The downloadable expansion to Bethesda’s Fallout: New Vegas was released today for Australians to download for PC and PS3 after a slight delay on the expected February 22 release.Gamers can download the downloadable content (DLC), ‘Dead Money’, for PS3 through the PlayStation Network for $15.95 or for PC through Steam for US$9.95. While Bethesda Softworks announced Direct 2 Drive availability, the digital store’s website is currently restricting Australian access to the download.
Gamers downloading from Steam will have to already have Fallout: New Vegas installed through Steam to play Dead Money, and other PC gamers will have to wait longer for Direct 2 Drive to remove the country-restriction before purchasing the game online.
Because of the international release, Australians originally had to wait for the 22nd based on London’s time zone.
Dead Money was originally given an Xbox-exclusive release last October before making its way to PS3 and PC. New additions that come with the DLC include new perks, achievements and a raised level cap to 35 alongside a new storyline.
A further three add-ons have been announced to be each released simultaneously across gaming platforms for New Vegas throughout the year.
