Held back due to an unforeseen delay, Bethesda Softworks has now announced a new and official release date for Lonesome Road, the fourth downloadable expansion pack for Fallout: New Vegas. Originally expected to release last month, it will now be available via digital download on August 20th. The expansion will set you back $9.99 or 800 Microsoft Points.
In Lonesome Road, players are contacted by Courier Six – the man who originally refused to deliver the Platinum Chip at the beginning of Fallout: New Vegas‘ campaign. Ulysses piques the main character’s interest by offering to explain why he refused to take the job. Though, he’ll only divulge the secret after you make one last journey into the hurricane-swept canyons of Divide, a landscape torn apart by earthquakes and other violent storms. It’s up to you as to whether you take the job or not.
Two other downloadable content packs for the game will also be available for download starting on September 27th. They will be:
Courier’s Stash: Gives players access to four content bundles which were previously only available through pre-ordering the game. There’s the Caravan Pack, the Classic Pack, the Mercenary Pack and the Tribal Pack. Each offers unique weapons, apparel and aid advantages that will help you through your journey. It will be available for 160 Microsoft Points or $1.99 on PSN and Steam.
Gun Runners’ Arsenal: Increases the range of unique weapons, weapon mods, ammo types and recipes which are waiting to be uncovered in the vast Mojave Wasteland. It will be available for download for 320 Microsoft Points or $3.99 on PlayStation Network.
