If you're a Fallout fan, you're always on the lookout for expansion content. The more the better, right?

Today, Bethesda Softworks has announced three new downloadable packs for the critically acclaimed Fallout: New Vegas , which will be released for the PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and PC, starting on May 17.

The first is Honest Hearts, which brings you to the "unspoiled wilderness of Utah's Zion National Park." Things take a turn for the worst when your caravan is ambushed by a raiding party, and this kicks off a war between tribes; the decisions you make "will determine the fate of Zion." In Old World Blues, which will be ready in June, you'll learn how some of Mojave's monsters came into being…how? Um…you become a lab rat in a science experiment gone screwy. Lastly, there's Lonesome Road, set for July, which "brings the courier's story full circle when you are contacted by the original Courier Six." This mission will take you to the hurricane-swept canyons of the Divide, and few return from such a trip alive.

All packs will be available for $9.99 on the PlayStation Store and Steam, and 800 Microsoft Points on Xbox Live.

No kidding. Fallout 3 and Fallout Vegas had their fair share of them, that's for sure.

Bethesda announce i think about month or two ago their are going to be releasing a new patch to fix most of the bugs, especially the freezing, they just didn't tell when, expect the pc version would get it first.

New Vegas was a good game if you can get past the freezing, but it wasn't as good as Fallout 3. I wanted to crawl the wastes of Las Vegas, not gimp along in the desert most of the time only to find a teeny tiny street with a couple casinos.

I'll wait until they release a complete edition to get all the DLC, and at a very low price I think.

I'm glad Skyrim is coming so Bethesda can get to work on Fallout 4.

Buying the complete edition is my plan, but I don't exactly know when I will do it.

Way to many great games coming out this year, and with work becoming busier for me, not enough time to do it!!

Have to agree with you on your points. New Vegas was a disappointing discovery. I want a large town full of buildings and shops not just one street. F4 will have to be incredible for me to buy it.

Yeah New Vegas (the city) was a *huge* disappointment. Although I think you are supposed to include the surrounding zones as part of the city too.

But also the overall atmosphere was missing something I think. While in Fallout 3 I was really into most all the characters, their story and events, this time around I basically strolled across the desert, several times I'd even forgotten the story behind the current quest etc. That hardly ever happened in Fallout 3.

I traded in to get NV for £15 so I'll wait for the GoTY edition to be released and take a price drop then I'll trade in for that too.

When it was released people said lots of rubbish about it being really buggy and all sorts, the game was brilliant. There was 1 bug I (still) experienced in which you can walk into places and find people sitting in mid-air etc.

its ok to love the game, i personally like it a lot more than Fallout 3 but please, lets not pretend people made up stuff about the game having its fair share of bugs. Its the outdated engine thats responsible for it. All the slow downs, random freezes, and COUNTLESS other bugs that still havent been fixed are viewable on the fallout wiki

Yeah, so I'mma be smart and save HDD space, money, and stress and just buy the inevitable GOTY edition.

If it's anything like the GotY edition of FO3, you won't be saving much HDD space. A mandatory 7gig installation. What were they thinking?

Are you serious? GT5's already killing me. I most likely won't even pick it up…by then, FONV will be old news. FO3 is a classic though, but I never bought the GOTY edition, just downloaded the level cap DLC pack (? Steel) which was assume. Heard the rest were whatever so I passed on them and the GOTY edition.

If HDD space is an issue, upgrade to a 500 GB drive, it is awesome to not have to worry.

when i bought new vegas i was in the middle of playing it when my ps3 ylod on me. that was right before gt5 came out so instead of fixing it i bought a new one. in feb i sent in my first ps3 to be fixed and got new vegas back. i have not really played it since then but i want to.

as for getting the dlc i dont think i will spend another $30 on them. maybe if i have money to blow one day i will but i would rather get the goty disc instead.

Nope. Fallout 3 was plagued with all manner of glitches and bugs, and I'm not really interested in going through all that again with a version that, from what I gather, is even worse from a technical standpoint (not to mention that I haven't yet finished the campaign of FO3).

Sorry Bethesda (Obsidian?), but until you can prove to me that you can make a game on the engrossment calibre of FO that doesn't freeze hourly, or even more regularly, I'll think about buying again. But you would have to be insane to let FO3 out of your QA in the state it was. Sure it reviewed well, but NV proved that doing that again will not guarantee a repeat performance. I'll think about NV only if a Complete Edition comes out, and even then only on the cheap. As for Skyrim… same story. Make it work.
Peace.

I agree with u Lawless. I managed to complete the main plot in FO3, but the infinite screen freezing issues, which forced me to restart my PS3, were a major pain in the @$$! I couldn't believe that Bethesda chose to ignore fixing these issues and instead chose to produce more DLC, and then FO New Vegas (which some describe as Fallout3.1). Based on my negative experience I chose to give FO New Vegas a skip. I'm sure others did the same, esp on the PS3 platform. I thought of getting it in the bargain bin, but lost interest due to all the great titles out this year.

Well they definitely sound interesting, but if they freeze my PS3 every 10 minutes like the main game did for a while, then its gonna be very hard to convince me to buy Fallout 4 within the first 3 months of its release.

i loved fallout 3, but new vegas didn't grab me like fallout 3 did. i agree with a lot of what BEAMBOX said about new vegas. it just felt a little off, and the story wasn't nearly as compelling.

I have been waiting for this. Just because this means we're getting closer to the inevitable goty version. Once that goty version comes out and drops to $30 I'll buy it.

Bethesda games are too buggy to pay top dollar for, the worst part is they know they're buggy and they don't care. Especially when it comes to consoles.

pass.
3 things ive learned from bethesda over the years.
1 NEVER buy a game on release because A its buggy as fudge and they take months to fix anything!
B since there games are so buggy they drop in price very quickly!
2 NEVER buy DLC on release because of both reasons listed above.
3 NEVER buy either the game or DLC because a year after release they will release a GOTY version even though no one gave it GOTY it will have all DLC included and at a highly reduced price!
