@Cardenas

i dont mean to sound like a d**k or anything but i find that very unlikely, i dont see 3 more major DLC packs being possible as they only have one season pass priced at 49.99 (euro) and the DLC so far adds up to 40.00 i can see them making one more DLC the size of far harbor and two smaller DLC and even at that they are loosing around 50% potential profit,

but if they where to add 9 more DLC like you suggest i dont see 6 of them being included in the current season pass i think they may be sold individually instead, or bethesda plan to release a second season pass which in my opinion would be awesome lol

but if im wrong and you are right ill be happy to have more fallout to mess around with Smile

I have to admit I did rush through it(But only so as to aleviate myself of worries of spoilers), but I have to say this is one of the best dlcs I've seen yet. It had all the story line and quests of a New Vegas dlc, but with the beautiful worlds that bethesda can create. Overall, it was a great experience and I reckon if Bethesda kept up with this sort of content, they will respark alot of interest in the game.

Luckily for you, I am porting all the content and landscapes from NV to FO4! Here, look at this picture! I think I've ported 90% of the game's content already. Enjoy!

I enjoyed playing it. Point Lookout v2.0 is not bad at all and it is right there next to the Automatron dlc. I was skeptical at first but turned out to be pretty good and thank god it was good lol. What got me even more interesting is that their is a backstory to Nick Valentine when he meets the synth from the trailer (wont say the name lol.) Overall, I recommended getting it and cant wait what Bathesda has for us in the next dlc.

It's pretty cool, I'm getting some Point Lookout vibes with it.

@BITBUT

It's a buy. The content is more than enough at the given price. The main quest is meh, but the side quests flesh out the world really well! Also, be careful going around buses split in two. Wink

My expectations have been exceeded so far. I didn't know what to expect, other than that it seemed to rehash a lot of ideas from Point Lookout. But there's a lot more going on and it expands on some of the concepts and philosophies that weren't given much attention in the main game. And so far it seems like the main conflict has four possible conclusions, but each with different conditions. I haven't completed it yet, because there's many more quests than I anticipated, but I'm actually hooked.

There was one really creative quest that I won't spoil, but it was definitely a surprise and one of the most interesting things anyone's done with Fallout. Unfortunately, I was plagued with performance drops (seems like those areas weren't fully optimized) and trying to rotate something was bugged so that it could only face one side. If those issues were fixed, then it'd have been way better, but it was still impressive and inventive.

A second quest, the most recent one I did, totally subverts your expectations and is one of the most comedic moments in the game. I warn people against spoiling themselves too much, lest they spoil themselves on this quest before they see it themselves.

The enemy designs are fantastic, particularly the Anglers and new Mirelurks. Every moment you're exploring the island is suspended above a fear that one of those things might show up. I've yet to discover the reason that there's a large population of Super Mutants on the island, which is my only complaint. I could do with less of them.

The new weapons and armor are some of my favorites. The Lever Action rifle is really fun, though no magazine upgrades exist. The new Marine armor eclipses the others in design and stats, although the larger, better helmet doesn't seem to cover the neckline like the lighter variant and makes things look odd. The Harpoon gun is a bit disappointing, because it doesn't have the impaling trait like the Railway Rifle.

There's also a couple of unique armor/clothing pieces that each increase your movement speed by 10 percent. Use them both and you get a 20% increase, which I bet would make Survival Mode much easier.

I think it's definitely worth the $25. It's bursting with enough content to be its own individual game. The atmosphere, the gameplay design, and story are all on par with some of New Vegas's content. Though I spent only $24 for the Season Pass, so my mindset is divorced from that of someone who's looking at either a full $25 or $50+ price. But if you had to get only one DLC for the game, this is definitely it.

I think my only major complaint about far harbor as a dlc has mostly to do with the statements that were made regarding it having more content than shivering isles. After having gone through far harbor, finished all the quests, explored all locations, i actually think shivering isles has more content overall. Also the lever action reload is the worst.

I feel like I'm one of the few that didn't enjoy it. I don't know exactly why, but I just didn't have any fun with it. And that certain part of the DLC that involves a computer, I went through that with disdain. Hated that bit...

Why did you even bother to get the season pass then? :\

I'm not sure what the overall thought of the DLC is, but I'm just gonna say it now...I love it. Even more than the main game. I love the story, the setting, the characters, and the loot. Oh my god the loot! It's perfect! We get great new armors, weapons, and the return of the lever action rifle! In my opinion the DLC exceed my expectations and honestly I find it difficult to go back to the commonwealth since I just love the island so much. Anyway, those are my thoughts.

I love the fact that Fallout 4's fans can't get enough of DLC to shit on.Literally.
It was awesome.People constantly complained that Fallout 4 was action game without story.
Even after Bethesda tried to focus whole DLC around lore and dialogue fans are ungrateful.

Far Harbor was a breath of fresh air.New area,armors,weapons and characters.
Location itself brought back vibes from Dishonored and F3's Point Lookout which is great.
How can you not love it?Three factions with both internal and external conflicts.You can't know who is right or wrong until you actually spend time with unlike the classic fallout 4.The whole plot about radioactive for and air was great.

Overall Far Harbor was great addition.

It gave us quite solid amount of new quests,creatures and great atmosphere.The whole dark and fog adds the character to island.Also greatly written characters.
But still looking trough the comments on different websites it seems that Bethesda can't make great DLC because each time fans shit on it.Even after this DLC.

Seems like community changed.Not war or game.
