Bethesda confirms not one, not two but three brand spanking new Fallout: New Vegas DLC packs set to be released in May.

The three packs will be released simultaneously on the Playstation 3, Xbox 360 and PC.

"Honest Hearts, Old World Blues and Lonesome Road will further expand upon Fallout: New Vegas. Fallout: New Vegas takes all the action, humour and post-apocalyptic grime and grit of this legendary series and raises the stakes," explains the press release.

Here's what Bethesda had to say about the three add-ons:

"Honest Hearts takes you on an expedition to the unspoiled wilderness of Utah's Zion National Park. Things go horribly wrong when your caravan is ambushed by a tribal raiding band. As you try to find a way back to the Mojave you become embroiled in a war between tribes and a conflict between a New Canaanite missionary and the mysterious Burned Man. The decisions you make will determine the fate of Zion.

In Old World Blues, releasing in June, you will discover how some of the Mojave's mutated monsters came to be when you unwittingly become a lab rat in a science experiment gone awry. You'll need to scour the Pre-War research centres of the Big Empty in search of technology to turn the tables on your kidnappers or join forces with them against an even greater threat.

Lonesome Road, available in July, brings the courier's story full circle when you are contacted by the original Courier Six, a man by the name of Ulysses who refused to deliver the Platinum Chip at the start of New Vegas. In his transmission, Ulysses promises the answer as to why, but only if you take one last job -a job that leads you into the depths of the hurricane-swept canyons of the Divide, a landscape torn apart by earthquakes and violent storms. The road to the Divide is a long and treacherous one, and of the few to ever walk the road, none have ever returned."

Looks awesome, I haven't got far in New Vegas yet but once I've finished of Mass Effect 2 and Dragon Age I'll devote more time to it.
I have enough games to keep me going so I guess I will wait for the goty edition.

Still Bethesda's fallout series imho are one of the few companies that actually does DLC right.
I'm really looking forward to these. Love the fallout series, just on my second play through of fallout 3 and still really enjoying it. Why can't games companies make more games that will give me 70+ hours of game play before replaying.
I'm not sure why, but I couldn't get into New Vegas like I did with Fallout 3.

Hopefully the new content will tempt me back to the game. They certainly sound promising from that news article.
I had to play New Vegas for the third time I think before I really got into it, just wandering around exploring at the moment, not so worried about 100%ing things or completing every mission “perfectly”.
