The first round of Fallout 3 downloadable content was unveiled today, but PS3 owners will be a bit up in arms over the announcement. Sure, the new level editor and missions are cool — but they’ll only appear on Xbox 360 and Windows PC.
The official editor for Fallout 3, called the G.E.C.K. (Garden of Eden Creation Kit), will be available for free download in December and will allow PC gamers to create and add their own content to the game.
Meanwhile, the first official Fallout 3 downloadable content, Operation: Anchorage, will be available exclusively for the Xbox 360 and Games for Windows in January. More downloadable content will be released in February and March. Bethesda did not indicate whether that DLC will also appear on PS3.
The release of the G.E.C.K. will let players create, modify and edit any data for use with Fallout 3, from building landscapes, towns and locations to writing dialogue, creating characters, weapons and creatures.
Three downloadable content packs will be coming to Xbox 360 and PC starting in January:
- Operation: Anchorage: Enter a military simulation and fight in one of the greatest battles of the Fallout universe — the liberation of Anchorage, Alaska from its Chinese Communist invaders. An action-packed battle scheduled for release in January.
- The Pitt: Journey to the industrial raider town called The Pitt, located in the remains of Pittsburgh. Choose your side. Scheduled for release in February.
- Broken Steel: Join the ranks of the Brotherhood of Steel and rid the Capital Wasteland of the Enclave remnants once and for all. Continues the adventure past the main quest. Scheduled for release in March.
