Why You Should Buy the Fallout 4 Season Pass Now

Fallout 4 publisher Bethesda laid out plans for the game’s downloadable content in a post on its website, and those plans include a price increase for the Fallout 4 season pass.
Beginning with “Automatron” in March, Bethesda will release three separate DLC packs that the publisher says will add “more than $60 worth” of content to the game. For that reason, Bethesda is raising the price of the Fallout 4 season pass from $29.99 to $49.99 effective March 1. If you previously purchased the season pass or decide to buy it before March 1, you will still get access to all future content for the game. Each DLC pack can also be purchased individually.
“Automatron,” the first of the planned content additions, will release in March for $9.99. The expansion pack will add the ability to harvest parts from robots to build custom robots of your own.
The second DLC for Fallout 4 will be “Wasteland Workshop.” It is expected to launch in April at a cost of $4.99. Users who own this content will be able to design cages to trap enemies, which can then be tamed to face off in battle.
“Far Harbor” is the third DLC Bethesda announced. This large expansion will launch in May and cost $24.99. In this expansion, players will travel off the coast of Main to a secret colony on Far Harbor. It will include new faction quests, settlements, creatures and dungeons, plus new high-level armor and weapons.
A closed beta will run before the release of each of the three DLC packs. Players can request to be part of the beta now on Bethesda’s official website. Those who are accepted into the closed beta will receive all expansions at no charge.
Raising the price of the season pass is disappointing, but Bethesda is offering some good will toward gamers by allowing them to purchase the season pass at its current price through March 1. If you are an avid Fallout player, you will want to make sure to buy the season pass now before the price increase. If you miss out now, you might be able to take advantage of discounts in the future.
