First Fallout 3 DLC is coming

After previously reporting on a major patch for Fallout 3, Bethesda also announced that the first of three pieces of downloadable content is coming. The first expansion will be called Operation: Anchorage and will be released on January 27 for Xbox 360 and PC. Cost of this package: 800 Microsoft Points.

Too bad for the Playstation 3 users, but due to an exclusivity contract with Microsoft, this extension will not be made available for the Playstation 3.

The third installment in the Fallout series will be developed for the first time by the talented team behind the award-winning Oblivion, namely Bethesda Softworks. Bethesda bought the license in 2004 and hopes to continue building on the popular two parts from the 1990s.

The highly anticipated sequel will run on an improved version of the Oblivion engine, but Bethseda added that the third-person view will be significantly improved given the negative feedback on this aspect of the coveted role-playing game. 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.

Fallout 3 is now available for PC, Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3.
