"Fallout 4," which was released on November 10, along with "The Rise of the Tomb Raider" is set to have DLC coming soon. The alleged release date is early 2016, so fans need not wait that long.

Bethesda, the company behind "Fallout 4," is said to have plans of releasing the first wave of DLC soon. No specific date has been mentioned, but the end of March seems to be the valid date. 

According to N4BB, even though Bethesda has not officially released what the possible content of the new DLC would, educated guesses can be made according to past releases. Logically, there will be new missions that players have to complete and rewards for successful completion - new weapons, armor, or more other thrilling perks. Players can also expect new maps to explore as well as new partners to play with around the Commonwealth. 

Allegedly, the release of this downloadable content will be followed by more DLC packs. Game director Todd Howard himself shared that multiple expansion packs may be released continuously into 2016. 

Bethesda also makes it easier for interested gamers to purchase the DLC. The company created a season pass that allows players to have access to all of the DLC for just $30. This is a discounted price already as the original price will be set at $40. Gamers across consoles can enjoy this pass whether they use the Xbox One, Playstation 4, and Steam. 

Crave Online reported that players can also experience an underwater world on the next DLC. 

"Fallout 4" is indeed one of the most popular games out there right now, so much so that Bethesda is currently facing a lawsuit now by a Russian gamer who lost both his wife and job because of his addiction to the game. The Russian man, 28, said he got intensely hooked on the game that he played it three weeks non-stop, to the ire of his friends, wife, and employer. 

RT reported that the man incurred more absences that appropriate on his workplace and got fired because of this. His friends became worried because he stopped meeting them. His wife ultimately left him because of his addiction. His health also took a turn for the worse, since he was rarely sleeping and eating. "If I knew that this game could have become so addictive, I would have become a lot more wary of it," he said. "I would not have bought it, or I would have left it until I was on holiday or until the New Year holidays." The Russian man wants Bethesda to compensate him for $7000 because of the emotional distress he suffered.
