Bethesda has announced its plans for the launch of Fallout 4 and the months and years to come.
The first item Bethesda revealed was Fallout 4 will be getting a Season Pass. The company says this season pass will deliver “all of the Fallout 4 DLC we ever do,” which they expect to be available in early 2016. The season pass will cost $30, and even though it doesn’t know what it’ll offer yet, Bethesda says it will be worth at least $40 if they base it on work it did for Oblivion, Fallout 3, and Skyrim. If the company does more than what it expects, then Season Pass owners will be covered.
Bethesda plans on offering regular free updates to Fallout 4. These updates won’t just include fixes, but new features as well. The developer also plans on releasing a free Creation Kit for PC that will allow Fallout 4 to be moddable. The Creation Kit is the same tool Bethesda uses to work on Fallout 4, and once you create your own mods, you’ll be able to share them with PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One users.
While it's unsurprising at this point for a game as highly-anticipated as Fallout 4 to have a Season Pass, what we certainly appreciate is the promise it will cover all DLC Bethesda ever releases for the game. Both Evolve and Mortal Kombat X are guilty of having multiple season passes, while Destiny's season pass only covered two pieces of additional DLC. The promise of all DLCs for a single game is something we don't come across these days, and it's one we're thankful Bethesda is offering.

“all of the Fallout 4 DLC we ever do,” I'll believe it when I see it. The Oblivion GOTY edition didn't even have all of the DLC.
