New (and final) DLC For Fallout 3 Announced

Bethesda has just announced another piece of DLC for Fallout 3. Entitled Mothership Zeta, this new content takes you into outer space. Beamed aboard this mothership, you must fight your way to the bridge in order to escape. The new content includes more new weapons, new gear to suit up in and more enemies (the alien variety this time).

This comes as a surprise to me as I thought Bethesda said that Point Lookout was to be the final piece of DLC. As of now, I have completed Operation Anchorage, Broken Steel and as of yesterday, the Pitt. I have yet to download Point Lookout, but I am told it’s the best of the DLC yet. Truthfully, the DLC for Fallout 3 has been good, but not great IMO. Once again, I can’t stop comparing Fallout 3 to Oblivion. Fair or not, the DLC for Oblivion was great. It wasn’t just more glorified side quests, but actual stuff that really helped your character. Like the Wizard Tower, Battlehorn Manor, etc, etc.

With that said, I am really excited about Mothership Zeta. It’s about time aliens got involved in the whole Fallout 3/50’s motif. While I won’t get started on how I think it’s getting ridiculous paying $10 a pop for this stuff, it keeps the game fresh.

Here’s a few shots to wet your appetite…and the Official Fallout Site.
