Fallout New Vegas DLC

Let's hope for Chinese Stealth Armour that works!

This won’t exactly be a shock to anyone, but Bethesda have today announced details and release dates of the upcoming DLC for Fallout: New Vegas.  Based on the information supplied below, Honest Hearts sounds like it may end up being the smaller of the three, but will hopefully still give us enough fodder while we wait on the next installment in the Fallout franchise.  As long as they’re as enjoyable as Point Lookout was and not repetitive nonsense like Mothership Zeta, then I’m sure everything will be dandy.

That said, if they don’t patch the game to allow us to play from the point of completing New Vegas then these will sit unplayed.  While I may have Dead Money ready to play, I for one see no point until I can continue from the Legate’s Camp as I don’t intend to lose that rather swishy helmet and sword by starting from a previous save!  Here’s what the press release had to say…

Honest Hearts™, Old World Blues™ and Lonesome Road™ will further expand upon Fallout: New Vegas. Fallout: New Vegas takes all the action, humour and post-apocalyptic grime and grit of this legendary series and raises the stakes.

Available on May 17th for Xbox 360 and Windows-based PCs and May 18th for PlayStation®3, Honest Hearts takes you on an expedition to the unspoiled wilderness of Utah’s Zion National Park. Things go horribly wrong when your caravan is ambushed by a tribal raiding band. As you try to find a way back to the Mojave you become embroiled in a war between tribes and a conflict between a New Canaanite missionary and the mysterious Burned Man. The decisions you make will determine the fate of Zion.

In Old World Blues, releasing in June, you will discover how some of the Mojave’s mutated monsters came to be when you unwittingly become a lab rat in a science experiment gone awry. You’ll need to scour the Pre-War research centres of the Big Empty in search of technology to turn the tables on your kidnappers or join forces with them against an even greater threat.

Lonesome Road, available in July, brings the courier’s story full circle when you are contacted by the original Courier Six, a man by the name of Ulysses who refused to deliver the Platinum Chip at the start of New Vegas. In his transmission, Ulysses promises the answer as to why, but only if you take one last job –a job that leads you into the depths of the hurricane-swept canyons of the Divide, a landscape torn apart by earthquakes and violent storms. The road to the Divide is a long and treacherous one, and of the few to ever walk the road, none have ever returned.

All downloadable content for Fallout: New Vegas will be available for download on Xbox LIVE® for 800 Microsoft Points, the PlayStation®Network for €9.99 / £7.49, and both Steam and Direct2Drive for €9.99 / £7.49.

    Thats a very well laid out schedule for Black Isle and Bethesda, no spread whatsoever really between the trio. I don’t think I’ve ever known DLC to be so concurrent!

    I was on the edge of my seat for a while about the DLC as there was just no news for ages and when Bethesda held an publicity event in Park City, Utah and didn’t showcase anything about Honest Hearts I got worried. Not to mention the recent layoffs at Obsidian, not quite sure where Black Isle games come into the mix though Adam? Still I believe they did the same type of thing with Fallout 3, stated 1 dlc per month over a period but it kinda fell apart when the dates got closer, I’m surprised they have the time with the vast release schedual they have upcoming.
