptic adventure, with the first add-on coming in March. Let’s break it down, shall we?
Coming in March is the Automatron add-on. For £7.99 you’ll be able to hunt down wild robots across the Commonwealth, harvest their parts, and build your own robot companions.
There’ll be hundreds of customisation options for limbs, armour, and weapons – you’ll even be able to choose a voice for your robot buddies.
April will see the arrival of the Wasteland Workshop (£3.99). In this expansion you can basically kidnap creatures (humans included) and force them to fight to the death for your own sick amusement. Sounds fantastic.
This add-on will also come with some additional design options for your settlements. This includes nixi tube lighting, letter kits, taxidermy, and more.
In May, we can get our hands on what sounds like the most fulsome (and exciting) expansion. Far Harbor is £19.99 and gets you a new case to solve from Nick Valentine’s Detective Agency.
A young woman gone missing, a secret colony of synths, and a mysterious island, where “higher levels of radiation have created a more feral world”.
Bethesda sell Far Harbor nicely:
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.
According to Bethesda, this is just the beginning of a veritable smorgasbord of DLC packs coming to Fallout 4 in 2016. To reflect this, they’re increasing the price of the season pass from £24.99 to £39.99.
Obviously, if you already brought the season pass you’ll still get everything for the price you paid. It’s Bethesda’s way of saying thanks. Bless ’em.
The add-ons will also have closed beta tests, which you can sign up for right here. They certainly do look after you, do Bethesda.
