Dead Money, the first downloadable content for hit action RPG Fallout: New Vegas, will be released exclusively on Xbox LIVE on December 21, 2010.

"We're pleased to give fans a chance to expand their experience in Fallout: New Vegas this December with Dead Money," said Pete Hines, VP of PR and marketing for Bethesda Softworks. "The release of Dead Money illustrates our commitment to creating entertaining add-on content for players to enjoy in already massive games like Fallout: New Vegas."

As the victim of a raw deal you must work alongside three other captured wastelanders to recover the legendary treasure of the Sierra Madre Casino. In Dead Money, your life hangs in the balance as you face new terrain, foes, and choices.

Dead Money will be available for 800 MS Points.

December 21 means the content sneaks onto XBL just in time for Christmas. While the DLC won't be affected by traditional holiday shopping, it might be just want gamers want after the new releases dry up in December.

There's also no mention of the content ever appearing on PS3 and PC.
