Fallout 3 Broken Steel: First shots

New DLC out next month, screens inside now

Bethesda's released the first screenshots of Fallout 3's third downloadable content pack, Broken Steel.


Basically, the latest DLC effort sounds like exactly what fans have been waiting for. Following on from the ending of the original game, the level cap has been raised to 30, enemies are tougher and there's no more quest-ruining conclusion that stops you from carrying on exploring the world.

Besides the extra gameplay, Broken Steel will also introduce the following new bits and pieces:

- Level cap is raised from 20 to 30.

- New Achievements.

- New perks. One of which will be called 'Puppies' and will give you a brand new doggy if Dogmeat ever dies.

- New higher level enemies: Super Mutant Overlord, Feral Ghoul Reaver and Enclave Hellfire Trooper.

- New locations: Presidential Metro Tunnels and Adams Air Force Base.

It's out on May 5. In case you missed it Bethesda also unvieled a brand new Fallout game, called New Vegas yesterday.
