Fallout 4 DLC plans expanded; Season Pass price will go up to $50 on March 1

Fans of Bethesda Softworks's hit post-apocalypse RPG Fallout 4 for the Xbox One, PC and PlayStation 4 will be getting even more post-release DLC packs than originally announced. However, that means the game's Season Pass, which allows owners of the game to get all of its DLC packs, will get a price increase from $29.99 to $49.99 starting March 1.

That's the bad news. The good news is that there is time to get the Season Pass for the lower price and still get all of Fallout 4's DLC packs:

"However, if you already purchased the season pass for $29.99, nothing changes - you still get everything at no additional cost— the full $60 offering of add-on content for the original price of $29.99. In addition, if you didn't buy the season pass yet, there is still time: anyone who buys the Season Pass for $29.99 before March 1st will get all $60 worth of content. This is our way of saying thanks to all our loyal fans who have believed in us and supported us over the years."

Bethesda has also revealed details of the first three DLC packs for Fallout 4. The first one, Automatron, will be out in March for $9.99 for non-Season Pass players:

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!

The second DLC pack, Wasteland Workshop, is scheduled for release in April for the stand-alone price of $4.99:

"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!"

Finally a big DLC pack, Far Harbor, is due out in May for the price of $24.99:

"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."

People who want to try out DLC packs before they are publicly released can sign up for closed beta testing at Bethesda.net. Finally, the Creation Kit for Fallout 4, which will allow players to create and/or play user-made mods, is still in the works, with Bethesda saying that it will have more details on these tools soon.

  • Sweet, glad I already bought mine.
  • Already done with this game so I wont bother. Good game.
  • "This is our way of selling more Season Passes."
  • No DLC for me. Retail game is enough, not spending any more than that, ever.  
  • Clever marketing happening
  • So will there be more then this 3? I have never really understand Fallout 4 seasonpass. My store price for bundle was higher price then buying game + season pass.
    And for this, isnt a seasonpass something that should make all dlc "alot" cheaper etc. For right now its worth 40, and seasonpass right now is 30, but it will be 50... So I really hope they add atleast 20-30$ more worth of content for season pass owner. If its a small dlc thats worth 5-10 (that I would guess) then there is no diffrent in buying season pass or not, they prob just do some "marketing" and sound good off, just like Withcer 3 and the "all dlc free"
     
  • Overpriced DLC, as always. This game went overboard on overpriced physical merchandising, so I can't say I'm surprised to see the CoD-level DLC increase. Here I was, hoping the lower)priced Season Passes would become the norm, then we see Battlefront at $50 and Dying Light and Fallout 4 get price hikes. I'll stick to waiting on a Complete Edition release and pay $60 for all of the content. I bought it at launch and made it 3 hours before just not caring too much to play it. I'm just going to trade it in and play Kingdom Hearts instead. At least Bethesda is giving folks a chance and advance notice on the price increase, though. That's nice of them to be upfront about it.
  • Wow.. no thanks.  
  • So they screw over the people who payd 50$ in the first place and still no sigh about any releas dates
  • What the hell are you talking about? The price has been $30 since launch, and it's going up to $50, but you can still get it for $30 for 2 more weeks. You also got that DLC will release in March, April, AND May, though no specific dates. You basically said the 100% opposite of what reality is.
  • Didnt even bother to read the article did you Mikko, or just failed reading comprehension?
  • I hope you don't need nick for the Far Harbour DLC right now he is in limbo above high above trinity tower
  • DLC on top of initial game price for this type of game is a great value for the amount of hours and story available.
  • Bethesda usually packs alot of content into their dlc.
  • DLC, you know the drill. You don't like them, don't buy them. And make sure to complain endlessly about the state of the industry and how every game should be for free like LoL, and tell us how awful games that have DLC are, without even having played them, like happened with Evolve.
  • I don't have a problem with dlc but I do have a problem with incomplete games that try to get you to buy dlc to just complete the game. Destiny was the biggest rip off ever we didn't so much as get a chapter worth of story in that game.
  • Sweet been waiting for some dlc only problem is The Division but im sure I can make some room. Hell the first 3 dlc come to $40 everything else is gravy.
