... but you can't unlock them until the new DLC comes out

Bethesda's released a new patch for the PC and Xbox 360 versions of Fallout 3, adding new Achievements for the forthcoming Broken Steel DLC pack.

"This was a big one folks - both in terms of the title update and the downloadable content. In addition to all the new goodies for Broken Steel, we did fix some bugs as well."
