Unless you’ve been hiding under a rock or living in a vault, then you’ll know that Fallout 4 was recently released. For what is already an enormous game, the news of further expansion throughout 2016 is exciting news for fans of the franchise.

In an interview Fallout’s director Todd Howard gave a little insight of their plans for DLC, stating that there will be continued content “going well deep into next year”. As of yet there hasn’t been any specifics about what the content will include or how it will link to Fallout 4’s current story.

He also goes on to say that fan’s feedback and opinions will play a big part when it comes to decisions about DLC. This means that although Fallout 4 has already been well received by the gaming community, next years added content will give players elements of the game they feel it lacks.

Much like many other games these days there is the option to pay for a season pass, which means your one payment will get you each new DLC pack when it’s released. You could buy each one separately but the benefit of the season pass is that if you add them all up you’ll be saving money overall.

It’s pretty safe to assume that Fallout 4 will have just as much DLC as previous games, if not more. When you consider that Fallout 3 had five added DLC packs, and Fallout: New Vegas had six – 2016 will be an exciting year for players who’re eager to see what’s next for Fallout 4. Especially now that the game has the option to create your own settlement, which opens up a wide-range of new directions for the developers to take when they create new content.

Fallout 4 was released on the 10th of November with the first DLC likely to be arriving early in 2016, and continuing on throughout the year.
