Fallout 4’s First DLC Add-Ons Announced

Fallout 4’s first DLC chapters revealed, Season Pass gets sizable price hike


Since releasing on the Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC on November 10, 2015, players around the world have sunk countless hours into scouring the wastelands of Boston. Over the course of that time there’s no doubt players have uncovered the bulk of the secrets tucked away in Bethesda’s latest post-apocalyptic sandbox title. That said, it comes as welcome news to hear that Bethesda today unveiled several pieces of DLC content slated to make their way to the game starting next month, and concluding in May 2016.

Check out the first details on 3 upcoming DLC chapters, Automatron, Wasteland Workshop and Far Harbor below:


Price: $9.99 USD

Release:  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

Price: $4.99 USD

Release: April 2016

Fallout 4 DLC

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

Price: $24.99 USD

Release: May 2016

Fallout 4 DLC

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.

While a fresh selection of DLC is always welcome news, those who haven’t yet purchased the Fallout 4 Season Pass may be disappointed to learn that the price of the pass is set to be raised from the current $29.99 price to $49.99 USD on March 1, 2016. Bethesda cites the ambitious nature of the DLC as the reason for the price hike. That said, if you want to get your mitts on this DLC and have yet to purchase the Season Pass, you still have a few weeks to do so before the $20 bump takes affect.

So, what are your thoughts on this first batch of Fallout 4 DLC? Does Bethesda’s decision to up the price on the Season Pass burn you like a Radroach bite to the buttocks? Be sure to sound off in the comments section below.
