Bethesda announced DLC for Fallout 4 would be coming in 2016 last week, and it’s safe to say that this was a less than popular opinion. However, their marketing executive Pete Hines has come out to defend their initial reveal.

Hines responded to a fan on Twitter who claimed it was irresponsible to announce DLC for a game that hasn’t even been released with “I think letting folks know our thoughts on it and how it fits into our post-launch plans is a good approach.”

To their credit, Bethesda is being as upfront as possible with this announcement and the aftermath we have now. The actual announcement came with an admission that Bethesda “don’t know what the actual DLC will be yet,” with them stating they were focusing on polishing the actual title first. They also stated that there’s a Season Pass coming and in total the extra content will be “worth at least $40.”

Fallout 4 will be hitting current-generation consoles and PC on November 10.
