Bethesda have finally lifted the lid on the Vault to give us a look at what’s coming.The first of the DLC packs is called Automatron, and it’s coming in March. “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!”

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.”

Far Harbor
Price: $24.99 USD | £19.99 GBP | $39.95 AUD
Release: May 2016

However, this comes at a cost, and that can be taken literally. As of March 1st, the season pass pricing will change. If you buy it now, it will set you back $30 or your regional equivalent. From March 1st, the season pass will cost $49.99 (£24.99 to £39.99 GBP; $49.95 to $79.95 AUD). Buy it now, and you will get all planned content for the same price. Whooo!

Bethesda have also announced that there will be closed betas for each of the Fallout 4 add-ons before launch, and that players can get in and test them out on both PC and consoles. You can sign up here at Bethesda.net and all you have to do is create a Bethesda.net account and cross your fingers.

What do you make of the planned Fallout 4 DLC thus far? Are you still scouring the wasteland or have you been holding out all this time for new content before returning?
