Bethesda further confirmed gamepad compatibility for PC and Steam Achievements, and a recent blog post states that they are planning to support the game with free DLC post-release, in addition to a $30 season pass that will get you all the planned paid DLC for slightly cheaper than the individual cost. 

Finally, the developer announced the exact times for when the game becomes playable. The game will be available to play on all platforms and in all territories on November 10, at 12:01 am local time.
