Fallout 4 DLC Won’t Be Out Until 2016, But For Good Reason

Looking forward to Fallout 4 DLC? It will take a while before it comes out, but there’s a good reason for that.

Bethesda revealed they will actually base the DLC on fan feedback. As director Tom Howard explains:

This game is huge, but it’s not just this launch,” Howard said. “It’s going to be well deep into next year. It’s like the game is done [does air quotes] but it’s not done, because until everybody plays it, it’s not really done. 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.

Since they’ll need time to collect this information and work on it, Bethesda has already declared the DLC won’t be coming up until 2016. Bethesda has already promised they will be delivering $ 40 in value, and sell it for a maximum of $ 30. This is aside from the requisite bug fixing patches, as well as free new features.

Fallout 3 had five paid DLC expansions, each with new quests, items, achievements, and more. How do you feel about Bethesda’s approach this time? Share your thoughts with us in the comments.
