Bethesda Details Next Fallout 4 DLC

Bethesda Details Next Fallout 4 DLC

Bethesda showed off Fallout 4's next DLC during its E3 2016 briefing today.

During its E3 2016 briefing tonight, Bethesda outlined its Fallout 4 DLC plans, which kick off next week with some additions to the Workshop.

Elevators, track kits, conveyer belts, sorting machines, and more will be making their way in the "Contraptions" Workshop update. In July, you will have the opportunity to build your own vaults with the "Vault-Tec Workshop," where you can also experiment on your very own dwellers.

Afterwards, Bethesda will release yet another update in the form of "Nuka World," aka post-apocalyptic amusement park, in August.

So are they trying to compete with Minecraft or something? The majority of the DLC for this game has been all about building things, with Far Harbor being the only meaty one with a new area and story to explore. Makes no sense...

All I'm hearing is "you loved Fallout 4 so much, we're not going to address the ridiculously low quality of our dialogue system".

They realized they are most successful not with high quality, deep Role-playing experiences, but rather with creating a pretty backdrop for people to make their own fun. They're just running with it at this point. Hell, the creative mods people make for Bethesda games have been half of the appeal, if not the majority of the appeal for some, since Oblivion at least. Also free marketing whenever someone does something super impressive with mods or just the base game's tools.
It makes a lot of sense, even if it does heavily imply they won't go back to having plots and writing at least as interesting as fallout 3 again, and almost certainly not new vegas, which is saddening. (Not that new vegas was the best written game ever or anything, but the triple A games of today certainly make it seem that way)

So, another DLC with 80% stuff that's already been added by mods. Oh well, making Rube Goldberg machines does look fun. No clue what use the conveyors/sorters will have. This isn't Factorio!

So I hope Skyrim HD will be a free update, since I am not going to pay for Skyrim a 3rd time.

PS: learned that HD will be free to Legendary owners, nice!

For the F4 mods - year pretty much ensured their game will live on forever. Giving the people the option but not enforcing
them to things in your game is pretty much nailed it.
Though it much less appeals to me, I have to say.

Yeah, sorry, but the WW DLCs should be free to anyone who bought the game. Those literally take the least possible effort on Beths part to make, and I'm waiting for one of their design team to straight rip off a mod when doing so. The idea that doubling the cost of the season pass was worth three WWs is ludicrous, to say the least. The only reason that Hearthfire was remotely acceptable was because Skyrim didn't really have a building mechanic at that point.

Oh boy. Skyrim remastered. Oh boy. Oh. Boy.
Christ, the fuck is this console generation? Machines are barely different, and the games can't even manage that, instead being re-release upon re-release upon re-release.
Guess we have to look forward to having Skyrim and Fallout 4 remakes for the next 10 years instead of actual new games.

Also nice to see that any illusion of roleplaying in Fallout has been stripped away.

These workshops are dumb. It's paid mods with no selection and a bunch of waiting. I'm not sure whether I should be glad that I bought the season pass early for cheap so I wouldn't have to pay so much for these, or sad that I validated it with a season pass.

I saw a tweet go out that PC people that owned Skyrim Legendary Edition or all Skyrim DLCs would get the remastered version for free anyway. How hard can you hate free?

I have no idea WTF to think about Nuka world. What even is this? Why are people running a themepark in the wasteland? "Build it and they will come?" Seems a bit optimistic.

Overall I've been pretty unimpressed with E3 this yeah. Feels moreso than usual at any rate.
Skyrim Remastered I saw coming a lightyear away, it's SKYRIM. The masses will gobble it up if you put in some new Godrays.

The Fallout 4 DLC... I've said my piece on Fallout 4 so I was going 'Eh, just Fallout 4 DLC'. Then the BUILD YOUR OWN VAULT thing showed up and somehow I became legitimately annoyed.
I think it didn't make sense to me, or I saw whatever remnants I saw of Fallout in Fallout 4 crumble away. It just seemed so dumb. Why and HOW would you make a vault now?
I don't get it.
Then there's Nuka World... Ehh, it's a theme park. Never thought a soda would get a theme park but there we have it. They gonna recycle Old World Blues or something? Like the whole Far Lookout. I mean Point Harbor. That thing.

I have to confess I'm a little disappointed with all of the building-related mods for Fallout 4, I've had a hard time with controlling the settlement creator and continue to find it somewhat pointless as well. I want to see new adventure packs to explore and loot, leave the building to the modders and such who are good at it.

As far as Nuka World goes, I'm guessing it was Fallout's version of Busch Gardens.

Damnit, Bethesda, enough sidetracking and delays. Quit messing with DLC and other junk and give us Elder Scrolls IV already!

But we already have an Eldar Scrolls IV: Oblivion!

Haha, whoops. Roman numerals fail. I meant, of course, Elder Scrolls VI.

Though I am intrigued by this "Eldar Scrolls" idea. An RPG set in the Warhammer 40k universe?

I'm moderately intrigued by Nuka World.
It will be weird for Ron in there, as he despises the taste of Nuka Cola, along with most pre-war foods. (If it doesn't expire, it must be hell on your digestive tract)
I have no interest in the workshop stuff though.

i am apparently the only person who actively enjoys building settlements and look forward to the workshop dlc additions.

as for nuka world.. its definitely perked my curiosity... side note i see mascots so yay get to kill mascots!!!!

All those things exist in mod form already, at the moment. Interesting that they're adding it in fully. Mods have for the most part, added in most/many objects in the game to the workshop interface. Still, more is better :)

I like the idea of building my own vault, but I'm not big on their settlement building mechanic. I just tend to spend a half-hour in Sanctuary on every character to make it passable for the first surge of settlers.

I did take up that Island for my isolationist sniper archetype, though.

Now we can debate on wether to call it FallCraft or MineOut.

We're calling it FallTorio and that's final.

I guess I'm the only one in this thread who is excited by Fallout's new DLC. I really liked the Settlement building system in the game, but always felt like it didn't have enough pieces to really make something your own, with all these DLCs adding new stuff to build, I can really have a lot of fun with it, and I am looking forward to creating some really fun settlements...

Oh and building a vault just sounds amazing!

i know what you mean 1100 hours and i would say 900 of those is building settlements.

im really curious about the contraptions dlc.. not sure what use i will get out of the track kits but the sorting and making stuff caught my eye.. can we mass produce weapons for example?
Definitely love the idea of the weapon and armour racks.. badly needed
