Bethesda Softworks announced today that three new pieces of DLC will be are on the way for Fallout: New Vegas. The packs are titled Honest Hearts, Old World Blues and Lonesome Road.
Honest Hearts will be the first of the newly announced content to be released on May 17 and will send players to Utah’s Zion National Park. In Honest Hearts, players find themselves trying to survive in an ongoing conflict after being ambushed by a roving band of tribal warriors. Players will have to choose their decisions carefully, because Bethesda says that they’ll directly shape the future of Zion.
Coming sometime during June is Old World Blues. While playing through this quest line, gamers will be forced into the role of a lab rat participating in some sort of failed science experiment. Bethesda says that “you’ll need to scour the Pre-War research centers 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.” The takeaway here is the discovery of how the mutant freaks that terrorize the Mohave Wasteland came into existence.
The last piece of content, Lonesome Road, will drop in July. This pack will bring “the courier’s story full circle”. Wasteland wanderers will somehow come into contact with Ulysses – the original Courier Six. Ulysses outright rejected the task of delivering the platinum chip that caused so much trouble in New Vegas. He’s willing to provide you with the reason why he turned down the job, but you’ll have to carry out the classic “one last job” before he’ll spill the beans. Why doesn’t he just do it himself? Probably because it involves venturing into the “hurricane-swept canyons of the Divide, a landscape torn apart by earthquakes and violent storms.”
Each piece of DLC will run 800 MS points on the 360 or $9.99 on all other platforms.
