Fallout 4 is quickly approaching it’s November 10 release date. While Bethesda has been quite hush about the game’s story they announced on their website the first details on upcoming support and DLC for the game.
By far the most important thing announced was a Season Pass for DLC. The Season Pass will run at $30 and will give the players access to all DLC content created for the game. No release date was given for the first DLC but Bethesda maintains “it will start coming early next year.”
This is good news for fans of the studio. Their latest release, The Elder Scrolls: Skyrim, released two main story DLCs each adding about 8 hours to the game for $19.99. The previous game in the series, Fallout 3, received five paid DLC expansions including Broken Steel, which altered the game’s ending after a pour of fan outcry. Needless to say all these DLCs have been rated superbly and Fallout 4 looks to continue that tradition.
The ability to mod the game was also announced. Gamers on the PC will receive the Creation Kit for free coming early next year. While those playing on Playstation 4 and XBox One won’t be receiving a modding tool they will be receiving the same mods, coming to Xbox One first, then Playstation 4. The Creation Kit is said to be the same tool the studio uses.
As always with games of the series Fallout 4 will be receiving free regular updates to the game. Along with patches to fix bugs, new features will be added with these updates. Skyrim’s mounted combat feature and more were added through similar updates. Consumer feedback will be important to figuring out what kind of content to add so frequent commenters on the official forums may just see their ideas implemented.
These recent announcements just make gamers more anxious for the highly anticipated game. We’ll see if it lives up to the hype.
