Fallout 4 Season Pass will increase to $50 on March 1st; is it worth it?

Bethesda is promising $60 worth of downloadable content for Fallout 4, which as a result, has increased the season pass price. Is it really worth it?


Bethesda announced its DLC plans for Fallout 4 today, but with that announcement came some important information regarding the pricing of its season pass. Starting on March 1st, the previously-priced $29.99 Fallout 4 season pass will jump up to nearly double that amount, to $49.99.

In a statement submitted to Shacknews, Bethesda explains the reason for the price increase is due to its “expanded DLC plan.” Thankfully, the publisher is offering some caveats. First, those who purchased the $29.99 season pass will not be asked for more money, which we think would be quite impossible to enforce anyway. Second, you’ll have the opportunity to purchase the Fallout 4 season pass at its original $29.99 price for the next two weeks as the price increase will go into effect starting March 1.

While the price increase will come as a surprise to fans of Fallout 4, you need to consider it will cover all downloadable content Bethesda ever does for the game. Fallout 4 isn’t the first game to ask for $50 for its season pass as the Call of Duty series and Star Wars Battlefront have aimed for that price point for its respective passes.

We don’t know how much DLC the $50 season pass will cover, although Bethesda says the amount of add-ons it plans on delivering for Fallout 4 will retail for around $60. In other words, Bethesda appears to be promising as much of an experience as a full retail game would, which we hope turns out to be true for Fallout 4. The game itself is worth its $60 price, so if Bethesda could offer double the experience, then we could be playing Fallout 4 for a long, long, long time.

      Ill wait for the GOTY edition. I barely remember buying Fallout as it is. Not worth it in my opinion. Unless they including a brand new engine. Id give money for that. I cant bare to look at this thing on my PS4.

        We do though, since they just told us, along with telling us that it'll remain cheaper than intended for another couple weeks.

        Bethesda has yet to disappoint with DLC. I see no reason to hesitate on this, unless you didn't like Fallout 4, of course.

          I enjoyed Fallout4. I'm interested in Far Harbor, but that's about it of the stuff announced so far. We'll see what they come out with.

      I ended up having to get the game on PS4. There is no season pass, at least not over where I am. :(

      I'll probably buy one or two pieces of DLC, but I doubt I'll get them all.
