We still have a couple of months to go before Bethesda releases Fallout 4, but the company is already opening up about the game’s downloadable content. I’m not talking about horse armor either, I’m talking about a Season Pass that will give you access to the numerous DLCs that Bethesda has planned for Fallout 4. While the Season Pass will cost $30, Bethesda claims that the content that comes with it will be worth at least $40, and if we get as much content as we did with Fallout 3 or Fallout: New Vegas, then I believe them. On top of that, Bethesda announced that its official mod tools for the game will launch early next year, for free, of course.
Fallout 4 isn’t out yet, not until November, but that hasn’t stopped Bethesda from talking about its future. As is the fashion nowadays, Fallout 4 will come with an optional Season Pass that for a one-off fee will get you automatic access to any DLC released for the game. For our North American friends, that’ll cost $30. At the current exchange rate that’s £20, which seems fair if we get a similar range of DLC for Fallout 4 as we did for Fallout 3. That said, all we have is Bethesda’s word that they “know that it will be worth at least $40” and a reminder that they could even do more than that. Of course, they’ve left out the part where they could also do less. They also have no information on what the DLC will entail, which I guess makes sense given that they’re trying to avoid “spoiling” even the base game. Stepping away from ways in which Bethesda wants more of your money, there’ll also be regular free updates to the game, as with Skyrim. While bug fixes are essential in a Bethesda game, we can also apparently expect new features, maybe even ones based on feedback from players: “We’ll work with all of you to figure out what new things you’d love to see added to Fallout 4,” they say.
