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!
Price: $24.99 USD
Release: May 2016
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.
Bethesda also announced that they have a lot of DLC planned - about $60 worth. The best part is that between now and 2/29/2106, you can purchase the Fallout 4 Season Pass for only $29.99. On March 1st, the price will increase to $49.99 - and regardless of whether you purchased it at $29.99 or $49.99, you will still get all the season pass DLC! So buy it now and save $20! (That’s what I did!). You can also opt to buy them individually as they come out.
You may also register to play the add-ons early via closed betas for consoles and PC. Just head over to Bethesda.net to apply. You will need to create a Bethesda account (if you don’t already have one). If chosen, you will receive a code to redeem the content. The beta content is the fun version, complete with achievements, and therefore, those chosen for the beta will NOT have to purchase the add-on.
They are continuing to offer free game updates, including new features for weapons, increased draw distances, and optimizations to gameplay and quests. They will also be doing a complete overhaul of Survival Mode, which will change how you play the entire game!
They are also working hard on the Creation Kit, which will allow you to create and play mods for free. Both the Survival Mode and Creation Kit are in the testing phase so we should get more details soon.
