Fallout 4 has a season pass, but Bethesda doesn't know what's in it yet

Fallout 4 (opens in new tab) will have a season pass, but Bethesda isn't quite sure what will actually be in it. Whatever its downloadable contents include, the studio briefly laid out how it plans to support Fallout 4 after release in a post on Bethesda.net (opens in new tab).

The season pass will cost $30 and grant access to "all of the Fallout 4 DLC" Bethesda ever does. Bethesda says you can expect the whole bundle to be worth at least $40, judging by its expansion content for Fallout 3 and Skyrim, and that the first DLC will arrive early next year. What that DLC will be remains a mystery, since Bethesda says it's still heads-down on finishing up the main game.

And don't worry, Fallout 4 will still get a bunch of significant, free updates after it ships on November 10 - just like how Skyrim patched in Legendary Mode a year and a half after launch, Bethesda plans to talk to players to decide where the game should go from there.

Last but not least, you'll be able to start building your own mod-enriched future with the Fallout 4 creation kit early next year. Bethesda says it's the same tool that it's using to build the game, and as previously announced, mods will even appear on Xbox One (opens in new tab) and later on PS4.

Put all that on top of the fact that Fallout 4 won't have a level cap (opens in new tab) or a hard ending, and it sounds like we'll all be spending quite a bit of time in the Commonwealth. Better start building your Fallout 4 character (opens in new tab) now.
