Fallout 4 Wants You to Know You’re S.P.E.C.I.A.L.
Prepare to get your post-nuclear apocalyptic swole on as Fallout 4 is running a new series about what it takes to be S.P.E.C.I.A.L.
Bethesda has released a new video featuring the Vault-Tec corporation's mascot character, Vault Boy. This character is used by the company that made the Vaults in order to help prepare survivors for the nuclear wasteland. Vault Boy is primarily used to visibly represent what every stat in Fallout represents, including perks, traits and skills. This new video series will breakdown the Fallout series' signature S.P.E.C.I.A.L. system, which consist of the primary statistics that'll affect your character directly. There's Strength, Perception, Endurance, Charisma, Intelligence, Agility and Luck, As you'd expect, Strength is all about how hard you hit and how much weight you can carry. The higher your strength is, the more weapons and items you can bring along with you, and this Vault Boy cartoon perfectly describes why the statistic is important.
Perception is all about your senses, so a higher number increases your awareness, empathy, night vision, rate of fire, lockpicking, ranged combat modifiers and more. Endurance is all about your total number of hit points, healing rate and resistances to the likes of poison and radiation. Smooth talkers are high in charisma, which will help you get what you want in conversations with other people. Intelligence increases your abilities to use medicine, repair machinery and use computers. Agility helps you with lockpicking, throwing weapons, melee weapons, pilfering, dodging, sniping and much more. Lastly, Luck is the almighty attribute of fate that can be the random difference in determining whether or not the bullet you're firing lands a critical hit.
