Bethesda has delayed the first batch of Fallout 3 downloadable content for PlayStation 3 until September, citing the need for more testing.

The company has also decided that Broken Steel will be the first add-on available, because it's "easily the most requested DLC from our fans," according to Bethesda's Ashley Chen, writing on the US PlayStation blog. Broken Steel raises the level cap to 30 and opens the game past the conclusion of the main campaign.

Chen says Operation: Anchorage and The Pitt will follow "shortly thereafter" and probably simultaneously, with Point Lookout and Mothership Zeta to be available "as soon as we can".

We've asked Bethesda whether this will affect the October release of Fallout 3: Game of the Year Edition, which bundles all five pieces of DLC.
