Watch the Lonesome Road trailer!

Watch the newly-released (and awesome) trailer for Lonesome Road — the fourth game add-on pack for Fallout: New Vegas, coming out on September 20th. Props to our very own Salinee Goldenberg for her great work on all the New Vegas DLC trailers!

In Lonesome Road you are contacted by the original Courier Six, a man by the name of Ulysses who refused to deliver the Platinum Chip at the start of Fallout: New Vegas. Ulysses promises the answer as to why he didn’t take the job, but only if you make one last journey into the hurricane-swept canyons of the Divide, a landscape torn apart by earthquakes and violent storms. It’s up to you whether you take the job or not.

Lonesome Road will be available next week for download on Xbox LIVE, PlayStation Network and Steam (Xbox LIVE for 800 Microsoft points, PlayStation Network and Steam for $9.99).
