Released in October 2008, Fallout 3 has already had four downloadable content packages released for the 360 and PC. Operation Anchorage, The Pitt, Broken Steel, and Point Lookout, as the packages were titled, were all successes with critics and fans alike. Bethesda has announced that the fifth DLC package, Mothership Zeta, will be released August 11th, and that it is also the last content package for Fallout 3.
Operation Anchorage took Fallout 3 fans to the tundra in Alaska, and the The Pitt took them to the post apocalyptic remains of Pittsburgh, but Mothership Zeta will take them even further, to an alien mothership in orbit around the devastated planet.
If you’re wondering how aliens came into the picture in Fallout 3, you must have not discovered the alien crash site that was hidden in the Capital Wasteland. The crashed alien spacecraft shown relays a distress signal to the orbiting mothership, which is where the entirety of Mothership Zeta takes place.
While gunning down aliens is commonplace in videogames, Bethesda probably has put that Fallout 3 charm to good use in making Mothership Zeta stand apart. If you haven’t already purchased Fallout 3, a Game of the Year edition is being made available this holiday season, which will include all five of the DLC packs available for the game.
What do you think of the DLC for Fallout 3? Is it worth the cost, or does it make the game seem too fragmented? Let us know in the comments section.
