Bethesda Cares About PS3 Owners After All
News has just broken out that Bethesda is planning on releasing the once-Xbox 360-exclusive Fallout 3 DLC to the PlayStation 3.
Apparently, Bethesda has been working on the coding for some time now. PlayStation 3 owners can expect Operation: Anchorage to release sometime in June, with The Pitt and Broken Steel releasing 4-6 weeks apart. As of yet, solid release dates are not set in stone. To make the DLC playable, a support patch will be released in the coming weeks.
Not only that, but Bethesda has announced 2 new pieces of DLC for PC, Xbox360 and PS3! Dubbed “Point Lookout” and “Mothership Zeta”, these new packs will put your Fallout 3 skills to the test!
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.
Point Lookout will be available in late June for Xbox 360 and PC. Cost will be 800 Microsoft Points. It will be available through Xbox Live and Games for Windows Live. Point Lookout will be available on PS3 after the first three DLCs have been released.
Mothership Zeta is scheduled for release in late July for Xbox 360 and PC. Cost will be 800 Microsoft Points. It will be available through Xbox Live and Games for Windows Live. Mothership Zeta will be available on PS3 after Point Lookout.
Finally, new Fallout 3 products will be available at retail this year.
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.
Retail versions of the game add-on packs for PS3 will not be available and the DLC will only be available for download via PlayStation Network or with the Fallout 3 Game of the Year edition.
