Fallout 3 modder tools, DLC dated

Fallout 3 modder tools, DLC dated

Bethesda will be releasing mod tools and new downloadable content in the first few months of 2009.

Bethesda has detailed and dated the first downloadable content for Fallout 3, as well as the release of the first content creation tools for the game that will let players create their own mods.

The Fallout 3 modder toolset, called the G.E.C.K, will be released on PC only this December and will let modders create all new dialogue, items, areas and quests.

The DLC meanwhile will be coming to both the Xbox 360 and PC platforms. There are three packs currently planned, the first of which is called Operation: Anchorage and which will be available for both platforms in January. The pack will set players in military simulation that sees them trying to liberate Anchorage, Alaska from Chinese invaders.

The second expansion, The Pitt, will allow the player to journey to a new raider town located in the ruins of Pittsburgh where they can get embroiled in local politics. The Pitt is expected in February.

The final DLC, Broken Steel will continue the adventure beyond the main quest and allow the player to fully enlist with the Brotherhood of Steel and fully purge The Enclave from Washington. Broken Steel is scheduled for release in March.

If you're unsure whether the game is worth picking up (it is) then you can check out our extensive Fallout 3 review for more information on the latest game in the much-hailed trilogy. Let us know what you think in the forums.

I wonder if they actually traveled to anchorage... or at least looked at pictures...

Lol. Oblivion 2150. No thanks.

Such a shame that the IP had to be picked up by such a bunch of clueless monkeys.

Have you actually played it by any chance?

I'm down. Mod tools for Oblivion pretty much revolutionized the game. I'm sure this will do the same.

I must say I have really been enjoying Fall Out 3 despite all these negative comments you see floating around the forums. If you take it for what it is and stop comparing it to previous games or Oblivion its a very entertaining game. I never get tired of VATS mode especially with my bloody gore perk and the sometimes crazy physics engine, hours of amusement right there!

Looking forward to what the modding community can do as well as the DLC that Beth provides.

On a side note I was hoping they would release a modding tool for Mass Efffect but no such luck I guess?

Seriously? Bethesda is a good developer and they managed to do a really good job updating a classic IP but still retaining it's core identity. I doubt anyone else could have done it better.

Hey,hey now. Everyones entitled to thier opinions, even if they are a bit.....wrong :-P

Woo-Hoo! Finally, a construction set! I can't wait. The modding community was outstanding for oblivion and I'm sure they'll make some amazing things for Fallout 3 as well. I take it these are like small add-ons, not like an entire expansion? By all means, these are great. I haven't even finished half of what I've got!

Though FO3 is a good game IMO, but it doesn't have the one thing that I valued the most in the originals. Just try and be an "evil" character without combat in FO3 to know what I'm talking about. Now I haven't played the game all the way through (I have probably 30% left), but in the original you can be an good or evil character without even fighting! The power of words seems to have little effect in FO3. Still, it's a good game, you just have to play it without expecting every damn thing to be like the original FO.

That site has good info but is just full of nag nag nag. All they do is say how the game sucks like this or how it shouldn't be like that. If it were up to them, Mario shouldn't have even have made it past 8bit...

You must be psyhic, I was just thinking about DLC earlier today and wondering if/when it was going to occur. Now I'm going to make my tinfoil hat before playing some more FO3.

i have it on ps3 :( , this the kinda situation that forces me to pirate to PC

Nothing's forcing you to pirate it, that's a choice. If you want it on PC, you can still purchase it.
Bigturk 4th December 2008, 01:31 Quote
iv brought it on ps3, so now i gota buy it again just because of some silly business of millioniar companies agreeing exclusive content for 1 or 2 systems while leave 1 player base with nothing,

so yes your right that im not being forced but i dnt expect to play twice for a game.
Mithyx 7th December 2008, 20:59 Quote
I can't blame you... I felt the same with with left 4 dead. It'd be great if they allowed you to register the game across all systems without requiring physical media.

Still won't pirate it, though... makes me feel like I'm ripping off the companies that create the great games like Bethesda, Valve, Stardock, etc. which could lead to them developing less for PC. Just a drop in the ocean, I know.

Back on topic... damnit I should've bought Fallout 3 for PC :)
