‘Fallout 4: Far Harbor’ Gets a Release Date and a New Trailer

Matthew Hadick

A trailer teasing the newest Fallout 4 expansion, “Far Harbor,” has been released, and it’s safe to say we’re very excited. Scheduled for release on May 19, the game will have players heading to the fictional island of Far Harbor, located off the coast of Maine, to work with the Valentine Detective Agency to find a hidden colony of synths.

Check out the trailer below:

Beta invites for the game will be released this week, so keep your eyes peeled on your email inboxes.

Here are some things that caught our eye in the trailer:

Diving Suit
DivingBell

A suit of marine armor, fashioned after an old-timey diving bell, will make its debut in Far Harbor. This probably means that the game will feature extensive underwater combat. We also saw an enormous hook that can be used as a melee weapon underwater; we’re guessing there will be some kind of underwater harpoon gun, as well, since one was found in the game’s files last year, and PC users have already modded it into the game.

Mutated Fish

FarHarborFish

The mutated fish featured in the trailer already have us shaking in our diving boots. The glowing rod sticking out their head makes them terrifying but easy to spot. We can’t wait to see what kind of enemies “Far Harbor” has in store, especially during the underwater sequences. I mean, there is also that terrifying mutated dolphin carcass found in the main game.

What’s up with Nick?

NickValentine

Is this scarred synth Nick Valentine? What on earth happened to the guy? What is going on here? Should we be terrified?

The Children of Atom

The Children of Atom are at it again, seemingly starting some kind of holy war against a small swamp town. They seem to be camping out in some kind of military base in the trailer.

Fallout 4 “Far Harbor” will be available May 19 for Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC.  Season Pass owners will automatically have access to the download. Otherwise, you’ll have to pony up $24.99 — which, given the amount of promised content, doesn’t seem so bad.
