Fallout 3 DLC coming to the PS3, new DLC announced

It looks like the exclusive time limit on Fallout 3 DLC has expired as Bethesda announced today The Pitt, Operation: Anchorage, and Broken Steel will be coming to the PS3 this June.  They will appear in the same order they appeared for the Xbox 360 and will be made available every 4-6 weeks after the first release in late June. 

Bethesda also announced two new DLC packs which will be released on all three platforms..  They are Point Lookout which will have you exploring a new swamp area (late June) and Mothership Zeta (late July) which has you experiencing the joys of alien abduction (hopefully no anal probes although I wouldn't put it past them).  The new DLC will be available for the standard price of 800 points/$9.99.

For those of you who don't trust this whole DLC thing you'll be happy to know that Bethesda is going to be bundling the packs for retail later this year for the Xbox and PC platform (PS3 owners are stuck with a purely digital service).  The first pack will include The Pitt and Operation Anchorage and will be available on May 26 with a second pack of Broken Steel and Point Lookout hitting in August.


We are pleased to announce that Fallout® 3 downloadable content (DLC) is coming to PLAYSTATION®3 computer entertainment system. We have been working on implementing it for a while and look forward to bringing it to PS3 gamers via the PlayStation Network. Operation: Anchorage will be released for PS3 in late June, followed by the release of The Pitt and Broken Steel 4-6 weeks apart. Release dates will be forthcoming.



In addition, a new update will be released for PS3 that will allow users to download and play the new DLC. The release date for that update will be announced at a later date.



There are also two new DLCs planned for all three platforms:

· Point Lookout – Explore a massive new swampland area filled with new quests and content.

· Mothership Zeta – The aliens have returned, and they’re pissed. Experience an alien abduction first hand and find out if you’re tough enough to survive.



Point Lookout will be available in late June for Xbox 360 and PC. Cost will be 800 points or $9.99. It will be available through Xbox Live and Games for Windows Live and through token cards available at retail. Point Lookout will be available on PS3 after the first three DLCs have been released.



Mothership Zeta is scheduled for release in late July for Xbox 360 and PC. Cost will be 800 points or $9.99. It will be available through Xbox Live and Games for Windows Live and through token cards available at retail. Mothership Zeta will be available on PS3 after Point Lookout.



Finally, new Fallout 3 products will be available at retail this year.



Fallout 3 Game Add-on Pack #1 includes The Pitt and Operation: Anchorage on a disc and will be available for Xbox 360 and PC on May 26.



The Fallout 3 Game Add-on Pack #2 includes Broken Steel and Point Lookout on a disc and will be available for Xbox 360 and PC in August.



Retail versions of the game add-on packs for PS3 are not possible and the DLC will only be available for download online via PlayStation Network.



A Fallout 3 Game of the Year edition will be available in October. It will include the original game plus all five add-ons for $59.99 for Xbox 360 and PS3, and $49.99 for PC.
