What’s in Fallout 4’s Far Harbor DLC and is it worth it?

At almost half the price of a full retail game, Fallout 4’s Far Harbor DLC is unquestionably one of the more expensive DLCs for any game in recent memory. Although it was advertised as the largest singular piece of DLC that Bethesda has done to date, it isn’t really much of a comparison when all of their previous games were ...
