Fallout 3 hitting PCs, consoles on October 28

— 3:41 PM on August 20, 2008

You can add another title to the list of blockbusters coming to the PC over the next few months. Bethesda has announced that, after four long years in development, Fallout 3 will finally come out on October 28. That release date apparently covers the PC, Xbox 360, and PlayStation 3, although only for North American gamers—those on the other side of the Atlantic will have to wait until October 31.

Fans who've followed Fallout 3's development will know the game takes place in a post-apocalyptic version of Washington, D.C. rife with mutants and 1950s Atomic Age references. The Fallout 3 formula departs from that of previous games in the series, which were developed by Black Isle Studios and featured isometric 2D graphics.

Presumably for the occasion, Bethesda has released a set of three new screenshots showing an exploding body and some of the game's environment. You'll find the screenshots in this Shacknews gallery, and you can also browse older galleries through this page. The Shack published a hands-on preview last month, too.
