Bethesda Details Fallout 4 DLC, 3 Packages Arriving Before June

For the past several months Bethesda Game Studios has been hard at work on post-release content for Fallout 4, namely the DLC packages that fans have been patiently waiting for. Today, its plans for DLC during the first half of the year have been detailed, and they're promising.

By the end of May three DLCs will debut for Fallout 4, each with original content. Bethesda had the following to say about the news:

 

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.

Priced between $4.99 and $24.99, these DLCs will vary in scope, and will all be provided to Season Pass holders. Bethesda noted that there's more to come later in the year, and by 2017 a total of five or six DLCs will be available for Fallout 4.

Below are descriptions for each package:

 

Automatron – March 2016

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!

Wasteland Workshop – April 2016

With the Wasteland Workshop, 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. The Wasteland Workshop also includes a suite of new design options for your settlements like nixi tube lighting, letter kits, taxidermy and more!

Far Harbor – May 2016

A new case from Valentine’s Detective Agency leads you on a search for a young woman and a secret colony of synths. 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.

Bethesda has a strong reputation in regards to DLC. Fallout 3's DLC releases were substantial, and are regarded as one of the best examples of high-value post-release content in gaming. As a result, expectations are high for this soon-to-be-released content.
