Lonesome Road is meant to be the last DLC release from Obsidian Entertainment for Fallout: New Vegas, bringing a close to a story thread that’s run through each previous DLC release and the main game before them. Unfortunately, it seems that we’re going to be waiting a little longer before the full picture is revealed.
Bethesda Softworks had previously pegged Lonesome Road for an August release, but a new post on the publisher’s forums reveals that those plans have changed. “This isn’t due to any major issue with the code or content, but there are lots of factors involved in releasing these things, and one of those is causing us to slip past our intended release date,” senior producer Jason Bergman writes.
“We don’t have an exact date yet, but we’re working to get it out as quickly as possible. We’ll be announcing the final date, along with a couple of other interesting FNV-related items in the near future.”
In Lonesome Road, the Courier’s journey through the Mojave Wasteland and surrounding regions reaches its climax. I’m not going to drop any spoilers here out of respect for those who haven’t been keeping up, but all signs are pointing toward a significant showdown to capping off what is supposedly the final DLC release for New Vegas.
Bethesda also released the first screen from the upcoming expansion on its blog, which you can see above.
