Bethesda have released a vault load of details about the first three add-ons for Fallout 4, and shared an important update about the season pass.
The star of this show is the mysterious Mechanist, who has "unleashed a horde of evil robots into the Commonwealth, including the devious Robobrain.” According to the press release. “Hunt them down and harvest their parts to build and mod your own custom robot companions." You can modify your companions in hundreds of ways by mixing armour, abilities, weapons (including a brand new lightning chain gun), paint and voices. Let's hope Codsworth doesn't get jealous.
With Wasteland Workshop, scheduled for release in April at £3.99, you can design and set cages to capture live creatures. Yes, that includes Deathclaws, and even unfortunate raiders. It's your choice whether to tame them (who wouldn't want a pet Deathclaw?) or have them fight for your amusement, either facing off against each other or battling your fellow settlers - you monster.
The last, and largest, of the three is Far Harbor, which is set for a May release and can be yours for a hefty £19.99.
A new case for Valentine's Detective Agency takes you off the coast of Maine, to the island of Far Harbor in search of a young woman and a secret colony of synths. The island has a high level of radiation that has resulted in a more feral landscape than usual, in which you'll witness growing conflict between the synths, the Children of Atom and the locals. "Will you work towards bringing peace to Far Harbor, and at what cost?" Asks Bethesda, enigmatically.
The developer states that Far Harbor has the biggest landmass of any expansion they've created, and features new faction quests, settlements, lethal creatures and dungeons, as well as new higher-level armour and weapons.
That's not all though, they've also promised more than £45 worth of new Fallout 4 content will be heading our way during 2016.
Given the wealth of DLC that's planned, the price of the season pass is increasing from £24.99 to £39.99 come 1 March, so be sure to snap it up whilst it's cheap if you fancy it. Those who currently own the pass are already set.
Not only that, you can sign up for the closed betas to be in with a chance of netting the DLC for free, as testers gain access to the complete packages, achievements and all.
If that's not enough, Bethesda will continue to update the game with new features and bug fixes. There's a complete overhaul of Survival Mode coming that’ll change how you play, tweaking food, sleep, diseases, danger and more systems.
The new Survival Mode and the Creation Kit, which will allow you to create and play mods, are currently being tested. We'll let you know when more details are released.
