Fallout: New Vegas Lonesome Road DLC launches

The fourth add-on pack for Fallout: New Vegas is out today on Xbox Live, Steam, and the PlayStation Network. The Lonesome Road DLC will cost 800 MS points for Xbox 360 or $9.99 of real money for PC or PlayStation 3. If you download the new content, you'll be contacted by Ulysses, the original Courier Six who is also known as the man who refused to deliver the platinum chip at the start of game, getting you mixed up in a conspiracy to take over New Vegas. He'll offer to reveal why he didn't take the job if you're willing to take one last journey for him, a trip into the desolate canyons of the Divide. That's one of those “few have entered, none have returned” locations ravaged by storms, earthquakes, and who knows what else.

The objective is simple: travel from point A to point B. However, according to a post on Bethesda’s Fallout blog, getting there won’t be easy. “When setting out, the goal was to deliver a Zelazny-style Damnation Alley experience in the Fallout universe,” explained Obsidian Entertainment creative director Chris Avellone. If you haven't read the story, it's a 1960s sci-fi tale about a prisoner offered a full pardon if he can deliver a vaccine across a nuclear war–ravaged US, from Los Angeles (point A) to Boston (point B). Lonesome Road won't ask you to go quite so far, but knowing how treacherous the Fallout universe is, we don't think there will be any shortage of challenges along the way. Good luck on the road!

    Well, sounds simple enough... ... WHy does something tell me there's the deathclaw equivalent of a Brumak waiting somewhere down the road, though?

    Is it just me or does the PSN only update on a Thursday? (UK). I checked last night and I couldn't see sight nor sound of it.

    Guess this means I'd better finish off Old World Blues here in the near future.

    There are also two more dlcs out now or very soon. One has all the preorder bonuses while the other has a few dozen unique weapons.
