On Wednesday, Fallout 4 developer Bethesda outlined the game's upcoming downloadable content plans.
"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," said Bethesda in a blog post on the DLC. The first add-on, Automatron, is set to launch in March for $9.99, introducing a new villain, an army of killer robots, and even the ability to create your own robot companion. Automatron also adds a new weapon: the "lightning chain gun." In April, Bethesda plans to release Wasteland Workshop for $4.99 which allows users to build and set cages, tame enemies, and more. The third DLC, Far Harbor, is priced at $24.99 and is slated for May. Far Harbor is a story expansion for the game which sends players to a "mysterious island" off the coast of Maine where "higher levels of radiation have created a more feral world." Bethesda added that it has plans for more than $60 of new content this year.
"Given the expanded DLC plan, the price of the season pass will increase from the current $29.99 to $49.99," said Bethesda. This change will start on March 1, 2016, though users who have already purchased the season pass at the lower price will get the content at no additional cost. Anyone who buys the $29.99 season pass before March 1 will get all $60 worth of content for no additional cost. Users can also sign up to beta test these add-ons ahead of their launch. "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," said Bethesda. The company also said that it is testing an overhauled Survival Mode and a new Creation Kit for Fallout.
