Fallout 4’ DLC Coming Out Next Year - Bethesda

4.6
Fallout 4 is on fire breaking records and even parts of the Internet. Todd Howard, Fallout 4 game director, continues to fan those flames, teasing a post-launch expansion pack.

Surpassing previous sales records and even causing drastic drops in traffic to popular adult video websites, Fallout 4 will no doubt continue to make waves with its first upcoming downloadable content (DLC), which has many gamers eagerly anticipating its release early next year.

Because the game was just launched, Bethesda wants players to explore Fallout 4's expansive Commonwealth first before its developers finalize what gets included in the game's expansion packs.

The previous game in the series, Fallout 3, eventually had five paid DLC expansions released after its initial launch. Operation Anchorage, The Pitt, Broken Steel, Point Lookout and Mothership Zeta all came with achievements, items, new quests and more. We pretty much expect the same treatment for Fallout 4, but hopefully with a nugget or two of never-before-seen additions.

For Fallout 4, Bethesda is taking on a different approach in its development of the game's DLCs. The company will consider feedback from the game's players and will be monitoring what players like and dislike so it can shape future updates and content for DLCs all based on what the fans want.

"Because what they 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," Howard said of fans, adding, "Our fans are amazing; they're super-smart. This is important to them, just like it is to us."

On the flip side, however, some players are doubting Bethesda's strategy with Fallout 4's DLCs. The company already received flak for taking preorders for the game's DLCs even though there haven't been any concrete plans on what kind of gameplay the expansion packs would even include. Now divergent members of the Fallout 4 community suspect they will be treated as guinea pigs for bugs, glitches and content gaps.

Regardless of this skepticism, Bethesda says they will be delivering $40 worth of value in a $30 package with Fallout 4's DLC. Aside from the paid content, the company als promised a number of free upgrades and additional features for fans to make use of in Fallout 4's post-apocalyptic world.

platyui You could play this game for months and not find everything in it. The DLC's are the same way if they are like Fallout 3 DLC's


My Friend Is Level 50+ Has Every Achievement For The Game.He's been at the point he can't get any misc missions etc. He's bored of the game lol.


And he only got to a bit over level 50? Then he's most definitely not done everything.


Nope, the math looks about right. I am a low 20 level and I completed about 40% of the game.

Well i don't know if that 40% counts for questline or what but he's probaly doubting because there's tons of missions todo after the main quests. If he doesn't mean that then yeah, i think he beat the game around 35-40. I know he beat it in like 24 hours of game time.
