Fallout: New Vegas announces three new expansions

fallout new vegas announces three expansionsIf you have followed the recent Fallout games, it should come as no surprise that Bethesda and Obsidian Entertainment are not yet done with Fallout: New Vegas. After all, there was only the 40-ish hour game, and a DLC called “Dead Money”. Overall, many gamers were only able to squeeze a piddly 80+ hours or so out of the game. If you don’t know that is sarcasm, go play a game like Homefront and its 4-5 hour campaign, then come back.

The Fallout series is known for its content. The game is packed with things to do–from missions, to exploration, to weapon customization–so to hear that there are three more full expansions on the way really shouldn’t come as a surprise—Fallout 3 had decent length DLCs, so the precedent has already been set.

Today Bethesda announced details on the future of Fallout: New Vegas, which will come in the shape of three new expansions, due over the summer.

The first of the DLCs is “Honest Hearts”, which takes you to Utah’s Zion Nation Park, where your caravan is ambushed by a tribal raiding party. As you try to make your way back to familiar ground, you become stuck in a growing conflict between a New Canaanite missionary and the enigmatic Burned Man. As is normal for Fallout, your choices will determine the outcome. “Honest Hearts” will be available on PC, PS3 and Xbox 360 on May 17.

The second DLC, “Old World Blues” explains the origin of some of the worst Mojave mutations, as you yourself become an unwilling participant in a science experiment. To fight off your kidnappers, you will need to search pre-war instillations in the Big Empty. Of course, you can always join them to fight off an even bigger threat—the choice is yours when the expansion is released sometime in June.

Then in July the third DLC, “Lonesome Road”, features the original Courier Six, and the Platinum Chip that was supposed to be delivered at the start of Fallout: New Vegas. To learn the history of what happened and why the chip wasn’t delivered, you must complete a mission for the man known as Ulysses. But it won’t be easy—the job will take you through the hurricane-torn canyons of the Divide, a place where violent storms and earthquakes are common.

The DLCs will be available for the PC, PS3 and Xbox 360 at the same time, which is a change from the previous Fallout DLCs, which were delayed in reaching PS3.
