Fallout 4 Far Harbor DLC is Bigger than Oblivion’s Shivering Isles

Shivering Isles from Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion was enormous, even by today’s standards. The content itself was fantastic with a brand new story in a flamboyant world full of quests, items and characters. Personally, I can’t think of many other DLC packages in any game that rival its success.

The third DLC (so far) that Bethesda are releasing is Fallout 4 Far Harbor. Set on a highly-radiated island off the coast of Maine where you are set in search of a young woman for Valentine’s Detective Agency. The pack is the biggest of all the ones announced so far and will in fact have a larger area than that of Shivering Isles.

Responding to a fan question on Twitter, Vice President of Bethesda PR and Marketing Pete Hines (who is often the voice of all things Fallout) used Oblivion’s popular DLC as the answer to the size of Far Harbor:


This is some feat, with Shivering Isles considered larger than many other games’ full world map. With the vanilla Fallout 4 game easily setting you back over 100 hours, you could potentially be sinking another 30 or so into Far Harbor if Shivering Isles is anything to go by. You are not required to finish the main story to access Fallout 4 Far Harbor, and we will be introduced to a host of new characters, weapons, mods and storylines heavily consisting of the infamous synths.

Far Harbor is set to release in May and will cost $25 if you haven’t already purchased the season pass. Automatron was the first pack to release, and will be followed by Wasteland Workshop next month. Take a look at how to find Robot mods in Automatron if you are struggling.
