Bethesda’s Pete Hines says that the Operation: Anchorage DLC for Fallout 3 on PS3 is almost finished.
“It’s a different platform with a different way of doing things and it requires special attention and plenty of testing before it’s released,” he told Eurogamer.
“We are trying to put the finishing touches on it now, but as I said above it’s a different task than DLC on another platform, and so there are things we have to finish doing and testing before it’s done on PS3.”
After this bit is released, Hines revealed that the other packs will follow every 4-6 weeks.

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.

Eurogamer has published the first review of Bethesda’s Fallout 3 DLC and wasn’t too impressed if the decidedly average 5/10 score is anything to go by.
From the review:
I love Fallout 3. I love it to an almost indecent extent. It was far and away my game of 2008, and doesn’t look like being knocked out of my personal top spot for a good while yet. But when you sift out its role-play, the ammo-box inspection and the exploration and draft in a fleet of health and ammo regeneration points to compensate… well, affairs just feel shallow and somewhat naked. Hopefully a lesson has been learnt at Bethesda towers. Business as usual next time please.
Operation: Anchorage is available now on PC and 360 for 800 Microsoft Points.

MTV Multiplayer asked Bethseda whether PlayStation 3 owners would get the same patch as 360/PC players that allows for exploration of Fallout 3′s landscape after the main quest has been completed.
Executive producer Todd Howard simply replied, “Not at this time, no.”
So there you have it. Game over.
The patch comes with Fallout 3 DLC Operation: Anchorage which should be available from tomorrow.
