Fallout 3: 'Mothership Zeta' DLC gets release date, screens

The game's price will follow in the footsteps of the previous expansions

Today, Bethesda released some new screens and info from their upcoming Fallout 3: Mothership Zeta, along with the DLC's release date this summer.

Fallout 3's final downloadable expansion (out of the five announced that is), Mothership Zeta, will be making its way to gamers on Monday, August 3.

The game's price will follow in the footsteps of the previous expansions, going for a nifty 800 Microsoft Points ($10). The add-on will be directly available for the PC and Xbox 360, but as per usual, PlayStation 3 owners are going to have to wait a while until they can get their hands on it.

However, it is good to keep in mind that all five expansions will be bundled with the original game into a "Game of the Year Edition" which will arrive in October at $59.99 for the PS3/Xbox 360 and $49.99 on PC.

Added to the announcement is the release of some screens from the upcoming expansion as well as some info on the game, its story, and key features.

From Bethesda's Fallout official website:

Description:

Defy hostile alien abductors and fight your way off of the massive Mothership Zeta, orbiting Earth miles above the Capital Wasteland. Mothership Zeta takes Fallout 3 in an entirely new direction ? outer space. Meet new characters and join with them in a desperate bid to escape the Aliens? clutches. To do so, you?ll wield powerful new weapons, like the Alien Atomizer, Alien Disintegrator, and Drone Cannon, and deck yourself out in brand new outfits, like the Gemini-Era Spacesuit and even Samurai Armor.

Story:

A strange Alien signal is being broadcast throughout the Capital Wasteland, originating from a crashed UFO. Is it a distress call, or something far more sinister? That question is answered when you find yourself beamed aboard an enormous Alien spacecraft, with only one alternative ? to fight your way to the bridge of the ship and secure your escape.

Key Features:

* Find and exploit new and destructive alien technology, like the Alien Atomizer and Drone Cannon.

* Explore the vast Mothership and learn the secrets of the Aliens? master plan.

* Thwart the Aliens? attempt to stop your escape, and take over the Alien ship before it wreaks havoc on the unsuspecting Earth below.

* Fight against the Alien Invaders, their robot drones, and turn their own horrible experiments against them.

* Ally yourself with an unexpected array of characters, both from the Capital Wasteland and from Earth ?s past.

A smarter way to print for busy small business owners, combining speedy printing with scanning and copying, making it easier to produce high quality documents and images at a touch of a button.

I've had a multifunction printer in the office going on 10 years now. It was a neat bit of kit back in the day -- print, copy, scan, fax -- when printing over WiFi felt a bit like magic. It’s seen better days though and an upgrade’s well overdue. This HP OfficeJet Pro 8730 looks like it ticks all the same boxes: print, copy, scan, and fax. (Really? Does anyone fax anything any more? I guess it's good to know the facility’s there, just in case.) Printing over WiFi is more-or- less standard these days.

As a freelance writer who is always on the go, I like my technology to be both efficient and effective so I can do my job well. The HP OfficeJet Pro 8730 Inkjet Printer ticks all the boxes in terms of form factor, performance and user interface.

I’d happily recommend this touchscreen laptop and Windows 10 as a great way to get serious work done at a desk or on the road.

Ultimately, I think the Windows 10 environment is excellent for me as it caters for so many different uses. The inclusion of the Xbox app is also great for when you need some downtime too!

For me, the Xbox Play Anywhere is a great new feature as it allows you to play your current Xbox games with higher resolutions and better graphics without forking out extra cash for another copy. Although available titles are still scarce, but I’m sure it will grow in time.
