Bethesda Softworks® announced today that the first addition of downloadable content for Fallout®: New Vegas™ will release exclusively on Xbox LIVE® for the Xbox 360®.  To Microsoft console gamers the world over, enjoy the content before the rest of the gaming world; you’ll be able to get it Dec. 21…merry Christmas.

Titled, Dead Money, this addition of content will pit Fallout’s latest hero against new terrain, villains, and choices.  As with the beginning of New Vegas™, Dead Money casts the player as the victim of a raw deal gone sour; however the hero is not alone this time around.  Instead you will need to work hand-in-glove with three other betrayed wastelanders to recover the fabled treasure of Sierra Madra Casino.

“We’re pleased to give fans a chance to expand their experience in Fallout: New Vegas this December with Dead Money,” said Pete Hines, VP of PR and Marketing for Bethesda Softworks®. “The release of Dead Money illustrates our commitment to creating entertaining add-on content for players to enjoy in already massive games like Fallout: New Vegas.”

Fallout®: New Vegas™ Dead Money has yet to be rated the ESRB.

Dead Money will costs 800 Microsoft points.

As for Playstation®3 gamers and PC players, Bethesda has given no indication as to when or if, this content will reach your system.
