More info on Game: Fallout 3

UGO has interviewed Jeff Gardiner, the lead producer for the Fallout 3 DLC. There are a few new things here:

UGO: Will players be allowed to play as their existing characters in the DLC? Since “Broken Steel” takes place after the main story, how will this be addressed? Will it work similarly to Shivering Isles, where the new quests simply get added to your Pipboy, or will you have to load up a brand new game?

Jeff Gardiner: Yes, all of our DLC drops right into an existing game. Which is a double edged sword, or course, it requires a lot of testing and fine balance tuning on our part! In our third DLC, “Broken Steel,” we’ve come up with a way of allowing the player to continue on past the game ending… by changing it! You will not have to load in a new game to play any of the DLC material – though you will have to finish the main quest to experience most of what “Broken Steel” has to offer. That being said, we are raising the level cap, so even if you don’t complete the main quest you can experience the expanded content by leveling up past 20.
