We’re going back to Bahston, to Pahk the Cah in Haavahd Yahd. Yes. Bethesda is really on point with their DLC, with another impressive looking expansion coming soon after the short but sweet Automatron. They released an ominous trailer that stinks of Point Lookout in the worst way. I think I’ve had to watch it about 8 times to take in every minute detail, as there’s so much bloody stuff going on. Let me break it down for you.
We seem to be on another ‘find a lost child’ mission that the devs absolutely love, and it’s going to take us to what looks like a series of fishing towns and swamps. Some of the wildlife in the trailer include mutated crustaceans, landborne angler fish, radioactive salamanders, and a huge evil shrimp that we’ll have to battle with a harpoon gun. A secret colony of synths also features, and it looks like we’ll be juggling factions between them, the children of atom, and the local townsfolk. I’m a slut for some synths so this is getting me hyped like nothing else. The new synth guy shown looks like an ancient synth, perhaps one of the first prototypes, with strange components and tangled wires attached to him. It’ll be interesting what his angle is. One can only assume it’ll be sinister, unlike the main campaign where the synths are the victims of the institute. Perhaps they’ll be embroiled in conflict with the poor townsfolk.

I also feel like the Children of Atom may be up to no good, and may be irradiating the important water supply in the fishing villages of Far Harbor. I guess we’ll just have to wait and see, but from what I’ve seen, I’m very impressed, and I can’t think of a piece of Fallout DLC that I’ve ever been let down by!
