Bethesda has formally announced delays to the planned release of the next Fallout 3
expansions, dubbed The Pitt
and Broken Steel
The announcement, made via Gamespot
, pushes the release back for both pieces of DLC by one month.
, which is focused around a ruined factory in Pittsburgh, is now going to be released in March, while Broken Steel
will be available in April. Broken Steel
is the really interesting one in our eyes - it allows players to continue playing Fallout 3
after the end of the game and also increases the level cap by 10.
The first of the three DLC packs has already been released, though we didn't actually get around to playing it - check out Joe's column for details
No specific reason has been given for the delays, but a likely cause is that Bethesda is funnelling resources into its newly announced iPhone game, which Todd Howard unveiled at New York Comic Con
. What the mobile game will be though is still a mystery.
