For the past several months, Xbox 360 and Games for Windows/PC have been bathing in Fallout 3 DLC fun while Playstation 3 owners have been hung out to dry.
Today Bethesda Softworks broke word that Operation: Anchorage will be the first Fallout 3 DLC to land on PS3 with a release month of June. The two other former Microsoft exclusive packs, The Pitt and Broken Steel, will make their way 4-6 weeks apart after Operation: Anchorage arrives.
Continuing the staggered release trend, the next two Fallout 3 DLCs will be available on Xbox 360 and Games for Windows/PC before PS3. Up first will be Point Lookout in late June where you “explore a massive new swampland area filled with new quests and content.”
Mothership Zeta will touch down — literally — a month later in late July. In it, “The aliens have returned, and they’re pissed. Experience an alien abduction first hand and find out if you’re tough enough to survive.”
Each new DLC will cost 800 points or $9.99. The PS3 versions will become available after the original three DLCs have been released on that console.
Fallout 3 DLC will make its retail debut on May 26 with Add-on Pack #1 which includes The Pitt and Operation: Anchorage. The Fallout 3 DLC Add-on Pack #2 includingBroken Steel and Point Lookout will be available in August.
Bethesda will not be releasing Fallout 3 DLC packs to retail for Playstation 3 as it is “not possible.”
Lastly, October will see the release of Fallout 3: Game of the Year edition following in the tradition of The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion. That new version, which will include all five DLCs, will retail for $59.99 on PS3 and Xbox 360, and $49.99 on Games for Windows/PC.
