Bethesda today announced plans to develop add-on content for Fallout: New Vegas, the follow-up to the 2008 Game of the Year, Fallout 3. The first downloadable content for Fallout: New Vegas will be available this holiday season through Xbox LIVE. Bethesda takes this beloved franchise to a location only Fallout could do justice: Vegas. The new game takes all the action, humour and post-apocalyptic grime and grit of this legendary series, and raises the stakes.
“Bethesda set a high bar with the quality of the Fallout game add-ons,” said Matt Barlow, General Manager, IEB Product Marketing for Microsoft. “We have no doubt that gamers will be thrilled with seeing a new add-on pack extend their adventures with Fallout: New Vegas on Xbox 360 and Xbox LIVE.”
“We’re excited to continue the partnership between Bethesda and Microsoft, and build on the success of the game add-ons released for Fallout 3 on Xbox LIVE,” said Pete Hines, VP of Marketing and PR of Bethesda Softworks. “Fans will once again be able to continue their experience in the Fallout universe with the add-on packs planned for after the launch of the game.”
Fallout: New Vegas is set for release on Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 on October 19th in North America, October 21st in Australia and on October 22nd in Europe.
