— official description

Point Lookout is the fourth add-on for Fallout 3, developed and published by Bethesda Softworks.

Release and availability

Point Lookout was initially released exclusively as downloadable content on Xbox Live and Games for Windows Live on June 23, 2009. It was made available for PlayStation Store on October 8, 2009. For Xbox 360, download codes for Xbox Live are also available in retail.

For PC and Xbox 360, Point Lookout is available as a disc version as part of the second Fallout 3 Game Add-on Pack, released on August 25, 2009. The pack also includes Broken Steel.

Like all add-ons, Point Lookout is included in the Fallout 3: Game of the Year Edition, released on October 13, 2009 for all platforms.

For Steam users, Point Lookout, along with all the other Fallout 3 add-ons, is available, released on July 16, 2010.


Point Lookout

In this add-on, the Lone Wanderer journeys to forgotten Point Lookout State Park and the sleepy and abandoned tourist town of Point Lookout. The town has become overgrown in the past two centuries and swampy marshlands dominate the region where the bombs didn't actually fall, but the world left it behind.

After being enticed by promises of unusual locales and hidden treasures, the Lone Wanderer jumps aboard a steamship, the Duchess Gambit and travels down the Potomac to coastal town of Point Lookout. Upon arriving, Tobar the Ferryman remarks about the smoke coming from the old Calvert Mansion. Tobar claims that it's said to be haunted, but filled with pre-War treasure and urges the Lone Wanderer to investigate it. Inside, the Lone Wanderer stumbles upon a power struggle centuries old and soon to be ended.

Like all add-ons (except for Broken Steel), Point Lookout is playable at any time during the main storyline; the player could travel there immediately after exiting Vault 101. Once the content is loaded, you receive a message on-screen that initially starts the quest The Local Flavor. As with previous add-ons, the main quest line is said to add about 3 to 4 hours worth of game time.

  • Unlike other add-ons, the player doesn't need to complete the main quest in order to travel back to the Capital Wasteland. Provided they can pay the ticket cost, the Duchess Gambit will travel back and forth at any time. It takes a month (30 days) of game time to travel to Point Lookout.
