Bethesda has take the wraps off of their Fallout 3: Operation Anchorage DLC by sharing a variety of information about the update in a new interview on IGN.
IGN: The liberation of Anchorage must have taken place before the entire country was destroyed. How different will the art style be for this download?The update will hit Microsoft's Live Marketplace in January for $10.
Gardiner: Anchorage has a vastly different art style. It's taking place in the frozen north; so you have a very bright ice/snow color pallet. We've had a massive amount of art resources at our disposal, most of what the player will experience was created from scratch. We've also taken a lot of time to create a bunch of 'animation vignettes' to make the soldiers and other NPCs interact with the world in better, more convincing ways then anything we were able to do with the Fallout 3 main game.
IGN: Will Operation Anchorage include anything aside from new quests? Can we expect new weapons and armor to outfit our last best hope of humanity? What about new achievements?
Gardiner: It will include new weapons, armor and achievements! It's full of top-secret technology used by both sides during the war, which the player will of course be able to use throughout the main game as well.
IGN: Will the download bring any new perks? My cannibal is hungry for more.
Gardiner: Yes, there will be a new perk included with the content! I won't get into details, but it's named "Covert Ops."
