As if the recent toolset announcement
wasn’t enough for Fallout 3 fans to be joyful about, Bethesda has begun spilling the beans on the upcoming “Operation: Anchorage” pack that will be arriving exclusively for the PC and Xbox next month. In an interview with IGN
, the company has revealed the new content will see Fallout survivors participating in the historical liberation of Anchorage from the Chinese Red Army by way of a virtual reality simulator.
Operation: Anchorage will include additional armor, weapons, and achievements, which can then be carried over into the main game. The first downloadable content for Bethesda's highly-acclaimed post apocalyptic action title should provide about four or five hours of gameplay, according to the company, and will cost 800 Microsoft Points ($10). A second and third piece of DLC dubbed The Pitt and Broken Steel, respectively, should debut later in 2009, providing plenty of extended life for the game.
