Ideas For Fallout 4 DLC

The first big piece of Fallout 4 DLCfirst big piece of Fallout 4 DLC is expected by March, which means speculation is brewing regarding what Bethesda could possibly add to this gigantic game. Reviewed as one of the best gaming releases of 2015 and now recognised as one of the most detailed open-world experiences of all time, Fallout 4 is already loaded with content. It feels as if it's virtually impossible to exhaust the game's potential for entertainment, so what would make the DLC noteworthy?

Frankly, it's hard to think of too much, but these are some ideas floating around the web.

Underwater Missions

This is easily the hottest rumour circulating regarding the actual content we can expect in March. There have been plenty of different explanations of the hints that already exist in Fallout 4 regarding further exploration of the waters. And really, it lines up pretty well with a trend we've seen in open-world gaming, with games teasing the idea of underwater worlds but never quite diving all the way in, so to speak. In games like Far Cry 4 and GTA V, there have been some noteworthy findings and activities underwater, but nothing approaching the kind of adventure you can seek on land. It seems that Fallout 4 may finally take things a step further, with rumours of quests to take down giant, mutated beasts beneath the depthstake down giant, mutated beasts beneath the depths.

Poker & Gaming

The idea of gambling mini games is one that's been proposed for a lot of open-world games by a lot of fans, but it's perhaps more relevant for Fallout 4 given the tone set by Fallout: New Vegas. Plus, the world of multiplayer digital poker is expanding and improving every year on its own. In apps, through a new PS4 poker game and online players can engage in real poker competitions. In terms of the latter, they can even establish identities through the game while playing for money, gaining VIP status, and entreating regular tournaments. It's a very sophisticated corner of the gaming industry, and one that Fallout 4 could seemingly mimic with ease were Bethesda motivated to make it happen.

More Minutemen Action

This one is pretty straightforward, and comes at the end of a list of fairly sensible DLC ideas for Fallout 4. Simply put, the argument is that the Minutemen are among the most intriguing factions in the game, and yet after a certain point their story sort of disappears, unfinished. Because it's hard to imagine the Fallout 4 map getting much larger or more detailed (other than underwater), a little more plot in certain areas might be the way to go for Bethesda. Starting with the Minutemen would make for a whole new line of intrigue.

This is a pretty terrific game as is, and in a way it's a shame we've been so thoroughly conditioned to anticipate DLC. If Fallout 4 never changes or expands, it will still be among the most impressive titles on the new generation of consoles. That being said, any of the above concepts could make for a small improvement nonetheless!
