Courier Six's secrets at the end of the Lonesome Road will remain unknown for a while longer, as Bethesda confirmed today that the final announced Fallout: New Vegas downloadable content release has been delayed. Lonesome Road now won't launch this month, as was planned, and has no firm release date.
"This isn't due to any major issue with the code or content, but there are lots of factors involved in releasing these things, and one of those is causing us to slip past our intended release date," senior producer Jason Bergman explained.
"We don't have an exact date yet, but we're working to get it out as quickly as possible. We'll be announcing the final date, along with a couple of other interesting FNV-related items in the near future," the Shacknews alumnus said.
Sounds like Lonesome Road has a flange overflow blockage in the bit-pipe widget, if you ask me. Lonesome Road was slated for a July release when first announced, but the New Vegas DLC schedule has been shaken up since then.
Players will walk the Lonesome Road to the Divide, a new, desolate area wrecked by earthquakes and hurricanes. You see, the original Courier Six has got in touch and promises to explain why he refused to deliver the Platinum Chip--which lead to the sucker player character taking the job and getting capped.
Still, Bethesda also released the first Lonesome Road screenshot today, so you can at least see the road now, if you can't yet walk it.
