The next DLC release of Fallout: New Vegas is already complete, but fans will need to wait for the new content while Bethesda and Obsidian work on a pre-DLC patch.

"Our next DLC release (announcement coming very soon, we promise) has been complete while we worked on getting a patch ready for you all," explained senior producer Jason Bergman on the Fallout forums. "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 does the patch offer? Bergman explained:

"First and foremost, optimisations 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 lock-ups that people were experiencing. In addition, we scoured the forums and this patch includes weapon balance tweaks and other requested fixes."

There'll be more fixes coming at a later date too, with plans for another update "further down the line".

Regarding the DLC, Bergman concluded: "We have some pretty cool stuff coming soon. Stay tuned!"

Better than not patching at all.

I'm happy as I haven't got around to the game yet. When I do I'll hopefully have a better game in return for waiting.

Gave up with this game.
Maybe if they would of concentrated on fixing it sooner, instead of trying to get more money out of us with 'Dead Money' i might actually be interested.
