Fallout 4’s Far Harbor is coming on May 19

Farharbor

I liked Fallout 4. Boston’s wasteland was a joy to explore, and I had a blast putting together guns, taking them apart and cobbling new ones from their bits and pieces. I didn’t love it though, and I doubt that history will look back at Fallout 4 with same reverence as it has on pretty much all of the other Fallout games.

What it will be fondly remembered for though, is the excellent post-launch support that Bethesda’s given the game, both free and paid. The challenging survival mode is live on PC, and official modding support is headed to consoles – all at the lovely cost of not a damned thing.

The paid DLC has been pretty good too. The first, Automatron, lets you tinker with robots, but hasn’t really changed the way the game plays much. The second DLC is far more interesting –as it actually ads a substantial chunk to the game.

Here’s what it’s all about:

“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?”

As nick Valentine was one of my favourite characters in Fallout 4, I’ll be watching this with a keen eye.

Far Harbor new faction quests, settlements, creatures and dungeons with new higher-level armor and weapons. It’s coming to Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC on Thursday, May 19.

Here’s a look.

    Well you do not see this harbor on the vanilla map, so I can understand why its a far harbor.

    I’m really starting to prefer indie games, most of them sell the whole game to you. You play it, finish it and move on. AAA games with their DLC is like that one friend that comes back once a month to borrow more money.

      Indie games like No Man’s Sky, or Indie games like Broforce?

            What kind? The witch’s kind, or the yummy chicken kind used in curries, soups and stews?

          I’m still in awe that a team of 12 individuals made No Man’s Sky…. Star Citizen has over 300+ and it’s still struggling to get a proper release date XD

            LOOOOOOOOOOOOL

            And No Man’s Sky didn’t have hundreds of millions of dollars to play with either.

            And I’ll get to play it in a month or so.

            Star Citizen. LOL.

            I bet some people have already retired with the money made from working on Star Citizen

            So you mean their great grandkids will be able to retire on the money?

            May 5, 2016 at 08:50

            They can retire twice too

            May 5, 2016 at 08:50

            Yeah, but they probably won’t be able to afford the best ships

            Yeah but they might end up finishing the development of the game, so that’s nice.

            I still love it, even with the performance issues in some areas, still a great game…

            It is huge fun , but the bugs while playing online gets too much at the moment, when I have to restart a game more than 3 times in an hour I am out.

          • Greylingad[He Charges!]

            May 5, 2016 at 09:11

            Yeah, that does annoy me too, but then again, I mostly play offline and I’ve had a few kicks…

            Technically not DLC as it’s standalone.

          • Greylingad[He Charges!]

            May 5, 2016 at 09:08

            That is true!

      It is growing on me slowly, AlienNation is pretty good and if I take that versus the rugby game I played against you the Indie people are light years ahead 😛

      This^!

      The funny thing is that even if the indies were to break up their games into little bits, they’d still be complete at the end of the whole thing, AAA’s, even with their Multi Billion Moola budgets can’t do that, because they have way too much corporate to please…
