Fallout 3 - Point Lookout DLC today.

(Gamespot) – After Bethesda Softworks’ less-than-ideal launches of Fallout 3′s previous downloadable content Broken Steel and The Pitt, the company hopes to get it right today with the release of its newest add-on pack, Point Lookout. Point Lookout will be the fourth expansion to Fallout 3 and is available today on the PC and Xbox 360 for $10 (800 Microsoft points).

As outlined in GameSpot‘s hands-on preview, players begin the expansion by meeting a ferryman in the southern end of Capital Wasteland. Players are taken to Point Lookout, a swampland filled with mutated inbred hillbillies, a mysterious hi-tech mansion, and raider cultists. The game is targeted at players over level 20 and offers weaponry that’s a step backward from the laser-driven technology that dominates the second half of the original Fallout 3 game.

Fallout 3 isn’t over when players have survived their foray into Point Lookout. A fifth expansion, the alien-abduction-themed Mothership Zeta is expected to come in late July. As previously announced, Bethesda will package all five expansions into the retail release of Fallout 3 Game of the Year Edition for the PC, Xbox 360, and PlayStation 3, which is due out in October.
