The next piece of downloadable content to become available for Bethesda’s, Fallout 3, is called Mothership Zeta. More information and screenshots have been released today, showing some of what this extensive DLC will have to offer.
For those of you who don’t know, the twist on Mothership Zeta is that it takes you out of the wasteland and shoves you into an Alien Space ship that orbits the earth. Quite an interesting concept, I think, as it’s pretty different than that of the past few DLC’s.
You’ll be faced with having to partner up with characters from the Wasteland and “Earth’s past” to escape. Not only that, but you have access to alien technology such as a disintegrator, atomizer and drone cannon. The geek in me seems to be screaming out at the sight of an Alien Atomizer, hah. You’ll be able to use a space suit and samurai armor as protection. As Fallout 3’s last installment of Downloadable Content, it seems to be going for an experience greater than all of the previous DLC’s. Well, actually, it may not be the last installment, Pete Hines said you should never say never, but this was the planned last installment for the series. So though it isn’t an impossibility to expect another release, it isn’t something you should hope for immediately.
Fallout 3 Mothership Zeta will be going on Xbox Live for 800 Microsoft Points on August 3rd. All Fallout 3 owners/fans/soon-to-be fans, keep your eyes out for this one. It’s sure to impress.
