Next week is shaping up to be a pretty good week in the gaming world. With an update from Destiny as well as Tom Clancy's The Division, and now an announcement from Bethesda stating the release date for Fallout 4's upcoming DLC Wasteland Workshop. The DLC is set to come out on April 12th for Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC, and the price for non-season pass holders is a minuscule $5. Wasteland Workshop will allow players to add onto their already massive settlements, with new and improved elements and add-ons, such as being able to capture estranged creatures roaming around the ruins of what was once a popular Boston city. You can then choose to either tame the beasts you catch for your own personal use, which range anywhere from raiders, to the almighty Deathclaw, or have them do a free for all battle against each other or enemies that you need to kill. You can check out the trailer for the upcoming DLC below:
Not only can you capture beasts, you can now customize your settlement even further with the new "suite of design options." From nixie tube lighting to letter kits, and even taxidermy, there's so much more players can do with their settlements. More is outlined in the trailer above, but overall it's a nice touch for players who enjoy building their settlements from top to bottom and to the best of their ability.
The next DLC set to release for Fallout 4 will come next month, Far Harbor, which is set to be the largest landmass Bethesda has ever released in a DLC-like format. The setting is set in a post-apocalyptic version of the infamous Bay Harbor in Maine. That specific DLC alone will be $25, however, players that have the season pass will receive the add-on for free. The season pass for Fallout 4 is currently priced at $50.
That's not all the content that will be released for Fallout 4, however. Bethesda themselves has told fans to "stay tuned and be on the lookout", as there will be more add-ons to come this year. One of which will be the supposed Creation Kit for the PC. This will allow players to create more mods for the game, and release them to the public. It will also allow for some of these mods to be transferred over to the next generation consoles.
