Fallout: New Vegas DLC “up to Bethesda,” says Obsidian
Fallout: New Vegas senior designer Chris Avellone has told Planet Fallout that Bethesda is in charge of DLC plans for the game, and hasn’t related any specific information to the developer on post-launch content as yet.
“No idea, up to Bethesda,” the Obsidian staffer told the site when asked about the game’s future.
“They are planning for DLC. I don’t know the specifics for that yet, though.”
Avellone first confirmed DLC plans for the game to VG247 at a European Bethesda pre-E3 event in France in April.
Avellone also detailed a little more on the game’s Hardcore Mode, which was first shown off back in Paris.
“If drinking out of toilets makes you a hero, Hardcore mode delivers,” says Avellone.
“I’ve never been so conscious of water sources in each environment until I played in Hardcore mode. And I eat until I’m stuffed and then some.
“The player has to worry about dehydration, ammo weight, resting, starvation, and healing items (Stimpaks) healing over time instead of instantly… all the things that make you more a virtual man than the next virtual man who’s playing on normal.”
Fallout: New Vegas launches on October 22 in the UK for PS3, 360 and PC.
