have a pretty sweet interview up with Bethesda's Jeff Gardiner, the main squeeze behind the company's up and coming DLC (downloadable content) packs aimed to extend the life of Fallout 3.
The first of these packs, Fallout 3: Operation Anchorage, is due for release before the end of this month and sets players off on the infamous Anchorage battle in a simulation unit within the game-world (with a different look and feel to the Fallout 3 experience). However, there will be goodies you can take away with you and utilise throughout the Wastes including the recently revealed Chinese Stealth Suit that essentially becomes a Stealth Boy every time you crouch.
50g worth of Achievements will be added for each DLC pack (all purportedly coming in at 800MS points for purchase each), while the big awesome news is that the last DLC pack, Broken Steel, will raise the level cap to 30 and expand the Wastes plenty:
Broken Steel not only extends the game to level 30, it alters the core ending. It allows the player to continue exploring the ashen Wasteland and see the fruits that are born, or that die, from their decisions. It will reprise several main characters, and conclude some of the story threads left dangling.
The Pitt is due out next month, while Broken Steel (the one we're most excited about) hits in March.
