Fallout 3 Downloadable Content pushed back


Recently, the Broken Steel downloadable content for Fallout 3 (which is supposed to get released in mid-March) is going to be released in mid-April instead. The reason for this is unknown, but some people say that it's because they want to release their other downloadable content first. Broken Steel is an important expansion as it allows the player to continue the main quest, and most importantly, it extends the players maximum level to 30 instead of 20.

Mythic Map Pack: Sandbox revealed


Bungie recently showed off their last map of the Mythic Map Pack to the public. This map is called Sandbox. Sandbox is "a map unlike any we have ever made before" says one of the designers of it. The reason why its so unique is that not only will players be able to play on the ground, they will be able to play in the sky as well. Sandbox lets players build maps in Forge in the Skybox, something that the halo community has been doing through tricking since the game was released 2 years ago. With this new ability, players will no longer need to trick in order to make their floating objects.

The Mythic Map Pack will cost 800 Microsoft points (around $10.00) and will be released March 3rd. You can also get the Mythic Map Pack for free and one week early when you buy the Halo Wars Collector's Edition, or you can wait until Halo 3 ODST gets released in the fall and get ALL the map packs for free plus 3 exclusive maps.
