The Wasteland Workshop also includes a suite of new design options for your settlements like nixi tube lighting, letter kits, taxidermy and more!
Release: May 2016
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 have also announced that the Season Pass will increase from £24.99 to £39.99 as of March the 1st 2016. The Season Pass will give access to DLC worth £45, which includes the above listed DLC as well as more, un-announced content.
Players who have already bought the Season Pass don’t need to worry as they will not be charged any extra and will still get access to all of the promised content. Any one interested should probably get hold of it before the 1st of March while the price is still lower.
Bethesda are also offering players a chance to access the add-ons early with a closed beta. Players are able to sign up as of now at Bethesda.net – Players will need to crate an account and Bethesda will select applicants within the next few weeks. Any successful candidates will receive a code for the full version of the DLC; complete with achievements.
