The magazine cover is an in game screen shot. I'd like to see more as well, but we do have at least one screenshot.

Notice that the cover say's it's for Xbox 2, PC and Playstation 3. Look's like were in for a wait, and that the visuals will be killer.

We should start a massive forum search for people scanning the magazine or digging up leaked screen shots. I want info on this game soooo bad.

Worst marketing campaign ever.

They hype their loyal community with a countdown just to announce the obvious (TES IV is in development, it will be out somewhere in the future for PC and next gen consoles...) and NO screenshots, NO real info JUST a crap exclusive deal with a magazine (never heard of it btw) nobody will ever see outside US ?

Meh, and I thought Nvidia PR was teh_evil...

Yes, that would be Daedelus. Though yeah, a Deus Ex on the HL2 engine would be pretty cool, although it would be disapointing to take a step back from the lighting effects that were in the DX:IW. DX:IW had an OK engine, except it was crap at rendering large environments (like that big open area in the last level, ugh, so choppy), and the performance overall was a bit disapointing. Actually, I could almost see a Deus Ex game in the Doom 3 engine, since it seems to be good at rendering both indoor and outdoor environments. It's quite impressive how flexible ID's engines are, considering games like Heavy Metal:FAKK2 were on the Quake 3 engine, I could definatly see a Deus Ex game on the Doom 3 engine.

Actually speaking about engines, I wonder what the new Elder Scrolls engine supports. From the screenshot it looks like it uses a lot of bumpmapping and soft-shadows, hope it stays that pretty throughout the whole game. Wonder how far the draw distance is...just imagine Morrowind with a Farcry type view range . Actually now that I think about it...didn't Bethesda say that Fallout 3 would use the new ES4 engine? Can't wait to see how that looks!

I don't know if you have a Gamestop in italy, but that's where I find them.
Here's what bethesda claims:

"With a circulation of close to two million, it is far and away the most widely read gaming magazine in the world."

http://www.elderscrolls.com/forums/i...showtopic=3893

Any day now we'll see some scanned screens from subscribers, since game informer say's they shipped to them all ready.
I wonder if they are using shader 3.0, since they are making it for Xbox 2 and Xbox 2 (AFAIK) will be using the ATI r500 which will support it.
Yea, I'm irritated about it, but they did promise to game informer first, and I'm sure we'll see some sceens in a week. Once game informer (after the 20th) officially hit's the news stands, I'd suspect that we'll see even more from bethesda. This count down was probably just to promote game informer.
I just hope they don't screw this game up, by making it linear or something, and to listen to thier forum member's (they have about a quadgillion poll's going on over there, with suggestion's for the up-comming game). Untill the game comes out, I have a feeling that vampires will hold me over.

Many other european people have complained on the official forums. I can assure that Game Informer is totally unknown outside US, although it's probably available via import in the UK.

And yes, I've read that sentence "With a circulation of close to two million, it is far and away the most widely read gaming magazine in the world"... Maybe Bethesda thinks that world stops at the US border. If they wanted to sell the exclusive, yet to have true worldwide coverage, they should have chosen a magazine like PCGamer which is read and published in many countries. (and probaly has a circulation of more than 2 millions copies worldwide)

Everything else aside, the whole countdown just to announce another delay was a badly orchestrated PR-fiasco

Let's hope than the game is not a big letdown like this marketing campaign

Heh, I have a Gameinformer subscription. Crappy reviews and commentary, but I got a %10 off used game card with it and they're headquarters is like 80 miles away from me, so I put up with them

As far as marketing campaigns go it's not that bad, it certainly builded hype and now everyone knows about the game, seemed to work for me.
