Fallout 3 fans who have been waiting for the Broken Steel DLC might be interested in a large dose of development updates. Coming straight from Bethesda, some screenshots of the new content have been released along with a pretty interesting developmeny diary, where game designers Jeff Browne and Alan Nanes go into detail about the work they have been up to creating Broken Steel.

They write about balance issues in raising the game's level cap, the addition of new non-player characters to challenge the post-level 20 players, creating new weapons and armor, and how the game's storyline itself will be impacted by the changes. They also go into mechanics, such as how the style of Broken Steel will be largely solo play and what will make it worth playing for people who have already put the game down. If you're a Fallout 3 fan, it's definitely worth the read.
