PC Format did indeed have the EXCLUSIVE on The Sims: Medieval, as seen here:
I have not had the fortune to see the magazine myself, but I have heard they have an interesting 6 page spread with 8 images.
A huge thankyou to uknortherner for the cover image above.
All images as seen above remain the property of PC Format magazine.
I would urge any website still publishing the images stolen from them to remove the TSR logo and credits and instead credit the rightful owners.
