April being the last month before the release of Fallout 4s most anticipated DLC so far, Far Harbor. A lot of new updates alluding to features of the DLC were added, here are the things we learnt about Far Harbor in April.
The Children of Atom may be a joinable faction:
A update to the PC version of the game added 12 new face paints for the player character, these face paints all having names that tie into the Children of Atom, although they are untextured, a video from a YouTuber shows all 12 of the face paints in game, could these potentially mean that the Children of Atom is a joinable faction? We believe so. An official extract from Bethesda says that the DLC is heavily focused on the Children of Atom and their involvement on the island of 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 towards bringing peace to Far Harbor, and at what cost? Far Harbor features the largest landmass for an add-on that we’ve 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.
There will be over 30 new settlement objects:
