'Fallout 4' DLC news: Bethesda announces three new expansions coming this spring


Bethesda has something great cooking for countless “Fallout 4” fans as they announced that a series of add-ons for the video game is currently in development.

First on its DLC roster is titled “Automatron” and lets players build their own robots to their liking using various robot parts. The player and his custom robot will then go and hunt down evil robots in the Commonwealth which includes primary enemy, Robobrain. Coming out this March, “Automatron” will be up for $10.

Second one is called “Wasteland Workshop” where players can catch inhabitants of the wasteland by setting traps. The player will then have the option to either tame the creature and use it to his advantage or let them face off each other. It comes out in April at $5.

The last DLC is called “Far Harbor,” which will be released in May for $25. It is the largest of the three expansions, and it features a new case from Valentine’s Detective Agency, new quests, settlements, creatures, as well as improved equipment.

On top of these three DLCs, Bethesda also announced that they will also be releasing $65-worth of new content throughout the course of this year. However, Season Pass price has been increased from $30 to $50 starting March 1. Fortunately, for those who were able to get theirs prior to the cost hike, there will be no extra cost for the new content.

In an interview with Todd Howard, Bethesda Game Studios creative director, he revealed that the company’s decision to announce “Fallout 4” only five months before its release has helped it achieve the success it enjoys today. He explained that Bethesda gives people enough window time to be excited about the game and eventually get a hold of it before the anticipation dies.

“I would like that to become the norm. I hope that the way we did it with Fallout changes how a lot of people do it, and how successful it was doing it that way. I think a lot of people are going to start doing that. That’s my hope,” Howard said referencing how other video game developers should follow suit.
