    Since Bethesda's most anticipated title is in the final stages of development, it was revealed that the long-awaited Fallout 4 will be getting a Season Pass, along with DLC following the release next year. The company plans on releasing regular updates that will focus on fixing bugs and other major issues, and of course regular updates to improve the overall quality of the game.

    First of all, let's talk about the most important component to this story. Fallout 4 will be getting regular updates that will be completely free of charge. They will "come with not just fixes, but new features." What could these updates consist of? Well, if Bethesda is taking the same route that they took with Skyrim, we will most likely see things such as kill cams, new game modes, and visual enhancements.

    In regards to paid DLC, Bethesda remains unsure as to what they want to do yet. However, if you're spending $30 on a Season Pass, you know you'll be getting something decent out of it. Paid updates will apparently begin rolling out next year, and "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."

    Finally, let's see what the studio has to say about modifications. "The most important thing in our games is the freedom you have to create your own experience, and modding is a big part of that. Like all our previous games, we’ve made sure to keep Fallout 4 open and moddable at every step in development," the blog read. Sometime next year, Fallout 4's Creation Kit will be coming to the PC, which will give players the amazing opportunity to create their own mods and share them with the Fallout community.

    What do you have to say about the Fallout DLC? What would you like to see come from it? Leave your opinions below.

    I'd probably buy the season pass for this game, soon as I'm a bit of a fallout freak. I absolutely loved Fallout 3 and Fallout NV and their DLC's, could spend hours on those games.

    It would be nice if they included a Season Pass for Pip-Boy Edition purchasers such as myself. If not, I know for sure I'd still invest in a season pass.

    Would be cool to go to new york or a city with lots of buildings and places to discover.

    Season passes are a waste of money, i learnt that with watchdogs, by time they decide to release a dlc you are already fed up of the game or are playing something else

      You mentioned getting fed up with the game, almost everyone has been fed up with watchdogs by now. But many (including myself) still thoroughly enjoy FO3 and NV.

      I enjoyed fallout 3, thats until i got to the end. I dont like to re-run games as i know whats coming next and it makes it feel too repetitive. You think, its took them 7 years to develop fallout 4, how long before we can expect the dlc, 3 years, 4 years....it just dont seem a sensible idea in buying the season pass
    4. Dead
      It won't take 3-4 years be realistic man.

    Season passes are a scam. The amount of money you save by the time each DLC comes out is negligible.

    Never really bought the season pass... might have to go for it when Fallout 4 comes out.

    I'll have to see how the game turns out, before buying this DLC.

      It's Fallout, it's obviously going to be good. lol

      I'm obviously going to enjoy the game, but I'm not going to drop my money on a DLC right away. I'll have to play the game before buying the DLC. lol

      The game has been in development for 5-7 years, it's got more potential than anything else announced.

    I'm more than willing to pay for bethesda DLC because I always feel it's worth it. With the amount of content fo4 is supposed to have it'll be crazy how much it will have after the dlcs are released.

      When talking about Bethesda DLCs I always think about the Horse Armor one. Yet that was one of their first DLCs (maybe even the first) and every other DLC they released since then was worth it to me. Even Hearthfire was a nice idea and executed well, although I first thought I wouldn't like that DLC.

    I agree with televisedfool. BGS does such a good job with their games that I actually enjoy when they talk about adding content after release because there's no doubt in my mind that they won't include hundreds of hours of content into the base game. It shows that they're not only confident in what they have already, but that they're not going to forget about their game just because it made X amount of money on its release date. Other game studios could definitely learn a lot from them.

      I think this will honestly be one of the best games released in the 2010's.

    I think they should have a co op part update if you want to play with a friend or trade. I dont mind a dog but I would like to experience the game with friends as well.
    1. Red58
      That would make it too easy, and it would probably kill texture quality and introduce lag.
    2. The Wangdoodle
      It wouldn't make the game easy. The game is already easy will an item sniffing dog already. Takes away from actually exploring. If you played with a real person instead of your k9, the enemies could be stroger and exploration with a buddy would be great. Yes, I agree with the lag, but a small price to pay.
