I actually did a double-take on this press release right here. Reading the title, I was like, "no way" and then "yes way" and then "whooooa." Bethesda Softworks has confirmed that the Fallout 3 DLC, which have been reaffirmed by Pete Hines to be exclusive for the Xbox 360 and PC, will now also be coming to the PS3 starting this June!
No specific release dates have been notched, but Operation: Anchorage is already scheduled to go live on the PlayStation Network in late June, with The Pitt and Broken Steel getting released "4-6 weeks apart." A new patch update for Fallout 3 will be released for the PS3 to pave the way for these DLC.
And oh, Pete Hines, you silly little rabbit, you. Despite giving us the runaround just the other day by saying that Broken Steel would be the last DLC for Fallout 3, turns out there's not just one - but two new DLC add-ons! And even better, the following two DLC will be released across all three platform versions of Fallout 3:
Both of these DLC will still get timed-exclusivity for the Xbox 360 and PC - late June for Lookout, late July for Zeta. The PS3 version will get the two after the first three DLC have been rolled out.
- Point Lookout Explore a massive new swampland area filled with new quests and content.
- Mothership Zeta The aliens have returned, and they re pissed. Experience an alien abduction first hand and find out if you re tough enough to survive.
All the game add-ons will be introduced via retail too.
Everything seems to be in order. Let's just hope that when they roll out the upcoming DLC, they don't botch it up like last time... and the time before that... and the time before that... and, yes, the time before that too...
