Ultimate Edition as the name suggest, contains all DLC’s which were created for the New Vegas.
These DLC’s are:

Each pack contains really interesting items with the most valuable being Armored Vault 13 Jumpsuit.
- Dead Money DLC provides you with a huge, new location known as Sierra Madre Casino. A few days before the opening, bombs fell and the casino was forgotten by everyone.

Besides the new location, you are going to find dozens of new items, new creatures, characters etc.
- Honest Hearts is another DLC which focus on the plot of the game. You are sent on the expedition to unexplored areas of Utah’s Zion National Park. Soon your caravan is ambushed by White Legs raiders. Now you have to do everything to survive. Since the game main focus is survival, your character now can build and craft many new items.

- Lonesome Road – This time your story takes a full circle when you are contacted by Ulysses. He was an original courier, supposed to deliver the platinum chip but he refused to do so. He promised to give you an answer why. However, he has one last task for you to do.
