Fans of Fallout: New Vegas have been wondering when the next set of downloadable content for the title would arrive, and today, Bethesda has announced their plans for the new DLC. Bethesda has three expansions in the works for the game: Honest Hearts, Old World Blues, and Lonesome Road. Honest Hearts, the first to be released of the three, will be available on Xbox 360, PS3, and PC simultaenously on May 17th.
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 June, Bethesda plans to unload round number two of the content with Old World Blues.
In Old World Blues, 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.
The third installment, Lonesome Road, will be available in July.
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.
In the meantime, Bethesda has issued a major patch for the game to alleviate some of the glitches that launched with the title, such as the freezing issues that were occurring on the Xbox 360 and PS3.
