De Role Playing Game (RPG) Fallout: New Vegas doet het aardig op de gameconsole en dat is voldoende reden voor Bethesda Softworks om deze game te blijven steunen. De nieuwe DLC Honest Hearts staat gepland om 19 april aanstaande uit te komen en daarna nog meer nieuwe DLC.

Jason Bergman is de Senior Producer van de game en die laat weten via het officiële forum van Bethesda nieuwe DLC gepland staat, maar dat er eerst een nieuwe patch voor Fallout: New Vegas komt. De patch ligt nu bij de platformhouders en verwacht wordt dat deze binnen enkele weken online komt.

“Hi everyone,

On behalf of all of the hard-working teams at Bethesda and Obsidian, I’d like to give you an update what we’ve been working on these past few months.

Well, here’s what happened: our next DLC release (announcement coming very soon, we promise) has been complete while we worked on getting a patch ready for you all. We didn’t want to just release more DLC before we had a patch that would improve the overall New Vegas experience.

The good news is that we do have such a patch and it’s been handed off to the necessary platform owners. It should be released in the next couple of weeks on 360, PS3 and PC (can’t be more specific than that, I’m afraid, although PC will almost certainly get it first).

So what’s in that patch? First and foremost, optimizations and stability improvements. While there are bug fixes, our core focus was on improving stability and performance. We worked directly with first party platform owners to identify issues, and we have fixed a great deal of the crashes and lockups that people were experiencing. In addition, we scoured the forums and this patch includes weapon balance tweaks and other requested fixes.

We know we’re not done yet. There’s still more work to do, and we’ll be monitoring the forums very carefully following the release of this patch, looking for more issues. We do have another update planned further down the line.

So I’d like to apologize for the radio silence. Hopefully you’ll be pleased with the enormous amount of work we’ve put into this update over the last few months, and will enjoy the rest of our DLC releases. We have some pretty cool stuff coming soon. Stay tuned!
