It seems like Bethesda is preparing to close the book on Fallout 4 DLC’s with the upcoming release of the story-driven DLC, Nuka World. The Vice President of Public Relationsions and Marketing at Bethesda, Pete Hines, replied to a Tweet just earlier today revealing that the August release of Nuka World will be the ‘last one’.

Nuka World was only recently announced at E3 2016 last month. So far, not much is known about the pack except that it will let the player explore a new amusement park region and offer them the choice to lead bandit raids across the Commonwealth. The description reads as:
Take a trip to Nuka-World, a vast amusement park now a lawless city of Raiders. Explore an all-new region with an open wasteland and park zones like Safari Adventure, Dry Rock Gulch, Kiddie Kingdom, and the Galactic Zone. Lead lethal gangs of Raiders and use them to conquer settlements, bending the Commonwealth to your will. Nuka-World features new quests, Raiders, weapons, creatures, and more. Enjoy the ride!
Set for an August release, it tops off the Fallout 4 list of DLC as a total of only two story driven additions along with four minor game content. However, compared to its predecessors, six DLC seems to be a typical, if not above average, lifespan for a Fallout game. Where official content may be lacking for some players, the Bethesda.net mod portal makes it possible to customize and add to the game for both PC and Xbox One versions.
Fallout 4 Nuka World will be sold separately for $19.99 or as a set in the $40 Fallout Season Pass, increased from its previous price to accommodate the additional content. For those players that bought the pass after the price was increased, this is an infuriating let down that has left many of them scorned.
