New DLC has been announced for Fallout 4 (with a lot more to follow) and Bethesda has elected to up the charge of the Season Pass from USD $29.99 to $49.99 ($49.95 to $79.95 AUD). This is quite a big jump and is equivalent to the price of another game.
The good news though is that if you already have the Season Pass nothing changes and you’ll still get all the content. The second good bit of news is that the price hike won’t occur until March the 1st. It might be a good time to invest in the Season Pass in the next week and a half if you want to play Fallout 4 with all the extras.
Here is more detail on the first three DLC:

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 features the largest landmass for an add-on that we’ve ever created, filled with new faction quests, settlements, lethal creatures and dungeons. Become more powerful with new, higher-level armor and weapons. The choices are all yours.

This game is massive and hugely enjoyable. I still plan to release a review of this game on TheLateNightSession but it will be another month or two away.
