Bethesda has delivered screens, information, and a release date for Mothership Zeta, the Fallout 3 downloadable content that takes the player from the Capital Wastes to the icy depths of space.
Well, not exactly the icy depths. Players find themselves trapped in an alien spaceship orbiting the Earth, and must band together with characters from the Wasteland and Earth’s past in order to escape what is sure to be a vicious probing. Alien technology like the Alien Atomizer, Alien Disintegrator, and Drone Cannon make your task a little easier, while you can use the Gemini-Era Spacesuit and Samurai armour to protect yourself from the alien hordes.
It looks like Bethesda is going out with a bang in this fifth and final installment of Fallout 3 DLC, but is this really the end? Pete Hines leaves us with a little wiggle room.
“Never say never, I suppose, but this was always the last one we had planned to do.”
Mothership Zeta drops Monday, August 3rd on Xbox Live and Games for Windows Live for 800 points.
