Over the course of 2010 and 2011 there were six add-ons for Fallout: New Vegas released as downloadable content. The first four - Dead Money, Honest Hearts, Old World Blues and Lonesome Road - are full story add-ons, while the last two - Courier's Stash and Gun Runner's Arsenal - only add new weapons and items for the player to use.
The story add-on DLCs each offer a new stand-alone adventure that collectively tie together to form a greater story. Central to this story is the character Ulysses: a Legion spy and courier who turned down delivery of the Platinum Chip to give the Courier (the player character) the doomed job. Originally conceived as a pro-Legion companion for the main game, Ulysses is referenced several times in New Vegas and the first three DLCs before he finally appears in Lonesome Road. The story add-ons each take place in a new game world, add new weapons and items, new perks, new achievements, and raise the level cap by five.
The first Fallout: New Vegas DLC, Dead Money, was initially released as an Xbox 360 exclusive on December 21, 2010, then for the PS3 and PC on February 22, 2011. Dead Money takes place in the fictional Sierra Madre casino resort, a legendary high-class pre-war resort that was lost after the nuclear apocalypse to a toxic cloud. The Courier is kidnapped by Father Elijah, a former Brotherhood of Steel leader seeking weapons to destroy the NCR, and forced to work with three other captives in breaking into the casino to rob whatever treasure is inside.
