F: NV DLC Old World Blues release date

New title update to improve stability.

The third downloadable add-on for open world role-playing game Fallout: New Vegas launches on Tuesday 19th July, Bethesda has announced.

Old World Blues releases on PC, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 on that day. Presumably on PS3 in Europe it launches on Wednesday 20th July alongside the regular EU PS Store update.

Before launch a new title update for New Vegas will add support for the DLC as well as improve performance and stability in "major areas".

Old World Blues follows previous DLC Dead Money and Honest Hearts. In it the Courier becomes a lab rat in a science experiment and discovers how some of the Mojave's mutated creatures came to exist.

A fourth add-on, called Lonesome Road, is also in the works.

Each New Vegas add-on costs 800 Microsoft Points or £7.49/€9.99.
