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.
