Bethesda has confirmed that Mothership Zeta will be the final piece of Fallout 3 DLC.
Although, remember what happened last time?
Tue, May 19, 2009 | 15:01 BST
All Fallout 3 DLC is to be released for PS3, Bethesda said today, including the three previously released episodes and two more upcoming chapters.
“Operation: Anchorage will be released for PS3 in June, followed by the release of The Pitt and Broken Steel 4-6 weeks apart,” said the company in a statement.
“Release dates will be forthcoming.”
Bethesda announced “substantial” DLC exclusively for 360 at E3 last year.
In a subsequent interview, the publisher’s comms boss, Peter Hines, told VG247 that keeping the content away from other consoles “was the right thing to do for Fallout 3.”
The two new episodes announced today are called Point Lookout and Mothership Zeta. Both will release on PS3, 360 and PC.
Point Lookout features a “massive new swampland area filled with new quests and content,” and will be available in late June for Xbox 360 and PC for 800 MS Points. The PS3 version will release after Broken Steel hits the console.
Mothership Zeta allows you to “experience an alien abduction first hand and find out if you’re tough enough to survive.” Xbox 360 an PC users get it in late July for 800 Points. PS3 gamers will see it after Point Lookout releases.
In addition, three new Fallout 3 products will release on disc over the next six months.
From the press release:
- 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 June 12th across Europe.
- 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 across Europe.
- 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 £39.99 / €59.99 for Xbox 360 and PS3, and £29.99 / €49.99 for PC.
Consider that well and truly milked, then.

Broken Steel may have been the last scheduled bit of Fallout 3 DLC, but there may be more, Bethesda’s Peter Hines has told OXM.
“Whether it’s the absolute last one remains to be seen, because it’s been hugely successful,” he said.
“Operation Anchorage vastly exceeded our expectation. It was like, ‘Holy shit, we did how many?’ And the Pitt was really successful, after a bit of a false start.
“But Broken Steel is the one that… everyone has been bugging us the most about, because it removes the ending and changes the level cap and lets you play more in that world.
“I think it’s going to be hugely, hugely popular.”
Broken Steel’s out now.

Fallout 3′s Broken Steel DLC has been restored and is once again available for purchase on the Games for Windows Live Marketplace.
Looks like the Windows Live DRM install error was fixed.
Tue, May 05, 2009 | 16:33 BST
In a statement just sent to VG247, Bethesda’s confirmed a Games For Windows Live DRM issue is causing problems with the PC version of Fallout 3 DLC, Broken Steel
“We’re seeing the same error, which is a Games for Windows Live DRM Install error,” said a spokesperson for the firm.
“Microsoft is working on fixing it, and we’ll let everyone know once we’ve verified it.”
The statement went on to say that the Xbox 360 version is also experiencing difficulties, and server-synching and new Achievements to blame.
“The Xbox Live servers don’t seem to be fully synched yet with the additional Achievements,” said the rep.
“This should fix itself automatically soon. People won’t lose any achievements.”

Update: A Bethesda rep in the UK’s just told us that comment’s being chased now.
Update 3: Bethesda’s issued a statement.
According to multiple reports, the PC version of Fallout 3 DLC Broken Steel isn’t working as it should.
The download throws up the error, “Not a cryptographic message or the cryptographic message is not formatted correctly. (Exception from HRESULT: 0x8009200D)” upon installation.
There also appears to be a difference between the reported file-size (510Mb) and the file you actually click through to download (471.6Mb).
This isn’t so great. The Pitt was amazingly broken at launch. We’re after comment now.

After the break. This is the last piece of Fallout 3 DLC, after which we’ll probably start looking forward to more on New Vegas. E3 for that, or we’re Dutch. And we’re not.
Be warned. There’s a monster spoiler in this trailer. The content’s out on PC and 360 on May 5.
Fri, May 01, 2009 | 22:17 BST
Earlier today, retailers Bountii, eStarland, and MSN Shopping showed pre-order listings for Fallout 3′s upcoming Broken Steel expansion and something called “Point Lookout”.
Rumors started circulating that this was a possible fourth expansion for the title, but Bethesda VP Pete Hines has brushed it off saying there isn’t a fourth expansion.
“We have said there will be three DLCs for Fallout 3, for PC and 360. We’ve released two, and the third, Broken Steel, is scheduled for release Tuesday, May 5th,” he told GamerVision.
“Beyond that we have no announced plans for additional DLC.”
The man has spoken.

First screens of the last bit of DLC for the 360 and PC versions of Fallout 3 came out of Bethesda today. Get them after the break.
The content’s out on May 5, and this bit changes the end of the game, apparently, to make it “never-ending,” as we were just told by a Bethesda rep.
Not sure how that works. There was a full presentation of this at the Bethesda press day in London yesterday. The embargo on detail’s just lifted so keep your eyes open for info.

Fallout 3 lead designer Emil Pagliarulo has said that Bethesda is working on more DLC for the game.
“I can say we’re working on lots of DLC,” he said during a panel at GDC.
“Lots of stuff brewing up here. God only knows where that may go. What famous landmarks can we destroy next?”
Bethesda’s third bit of DLC for Fallout 3, titled Broken Steel, is slated for next month.
Sat, Feb 07, 2009 | 09:08 GMT
The next batch of Fallout 3 DLC has slipped by a month, Bethesda’s confirmed to Gamespot.
“The next DLC for Fallout 3, The Pitt, will be out in March,” said marketing boss Pete Hines.
“Broken Steel will be out the following month, in April.”
The first piece of the game’s 360- and PC-exclusive DLC, Operation: Anchorage, has already shipped.
Thu, Jan 08, 2009 | 16:30 GMT
Speaking with Eurogamer, Fallout 3 DLC lead producer, Jeff Gardiner, said that Bethseda is going to raise the level cap from 20 to 30 when DLC, Broken Steel is released in March.
“Along with removing the game’s ‘ending’ with Broken Steel, we figure raising the level cap would allow them to [enjoy the game for longer],” he said.
“We plan on raising it to level 30 – but it will be a long, hard climb to get there!”

Bethesda’s detailed its Fallout 3 DLC, promising that Operation Anchorage will expand the game by roughly four to five hours.
The content will cost 800 points and is pencilled in for a January release. It will see you fight the Chinese red army and liberate the town of Anchorage via an in-game simulator. The mission will focus on stealth and a new ‘Covert Ops’ perk will be available to the player.
Operation Anchorage “will include new weapons, armor and achievements! It’s full of top-secret technology used by both sides during the war, which the player will of course be able to use throughout the main game as well,” said Fallout 3 lead producer Jeff Gardiner to IGN.
