Fallout 3 available for pre-order via Steam

What drives the turbines at a nuclear power plant? Steam. Where can you now pre-order and pre-load Fallout 3? Steam. The product page for Bethesda's post-apocalypse RPG has gone live, offering PC gamers the opportunity to play the game at 12:01 a.m. on its official release date, Oct. 28.

The game is selling for $49.99 via the service, the same price the non-special edition version would set you back in box-and-disc form. You can check out Fallout 3's system requirements in our earlier post, just to be ready. See you in the Wasteland!
