It seems that springtime is a lucky season for Fallout 4 fans. The Automatron DLC was released in late March, while the Wasteland Workshop DLC was launched in April. The latest DLC, called Fallout 4: Far Harbor, will be made available to PC, PS4, and Xbox One players in May.
Fallout 4 developer Bethesda has admitted that Far Harbor is the biggest post-launch content that they have made so far. Bethesda Softworks vice president Pete Hines revealed that, in terms of size, Far Harbor is bigger than Shivering Isles (which was an expansion of The Elder Scrolls 4: Oblivion). Fans of Fallout 4 and The Elder Scrolls will realize that this is a big deal, considering that Shivering Isles was the largest official expansion pack for TES 4.
So what can fans expect from Far Harbor? There’s no official word yet from Bethesda about the DLC’s features, but dataminers have unearthed some exciting discoveries about the game pack. Aside from the obvious fact that there would be an entirely new area to explore, the DLC comes with new items that players can build with, such as barns, warehouses, elevators, armor racks, and even conveyor belts. Players can also choose from new settlement options, go on exciting journeys, and encounter new creatures.
Eagle-eyed dataminers have also determined that the Children of Atom will be present in Far Harbor. For those who aren’t familiar with these characters, they’re a group of people who worship the atomic bomb in Megaton and attempt to convert all the non-believers who come their way by spraying them with radiation. There’s no word yet if players can join the Children of Atom, although it’s highly likely that they can.
Aside from having access to exciting new features, fans should also expect to run into a few difficulties. This shouldn’t come as a surprise since Fallout 4 DLCs seem to be no stranger to issues. Automatron, for instance, experienced problems with sound, crashes, freezes, frame rates, and robot customization, while Wasteland Workshop was plagued with issues about textures, buggy items, and other things. Far Harbor will hopefully be different from its older cousins and work perfectly right out of the box; if it won’t, players don’t haveto worry since Bethesda will most likely release updates to fix any issues, although it would take some time for the developer to do so.
Fallout 4: Far Harbor will be released sometime in May and will be available at $24.99.
