There's a new case for the Valentine Detective Agency, and it's taking them to Stephen King's home state of Maine. Far Harbor, Maine, to be exact.

The case starts off as many Fallout adventures do: With a missing child. "Please," a woman pleads, "bring my daughter home."

So it's off to the largest landmass Bethesda has ever put in an expansion. This island is rife with radiation, a thick, cruel fog, the requisite faction strife, enough pine trees to make Alan Wake jealous, and a side of Nick Valentine that he warns "can get out of hand real fast."

The Far Harbor expansion is part of the Fallout 4 Season Pass. If you didn't lump down cash for the pass, however, it's $24.99 on its own. This is the third piece of who-knows-how-many bits of DLC coming to Fallout 4. While Bethesda stated more DLC is on the way, there are no details on that stuff yet.

We gave Fallout 4 our highest score. The Automatron DLC, which introduced the villainous (?) Mechanist, also raked in an 8 out of 10. We've even gotten some laughs out of the Wasteland Workshop DLC, which didn't warrant a full review, but got some interestingif unintended—fights between our settlers and arena combatants.

Fallout 4: Far Harbor is on PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One on Thursday, May 19.

We’ve just released the official trailer for Fallout 4’s third add-on, Far Harbor, which will be available worldwide on Thursday, May 19 across Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC for $24.99.

In 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 Bethesda Game Studios has 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.

Stay tuned for more details on even more add-ons to be released in 2016, and on free updates like Mods which is now available on PC. Mods will be coming to Xbox One players later this month and to PlayStation 4 players in June.
