Time to dust off that copy of Fallout 3 and get your credit card out. Bethesda has released its first piece of downloadable content for the post-apocalyptic role-playing game: Operation Anchorage. As Shacknews reports, the DLC pack is available for both the Xbox 360 and PC, and it costs 800
bottle caps Microsoft Points ($10 in real money).
Xbox 360 users can get the pack through the Xbox Live Marketplace, while PC users will want to go through the Games for Windows Live Marketplace. Microsoft says you need to install the Games for Windows Live client, create a gamer card if you don't already have one, and head to the Marketplace area. Folks who got Fallout 3 through Steam are apparently not getting any special treatment—at least, Steam's Fallout 3 page makes no mention of the DLC pack.
In Operation Anchorage, players can hop in one of Fallout 3's virtual reality simulators and step back roughly 200 years to experience the liberation of Anchorage, Alaska from the Chinese army. Shacknews said earlier this month that the DLC offers 4-5 hours of gameplay.
