Fallout: New Vegas got off to quite the rocky start last fall after release. Immediatley after release there were reports of the game being riddled with bugs and glitches, and in some cases leaving the game un playable. Fallout fans for the most part did not seem to care, apparently Fallout 3 left a good enough taste in everyones mouth to dismiss New Vegas’s issues and game on. Since release, New Vegas has been patched significantly and has got the game in great working order.
It looks like Bethesda is ready to put the past behind them, becasue they have announced 3 new DLC packs that will be supporting New Vegas over the summer. So if you’ve switched to online games like Poker.dk while the New Vegas problems were being ironed out, then the wait might nearly be over – but it comes at a cost. Each add on will be $9.99, and release about one month after one another. This almost reminded me of how Rockstar planned their DLC for Red Dead Redemption. The new Add Ons are called Honest Hearts, Old World Blues, and Lonesome Road. Below is a description of each add on directly from Bethesda:
Honest Hearts™, Old World Blues™ and Lonesome Road™ will further expand upon Fallout: New Vegas. Fallout: New Vegas takes all the action, humor and post-apocalyptic grime and grit of this legendary series, and raises the stakes.
Available on May 17, Honest Hearts takes you on an expedition to the unspoiled wilderness of Utah’s Zion National Park. Things go horribly wrong when your caravan is ambushed by a tribal raiding band. As you try to find a way back to the Mojave, you become embroiled in a war between tribes and a conflict between a New Canaanite missionary and the mysterious Burned Man. The decisions you make will determine the fate of Zion.
In Old World Blues, releasing in June,you will discover how some of the Mojave’s mutated monsters came to be when you unwittingly become a lab rat in a science experiment gone awry. 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.
Lonesome Road, available in July, brings the courier’s story full circle when you are contacted by the original Courier Six, a man by the name of Ulysses who refused to deliver the Platinum Chip at the start of New Vegas. In his transmission, Ulysses promises the answer as to why, but only if you take one last job –a job that leads you into the depths of the hurricane-swept canyons of the Divide, a landscape torn apart by earthquakes and violent storms. The road to the Divide is a long and treacherous one, and of the few to ever walk the road, none have ever returned.
