- PlayStation 3 is set to receive existing Fallout 3 downloadable content beginning in June, with two new add-ons announced coming to PC, PS3 and Xbox 360.
Bethesda has announced plans to bring Operation Anchorage, The Pitt and Broken Steel to PlayStation 3 over the coming months. These Fallout 3 add-ons were previously only available for Xbox 360 and PC.
Operation Anchorage will be released on PS3 in June, with the other content following four to six weeks apart. An update will be released for the PlayStation 3 version of the game to enable such content to work.
Meanwhile new content is coming for PC, PS3 and Xbox 360 versions of Fallout 3. These are Point Lookout "Explore a massive new swampland area filled with new quests and content" and 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 released on PC and Xbox 360 in June and follow on PlayStation 3 once the three other expansions have been released. The cost for the initial PC/X360 release will be 800 Microsoft points. Mothership Zeta will cost the same and will arrive on PC/X360 in July, again with a PS3 release once the other four pieces of content have appeared on the PlayStation Network.
Bethesda is releasing the DLC as retail disks for Xbox 360 and PC on June 12th in Europe - the first disk will feature Operation Anchorage and The Pitt. In August a further retail release for the two formats will feature Broken Steel and Point Lookout.
October will see the release of the Fallout 3 Game of the Year Edition in stores. Here you'll get the game and all five add-ons and this release will appear on PlayStation 3 along with Xbox 360 and PC.
Bethesda points out that there will be no retail versions of the add-ons for PlayStation 3 and DLC must be purchased via PlayStation Network or via October's Game of the Year package.
