Where do skull crushing hammers, mug-collecting robots and angry dudes with kick-ass machine guns fit in to the world of Fallout? Damned if we know; but according to these newly released screens, they're just some of weapons, allies and enemies you'll come across in Old World Blues, Bethesda's forthcoming expansion for Fallout: New Vegas.

Old World Blues moves the action into the Big Empty, where players will explore pre-War research centers for secrets to their past, and ancient technology which could either blow old enemies to smithereens, or be a vital tool in a much greater conflict. The expansion will raise the level cap by 5, add a new trait, allow players to keep their equipment, and at one point give them a chance to tinker with their appearance. Similar to previous add-ons, companions won't be invited to traverse the new locations. Too bad, really, but here's hoping Muggy is as good with a gun as he is at making coffee (or so we assume).
Old World Blues will be out for XBLA, PC and PSN on July 19th for 800 Microsoft Points and US$9.99, respectively.
