Three more packs of goodness to come for Fallout: New Vegas players.
The folks at Bethesda have given us a bit of an update to what’s going to happen next with Fallout: New Vegas, Bethesda’s most recent entry into the Fallout universe in terms of DLC, with plans revealed that discuss three more Downloadable Content packs to download.
Firstly, there’s the Honest Hearts DLC package, pictured above, which will take you to the “wilderness” that is Utah’s Zion National Park. There’s story here, and an ambush to keep things spicy. After finding your way back to the Mojave wasteland, you’ll find yourself caught amongst a war between “tribes” and conflict. Real juicy stuff, you know. This pack is set to be released on May 17th.
Then there’s the Old World Blues DLC for New Vegas, and this pack, releasing in June, will teach you of the ways some of Mojave’s mutated creatures came to be after a science experiment went balls up. You’ll peruse the “Pre-War research centers of the Big Empty” to find technology to use either against your kidnappers, or go the other side of the proverbial moral coin and join forces with them to take out an even bigger threat.
Finally, the Lonesome Road DLC for the game will be released in July, and will “bring the courier’s story full circle” when you meet Courier Six, or Ulysses, who didn’t return the Platinum Chip at the beginning of New Vegas‘ story. He’ll tell you why if you can finish off one last mission for him. This mission will take you to the canyons of the Divide, the path to which will be a long and difficult one. As Bethesda’s press release says, “of the few to ever walk the road, none have ever returned.”
All downloadable content packs for Fallout: New Vegas will cost 800 Microsoft Points on the Xbox LIVE Marketplace, $9.99 on the PlayStation Store, and on Steam and Direct2Drive for PC players for the same $9.99.
