The fourth Fallout: New Vegas downloadable content pack 'Lonesome Road' is now slated to arrive on September 20, following its delay. On top of that, publisher Bethesda has announced two new DLC packs. One contains all the retailer-exclusive pre-order bonuses, and t'other packs stacks of new guns and ammo.
Lonesome Road adds another new area, natural disaster magnet the Divide, where the Courier will meet the original Courier Six. Bethesda hasn't announced the price yet, but it'll most likely cost the same as previous New Vegas add-ons, $9.99 (800 Microsoft Points).
Then, come September 27, the freshly-announced Gun Runners' Arsenal pack will be released for $3.99 (320 MS Points). Bethesda says that it "increases the range of unique weapons, weapon mods, ammo types and recipes" in New Vegas, so look forward to new and exciting ways to kill things. You can get a peek at some of these below.
September 27 will also see a bundle of New Vegas' four pre-order bonus packs released, priced at $1.99 (160 MS Points). This'll net you four low-level unique weapons and armor sets, along with basic supplies. There's nothing hugely exciting, except perhaps a water flask handy for Hardcore mode, but they'll give a good leg-up if you need one.
Hopefully that'll all be enough to satisfy your open-world RPG cravings until The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim launches on November 11.
