Bethesda has announced "Dead Money", the first downloadable content for Fallout: New Vegas, which released last month on PC, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360.
As reported earlier by Game Console, the DLC will launch first on Xbox 360 through a timed exclusivity arrangement (as it did with Fallout 3). Dead Money will cost 800 MS Points and will release on December 21st.
A press release from Bethesda details Dead Money as follows: "As the victim of a raw deal you must work alongside three other captured wastelanders to recover the legendary treasure of the Sierra Madre Casino. In Dead Money, your life hangs in the balance as you face new terrain, foes, and choices. It is up to you how you play your cards in the quest to survive."
“We’re pleased to give fans a chance to expand their experience in Fallout: New Vegas this December with Dead Money,” said Pete Hines, VP of PR and marketing for Bethesda Softworks. “The release of Dead Money illustrates our commitment to creating entertaining add-on content for players to enjoy in already massive games like Fallout: New Vegas.”
Fallout: New Vegas released to widespread critical acclaim, despite the fact that it also launched with a considerable number of bugs that are yet to be rectified. The press release from Bethesda contained no information about a further patch for the game on any platform.
