Speaking to videogaming247 in London this morning, Bethesda marketing boss Peter Hines said the company will definitely be looking into DLC for Fallout 3, but that at the moment all efforts are on finishing the game.

“Given how successful it was for us on Oblivion, certainly it’s a given that we’ll look into it and what we’d like to do,” he said, talking of extra content for the anticipated post-apocalyptic RPG.

“But I can’t tell you when, I can’t tell you what it would be, or what it would look like. Will it be bigger stuff like Knights of the Nine or smaller stuff? We’ve no idea. We’ll let folks know once we get down the road.”

Hines added: “Obviously we’ve done very well with [DLC] on Oblivion, but the big thing for us is that we’re still working on content for the game itself, and so all our designers and artists are pretty much totally engaged with that. So, until we’re done with that part of the process, we don’t ever think about whatever they’re going to be creating or whatever they’re going to be doing [after the game’s finished].”

Fallout 3 was looking in sterling form this morning, and lives up to every bit of hype from what we saw. We’ll bring you full impressions of the demo as soon as we’re able.
