Bethesda revealed that Fallout 4 is their most successful title ever. To celebrate this reveal, what better way than to reveal the first batch of add-ons plans for the open-world game.
The first add-on, titled Automatron, will release next month for £7.99. The synopsis of this new content has the mysterious Mechanist unleashing 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.
The next add-on will release in April; Wasteland Workshop will set you back £3.99. This time around, 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!
This will then be followed by the biggest add-on yet in May. At a hefty £19.99, Far Harbor will have players traveling off the coast of Maine to the mysterious island of Far Harbor on a search for a young woman and a secret colony of synths. Players will have to navigate through the conflict between the synths, the Children of Atom, and the local townspeople.
Furthermore, Bethesda plans on supporting Fallout 4 throughout 2016. Unfortunately, this brings a price increase to the game’s season pass. On March 1st, the price will go from £24.99 to £39.99. If you already own the Season Pass, nothing changes. However, if you’re a Fallout fan who has yet to pick it up, you might want to buy it before the increase.
In a first, Bethesda will also be running closed betas for each add-ons on both consoles and PCs. Interested players need a registered Bethesda.net account and can sign up here. The beta will consist of the full version of the Add-on, Achievements and all. Participating players won’t have to buy the add-on.
The publisher is also currently testing the Creation Kit and Survival Mode. Expect additional details in the near future.
