Released on June 23, for Xbox 360 & Games for Windows Live

This add-on will be the fourth in the DLC for Fallout 3, and it will be played almost entirely on a new swampland environment, the equivalent to the Point Lookout State Park in the real world, with a new main quest and several sidequests.

On this map you will not see the usual post-nuclear scenario, but more of a dark, creepy and forgotten swamp, with deformed (however not radioactive) hill folk enemies and insane cultists called Tribals. You are transported to Point Lookout by a ferryman, then you arrive to an old boardwalk amusement park with a Ferris wheel and a lot of carnival games for you to explore. Up in a hill, near the lighthouse, you will find a creepy Mansion with high-tech surveillance cameras ,and a big battle awaits you inside...

This expansion it's more aimed to exploration than high-tech and fast-paced battles in the other DLC's, as there is few new weapons and are all low-tech like the Double-barrel Shotgun, shovel, axe and the Repeating Rifle. It's recommended to start at the level 17 and even so it will prove to be a challenge to complete the main quest. As usual there will be new perks and achievements but the level cap stays on 30.
