Fallout 4 DLC Lawsuit

VentureBeat has details on a class action lawsuit Bethesda is facing over the lifetime Season Pass for Fallout 4. In 2015 Bethesda offered the pass for $30 to entitle purchasers to all the DLC ever made for the game: "To reward our most loyal fans, this time we’ll be offering a Season Pass that will get you all of the Fallout 4 DLC we ever do for just $30." Then a couple of years later they began offering the Fallout 4 Creation Club, which offered new premium content not available through the previous season pass. Hence the lawsuit. Here's more on what's going on:
The lawsuit charges Bethesda with breach of contract, unjust enrichment, promissory estoppel (breaking a promise, even in the absence of a legal contract), deceit or fraud, fraudulent concealment, negligent misrepresentation, tort arising out of breach of contract, breach of express warranty, and violation of Maryland’s Consumer Protection Act.

Margaret Esquenet, a counsel for Bethesda, filed an answer to the lawsuit, denying most of the legal claims. We’ve asked for additional comment. On its face, Bethesda’s defense is that the new content wasn’t DLC. The company itself was one of the pioneers of selling DLC, which goes back to the mid-2000s. It includes content that is developed as an addition to a game, released either with the game or after it comes out.
