On this submitted post, BETHESDA SOFTWORKS describes all three dlcs, what they are about, what we are expecting and when are their release dates, yes, you heard me right, RELEASE DATES!!!

Full detailed report from Bethesda (Thanks to Fallout Wikia for this)

“Three Additional Add-on Packs Releasing in Coming Months
for Xbox 360, PlayStation®3 system and Windows PCs

May 3, 2011 (Rockville, MD) – Bethesda Softworks®, a ZeniMax® Media company, today announced three downloadable content packs will be released in the coming months for Fallout®: New Vegas™. The three packs will be released simultaneously for the Xbox 360® video game and entertainment system from Microsoft, PlayStation®3 computer entertainment system, and Windows-based PCs.

Honest Hearts™, Old World Blues™ and Lonesome Road™ will further expand upon Fallout: New Vegas. Fallout: New Vegas takes all the action, humor and post-apocalyptic grime and grit of this legendary series, and raises the stakes.

Available on May 17, Honest Hearts takes you on an expedition to the unspoiled wilderness of Utah’s Zion National Park. Things go horribly wrong when your caravan is ambushed by a tribal raiding band. As you try to find a way back to the Mojave, you become embroiled in a war between tribes and a conflict between a New Canaanite missionary and the mysterious Burned Man. The decisions you make will determine the fate of Zion.

In Old World Blues, releasing in June, you will discover how some of the Mojave’s mutated monsters came to be when you unwittingly become a lab rat in a science experiment gone awry. You’ll need to scour the Pre-War research centers of the Big Empty in search of technology to turn the tables on your kidnappers or join forces with them against an even greater threat.

Lonesome Road, available in July, brings the courier’s story full circle when 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 New Vegas. In his transmission, Ulysses promises the answer as to why, but only if you take one last job –a job that leads you into the depths of the hurricane-swept canyons of the Divide, a landscape torn apart by earthquakes and violent storms. The road to the Divide is a long and treacherous one, and of the few to ever walk the road, none have ever returned.Reviews of Fallout: New Vegas have called the game as “an utterly essential purchase” (MSN UK) and as “addictively, rambunctiously fun” (Entertainment Weekly). The Associated Press awarded it a 4 out of 4 stars and said “Bottom Line: It’s a Blast”, while GameSpy gave it 4.5 out of 5 stars and called Fallout: New Vegas “one of the best games of the year.”

All downloadable content for Fallout: New Vegas will be available for download on Xbox LIVE® for 800 Microsoft Points, the PlayStation®Network for $9.99, and both Steam and Direct2Drive for $9.99.”

As a big Fallout fan, I’m so looking forward to these DLCs aswell as any minor ones they may be releasing for New Vegas, unlike Dead Money, all of these DLCs will be released on Xbox 360, PC and PS3 simultaneously so no Xbox 360 exclusive “Before anyone else” thing, all Fallout players will get a fair share of the release date.

Additional information that Bethesda on what the DLCs also bring to the player (Again, thanks to Fallout Wikia for this)

Bethesda’s Matt Grandstaff has posted info on level cap in the upcoming Fallout: New Vegas add-ons in the Bethesda Forum.

“Each DLC will raise the level cap by 5. So including Dead Money, if you’ve got them all, you’ll have a cap of 50”

He also addressed concerns that the level cap increase might make the game too easy:

“And for you, I have good news. If you’re concerned that the new level cap increases will make the game too easy for you, I’ve got a couple things to note:

1) Congratulations on being hardcore

2) Old World Blues will offer a new trait (and respec your traits if you’ve already chosen them) that will allow you to cap your level at 30 (or current level if you’re already over 30).”

Asked whether players will be able to continue playing after the main quest is finished, he again confirmed that the game will still end with the Second Battle of Hoover Dam:

“Unrelated, wanted to note that none of the upcoming DLCs will allow you to play beyond the main quest (for the same reasons noted by the developers prior to the game’s release).”
