Fallout 4's season pass will grand access to all the DLC Bethesda creates for the game following its release in November. The season pass will cost $30.00 (£19.50) and the first DLC will be released in "early 2016".

Regular free post-release updates have been promised which will include "fixes and new features" and Bethesda also confirmed that mods will be coming to PS4 as well as Xbox One, the platform for which the feature was first announced at E3 in June.

"We've always done a lot of DLC for our games," reads Bethesda's blog. "We love making them and you always ask us for more. To reward our most loyal fans, this time we'll be offering a Season Pass that will get you all of the Fallout 4 DLC we ever do for just $30.

"Since we're still hard at work on the game, we don't know what the actual DLC will be yet, but it will start coming early next year. Based on what we did for Oblivion, Fallout 3, and Skyrim, we know that it will be worth at least $40, and if we do more, you'll get it all with the Season Pass."

Following the release of Fallout 3 in 2008 Bethesda released five expansions – Operation Anchorage, The Pitt, Broken Steel, Point Lookout and Mothership Zeta – within the space of a year, while The Elder Scrolls 5: Skyrim saw the release of three add-ons – Dawnguard, Hearthfire and Dragonborn.

Fallout 4 will be released on PS4, Xbox One and PC on 10 November 2015.
