Fallout 3 DLC to be several hours long

Exclusive to PC and 360, remember.

Bethesda voice Pete Hines has claimed downloadable content for Fallout 3 will be several hours long and will include an entirely new quest line. What no horse armour?

"We want stuff that's going to be several hours. Not just like a one-off thing, but something like where you can download it and play it for X number of hours," Hines told ShackNews.

"It'll be similar to what we did with Knights of the Nine in Oblivion, where it's like whole new quest lines, new stuff, that kind of thing.

"We want to do stuff like that, where it's adding hours of tangible stuff to the experience. And it plugs into your existing game, so whether you're starting a new game, or you're playing for 40 hours, you can go off and play this," said Hines.

Bethesda revealed during E3 that downloadable Fallout 3 content would only be available on Xbox 360 and PC, but not PS3. Apparently work on is well under way, too.

"We stopped doing content a pretty good way before we finished the game in terms of adding new stuff. So we already have folks starting to look into what [the DLC] might be," added Hines.

Fallout 3 is a post-apocalyptic and mature role-playing game due out for PC, Xbox 360 and PS3 on 31st October.
