Dash Text: [ESRB: M (Mature) BLOOD AND GORE,INTENSE VIOLENCE,SEXUAL THEMES,STRONG LANGUAGE,USE OF DRUGS] Pittsburgh was once the industrial center of the pre-war world. The city was spared the horrors of nuclear fire, only to have its people infected by a nightmare plague of disease, infection, and mutation.  Travel to the ruins of this industrial city, now called The Pitt, and discover a secret that could send shockwaves through the entire Wasteland. Battle vicious mutated Trogs, employ deadly new weapons like the AutoAxe and Infiltrator silenced assault rifle, and decide the fate of the infected slaves and slavers that call this city home. Only you can find the cure – but will you have the guts to use it? There are no refunds for this item. For more information, see

Purchase The Pitt and add it to your Xbox 360 download queue


Edit: There are some issues with The Pitt. It has been pulled down from the service and Bethesda is looking into it


Update:We have a team of people working with Bethesda on the availability of The Pitt and we will re-post an updated version on Xbox LIVE Marketplace as soon as possible. For anyone who purchased the initial version of The Pitt, you’ll need to delete the title from your storage device and re-download the final version once it’s available.

  • TWAK

    It is available in Canada, but only in french, lol.

  • Cayne

    Is it unbroken yet?

  • Mr BoomStick XL

    Like everyone here I am as diappointed as the next guy but this IS Bethesda and they are always on top of their products!! It was a little rediculous seeing the red glowing (!) marks all over the place though!!


    Nope, it’s still ‘borked’.

  • SumHydroponic

    Hurry up with this please impatient consumers are waiting.

  • bknight2k

    The Pit is a time exclusive for the PC


    This bug is great news for all of you. We all know how much you guys like to b!tch.

    “This bug is great news for all of you. We all know how much you guys like to b!tch.”

    Funny, how MS is never short on giving it’s customers reasons too.

    It’s like a daily trainwreck when it comes to quality and MS in the same sentence.

  • UNSCleric

    This sucks.

  • wolfzero01

    so does anyone know if you’ve already purchased The Pitt, and deleted it because of the problems, you can go to your download history to re-download it once it is fixed and not get charged again?

  • bknight2k

    wolfzero01 you can delete it.
    You also ask MS for a refund or just redown load it when a fix comes out which should be tommorow

  • TheGrooveJesus

    I would not worry about this. Bethesda has released AMAZING games and always try to keep their games at top-notch. I guarantee that they will have it fixed tomorrow.

  • Danowat32

    Come on Major, while there are updates galore on this DLC snafoo, the midnight club debacle continues without ANY word from ANYONE.

    Just what the hey is happening?, surely you can contact someone from either the marketplace, or Rockstar, rather than let us sit here wondering what the hey is going on?, surely its not too much to ask for a little information?

  • rogXue

    Major, How does this work if you are currently in the DLC area? I really do not want to delete and possibly corrupt my save file (over 70 hrs) Could you look into that for us?

  • Vonkroll

    Any word yet on wether it will back on marketplace later today?

    I just got word that The Pitt DLC is now uploading and should be available for download sometime this evening. When it is up, I’ll let everyone know.

    In the meantime, if you downloaded the corrupted content, you’ll want to delete it.

    From the Xbox 360 dashboard:

    * Select My Xbox

    * Select System Settings

    * Select Memory

    * Select Hard Drive

    * Select Games

    * Select Fallout 3

    * From there, you’ll find your game saves and DLC content. Just delete The Pitt DLC file.

    When the new version of The Pitt becomes available, you’ll be able to re-download it at no additional cost.


    Thanks for the info, HeavenOrHell.
