The latest issue of the UK's Official Xbox Magazine contains a slew of new details regarding the second upcoming downloadable content for Bethesda's Fallout 3, The Pitt.


The Pitt downloadable content, due out in March for the Xbox 360 and PC, takes place in Pittsburgh's industrial district. A "stunning dystopia that's unlike any other area in Fallout 3's world", The Pitt consists of an expansive dungeon area and a settlement split into two factions - masters and slaves.

Players will find themselves interacting with the Raiders they spent so much time killing during the main game, with quests allowing players to support either side of the settlement, allowing for a fair bit more replayability than the rather linear Operation: Anchorage pack released late last month.

The Pitt is the second of three downloadable content packs scheduled for release for Fallout 3, following Anchorage and preceding the Broken Steel pack, which will increase the level cap and remove the ending from the game. For more information and screenshots from The Pitt, dig up a copy of the Official Xbox Magazine UK number 44.

Paradox me

Sounds good. I was really into Operation Anchorage and the idea of more areas unlike the Wasteland (although I loved it) is win in my book.

I'm a little hesitant about just how different it will be though, seeing as it includes Raiders, slavers and slaves - three things we had plenty of in the Wasteland.

P.S. Beth, pull a Valve and give it to us free!
