New details emerge on Fallout 3: The Pitt

Bethesda Studios has announced more details on its second downloadable expansion for their award winning game, Fallout 3. The Pitt takes place in the ruins of Pittsburgh Pennsylvania where slaves and Raider masters collide. In a recent interview with VG247, lead producer of The Pitt, Jeff Gardiner announced that the expansion will add roughly four hours of gameplay to Fallout 3 with the ability to revisit The Pitt after the quests have been completed. "The Pitt comprises of around four hours of playtime," said Gardiner.

In addition, the producer announced: "There are also four new Achievements, as well as new perks."

Gardiner also mentioned that there are many new items to collect. "There's plenty of new gear in The Pitt." "It's just as brutal but not as high tech as the load-outs available in Operation: Anchorage. There are several new raider armors, even a stylized version of the Brotherhood of Steels' Power Armor." Some of the new weapons included are: "An 'AutoAxe,' a two handled melee weapon complete with a serrated rotary blade, great for sawing through bone, and a silenced scoped automatic rifle we've coined 'The Inflitrator'."

The Pitt will be released on March 24 for the Xbox 360 and PC with a price tag of 800 Microsoft Points, according to a statement put out by Bethesda earlier this month. The content comes two months after the first expansion, Operation Anchorage, arrived.
