Bethesda today revealed its plans for upcoming Fallout 4 add-ons and also broke the news that the price of the Season Pass is to go up.

If you've seen all there is to see and done all that there is to do in Fallout 4's Wasteland, you'll be pleased to hear that Bethesda has more content in store for you. It revealed today that three new add-ons are to be released in the next three months.

Automatron is the first add-on, coming in March. In it, the mysterious Mechanist releases a horde of evil robots into the Commonwealth. You'll hunt them down and then use their parts to create your very own customisable robot companion. There are hundreds of mods to choose from, according to Bethesda, as well as a lightning chain gun.

The Wasteland Workshop will be released in April, allowing you to construct cages that can be used to capture live creatures, from raiders to Deathclaws. You can tame what you capture and even pit them against one another, or your settlers, in combat.

Finally, Far Harbor is due out in May. Bethesda says that this is the largest landmass it has created for an add-on. It features new faction quests, settlements, creatures and dungeons, as well as new higher level armour and weaponry. In the add-on, players travel to the island of Far Harbor to search for a young woman and a lost colony of synths. You'll face a "more feral world" as well as an ongoing battle between the synths, the Children of Atom and the locals.

Bethesda has even more DLC to release later in 2016, but this should be enough to keep Fallout 4 fans occupied for a little while. As it has expanded its DLC plans, it is also upping the cost of the Season Pass from March 1st. This change won't affect those who have bought it already, but if you're going to grab your fill of Fallout 4 DLC, you may want to purchase the Season Pass ahead of its price increase.
