Bethesda unveils Fallout 4: Lonesome Rhode DLC

When Bethesda finally detailed their DLC plans for Fallout 4, players were pleased to hear that there would be more content than initially planned, but they were understandably miffed that the price of the season pass would increase along with it. The question was whether or not the new, more ambitious, content would be worth the hefty $49.99 price tag. The biggest pack unveiled so far was Far Harbor, which Bethesda calls “the largest landmass” they’ve ever created for a DLC. But today, they revealed plans for an even more robust project, a 100% scale recreation of an entire state.

While Rhode Island might be the smallest US state, it’ll definitely be the largest DLC location ever created in a virtual world.

Bethesda’s Vice President of Public Relations, Howard M’aiq, unveiled the new DLC at a press conference this morning. “M’aiq knows many things,” stated M’aiq, “The Fallout 4 season pass will include two yet-unannounced DLC packs. First is Lonesome Rhode. The Sole Survivor will receive a mysterious message from fan-favorite character Ulysses, which will send the player on a dangerous quest through the Glowing Sea to the exotic land of Rhode Island. There, players will find a barren stretch of wasteland so desolate that not even feral ghouls will set foot upon its accursed soil.”

“This forlorn expanse, populated solely by decaying lighthouses and neglected roadside tourist attractions, has been re-imagined by Bethesda as a part of the Fallout universe” M’aiq continued, “Players can scavenge every bit of scrap from Pawtucket to Weekapaug and use it to build a lonely castle from which they might rule a tiny empire of empty wind and sands, where even the clams have long since died of despair.”

Also revealed at this morning’s press conference was the final piece of DLC for the game, To Del’ and Back. This recreates over one thousand miles of Interstate Highway 95, and spans the wasteland from The Commonwealth to the state of Delaware.

Fallout fans have been clamoring for driveable vehicles, and this DLC will finally allow players to drive their choice of five different vehicles on a ruined highway that runs from Boston, through the blasted wastes of New Jersey, all the way down to the capital city of Delaware, Wilmington. There, the ancient wonders of The First State will be revealed.

“M’aiq knows that players found more fusion cores than they needed in Fallout 4,” said M’aiq as members of the press gathered around a campfire made of cinder blocks in the woods behind Bethesda’s office, “So our vehicles will use fusion cores as fuel. Players who run out of fuel along the way will be able to walk back to New England in real time, scavenging for food and water, mile-by-mile, using the new survival mode.”

“M’aiq knows things others do not,” added M’aiq, “Lonesome Rhode will launch for all systems in November, and To Del’ and Back will arrive in early 2017, but M’aiq cannot confirm or deny Elder Scrolls VI  will launch by holiday 2017. M’aiq is tired now, go bother somebody else.”
