Following yesterday’s announcement of the DLC plans for Fallout 4, the game’s Season Pass has seen a huge surge in sales therefore taking it to the top of Steam’s Top Sellers list.
Fallout 4’s Season Pass is now outselling the likes of Dark Sould III, Street Fighter V, XCOM 2 and The Division. However the reason for the surge of sales is down to the announcement that the Fallout 4 Season Pass will be rising in price from £24.99 to £39.99 on March 1 to reflect the amount of DLC heading to Fallout 4 in the coming months and beyond.
Anyone who purchases the Season Pass between now and March 1 will still receive all future DLC for Fallout 4 for just £24.99, therefore Fallout 4 owners are scrambling to grab the Season Pass at the reduced price before the increase takes place.
The three pieces of DLC which are coming in March, April and May cost over £30 altogether when bought separately, making the Season Pass excellent value for money, especially given the fact that more DLC is yet to be announced. Although once the price of the Season Pass does increase, it will still represent good value for money.
Fallout 3 had five add-on packs while Fallout New Vegas had four. Therefore it’s likely Fallout 4 will have at least four add-ons, with Far Harbor being the first one releasing in May 2016. Far Harbor will retail at £19.99 meaning that if there is a minimum of four add-ons, it will cost at least £80 therefore making the Season Pass very appealing.
