Fallout 3 gets expanded
Operation Anchorage available for download
The official downloadable content (DLC) for Bethesda’s Fallout 3 is now available at the Xbox Live Marketplace. The added content costs $10 or 800 MS points.
Owners of the Xbox 360 and PC versions of Fallout 3 will have access the DLC package, entitled “Operation Anchorage”.
“Operation Anchorage” allows players to enter a top secret battle simulator, where they will have access to a wide range of weaponry and nearly infinite ammunition. Players will be able to choose a strike team, use new items, armor and weapons and gain access to exclusive new perks and achievements.
The simulated action takes place in the post-apocalyptic Alaskan tundra, making for a totally different look and feel from what players became accustomed to in the original Fallout 3 world.
“The Brotherhood Outcasts are trying to acquire advanced military technology, and the only way to open the vault containing these relics is by completing a tactical simulation only you can enter. In Operation: Anchorage you will re-live the epic Battle of Anchorage from Fallout lore. Find your way into the simulation, stripped of resources, and survive within the rules set up by the simulation’s creators. The Chinese red army is everywhere, so secure the surrounding mountain side and fight your way into the Chinese base.”
Multiple sources claim that the expansion adds an extra 4-6 hours of gameplay, including an expanded story line as well as the opportunity to explore and quest openly.
The four new achievements are
- Aiding the Outcast
- The Guns of Anchorage
- Paving the Way
- Operation: Anchorage
Completing all four of these achievements will add 100 points to a player’s gamer score.
