Fallout 3 DLC PS3 inbound

Bethesda Softworks Europe, the makers of Fallout 3, announced on Monday that new Fallout 3 downloadable content (DLC) is coming to Sony's PS3.

"We have been working on implementing it for a while and look forward to bringing it to PS3 gamers via the PlayStation Network", the company said in a statement.

Operation: Anchorage will be released for PS3 in late June, followed by the release of The Pitt and Broken Steel 4-6 weeks apart.

In addition, a new update will be released for PS3 that will allow users to download and play the new DLC. The release date for that update will be announced at a later date.

There are also two new DLCs planned for all three platforms:

Point Lookout will explore a massive new swampland area filled with new quests and content while Mothership Zeta will see the aliens returning letting you 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.

The new content will cost 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.

Bethesda has also confirmed new Fallout 3 products will be available later 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 12 June 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 euros for Xbox 360 and PS3, and £29.99 / 49.99 euros 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, the company has said.
