Fallout 3 was great, but it was lacking in one important facet: Battling the forces of communism. Expect this to be rectified in the game's first DLC pack: "Operation Anchorage," which Bethesda recently detailed for IGN. The four to five hour, 800-point ($10) campaign is a simulation of what producer Jeff Gardiner calls the "famous liberation of Anchorage from Fallout lore." That's right, virtually simulated red Chinese: Your days are numbered.

In the stealth/action focused mission, you'll fight your way into a Chinese base with new tools and perks at your disposal that will be exclusive to the DLC. IGN's got a lot more info, including Bethesda's plan is to increase the level cap with the third piece of DLC, Broken Steel. The wait for next year just got a little longer.
