Trademark Filings Tip Hand For New Vegas DLC?

Illustration for article titled Trademark Filings Tip Hand For New Vegas DLC?

Rooting through paperwork, a NeoGAF poster found three trademark filings by ZeniMax Media, parent of Bethesda Softworks, maker of Fallout: New Vegas. One corresponds to a name from a graffiti file (pictured) like one that tipped off December's "Dead Money" DLC.

"Honest Hearts" is one of the trademark applications, and the one that is matched by the graffiti file, according to The Vault, (the game's wiki volume). The other two names that were filed, "Lonesome Road" and "Old World Blues" could either be future projects or red herrings.

The Vault notes that the Honest Hearts graffiti refers to Joshua Graham - "The Burned Man" - and New Canaan. Graham was originally created as "The Hanged Man" and he and New Canaan were to appear in the version of Fallout 3 that Black Isle had been developing, canceled in 2003.

DISCUSSION

The way Obsidian seems to be handling this DLC is so much better than the way DLC in F3 was done. Dead Money dropped hints left and right about the next DLC (I won't go into spoilers) and it really seems like all the DLC will be serially linked to each other to form one engaging, overarching story. Expanding on the narrative in an important and meaningful way is so much better to me than getting some ultra weapon and a two hour diversion that doesn't do much for the overall plot (though, I'll admit Point Lookout and Broken Steel were some fine pieces of DLC).
