Fallout 4's Far Harbor DLC looks insane.

The trailer for Fallout 4′s upcoming expansion Far Harbor has been released, and it’s bonkers.

Ballistic submarines, World War II-era weapons, diving armor, and more! Don’t believe us? Check out our in-depth analysis below:



We don’t get much story information in the trailer, but there’s a lot to look at.

Here’s Far Harbor’s description from Bethesda:

“In Far Harbor, a new case from Valentine’s Detective Agency leads you on a search for a young woman and a secret colony of synths. Travel off the coast of Maine to the mysterious island of Far Harbor, where higher levels of radiation have created a more feral world. Navigate through the growing conflict between the synths, the Children of Atom, and the local townspeople. Will you work toward bringing peace to Far Harbor, and at what cost?

Far Harbor features the largest landmass for an add-on that Bethesda Game Studios has ever created, filled with new faction quests, settlements, lethal creatures and dungeons. Become more powerful with new, higher-level armor and weapons. The choices are all yours.”

Some of the highlights from the trailer are The Children of Atom worshipping a ballistic submarine, wielding WWII-inspired machine guns, and a bunch of new creatures. “Lies!” you say? See for yourself.

There will be new enemies at Far Harbor. This one met the new Harpoon Gun.


The size of Far Harbor seems impressive, though it shouldn’t come as a surprise. If Bethesda sticks with their scaling to real-world locations, it could be as large as the Fallout 3 map.

Fallout 4’s Far Harbor is schedule for release across consoles and PC on Thursday, May 19th. If you haven’t seen the original trailer, check it out in it’s unedited form below:
