First Fallout 4 DLC & Season Pass Price Increase Announced

Today Bethesda announced the first 3 pieces of DLC for their hit game Fallout 4. However, on the tail end of that announcement also came the news that the season pass price will increase on March 1st from the current $29.99 to $49.99. There is some good news about that though which is that anyone who buys the season pass at the current $29.99 price will still get all the content of the $49.99 priced season pass. The DLC announced today has a cumulative price of $39.97.

The first DLC add-on to be released will be called Automatron and will release for $9.99 US in March 2016.

FO4_Add-On_Pack_v8-auto_1000

Fallout4_DLC_Automatron01

“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!”

The second DLC to be released will be called Wasteland Workshop and will release for $4.99 US in April 2016.

FO4_Add-On_Pack_wasteland_workshop_1000

Fallout4_DLC_WastelandWorkshop02

“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!”

The third DLC to be announced today will be called Far Harbor and will release for $24.99 US in April 2016.

FO4_Add-On_Pack_far_harbor_1000

Fallout4_DLC_FarHarbor03

“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.”

They also stated that there are plans for even more DLC to come out this year with a total of over $60 worth of DLC coming out in 2016. While many are seeing it as a marketing ploy to increase the amount of times the season pass is purchased you have to admit that at least they’re doing it the smart way by announcing the increase at the same time as they announce DLC that adds up to more than the current season pass price. Far Harbor is the one that interests me the most but I’m still looking forward to the others to see what all they bring to the game.

Has this announcement today made you decide to go ahead and buy the season pass? Let us know in the comments.

Fallout 4 1.3 Patch Notes

Yesterday Bethesda announced here and posted here that the patch 1.3 for Fallout 4 has gone live for Xbox One and PlayStation 4 users and offers a variety of fixes and modifications to the gameplay that many gamers have been looking for. I’ll post my thoughts below the notes.

“The 1.3 update for Fallout 4 is available as an automatic download for Steam, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4 users.

The update has several new features – including PC-specific enhancements like our new ambient occlusion setting (HBAO+) – as well as new fixes for gameplay, quests, and Workshop Mode.

  • Dramatically increases object fading distance (console)

  • General memory and stability improvements
  • Improved performance when looking through a scope
  • Fixed issue where player could warp to a different location when aiming

Quest Fixes

  • Fixed an issue with “Taking Independence” where the minutemen remaining from the battle against the Mirelurk Queen would not gather in the Castle
  • Fixed an issue where invulnerable characters would get stuck in combat
  • Fixed an issue where Preston would send player to a settlement instead of a dungeon as part of a Minutemen quest
  • Fixed an issue where Synths could attack the Castle while the player was friends with the Institute
  • Fixed an issue where killing a caravan would leave a quest open
  • Fixed an issue where Dogmeat would stay at Fort Hagen after “Reunions” was completed
  • Fixed an issue where the player couldn’t talk to Desdemona to complete “Underground Undercover”
  • Fixed an issue where the player could get stuck exiting the cryopod
  • Fixed an issue where the player could no longer get Preston as a companion
  • In “The End of the Line,” fixed an issue that would prevent the player from killing the leaders of the Railroad
  • Fixed an issue with Minutemen quests repeating improperly
  • Fixed an issue where the player couldn’t get back into the Railroad headquarters after being kicked out of the Brotherhood of Steel
  • After finishing “The Big Dig,” fixed an issue where Hancock would no longer offer to be a companion or help with the “Silver Shroud” quest
  • Fixed an issue with obtaining the Dampening Coils from Saugus Ironworks before going to Yangtze
  • During “Unlikely Valentine,” fixed an issue where the player could be blocked from entering Vault 114
  • In “Confidence Man,” Bull and Gouger can now be killed
  • During “Taking Independence,” fixed an issue that would prevent the radio transmitter from powering up
  • In “Human Error,” fixed an issue where killing Dan would cause the quest to not complete properly
  • Fixed an issue with “Tactical Thinking” where leaving dialogue early with Captain Kells to reprogram P.A.M. could cause quest to not completely properly

Workshop Fixes

  • Fixed a bug that would cause settler counts to appear incorrectly
  • Fixed an issue that could prevent the player from setting up a supply line in settlements with a high population
  • Improvements to snapping pieces together while in Workshop mode
  • Fixed an issue that caused powered items to stop functioning permanently if its power source was ever removed
  • Player can now build workbenches in their Diamond City house
  • Building wires no longer uses up copper
  • Fixed issue with certain settlement attacks not generating properly
  • Fixed an issue with settlement happiness calculations
  • Settlers assigned to weapons stand will now stand next to it
  • Diamond City house now shows provided power
  • Repairing items will now correctly consume resources
  • Fixed an issue where companion would ignore commands at workshop locations
  • Fixed an issue with crops appearing destroyed after saving and reloading”

While I haven’t personally encountered any of the glitches yet I do hope that this takes care of all, or at least the majority, of my fellow gamers’ issues.

I personally am happy to see the modifications to the Workshop mode, such as being able to rotate items, as certain containers seemed to load sideways by default making it hard to tell what they looked like until after you placed them, and also being able to add work stations to the house in Diamond City.

What changes and/or fixes are you happiest to see?
