Fallout New Vegasdlchonest Heartstrailer Shows Burned Man Action
It's been a week since Bethesda revealed their plans to support 'Fallout: New Vegas' with three DLC packs , and today we're getting our first moving glimpse at the next pack. 'Honest Hearts' is set in Utah's Zion National Park and features The Burned Man, a mysterious character whose dealings with Caesar's Legion left him set on fire and thrown into the Grand Canyon. Now he's back, looking a lot like Darkman.
The trailer seems to focus on the war between The Burned Man and the New Canaanites. According to the history of Fallout, The Burned Man (aka Joshua Graham) was a Mormon missionary from New Canaan who was originally teamed up with Caesar and used his knowledge of language and culture to ensnare local tribes and bring them into The Legion. Unfortunately, after The Legion's defeat at the hands of the NCR at the First Battle of the Hoover Dam, Graham took the brunt of the blame and was punished with the aforementioned fire and Grand Canyon toss.
Since then he's been The Burned Man, a mysterious force discussed only in hushed tones. A potentially living myth who is biding his time, waiting for his chance to even the score.
That score can't really be settled with Caesar, though, as the DLC would likely take place before the end-game events of 'Fallout: New Vegas.' Instead he's duking it out with New Canaanites over territory in Zion National Park.
The trailer shows some of the new weapons, though it doesn't quite show off the scale of the DLC and whether it'll be a wide open map like Point Lookout in 'Fallout 3' or something more linear. You can bet, though, that there will be options for the player to side with The Burned Man or with his New Canaanite adversaries, in typical 'Fallout' fashion.
'Fallout: New Vegas - Honest Hearts' is scheduled for release on May 17 for Xbox 360, PC and PS3.
