Bethesda Game Studios officially declares that Fallout 4‘s forthcoming Nuka World DLC is the last expansion pack set to release for the post-apocalyptic RPG.
Typically, Bethesda is known for providing lengthy support for its releases post-launch with additional content, and as many fans of the studio will probably attest, Fallout 4 is no different when it comes to the company’s practice of extending its titles’ lives. Nevertheless, it seems as if the gravy train of add-ons and expansions for the post-apocalyptic RPG will soon be making its last stop once the game’s Nuka World DLC arrives in August, as Bethesda’s Vice President of PR and Marketing, Pete Hines, has declared it to be the “last one.”
As seen in the tweet below, a fan asked Hines on his official Twitter account whether or not theFallout 4 community should expect any more DLC packs beyond Nuka World, which prompted the Bethesda executive to state that there are no more planned after its release. Just before the last expansion becomes available, though, fans will be privy to purchase the Vault-Tec Workshop add-on this month, which is the second of three DLC packages for Summer 2016.
Of course, Fallout 4 fans aren’t being left in the lurch entirely, as Bethesda will surely provide updates and bug fixes for the title well after Nuka World officially goes on sale. Not to mention, per the expansion’s description, it seems as if the studio is sending the game off with a bang, as it will allow the Sole Survivor to become a Raider in an amusement park with fresh areas like “Safari Adventure, Dry Rock Gulch, Kiddie Kingdom, and the Galactic Zone.” Plus, as is to be expected, Nuka World is going to provide fresh content like “new quests, Raiders, weapons, creatures, and more.”
Naturally, not many would have expected Bethesda to continue providing DLC to Fallout 4 beyond 2016, especially since Bethesda has two new and untitled games in the works that supposedly rival both Skyrim and Fallout 4 in size. With that being the case, Nuka World should provide fans with a solid cap-off to all of the official expansions offered from the developers thus far.
Additionally, once Nuka World comes out and players inevitably complete all that the DLC has to offer, fans can always get their fill of even more additional materials with Fallout 4‘s bevy of mods. After all, Bethesda is attempting to have the Creation Kit running at an optimal level for the modding community to use for PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One by the end of the year.
So, if the now-delayed PS4 mods beta becomes successful and developers also increase the size limits for mods on consoles without sacrificing gameplay performance, Bethesda will hopefully have all of the kinks worked out for the recently introduced concept of developer-supported mods so that players on all platforms can make their own Fallout 4 fun. If anything, should mods only go on to cause fans more strife in the future, they can pick up the game’s Contraptions Workshop pack to create elaborate machines that will help them take out their frustrations on NPCs.
Fallout 4 is out now and is available for PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One.
