Imagine our surprise when we woke up this morning to discover Electronic Theatre reporting that Fallout 3's 'Operation: Anchorage' and 'The Pitt' DLC would both be released at retail in a single package. We made a quick check on Amazon and, sure enough, there it is. According to Amazon, the packaged will be released for both PC and Xbox 360 on May 26 (Electronic Theatre is reporting May 29 for the UK) for $19.99. Both packs are currently $10 apiece, so the retail package won't save you any money, but the box says it comes with a free Vault Boy poster, so that's something, right?

Curiously absent from the package is the upcoming 'Broken Steel' DLC. We would think a (presumably) $30 package that added 12-15 hours to Fallout 3 and made it open-ended would be a no-brainer, but apparently Bethesda has other plans.

We've contacted Bethesda for further details and will update this post when we have new information.
