Bethesda Announces New Fallout 3 DLC
Written Tuesday, May 19, 2009 By Dan WebbView author's profile
Bethesda today announced two new pieces of downloadable content for Fallout 3, coming this coming June and July for Xbox 360 and PC; one of which you might even recognise from the one rumoured last month.
The first of two newly announced episodes, Point Lookout throws players into a massive swampland area promising new quests and content to tide you over. Point Lookout will cost the usual 800 Microsoft Points and be available in late June.
The second of the new episodes, set for late July for 800 points also, is the extra terrestrially named, Mothership Zeta, where you'll encounter a race of supremely pissed off aliens and experience an alien abduction first hand.
In addition, PS3 owners out there who own this title will be glad to see all previous downloadable content making its way to the PSN starting this coming June with Operation Anchorage, followed by the release of The Pitt and Broken Steel 4-6 weeks apart. Point Lookout and Mothership Zeta are all slated for a PS3 launch after all the other three packs have been released.
Bethesda also sent word that they are planing to release their content on disc with their Add-on Pack #1 (Anchorage and The Pitt) hitting stores across Europe from June 12th. Add-on Pack #2 will drop in August and contain Broken Steel and Point Lookout. No price has yet been finalised, but these packs are stated as Xbox 360 and PC only.
Last but not least, Bethesda will be releasing a Game of the Year edition of Fallout 3 this coming October that will feature the original game and all five add-ons for a mere £39.99/€59.99 for the Xbox 360 and PS3. A PC version will be available and it will be slightly cheaper at £29.99/€49.99.
