Fallout 4 will offer a season pass to players for a SRP of $30, Bethesda has today announced – although it doesn’t yet know exactly what the included DLC will entail.
Alongside the promise of “regular free updates” to the hotly anticipated post-apocalyptic action game post-launch, the developer has confirmed it will also release a significant amount of paid expansion content, totalling over $40 in value – though all of it will be available in the discounted season pass. It has pledged to “work with all of you to figure out what new things you’d love to see added to Fallout 4” when conceptualising potential DLC.
Bethesda also spoke of the importance of keeping its games open for players to customise, and so will be releasing a free Creation Kit for PC early next year to allow users to create their own mods and share them online. These mods will eventually find their way onto Xbox One and PlayStation 4.
In an official update on the hotly anticipated game’s development, a statement from the studio reads:
“We’ve always done a lot of DLC for our games. We love making them and you always ask us for more. To reward our most loyal fans, this time we’ll be offering a Season Pass that will get you all of the Fallout 4 DLC we ever do for just $30. Since we’re still hard at work on the game, we don’t know what the actual DLC will be yet, but it will start coming early next year. Based on what we did for Oblivion, Fallout 3, and Skyrim, we know that it will be worth at least $40, and if we do more, you’ll get it all with the Season Pass.”
Fallout 4 is scheduled to release on November 10, 2015 for PC, Xbox One and PlayStation 4.
