Fallout 4 DLC adds detective stories, DIY robots, pet Deathclaws & a price hike

Finally, WORD FROM BETHESDA ON FALLOUT 4 DLC. Sentences like that need to end in all caps. There are three add-ons outlined initially, with more to come later. You can also sign up to play them early in beta testing.

But there's a downside to getting extra - the season pass price will be going up, from $29.99 to $49.99 or £24.99 to £39.99. If you've already bought it then you're in the clear, and will still get everything. Plus the price won't increase until March 1st, so there's still time to get it all cheap(er). After that date you'll be paying the higher price.

There's no outline yet on what the extra stuff is, other than Bethesda think it's worth the cash. On top of that there's also more free stuff planned, so things like the weapon debris updates on PC and the improved draw distances on console. There's also a big Survival Mode overhaul on the way. In terms of playing any of this stuff early you'll have to sign up here to join the beta program.

This is what's coming:

"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!"

"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!"

"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."
