With Fallout 4 having a few months under its belt on consoles and PC, it was only inevitable that DLC talks would start up sooner rather than later.
Today, Bethesda has announced the first three add-ons of Fallout 4 DLC that will be releasing over the next three months – Automatron, Wasteland Workshop and Far Harbor.
With the increase in content coming to the Season Pass, Bethesda will be increasing the price from $29.99 to $49.99 on March 1, 2016. Those who still have not purchased the Season Pass will have till the end of February before the price hike takes effect.
Fans who can’t wait to get their hands on Fallout 4’s DLC can sign up on Bethesda’s website to partake in a beta to test them out ahead of time. Players accepted into the beta will receive a code to redeem the content. The beta is the full version (complete with achievements) and those participating will not have to purchase the add-on.
Bethesda has also promised the continuation of free updates to Fallout 4 on both PC and consoles, with plans to completely overhaul Survival Mode that changes how you play the whole game: food, sleep, diseases, danger and more. Along with the Survival Mode, Bethesda is hard at work on a Creation Kit, which will allow you to create and play mods absolutely free. More details will be forthcoming.
