We reported earlier about a rumor that Fallout: New Vegas would be the cover of next month's Game Informer. Those rumors were debunked. Hot on its heels, however, The Official XBox Magazine has announced that Fallout: New Vegas will have its world premier in their magazine next month.
The new issue of OXM goes on sale tomorrow, and you probably already know it's got a world exclusive Medal of Honor preview in it. But inside you'll see that the Next Month page reveals the following issue, which goes on sale 11th February, should have the world exclusive details on Fallout: New Vegas.
So while we might be having a joke about Vault Boy's New Careers, we're expecting to have the first solid information on the next Fallout adventure in just over a month.
We don't normally plug this sort of thing, because we're still working on the issue and the content is subject to change - sharp-eyed viewers will note the small print stating that at the bottom. But as some other sites have noticed we thought we'd put a proper image up and save them the trouble of scanning it.
So remember, February 11th, issue 56. Subscribe now to make sure you don't miss out.
What's REALLY STUPID is the fact that the cover says it is "Bethesda's new post apocalyptic RPG." Get your facts straight console guys. It's Obsidian Entertainment.
Update: I pointed out to the guys at OXM about the Obsidian/Bethesda gaffe on the image. Jon Hicks, editor of the magazine, was nice enough to respond. He acknowledged the fact that it's not Bethesda who is making the game, but:
Thanks for writing, but that’s intentional. The feature itself is of course based around Obsidian but Bethesda is cited because it’s the publisher, and because it’s the better known of the two companies. The image is an internally created ad for a forthcoming issue rather than the cover itself, so it’s been created to spark interest rather than go into precise detail. Seems to have succeeded in that respect, at least.
Why not just give Obsidian the credit they deserve?
Email OXM and tell them you want Obsidian's name on the front cover!
