Bethesda delays Fallout 3 PS3 DLC till September


Ouch. Bethesda just said, on the official PlayStation blog, that it’s going to delay the release of all that Fallout 3 DLC for the PS3. Yup, PS3 gamers won’t be able to play the DLC until the end of September. Silver lining: Broken Steel will be the first one released, immediately raising the level cap and letting gamers play the game post-final mission.

Bethesda’s reasoning is that it’s taking longer than expected to QA all the various DLCs. (The fifth and final DLC, called Mothership Zeta, will be released for the Xbox 360 on July 28.)

Bethesda said that it’ll “have more” on the Game of the Year edition “later.” I don’t know, depending on the release date for that, it might make more sense to buy the GOTY edition than shell out the money for each DLC individually.

ProTip: Operation: Anchorage can be skipped, for the most part. The armor and weapon you obtain are the only reason I played through it.
