Continuing after doing the main story quest?

#1G-Know-nitz_lowPosted 8/11/2011 8:05:27 PM
Can I still do the side-quests I still have when I finished the Main Quest? Or does it end with the credits and I have to start a new game again?

But I heard that Bethesda patched the game so players can continue the quests?

Bethesda patched the game so the game makes a SYS save prior to the fight at hoover dam.

after which the game loads the SYS file if you want to keep playing.

no, even the oncoming DLC Lonesome road doesn't extend the main story quest . .

I'M CONFUSED.

What I mean is when I complete the Main-main story(and get the game credits and anything.), can I still continue free-roaming in the game? Because I have the DLCs Honest Hearts, Dead Money, and OWB. I kind of wanted to finish the main storyline first before going to the side-quests and DLC(it's a personal liking don't ask why lol)

The above post answers your question.

To reiterate: The closest you can get to "playing after finishing the main quest" is to finish the main quest, then reload the save file mentioned above and go do the sidequests and DLC.
