Far Harbor launches on May 19 for all platforms. It's included with Fallout 4's $50 DLC pass or can be purchased by itself for $25.

The expansion is set in a post-apocalyptic version of Maine's Bar Harbor. It represents the largest landmass that Bethesda has ever created for a piece of add-on content. Players can expect new quests, weapons, creatures, and more. Check out some concept art in the galley above.

"Far Harbor will take you on a journey that's a far cry from the Commonwealth," Bethesda said.

"There's still a ton we haven’t even talked about yet," designer William Shen added. "There are definitely some very cool surprises as you progress through Far Harbor."

Looking ahead, Fallout 4 mods are coming to Xbox One this month, while PS4 players will get them in June. Additionally, Bethesda has told fans to "stay tuned" for more information about further add-ons coming later this year.

Not a big fan of the setting.. looks hard to see and navigate. All waterlogged and misty.. meh. Wish/Hope Bethesda does an expansion that goes back to a more desert setting. Also please dial back the damn weather .. I seriously sleep in the game for clear days.

Too much fog. Too much radiation for my liking. Lol! Unique and new legionary drops were nice. Some funny acted out scenes and dialogues, I don't want to give that away but a few had me laughing. The map is good sized and you are forced to choose alliances and sides so that affects your ending. It's worth it.

You can get it right now on Xbox if you change your region to New Zealand. And no, doing so isn't against the ToS.

damnit.... I restarted on Survival (as its the only way to play, imo) and I'm nowhere close to completing the original game or the 1st DLC, let alone ready to tackle Far Harbour..... ah 1st world problems

@whatsazerg: Just got to level 30 in survival, now I think I can set foot in downtown boston without being murdered instantly by a super mutant. My only complaint with survival is the respawn rates. The upper half of the map is just empty now, I can understand for loot purposes but their should still be random encounters to keep things interesting, I feel to safe now.

Looks like something a group of modders could have achieved in a couple weeks.

Can't wait. I like the last expansion where you could build a robot. I still didn't finish the main quest, trying to finish every possible side quest before I finish the game!
