Bethesda Softworks Announces Creation Kit and

First Downloadable Content for Fallout 3

Editor to be Available in December; Downloadable Content coming for January,
February, and March

November 25, 2008 (ROCKVILLE, MD) – Bethesda Softworks(r), a ZeniMax Media
company, today announced plans to make both its editor and downloadable
content available for its award-winning game, Fallout(r) 3 in the coming
weeks. The official editor for Fallout 3, called the G.E.C.K. (Garden of Eden
Creation Kit), will be available for free download in December and will allow
Games for Windows(r) users to create and add their own content to the game.
In addition, the first official downloadable content, Operation: Anchorage,
will be available exclusively for the Xbox 360(r) video game and
entertainment system from Microsoft and Games for Windows(r) in January, and
more downloadable content coming in February and March.

“We’ve always seen the original world of Fallout 3 as a foundation for even
more content. Some created by us, and a lot more created by users,” said Todd
Howard, game director for Fallout 3. “It’s fun to create your own character,
but it can be equally fun to create your own adventures. We can’t wait to see
what the community does with the G.E.C.K.”

The release of the G.E.C.K. provides the community with tools that will allow
players to expand the game any way they wish. Users can create, modify, and
edit any data for use with Fallout 3, from building landscapes, towns, and
locations to writing dialogue, creating characters, weapons, creatures, and
more.

Three downloadable content packs will be coming to Xbox 360 and Games for
Windows Live starting in January that will add new quests, items, and content
to Fallout 3.

* Operation: Anchorage. Enter a military simulation and fight in one of
the greatest battles of the Fallout universe – the liberation of Anchorage,
Alaska from its Chinese Communist invaders. An action-packed battle scheduled
for release in January.
* The Pitt. Journey to the industrial raider town called The Pitt,
located in the remains of Pittsburgh. Choose your side. Scheduled for release
in February.
* Broken Steel. Join the ranks of the Brotherhood of Steel and rid the
Capital Wasteland of the Enclave remnants once and for all. Continues the
adventure past the main quest. Scheduled for release in March.

Released on October 28 in North America and in Europe October 30, Fallout 3
has been hailed as one of the most anticipated games of 2008, and received a
10 out of 10 review score from Official Xbox Magazine, a result then repeated
around the world with perfect scores by some of the industry’s most
influential and respected critics including: Gamespy, GamePro, UGO, the
Associated Press, MSN, The Washington Post, Guardian, FHM, G4-TV, The Toronto
Star, and Eurogamer. MSNBC’s review offered the observation that it viewed
“Fallout as a no-brainer for game of the year.” The Daily Star in the UK
echoed that conclusion, saying “You can hold all bets on game of the year – I
think we have a winner.”
