Pete Hines, VP of marketing and PR for Bethesda, stood in front of those screens. He played, he talked. This is what I found out.
It's only fair to warn you that, thanks to the nature of the DLC, there are some spoilers up ahead. Most of them aren't very dramatic, save for one that is clearly marked. You need to decide right now how sensitive to mild spoilers you are. Anyway, on with the show...
First things first – it's out on May 5th. That's two short weeks from today. Now you know!
HERE THERE BE SPOILERS - BIG ONES - REALLY BIG
If you finished the main game already, you know that you kick the bucket. Being dead is generally understood to be a handicap when it comes to getting about and getting stuff done. To that end, Bethesda has changed the game's climax. Where once upon a time you would have had a reactor to sort out by yourself, now you send in one of your mates. You live! Which means you get to carry on from where you left off – happy news for many an irked player who didn't have a saved game to go back to after they finished the game.
END OF SPOILERS
Hines further noted, when asked, that Broken Steel doesn't end the game. “God, that'd be stupid... We got the message”, he said. The DLC leaves Fallout 3 open for players to keep on wandering around the map – a feature that will be massively important for many.
Hines was understandably reluctant to give away too many plot points, for spoilers' sake, but as he fired up the game in front of Project Purity (now up and running), he revealed that a large part of it revolves around The Brotherhood of Steel's ongoing battle with The Enclave. It's also all well and good having clean water, but getting that out to folk isn't necessarily that easy a task...
