Bethesda dates fourth full add-on for Obsidian-developed open-world RPG; two more DLC packs to launch September 27.
The latest Fallout: New Vegas downloadable content has endured a long and winding path to release, but it appears to be close to its terminus. Bethesda today announced that Lonesome Road will launch for Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and PC gamers on September 20.
In the add-on, players are contacted by the original Courier Six, who refused to deliver the Platinum Chip at the beginning of the main Fallout: New Vegas campaign. Gamers will be offered the reason for his refusal if they agree to venture into the Divide, which has been ravaged by earthquakes and hurricanes. Lonesome Road was originally set for a July release, but Bethesda missed that window, explaining earlier this month that "circumstances outside our control" forced the company to push the content's release back.
That won't be the last of New Vegas' DLC, as Bethesda has also confirmed two additional add-ons for release on September 27. The first of those, Courier's Stash, will compile the four add-ons originally used as preorder incentives for the game, giving players access to the weapons and clothing included therein. Also out on the same day will be the Gun Runners' Arsenal pack. The artillery-focused add-on will include a variety of weapons and weapon mods, as well as additional ammo types and recipes.
Lonesome Road will sell for $10 on Steam, PlayStation Network, and Xbox Live Marketplace. Courier's Stash will sell for $2, while the Gun Runners' Arsenal will cost $4. For more on Fallout: New Vegas, check out GameSpot's review.
Its a great Game I play on PC only and There are small Bugs but dam For the Amount of Content The ease in Getting new Mobs and New stuff installed and the In depth way u can play this game its one of my all time Favs.
i see wher they cume from they shoud not of rusht it hofley the next whun whill be beter if they make whun that is hofley they whill
i don't usually do this, but seeing as so many add-ons are being released, i think i'll buy this again when the story is finally finished.
@ avenger_20: I completely agree! Or at the very least KvO should have said in his review that the bugs mentioned would most likely be addressed in patches to come. Make the average gamer aware that his review is on a just-shipped build of the game that was released too soon. I understand that the bugs, glitches and crashes should never have been included when the game shipped, but as with Fallout 3, within a month of release glitches are patched.
sweet, I'm really glad they're pushing DLC with New Vegas. Gives me high hopes for the next game in the series...... and Skyrim :)
I think the weapon mods one and the preorder one should be free. EDIT: In fact, that would be a nice apology and excuse to go back to play with some patching. Though we still need some more patches that fix ALL that broke with the latest patches, they do wonders to the performance, but so much went to hell...
I'll think about it when they are half off. And what's up with the comment counter...I see this kind of thing all the time..."29 Comments (30 New)". How can there be more new comments then total comments?
i love new vegas cause it STILL reminds me of fallout 1 and 2 more than 3 does....but don't get me wrong i LOVE Fallout 3 ALOT
Still have yet to play the add-ons, but I look forward to, especially if a bundled version comes out. Not sure about paying for a few extra weapons though, but as much as I enjoy playing this game, I might look into it.
I don't care what anyone says; I loved Fallout: New Vegas. I'll definitely get the new mission DLC. And while I usually never go for weapon or item DLC, I think I'll probably give those a go at the $2 and $4 price points, too.
Defintely will get it, have all of the previous dlc, not sure if will get the Courier's Stash and Gun Runners' Arsenal though
@dylan417 - Its pretty obvious - Fallout New Vegas Complete Edition. I just hope they put the DLC on sale soon so I'l buy it. I got Dead Money for 400 MSP.
I wonder what they are going to call the dlc bundle, because this game sure as hell wasn't game of the year.
Darn it! It's coming out the SAME day as Gears of War 3... Bah, and I'm still working on Old World Blues. Now I've got to make a difficult decision on what I want to do more on that day. The article details that the preorder packs will all be bundled together, but I have the Mercenary Pack. (Best Buy preorder) I'm wondering if each of the packs will be sold seperately as well? Hoping so, if not can probably do without it. Gun Runners mods... Mmh, I'm hoping for more melee/unarmed choices as far as weapon mods go, there are only two weapons in melee/unarmed that have mods and both are DLC. Would like to see them round it out. I know, I know, it's *Gun* Runners Arsenal Pack, just saying, you know... Would be nice? :D
I lent out my copy of New Vegas a couple months ago and just got it back last week so I started a new character and it does feel like the game has been much improved since release...... I honestly wish Obsidian would have taken more time to iron out any glitches before release..... ...And I finally did complete Dead Money but I doubt I'll ever force myself to play through it again, worst quest ever! I did like the companions though...and weapons...... Now I want to see what the other DLC's for New Vegas have to offer.......
I played Fallout 3 but held New Vegas off till they patched it. Thank god i waited cause when I buy New Vegas, i'll get all the DLC making my first play through freakin' epic!! Lonesome Road sounds sweet.
Nice! If it is as awesome as Old World Blues I will definatly pick this up. Old World Blues was not only the best Fallout DLC yet, but the best DLC I have evern gotten period. Awesome story, good characters, interesting dialogue, great times.
