Big Machines and Weapons on New Screenshots Fallout 3 DLC Broken Steel

Earlier this year, the downloadable content (DLC) The Pitt for Fallout 3 was released, but it won’t stop there. The third bundle of new content, titled Broken Steel, is on the way and will be released on May 5 for the PC and Xbox 360 versions of Fallout 3. Today we get to see some new screenshots of Broken Steel.

Broken Steel provides a new storyline that will keep you busy for four to five hours. Plus, it takes place after the game’s original ending, so you can keep exploring the world of Fallout 3 even after you’ve completed the main quest. The level cap will also be increased from 20 to 30 and new high-level perks, armor and weapons will be added.

The story of Fallout 3 begins with your birth and your mother’s death in a hospital. This is the moment where you can create your own character with a DNA analyst. Fallout 3’s combat system is called the Vault-tec Assisted Targeting System (VATS). You can take down enemies in real-time from a first-person perspective, but the nice thing about the VATS system is that you can pause time to select a target at will. However, its use is limited by action points, but these will usually be replenished during battles. If you’re not into skinning enemies alive, Bethseda guarantees that you can also struggle through the levels by working unobtrusively and silently. It also seems that having conversations can go a long way towards getting through the areas unscathed.

Enemies can attack you in exactly the same way with the targeting system, so it is possible to get hit in different places on your body. To make these battles run smoothly, there is a new health system, also as a clear radiation system. The latter is a very practical option for demonstrating contamination of water and food before consuming it. The Karma system will once again be in full swing and there are about 9 to 12 possible endings based on your actions.
