Fallout 3: Point Lookout E3 2009 Game Director Interview »


Those talented and dedicated folks over at Bethesda Softworks are poised to release Point Lookout (June 23), the fourth DLC installment for the company’s critically acclaimed apocalyptic RPG Fallout 3. The latest adventure takes players to the swampy titular state park along the Chesapeake Bay in Maryland.

Now, in case you were wondering if this latest episode is worth dropping some precious coin for, rest assured. Because as Fallout 3 DLC lead producer Jeff Gardiner tells Platform Nation:

“There are lots of new creatures, items, armor, weapons and a whole new area to explore. The Point Lookout Swamp is substantive and should engross players for several hours even if they ignore the quest line. “

Gardiner also says that the main story should take between three to five hours to complete if played at a normal pace, so it's clear that this is one of the heftiest Fallout 3 DLC installments yet.

To be honest, based on what I’ve seen of the game so far, I’d be happy just wandering around Point Lookout, without any quests or objectives, pretending I was the witty co-star of Deliverance 2: Squealers Revenge (I'm still going to do this anyway, so everything else is just gravy at this point.)

Anyone out there seriously looking forward to see what happens when post-apocalyptia drifts into a backwoods town surrounded by haunting swamplands?
