Fallout 4 DLC Teased, Will Continue "Well Into" 2016

"Our fans are amazing; they're super-smart."


Fallout 4 game director Todd Howard has offered a tease for the game's upcoming expansion packs. Speaking during a red carpet interview with Red Carpet Report (via GameZone), Howard said the direction Bethesda takes with the game's multiple expansion packs will be shaped by fan feedback.

"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."

Howard added: "Our fans are amazing; they're super-smart. This is important to them, just like it is to us."

Fallout 4's DLC was announced back in September, before the game was even released. At the time, Bethesda said it didn't know what form the expansions would take, only that they would deliver $40 of value in a $30 package. The first of these expansions will be released in 2016.

By comparison, Bethesda released five paid DLC expansions for Fallout 3. These were Operation Anchorage, The Pitt, Broken Steel, Point Lookout, and Mothership Zeta. They all came with new quests, items, achievements, and more. You can probably expect the same from Fallout 4's DLC.

Fallout 4 launched on November 10 for Xbox One, PS4, and PC. For more, check out GameSpot's review and what other critics are saying.
