More magazines preview New Vegas

Duck and Cover has a summary of the UK XBox 360 World magazine's preview of Fallout: New Vegas. Here's some new or partially new info:

  • Hardcore mode: Stimpaks take a long time to heal, you need a Doctor's bag to heal broken limbs, and you suffer from dehydration so you need to carry water.
  • Obsidian have focused much more on the story than Bethesda did with Fallout 3
  • VATS now includes a special attack for every weapon
  • Weapons can be modded - one of the mods involves reducing the spooling time for miniguns.
  • The Hoover Dam is intact and produces electricity
  • Electricity seems to be one of the main themes in the game
  • The HELIOS One solar tower controls an orbital laser platform
  • You can get a portable controller for the laser platform and use it throughout the game
  • Lots of "grey areas" in terms of actions and dialogue - a combined reputation and morality system means everything you do has an effect on something in one way or another.
  • New Vegas will have different endings, "instead of the single, potentially anachronistic 'man/woman saves the Wasteland' finale."
  • New weapon - The "All-American" - a rapid fire Sniper rifle

Other magazines that have recently previewed the game are Japanese Famitsu (with 2 new screenshots) and GameInformer, which also mentions Doctor's Bags, but doesn't have any other relevant information.
