Those Playstation 3 Fallout 3 fans aching for some Downloadable Content will need to wait even longer then expected. How long must you wait, you ask? You may have to wait until late September to get to play the first Downloadable Content placed on the Playstation Network.
The first Downloadable Content will be Broken Steel, instead of Operation: Anchorage, due to the high demand from fans. Broken Steel will be slated for a late September release, or as the producer at Bethesda studios, Ashley Cheng, put’s it, they’re “hoping” for a late September release. So don’t be surprised if you hear another delay.
Broken Steel will be increasing the level cap to level 30 and adding an extra 4 – 5 hours of gameplay. After releasing Broken Steel, they’ll be releasing Operation: Anchorage and The Pitt soon after. They might release it at the same time, just to get them out to you as quickly as possible. Then after that, they’re gonna try and get Point Lookout and Mothership Zeta out to you as soon as possible. They’re trying to keep the wait time between the DLC releases minimal, and they have no real dates to announce about the DLC to be released after Broken Steel.
They explained, that the delay has happened because it takes extensive testing to make sure the DLC’s are ready for release. They need to test the DLC individually, test how it intereacts with the entire game, then they need to test how the DLC reacts with other DLC. It sounds complicated to say the least, so at least show some sympathy for them. As long as you’re getting these great releases, you should be happy. The Fallout 3 series is truly something any RPG fan play, if you haven’t heard of Fallout 3 or played it yet, I recommend you try it!
