You read that right dear reader, the price of the Fallout 4 Season Pass is about to go up from $29.99 to $50.
Why? You’re probably asking, well pull up a chair and I’ll let you know.
When Fallout 4 was just getting ready to be released Bethesda announced the Season Pass for $29.99. We the fans asked, “What is it going to contain?” Bethesda just shrugged and said “um, we’ll figure it out.”
Well they’ve figured it out, well most of it. Yesterday three new DLCs were announced, Automatron, Wasteland Workshop, and Far Harbor. The three DLCs on their own will be priced $9.99, $4.99, and $24.99 respectfully. Automatron will be the first to come out and it will be in March.
The reason for the increase in the price for the Season Pass is because (according to Bethesda) after listening to the fans what they came up with was going to cost more than they had originally thought. However, if you already bought the $29.99 Season Pass you’re not going to be required to shell out another $20.
So what are we getting for our money?
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.
If you add all that up together that’s $40 and I’m sure you’re asking, why would I pay $50 for $40 worth of content. Well the good news there is more DLC on the way in 2016. So if you act now you can still get the season pass for $29.99. If the descriptions of the DLC coming out appeals to you then this would definitely be worth it.
