The recently announced Fallout 3 downloadable content is almost complete, Bethesdarevealed today.
Bethesda confirmed that Operation Anchorage, the first Fallout 3 DLC to arrive on PS3, is having it’s “finishing touches”. No firm release date was given, but it was expected to be released later this month. Pete Hines, chief spokesperson of Bethesda revealed that it actually took quite a bit of effort to pull the DLC onto PS3.
“Yes, quite a bit actually. 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.
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.”
The three DLC packs that came with Xbox 360 all had some notable problems, so hopefully Bethesda has had enough time to fix them for the PlayStation 3 versions. The fourth downloadable pack, titled Point Lookout, apparently released with very few issues. The fifth pack, Mothership Zeta, has yet to be released, and is currently scheduled for late July.
An official Game of the Year version of Fallout 3 is coming this October, and will most likely go for the retail price of $69.99.
