Fallout 3 is the Pitts

Just when you thought you were safe from the stupidity, Bethesda has released information on the second of their downloadable content packages, The Pitt, through OXM. Computer and Video Games has some information available from the magazine. Taking place in the ruins of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, The Pitt features more of what everyone loved about Fallout 3:
For the first time players will be able to interact with Raiders other than by fighting them, says the mag, and one major quest has you taking on the role of a slave, investigating rumours that the Raider boss has found a cure for mutation.
Oh wait, maybe Bethesda is changing...maybe they've found the spirit of Fallout.
The Pitt consists of a large 'dungeon' area, an abandoned steel yard, as well as a settlement divided into two halves; Downtown, occupied by slaves, and Haven occupied by their masters.
Side quests and unique items are promised, naturally, including the fearsome-looking Auto Axe, which a bit like a chainsaw crossed with a Black & Decker hedge trimmer.
Nope. More dungeons and goofy weaponry.
Check out NMA for a few screenshots, including one of the Shoveler wielding what appears to be the "Auto Axe".
