If you’d rather Mothership Zeta’s mysterious alien culture remain, well, mysterious, you should probably go ahead and plug your ears and avert your eyes. If not, though, MTV Multiplayer‘s new info on the DLC is right up your alley.

“Mothership Zeta is full of the most high tech weaponry in the game. It includes a Shock Baton for melee fighters, multiple new firearms including an Alien Atomizer, a pistol, and the Alien Disintegrator, a new rifle. There’s also a new grenade type, a Cryo Grenade, which freezes enemies for a short period of time. On top of that there are new unique weapons, and a new heavy weapon,” said Bethesda’s Jeff Gardiner.

He also revealed a new perk called “Xenotech Expert,” which increases your damage-dealing prowess with alien weapons.

On top of that, somewhere on the ship, you’ll be able to find an item called “Alien Epoxy,” a marvel of alien engineering that repairs items by 25% without a duplicate item. Better still, you have the option of returning to the ship whenever you want, so even if you miss an alien whosit or whatsit while roaming the ship’s corridors, you can always come back.

The DLC’s out this August for Xbox 360 and PC owners, while PS3 Fallout faithful will have to wait until September.
