Fallout 4 has only been out for a day and Bethesda has already revealed that they aren’t done yet, promising regular DLC updates throughout 2016. The post apocalyptic open world RPG received rave reviews across all of the major platforms, and while most gamers are still exploring the destroyed city of Boston, Bethesda is preparing to expand the universe with a series of downloadable expansions.
Bethesda has a long history of providing expansive downloadable content for their titles. Fallout 3, for example, had five DLC expansion, each featuring new items, quests, achievement and characters. Bethesda hasn’t yet revealed what areas would be expanded in the DLC, and Bethesda intends to design that content based on player feedback. Game director Todd Howard stated in an interview “Because what (the players) bring to it is really important; we’re going to see what people like, what they want more of, what they want different, and we’re going to do that.”
In a previous press release discussing potential DLC for Fallout 4, Bethesda promised that it would give players their money’s worth when they delivered paid downloadable content. Players can purchase a $30 season’s pass that will deliver all of the DLC that is made available, and Bethesda has promised that the total content will have at least a $40 value.
The paid DLC is only one portion of Bethesda’s plan to support Fallout 4 in the future. Bethesda has also assured players that there will be regular, free upgrades that will come in the form of fixes for bugs discovered during play through as well as new features.
