Bethesda’s just announced details on 360-exclusive DLC for Fallout: New Vegas.

No details on the DLC itself were given, but the press release said the “first downloadable content” would be exclusive to Xbox Live this holiday season, which seems to imply more would be coming to other consoles as well.

Info on the content will be “released in the coming weeks.”

“We’re excited to continue the partnership between Bethesda and Microsoft, and build on the success of the game add-ons released for Fallout 3 on Xbox LIVE,” said Bethesda’s US PR boss Pete Hines.

“We have no doubt that gamers will be thrilled with seeing a new add-on pack extend their adventures with Fallout: New Vegas on Xbox 360 and Xbox LIVE,” added Microsoft GM product manager for IEB, Matt Barlow.

The rage

Today’s news brings up memories of Bethesda announcing at Microsoft’s E3 press conference exclusive DLC for Xbox 360 and Games for Windows for Fallout 3 in 2008, with PS3 not getting a look-in.

It was announced then last May that the three previously-released packs of DLC – Operation Anchorage, The Pitt and Broken Steel – would finally come to PS3, as would two new DLC episodes: Point Lookout and Mothership Zeta.

Fallout: New Vegas producer Chris Avellone first confirmed DLC plans for the Obsidian RPG back in April.

“Bethesda has plans, but we don’t know the actual facts of them yet, so it’s pretty much premature to say anything,” he told VG247 back at a European pre-E3 Bethesda event in France back in April.

Fallout: New Vegas releases tomorrow in the US and on Friday in the UK for PS3, 360 and PC.

Bethesda couldn’t confirm to VG247 more details about the DLC other then what was on the press release.
