Bethesda is getting ready to send Fallout 4 fans to the high seas with Far Harbor, the third and most ambitious DLC pack for the post-apocalyptic title that was honored as Game of the Year at the DICE Awards, but what comes next? Perhaps a trip to a wasteland theme park called Nuka World, which holds all sorts of fun possibilities. Reddit forum member "flashman7870" data mined Fallout 4's game files and posted an interesting screenshot of what he found. There were three entries of note, including "DLCNukaWorld.esm," "DLCworkshop02.exm," and "DLCworkshop03.esm."

We all have our ways of dealing with the end of the world. For Henry Bemis, the apocalypse presented him with an opportunity to read all the books he ever wanted without interruption, an opportunity he squandered by stepping on his glasses. For others, it might be capturing creatures from the wasteland and then forcing settlers to fight them in a makeshift arena, as we see in a new trailer for Fallout 4's Wasteland Workshop DLC. That alone is likely to make the forthcoming add-on worth the $5 asking price—you'd have a tough time escaping Starbucks without spending more than that. What Bethesda's offering isn't an overpriced coffee, however, it's the opportunity take delight in ways that only... Read more...
