New Fallout 3 Screenshots Feature Bar-side Chat, Release of PC Mod Toolset Uncertain

By Chris Faylor, Jul 08, 2008 9:14am PDT Developer Bethesda has released three new screenshots from its post-apocalyptic RPG Fallout 3, detailing the game's combat and skills as well as the Megaton Bar.

Over on the game's official forum, Bethesda employee Todd Howard revealed that the PC edition will not, as past Bethesda games, pack an editor to allow user-created mods.

"If and when one is available, it will be a free download. I wish I could promise that an editor will be coming and when, but I can't," he explained. "It's a major undertaking getting an editor ready for release, and making sure the game plays nice with the data users create. That being said, we'd love to see it happen."

When asked if the title would feature romance, sex, homosexuality, nudity, prostitution, slavery, cannibalism, children, child killings, drugs or addictions, Howard responded that that game will not include child killing or nudity, but "features the types of things you mention at about the same rate [of the original Fallout]."

"Drugs and drug addiction play a larger role perhaps, as it's a key gameplay device," he elaborated.

Fallout 3 is slated to arrive on PC, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 this fall.
