Softworks Europe is today pleased to announce that Fallout® 3 downloadable
content (DLC) is coming to PLAYSTATION®3 computer entertainment system. We have
been working on implementing it for a while and look forward to bringing it to
PS3 gamers via the PlayStation Network. Operation: Anchorage will be released
for PS3 in late June, followed by the release of The Pitt and Broken Steel 4-6
weeks apart. Release dates will be forthcoming.
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 – Explore a massive new swampland area filled with new quests
• 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.
