Bethesda Softworks has announced the third downloadable add-on for its postnuclear role-playing game Fallout: New Vegas. Called Old World Blues, the new expansion will be available on July 19 in North America for the PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and Microsoft Windows Platform.
In Old World Blues, the Courier unwittingly becomes a lab rat in a science experiment gone awry and discovers how some of the Mojave’s mutated creatures came to exist. Old World Blues takes place in the Pre-War research centers of "the Big Empty" (where Father Elijah had found most of his equipment prior to Dead Money, such as the bomb collars and the Ghosts’ armor). The player can also choose to either turn on their kidnappers or join with them to fight an even greater threat.
