The victim of a raw deal turned sour, Dead Money casts the player into a wicked game as a pawn in chess along with other betrayed wastelanders.  The player must work with the AI wastelanders to gain access to the fabled Sierra Madra Casino in hopes of obtaining the treasures hidden within the casino.

Facing ghastly new enemies with a few new weapons, the DLC will bring more additions to Fallout®: New Vegas™ than just more plot and storyline.

Yes it’s true, two months after the release of the first downloadable content for Fallout®: New Vegas™ on Xbox 360®, PC and PS3™ players will be vindicated with Dead Money.  Set to release on February 22, the DLC will be available over the Playstation®Network, Steam®, and Direct2Drive®.

Initially released exclusively for the Xbox 360® on Dec. 21, 2010; Dead Money will pit the player as a pawn in a vicious game to retrieve the fabled treasures hidden inside the Sierra Madra Casino.  However, the DLC will also require the player to work in tandem with three other wastelanders if they intend discover what awaits them in the casino, or to simply survive the live-action chess game they have been unwillingly thrown into.

Bethesda also stated with this announcement that three more add-ons to last year’s hit Fallout®: New Vegas™ will be releasing in the coming months.  As a relief to PC and PS3™ owners, these additional DLCs will release for all three platforms simultaneously.
