Lots of New Vegas DLC Coming This Summer

image

Bethesda has dropped the deets on three upcoming Fallout: New Vegas DLC releases, including one that will finally shed some light on the history of the Courier.

We've known for awhile that the Fallout: New Vegas DLC Honest Hearts is coming soon, but now we know when, too: May 17, to be precise, and yes, that's for all three platforms. Honest Hearts will tell the tale of a conflict between a New Canaanite missionary and the legendary Burned Man, with the fate of Zion hanging on the decisions you make.

But there's more! Coming in June is Old World Blues, which will reveal the origins of some of the Mojave's mutated beasts by dropping you in the middle of an experiment gone wrong. Pre-war research centers in the Big Empty may hold the technology you need to outwit your kidnappers - or you may find yourself joining them to stand against an even greater threat.

And that's not all! In July, if everything goes according to plan, Lonesome Road will debut, and this sounds like it'll be the big one. The original Courier Six, a man by the name of Ulysses [who might sound familiar to you if you purchased the New Vegas Collectors Edition or read this], contacts you with a promise to explain his refusal to deliver the Platinum Chip to New Vegas, but only if you accept one last job that will take you into the ravaged canyons of the Divide, a journey from which no-one has ever returned.

Each Fallout: New Vegas DLC release will sell for 800 Microsoft Points on Xbox Live or $9.99 on the PlayStation Network, Steam and Direct2Drive, and in a nice twist, unlike the first DLC release Dead Money, will be released for the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PC simultaneously.

sounds good, i just hope it's better than the atrocity that was Dead Money. Never regretted purchasing DLC before that one....

Only Old World Blues sounds like my thing, from a plot standpoint, to be honest.

That said...it all truly depends on the loot the DLC adds. Not the story behind the DLC, for me. After all, the quests are temporary. The loot is forever. :)

I honestly consider Anchorage the best FO3 DLC due to the Power Armor and Stealth Suit.

All I want is a DLC that will let me continue playing after I've beaten the main story.

Old World Blues seems pretty cool though.

This should be good. Now to finally finish Dead Money.

Yeeeeeeeee! More continuation on the New Vegas story and dates as well! Now I have some motivation to go back and finish Dead Money.

That release schedule sounds a bit ambitious, but I'll look forward to it all the same.

Now, to go and purchase some Gamerpoints...

Old World Blues better not miss a note!

I wish I could exchange Gamerscore for MS points...

YOU.

WITH THE PUNS.

Keep up the good work. :)

I was wondering if they would include the burned man someway.

This sounds pretty cool, but at the same time, I remembered how bad New Vegas was, so... yeah... Maybe I should try getting mods for it, if there are any good ones?

Thanks for pointing that out, I'd have been wandering around the stores for ages!

Really? All you care about is loot? In that case, I wouldn't even bother with DLC; just use mods, assuming you're playing on PC. If all DLC did was add more armour and weapons, I'd save my money for something a little more substantial.

Funnily, enough, I actually consider the reverse: things come and go, but stories are forever.

All of them sound great!! looking forward to having 200+ hours on Fallout:NV

I don't have the PC version. This is honestly the only site I've ever been to with a PC gaming MAJORITY, btw.

Rest assured, if I did, I'd have so many weapon/armor mods.

And don't get me wrong. I still like a good story. It's just never my primary motivation. I'd never pay PURELY for weapons. Unless "Spell Tomes" for Oblivion counts.

Agreed =_= I'll be watching you...

...r posts...

Nifty. I've been wanting to play New Vegas for a while, and if they release an edition with all the DLC some point this summer I'll totally pick it up, but I can wait until there IS a complete edition.

That's assuming that the Playstation Network isn't all clusterf*cked by that point.

Sounds awesome. I enjoyed Dead Money. The weapons/perks and stuff it added were actually balanced with the rest of the game, unlike Fallout 3's Anchorage, which added a suit thats essentially an unlimited stealth boy, a super-strong shock-sword, and the really strong gauss rifle. Two weapons which when combined with the stealth suit completely break the game. And so I just don't use them, which turns Anchorage into a crappy experience with good loot into just a crappy experience.

Glad that New Vegas and Obsidian are avoiding that, hopefully they keep on avoiding it.

At last some concrete dates for the next dlc, still cannot decide if I should wait it out until all the dlc is out or just feed my fallout itch as soon as they come out.

That's ok. I just found it funny that you're focused mostly on loot in a game so heavily based on canon and backstory and such. Like I said, if what you get is a gun, then that's all it is: something that can shoot other things. There are already guns in the game, so it's really all just the same to me. But stories can evoke emotion, expose backstory in the world, change perspectives, provide new ideas, highlight old ones, etc.

That isn't so say that this is always the case, but I'd take a bad story over a good gun anyday of the week.

I'm thinking I'll just wait til around Christmas and pick it up when Steam has a special on it, but it is good to know more is coming.

Now how about releasing a patch that makes the game actually work? I still haven't played Dead Money because I can NOT get it to behave itself.

Zion national park? Unspoiled? Google Image Search tells me that this could be an incredible boon for an explorer-type player (such as myself).

Furthermore, since they're willing to wander a good ways outside the current game map for these DLCs (Zion being in Utah), it seems not unreasonable to me that Lonesome Road, set in the "Divide," actually takes place in and around the entire Grand Canyon. (Edit: Maybe people already knew this. I didn't...) Which, again, would be awesome for us explorer types.

The Burned Man looks fucking awesome.

Can has companion Burned Man, plox?

but cool we have a release date for the DLC's, planning on buying them all at once and finally going through New Vegas again from start to finish.

You should see me in Dragon Age.

I'm break my role-playing and preform an evil act in heartbeat for loot, if it's a minor quest overall. Remember that Deep Roads uber-demon quest?

Took the money and ran. On my good character.

Awesome. I'm pretty burnt out on New Vegas, but this new DLC should give me a reason to play some more.

I liked Dead Money, but hopefully these are significantly different from it.

DanielPowell33:

Yes, yes, and more yes. I would love this. That way you could actually SEE how your endgame decisions impacted the Mojave, instead of just having it told to you in a voiceover slideshow.

As for this DLC bonanza, I think I'll just wait for the GOTY edition or a Steam sale. Otherwise the cost comes out to about the same as just buying a whole new game.

this i was suprised about

Its funny because I was just wondering about the release date of just Honest Hearts last night on Twitter, glad to see that Obsidian didn't just answer that question but the next two after it as well. Can't wait to dive back into the game.

Aw man. I don't really need to spend another $30 on games this summer. I have to save up for the Fall! Damn you Bethesda/Obsidian!

Maybe some of these will go on sale on XBL...

YES! Finally! This makes me very excited for the summer.

You know, I'd like to be excited, but I'd like Bethesda to actually release a patch that doesnt break the game before we start talking about new dlc. Its especially frustrating playing this game on the pc. You finally get the game to work without crashing every 15 minutes, only for a new patch to get released and throw everything out of whack again...
