Last week Scott told you some preliminary information about the previously announced Fallout: New Vegas DLC, Dead Money. Thanks to Bethesda’s newest newsletter, we can now expand on that information.
It seems that, up until now, the Sierra Madre Casino was in a state of lockdown. Once the bombs dropped, the casino’s state of the art security system locked down the building, trapping and eventually killing everyone inside. (Resident Evil, anyone?)
Well, not quite everyone. Senior Designer Chris Avellone elaborates:
Only a mysterious group called the Ghost People survived to call the city home, trapped inside what appeared to be hazmat suits and never speaking to their victims…only capturing them alive and dragging them away to the depths of the city deep within the Cloud.
This being an extension of Fallout: New Vegas, players will encounter several unique characters, each with their own motivations, all of whom will have to work together if any of them are going to survive. Aside from just struggling with their would-be companions, the courier will also have to deal with the mysterious Ghost People as well as the casino’s substantial defense systems.
Like Fallout 3‘s DLC, you will receive a mysterious radio transmission directing you to the start of your quest. Soon to be yours for only 800 Microsoft Point; Dead Money hits the Xbox LIVE Marketplace on December 21st.
