Fallout 4’s Endurance Cartoon Is Full of Life
Bethesda released its third educational video starring Vault Boy teaching you how to survive in the wasteland. Be ready to bulk up for Endurance in Fallout 4.
The Vault-Tec corporation's mascot, Vault Boy, is back with yet another S.P.E.C.I.A.L. cartoon for Fallout 4. This is the third piece of a set of seven instructional cartoons explaining the Fallout series' S.P.E.C.I.A.L. attribute system. This acronym stands for Strength, Perception, Endurance, Charisma, Intelligence, Agility and Luck, and they're the seven primary statistics that define your character's effectiveness in surviving the nuclear wasteland. We've already learned about Strength and Perception. Strength is all about how hard you hit and how much weight you can carry. Perception has to do with enemy detection and how keen your senses are.
Endurance primarily affects your total number of hit points, as well as your healing rate and resistance to radiation. The more Endurance you have, the more damage you can take. Charisma has to do with how well versed you are in your conversations with people. Your learning skills and computer efficiency are based on your Intelligence. Agility has to do with your speed, dodging, stealing, lockpicking and melee weapon skills. Of course, Luck is the randomized attribute of fate that can be the difference between a critical hit or a miss.
Fallout 4 will launch on Nov. 10 for PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. Pre-ordering the Xbox One version of the game will unlock a free copy of Fallout 3 via backwards compatibility.
