Oh right. I never did a post about the Fallout 4 DLC.

Fallout 4 DLC is on the way!  Like Techland said before the release of The Following, Bethesda now insist that their plans for downloadable content this year will far, far, far exceed what is reasonable for the season pass's current thirty dollar price tag.  As such, at the beginning of March, the price of the season pass will increase to fifty dollars- but again, that doesn't happen 'till March 1, so you can still snap it up for $30 if you're of a mind.

What do you get for $50?  They haven't revealed all, but they've revealed quite a bit - and all of it looks pretty appetizing.

Here's the press release.

Automatron - Price: $9.99 USD | £7.99 GBP | $16.95 AUD - Release: March 2016
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! 

Wasteland Workshop - Price: $4.99 USD | £3.99 GBP | $7.95 AUD
Release: April 2016

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! 

Far Harbor - Price: $24.99 USD | £19.99 GBP | $39.95 AUD - 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.

And more important, that this is only the beginning. We have plans for more. More than $60 worth of new Fallout adventures and features throughout 2016.
Terribly appealing!!!

I keep on waffling back and forth on whether or not I should drop the $30 ($40, in my case, what with my Canadian condition) on it.

I dunno, man.  I dunno.  I don't believe I'll have time to play it.  But what about when it comes out and no one will shut up about it and I get all jelly?

'Gotta' plan ahead, man.  Gotta' plan for the jelly.


  1. A borderlands/fallout season pass hasn't burned me yet.

    1. The spectre of Max Payne 3 still looms large over the whole concept, for me.
