More Fallout 3 DLC coming soon

PALGN News | PS3 will also catch up on past DLC.
Bethesda has announced the existence of two new slices of downloadable content for its post-apocalyptic RPG, Fallout 3. In addition, the PS3 will also be receiving all past DLC for the game.

The first of the new DLC is called Point Lookout, which gives players a big new swampland to explore. Of course, there will be plenty of new characters to meet, as well as new quests to experience. Xbox 360 and PC owners will be seeing this in late June.

Oh, and there's also the infinitely more interesting Mothership Zeta. In this piece of DLC, players will actually experience an alien abduction. Apparently, the aliens are 'pissed', and will be putting the player through hell. Sounds fun. It's pegged for a late July release on the 360 and PC.

Both Point Lookout and Mothership Zeta will cost 800 MS points on release.

PS3 owners will finally be able to experience Fallout 3 DLC in late June, with Operation: Anchorage finally gracing the PlayStation Network with its presence. The Pitt and Broken Steel will follow soon after, with releases planned '4-6 weeks apart'.

If you have yet to play Fallout 3, you would probably be well served waiting until October, when a Game of the Year edition - the game bundled with all five pieces of DLC - will be released for PS3, Xbox 360 and PC at retail.

I can't wait.Even though I got the platinum the long way (playing it 3 times) and finished it months ago, I have still been playing it every few days.I even have a whole load of new games I have yet to finish but I always have time to play Fallout 3.

Bring on the DLC for the greatest game ever (along with MGS4).

That's pretty sweet, hopefully the patch includes the fixes and graphical upgrades the other versions recieved.

Finally I'll have the option to buy the DLC on PS3! Here's hoping all the XBOX360 users have subsidised the cost enough that it's dirt cheap too =)

I'm still yet to play Fallout. I figure, eventually they'll finish making DLC, releasing it as one pack, with patches, and I'll pick it up then!

Don't count on it. Bethesda aren't going to lose an opportunity to make money and the fact is that a lot of Fallout enthusiasts that have PS3's are desperate for the DLC. If anything Bethesda would jack the price up because they know there is a huge demand for the DLC on the PS3.

They're releasing a Game of the Year edition which comes with all the DLC packs and retails for 40 pounds on 360 and 30 pounds on PC. So if you have the PC version and import this for the DLC it works out to a few dollars cheaper then buying the DLC itself off the marketplace. Go figure.

Timed DLC exclusivity = dumbest thing ever.

Just give everyone the same thing at the same time and you will probably sell more.

Not necessarily. This way they've made a heap of money off the 360 version whilst constantly building up demand in the PS3 sector. Most likely they'll see a huge hit of money when a whole lot of PS3 customers buy it first day.

That said Microsoft would have offered them a substantial amount to make it worth their while and they'll probably end up making more money this way due to that.

finally, been waiting for the goty edition to pick this up rather than buying everything seperately for more moneys.

I've just started playing Fallout 3. It's pretty incredible, so I'm glad the option of DLC will be there if I decide I want it. But yeah, pretty stupid that PS3 owners had to wait for this in the first place.

Yes!! As a PS3 player this makes me exceptionally happy!! I bought the regular version only a few weeks ago (ironically, at the same time I traded in my regular Oblivion for GotY Oblivion).

Looks like I'll be playing regular FO3 until October, then selling that off to get the GotY of this too!

This + Trico = already building up to be the best E3 since 2006!! It's back, baby!!

Any demand would be vaporising before their eyes after delivering bug ridden and constantly crashing versions on both PC and 360.

^That was a problem for about half a day.

I have played all 3 dlc on 360 and they run fine.

I have the pc and ps3 versions, from playing them both the game has bugs but they don't render it unplayable, as for the PC DLC, I didn't have any problems playing it
