Fallout 4 DLC Release Schedule and details!

Alright Raiders, wasteland saviors, and post-apocalyptic detectives, let us take a look at what is to come in the commonwealth.
Since Fallout 4 launched, we have seen some of the best creations of our fellow wasteland survivors, and it seems that Bethesda has been blown away by the support for the game. As it stands, Fallout 4 is their most successful title ever and that couldn’t have happened without us, the gamers. Now it’s time to share with you some of what Bethesda has cooking. Given the expanded DLC plan that Bethesda has in the works, the price of the season pass is well worth every penny. The price has just increased from the current $29.99 to $49.99, however, if you already purchased the season pass for $29.99, nothing changes – you still get everything at no additional cost— the full $60 bevy of DLC for the original price of $29.99. 
​More importantly, we as gamers should all know that content is king, and this is only the beginning and Bethesda has plans for much, much more. More than $60 worth of new Fallout adventures and features will be released throughout 2016. Including free updates, mod creation kits, and play modes. I'm happy to bring you the dirty details.

DLC #1: Automatron
Price: $9.99 USD
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!  

DLC #2: Wasteland Workshop
Price: $4.99 USD
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 nixie tube lighting, letter kits, taxidermy and more!

DLC #3: Far Harbor
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 they have 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.

    Beyond add-ons, we’ll continue to see free updates to the game, including new features like the recent weapon debris for PC, increased draw distances for consoles, as well as more optimizations to gameplay and quests. Something that I'm really excited about is the complete overhaul of Survival Mode that changes how you play the whole game: food, sleep, diseases, danger and more. Bethesda has also been hard at work on their Creation Kit, which will allow you to create and play mods absolutely free.  There is also the Survival Mode to come about in later updates, both of these free updates can be beta-tested, along with all of the scheduled DLC content if you go to and create an account.  
So there you have it, I know it is not much and due to the nature of Bethesda and their attraction to mystery, we may not know till the last minute.  So if you get the chance, buy the season pass and be ready to explore at a moments notice.  
Good luck out there in the Commonwealth friends, and may your critical shots always cause a bloody mess!
