Operation: Anchorage made it on time but Bethesda has revealed that the next two DLC updates for Fallout 3 have been delayed by a month.
The three DLC packs were first announced in November 2008, along with plans to release them on a monthly schedule beginning with Operation: Anchorage in January 2009. The first DLC made it on time, coming out on January 27, but Fallout fans are going to have to wait awhile longer for the next two: Bethesda announced over the weekend that The Pitt and Broken Steel have both been pushed back a month.
“The next DLC for Fallout 3, The Pitt, will be out in March,” Bethesda’s Pete Hines said. “Broken Steel will be out the following month, in April.”
Operation: Anchorage simulates the battle for control of Alaska between China and the United States that precipitated the Great War, while The Pitt turns players loose in the raider-infested remains of Pittsburgh and Broken Steel offers the chance to join with the Brotherhood of Steel in its ongoing battle against the remaining forces of the Enclave. Broken Steel is also noteworthy because it will do away with the finality of the original Fallout 3 ending and increase the level cap to 30.
The Pitt is now scheduled to hit in March while Broken Steel will follow in April, although specific dates haven’t been settled. No reason was given for the delay.
