Bethesda Announces Three Fallout 4 DLC Packs, Raises Season Pass Price To $50

Bethesda has been teasing about upcoming DLC for its smash hit Fallout 4, but the developer unleashed the hounds today, announcing three new add-ons for the game. So without further ado, let’s get down to brass tacks.

The cheapest of the three is the Wasteland Workshop, which will be priced at $4.99 and will be available in April. If you like to hunt big game and put it on display, you’ll love this DLC. According to Bethesda, you’ll be able to “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.” It sounds morbidly fun and adds a nice dynamic to the Fallout 4 franchise.

The next piece of DLC comes in the form of the $9.99 add-on, Automatron, which will be available next month. Instead of tracking down live creatures, as seen in the Wasteland Workshop, you’ll be hunting hordes of evil robots that have been commissioned by the Mechanist. Once you capture the rogue robots, you can “harvest their parts to build and mod your own custom robot companions” and select from “hundreds of mods; mixing limbs, armor, abilities, and weapons like the all-new lightning chain gun.”

But those two DLC packs pale in comparison to what Bethesda has in store in May. Priced at $24.99, Far Harbor sends you on a mission to find a “young woman and a colony of synths.” Bethesda describes Far Harbor, writing:

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.

These three add-ons are just the beginning of what Bethesda has in store for DLC in 2016. However, Bethesda is upping the price of the season pass from $29.99 to $49.99 to accommodate what it says will be $60 worth of content delivered throughout 2016. But don’t fret if you already paid your $29.99 — you’ll still get your $60 worth of DLC as promised. However, starting March 1st, if you haven’t already grabbed a season pass, you’ll be paying the new, higher price of $49.99.
