[edit] Overview

Point Lookout is based on the Point Lookout State Park in Maryland. It's the most open-ended DLC pack released so far, it's about one fifth the size of the Capital Wasteland and has over 25 new locations to discover. Point Lookout is described as a forgotten land, it wasn't directly hit by the bombs during the great war but the radiation and other effects from the bombs have transformed it into a swampland.

[edit] Plot

After downloading the DLC a message will appear on your screen informing you that a ferry called the Duchess Gambit has docked at the Riverboat Landing in the Capital Wasteland and is looking to take tourists to Point Lookout where they can seek riches. Once you arrive at the Riverboat Landing you'll have to pay 300 Caps to Tobar who owns the ferry, he'll tell you that people travel to Point Lookout looking to loot riches from a forgotten part of the world.

Upon arrival you'll see an old mansion with smoke coming from the roof, Tobar will mention that you should check it out. Inside the mansion you'll find a Ghoul named Desmond who needs your help to fight off a hoard of local Tribals, who have attacked his mansion without reason. After helping Desmond, he makes it your job to find out the reason behind this peaceful tribe's attack.
