Fallout 3 DLC Coming to PlayStation 3


Bethesda Softworks has unveiled two more add-ons for Fallout 3 along with the big news – brace yourselves, fanboys – that all of it, old and new, is coming to the PlayStation 3.

Point Lookout, the first new DLC, is slated for release in late June on the Xbox 360 and PC, opening up a “massive new swampland area filled with new quests and content” for players to slog through. Following in July will be Mothership Zeta, an encounter that lets players experience an abduction at the hands of aliens who don’t seem particularly happy about the fact that their flying saucers keep crashing in the Wasteland. Both new add-ons will be available via Xbox Live and Games for Windows Live at a cost of 800 Microsoft Points each.

Bethesda also confirmed that the Fallout 3 DLC will be given a retail release later this year: The first add-on pack, coming in June, will include The Pitt and Operation: Anchorage, while Broken Steel and Point Lookout will come in a second pack scheduled for August. A Game of the Year edition was also announced, set to come out in October, which will include the original Fallout 3 along with all five add-ons and will sell for $49.99 on the PC and $59.99 on the Xbox 360.

But the big news, of course, is the official word from Bethesda that all previous and upcoming DLC will also be coming out for the PlayStation 3. The PS3 crowd has long suffered abuse at the hands of smug Xbox 360 and PC owners, but no more! Operation: Anchorage will hit the PlayStation Network in late June, while The Pitt and Broken Steel will follow at a future date. Point Lookout and Mothership Zeta will launch sometime after the original three DLC packages have been released.

Feel better now?
