If you are one of the many gamers out there who are suffering from Fallout withdrawal you might want to pick up this months Official Xbox Magazine. There you will find amazing screen shots and a preview of some of the new things coming to the Vegas wasteland.
First off If you haven’t seen the teaser trailer yet, get out from under your rock and check it out…
Anyway let me highlight some of the insane awesomeness. Hardcore mode. If you really want to test yourself in the wasteland feel free to toggle the hardcore mode on and off. Stimpacks and other meds will not work right away in this mode. It will take time for you to get their full effects. Not only that but if you go too long without fresh water, you’ll find yourself in an early grave. They do not use the term hardcore lightly here.
Another fun addition is weapon mods. Uniquely modify your gun to your own killing needs. The example shown in OXM is a hunting rifle modified with the three mod limit. Adding a scope, custom action, and an extended clip. This gives the same old weapon a new look and will defiantly help taking out those mutants from afar.
I recommend all you Fallout fans go check out the magazine. I think you will find yourself drooling and itching to get your hands on the next Fallout installment.
