Fallout 3 is done, someone notify Keyboard Cat.
I personally must thank you guys at Bethesda for the countless hours and screen burn-in on my 50″ plasma TV. Fallout 3 has probably been the only game to surpass the 70+ hour mark for me in a long, long time.
Todd Howard, the game’s executive producer has said that we’re past last-call when it comes to DLC. We were originally only supposed to have 3 extra trips back to the wasteland but we were allowed 5, and I can’t thank the man enough for keeping this game in my Xbox since I picked it up this February.
According to Mr. Howard, once the game was all said and done for just Fallout 3, the team split up to get to work on the next big game from Bethesda, while half of the team (mostly artists) stuck around to create the DLC that nikmonroe and I have been lapping up as if it were an ice cold bottle of Nuka-Cola.
He had an interview with Kotaku in which he stated the following:
“I think we’ve put enough content out there for this game. We knew we wanted to do three initially and we’ll see where that goes. I kind of had in my mind that the upper limit was five. Part of that was what I think people are willing to continue to pay for a game. And a lot of that is our own internal bandwidth.”
So, all that’s left for Fallout 3 is for a GotY edition to hit which will have all the DLC included (completely worth whatever it costs, considering so many of us bought all 5 DLC for $50 on top of what the game cost us originally), and for them to release the DLC on the PS3…which should be starting next month.
All we Fallout vault-dwellers have to look forward to now is Fallout: New Vegas, being developed by Obsidian Entertainment. Maybe Bethesda is working on that Fallout MMO?
