Dead Money Trailer Revealed, New Vegas Patch Completed

Bethesda has unveiled the trailer for Dead Money, the first DLC for Fallout: New Vegas, and the big New Vegas “comprehensive patch” is finally live across all platforms.

When we first heard about Dead Money back in November, it sounded like an Oceans 11-esque heist caper in which a bunch of post-nuclear thieves get some payback for a raw deal by stealing the legendary treasure of the Sierra Madre Casino. But now that the launch trailer is out, it looks less Rat Pack and more Wedlock: your motivation to rob the casino isn’t greed or revenge but an explosive collar around your neck. And don’t underestimate the importance of your three partners in crime, either, because as the mysterious man in shadows warns, “If one of you dies, you all die.”

Bethesda also announced that the “comprehensive patch” for Fallout: New Vegas went live for the Xbox 360 this morning, meaning that all three versions of the game should now be in a relatively solid state. It’s a big fix, covering everything from DLC errors and save game corruption to general issues with crafting, companions, Hardcore mode, perks, skills and a pile of other stuff, plus quest-specific fixes for 41 separate quests. Yes, Fallout: New Vegas was a buggy mess indeed.

A full list of fixes in the latest and greatest Fallout: New Vegas patch can be found at the Bethesda Blog; Dead Money, meanwhile, will be available exclusively for the Xbox 360 on December 21, while dates for the PC and PS3 versions have yet to be announced.
