Downloadable content has been rolling out for Fallout 4 since the “Automatron” add-on in March, but later this month comes the biggest so far: “Far Harbor,” the game’s first proper expansion. “Far Harbor” introduces a brand-new location — which developer Bethesda claims is the “largest landmass” it has ever added to a game — and a new case for everyone’s favorite synthetic detective Nick Valentine.
Here is the official story synopsis:
“In Far Harbor, a new case from Valentine’s Detective Agency leads you on a search for a young woman and a secret colony of synths. Travel off the coast of Maine to the mysterious island of Far Harbor, where higher levels of radiation have created a more feral world. Navigate through the growing conflict between the synths, the Children of Atom, and the local townspeople. Will you work towards bringing peace to Far Harbor, and at what cost?”
Far Harbor includes more quests to take on and settlements to explore. There are also “lethal” creatures, some of which you can see in the trailer above. The expansion also adds “higher-level” armor and weapons, though no specifics have been announced yet.
The content sells for $25 and is also included with the $50 Fallout 4 DLC pass. The first Fallout 4 expansion was Automatron, which came out in March. This was followed up by Wasteland Workshop in April.
Far Harbor releases on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC on Thursday, May 19.
