FNV dlc

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.[1][2] 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.[3][4][5]

Dead Money

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.[6][7] 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.[8][9]
