Just when you thought you'd exhausted the Wasteland of all its hidden gems...

Bethesda has lifted the lid on the first DLC expansion for the wildly successful Fallout 4 - announcing not one but three add-ons. 

Automatron, Wasteland Workshop and Far Harbor (see the gallery for details) will add new stories, regions and content to the game, before more yet-to-be-announced DLC arrives later in the year.

You can pick up the add-ons individually, or buy a season pass for the full whack (set to increase from £24.99 to £39.99 by 1 March, you'll want to get it before the price increase).

Bethesda has also stated it's looking to overhaul the Survival Mode, changing the way in which you play the game, and produce a Creation Kit for PC gamers, allowing people to produce their own mods for free.

Looks like you won't be picking up a new game for a while yet...
