Today Eurogamer put up a new interview with Fallout 3 DLC producer Jeff Gardiner. In the interview, he reveals some new details about Operation: Anchorage, the first DLC for Fallout 3, as well as new details on future DLC. Here’s an excerpt:
Eurogamer: Finally, can you tell us anything else about The Pitt and Broken Steel?
Jeff Gardiner: The Pitt is a more ‘Traditional’ Fallout 3 quest – it’s full of morally grey choices, shady NPCs, and features another city ravaged by time, neglect, nuclear waste and moral degradation.
Broken Steel not only extends the game to level 30, it alters the core ending. It allows the player to continue exploring the ashen Wasteland and see the fruits that are born, or that die, from their decisions. It will reprise several main characters, and conclude some of the story threads left dangling.
Head to Eurogamer to read the rest. More news after the break.
Last month we reported on Fliggerty’s Morrowind House Modding invitational. Previously the contest was set to conclude on January 5th, but the deadline is now extended to the 17th of the month. Head on over to Great House Fliggerty for more details.
More year-end awards have honored Fallout 3. At Xbox 360 Fanboy, fans voted Bethesda Studio of the Year and Fallout 3 RPG of the Year. Additionally, the game was honored as Xav’s overall top game. Meanwhile, WRAL named Fallout 3 their favorite game in 2008, while GameStooge honored it with four awards: top PC game, top 360 game, best RPG, and overall GOTY.
Elsewhere, Ash pointed me to the blog of one of 2K Marin’s developers, Steve Gaynor. Steve makes a few mentions of Fallout 3, including his first mod for the game, which adds dog food to the game. Additionally, Steve posts about his favorite moments in gaming for 2008 and kicks off the list with a quest from Fallout 3, Agatha’s Song.
