Requires Fallout 4 (base game) to use this DLC
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.

If you had to pick only one DLC to get for Fallout 4 this would be it. Why? Because it has a good story, a lot of new places to explore, new enemies to defeat, new guns, new armor, new companions and most importantly it feels different compared to any other area in the game because of the darkness and fog. The island the DLC takes place on is huge so if you like to explore then this is for you. Far Harbor feels more like New Vegas than Fallout 4 because of what you can do in the new area.
Far Harbor is a must-have. The story is mysterious, and pulls you right in. However, the thing I like most about this expansion - by far - is the atmosphere: foggy, dark, creepy, intense. There's a tangible feeling of dread hanging over the entirety of Far Harbor and it clings to your heels every step of the way. The new island is also surprisingly large, with many new locations to discover. I haven't nearly seen them all, but there've already been some very cool ones. New guns, new armor, new companions, new story for existing companions, and even some skill-checks, which 'people on the Internet' really seem to love. I heartily recommend this expansion. Well done, Bethesda!
Like the title says, if you are going to pick just one DLC for Fallout 4, this is the one to pick. The area is absolutely enormous and filled with all sorts of little nooks and crannies with stuff to discover. If you played FO3's Point Lookout, this will have some of the same feelings. New enemies, and a new gun that quickly became my favorite in the game. The story in many ways is a condensed version of the main quest of the main game but actually in some ways is better. This expansion adds quite a number of hours onto the main game, especially if you spend a lot of time looking for everything. The main issue in this DLC is mostly a hardware related one. The DLC suffers from a lot of bugs and texture issues. Hopefully Bethesda will address this. As it stands texture issues and broken mechanics limit this expansion.
If only the base-game had been designed this way. The new area seems more feral, but what makes it so much better than the base-game is that the actions you take in the major quest-line are much closer to FO:NV regarding impact and weight. So many ways to go about doing things, and dialogue checks matter and lead to different approaches. If you enjoy FO4 for what it is, then Far Harbor will probably really impress you. And even if you were disappointed at FO4 for it's weak RPG elements, I'd still recommend getting Far Harbor, as it drastically improves the RPG elements within it's new area and quests, and thus it's the closest you'll get to a new FO:NV-style experience anytime soon.
Far Harbor is the latest DLC for Fallout 4 and it's also the name of the island where it takes place. An isolated island shared by synths, villagers and a strange cult called The Children of Atom. The place is covered in thick fog and the tops of the trees loom ghostly in the night as you explore the god forbidden landmass and try to pick a side in the conflict that is about to start. Far Harbor is a dark place full of mystery and danger. The local fauna has mutated into grotesque monsters that will try their best to kill. This area of the Maine is very much like a Fallout version of the Lovecraft story "The Shadows over Innsmouth"and it's just great.
