Bethesda has announced that the next bit of downloadable content for its Fallout 3 title will arrive on March 24. The new content, dubbed The Pitt, takes place in an industrial raider town located in the remains of Pittsburgh and will introduce new weapons while focusing on the conflict between slaves and slavers. It is intended to feature 4-5 hours of additional gameplay and should run for 800 Microsoft Points ($10) on both Xbox 360 and PC’s Games for Windows Live.

A third piece of Fallout 3 downloadable content, Broken Steel, will be released in April continuing the story past the original ending and raising the game’s level cap from 20 to 30.
