Fallout 3 DLC heading to PS3, two more announced

By on May 19, 2009, 12:23 PM
Bethesda has announced it plans to develop at least two more pieces of downloadable content for Fallout 3, as well as finally making the currently PC and Xbox 360 exclusive packs available to PlayStation 3 gamers. Starting from late June, PS3 owners will be given access to the first DLC in the series, Operation Anchorage, followed by The Pitt and Broken Steel after 4-6 week intervals.

As for the new Fallout 3 expansions, the first of them, Point Lookout, will also see a release in late June on Xbox 360 and PC, while Mothership Zeta will focus on the return of the aliens to the Fallout universe come late July on the two aforementioned platforms. Both packs will cost 800 Microsoft Points (or $9.99), and will make their way to the PlayStation 3 once the first three packs have been released for it.

On top of these announcements, Bethesda also plans to have a Fallout 3 Game of the Year edition available in stores this October, packing the original version of the post-apocalyptic title along with the five add-ons. The PC version will sell at $49.99, with the Xbox 360 and PS3 iterations priced at $59.99 each.

Nice to hear this for the PS3 folks who have been clamoring for the DLC's. And two more DLC's in the works? Man, this is the game that just keeps going and going and going... Which works for me! One of the best (if not the best) game I've ever played.

what is the gameplay like and has it got a lot of gore?

It would take a novel to write about the gameplay. It's about 40% exploration, 30% shooter and 30% quest/NPC interaction. There's a fair amount of gore in it - from the landscape to cinematics of kills. I'm not sure if you can turn the gore off or down, but considering the story behind the game, I wouldn't want to. Would ruin the overall effect of the game.It's a real experience exploring through the ruins of Washington D.C., the monuments and surrounding areas. The play area is HUGE and open sandbox - just pick a direction and go, you'll run into something. If you stick straight with the main quest (definitely not recommended), you can knock out the game in about 15-20 hours. If you explore the entire landscape and complete all of the non-main quests, it will take you 110-120 hours to complete the game. And then there's all the expansion packs. So you definitely get your money's worth out of it.There's a reason why it won GOTY from many gaming websites and magazines. Very highly recommended.
