Even after finishing the main game, you're going to be free to explore the Beantown Wasteland all you want and keep leveling up in Fallout 4.

Bethesda has confirmed that Fallout 4 isn't going to have any kind of max level and that its gameplay would continue after beating the game. One of the main criticisms of the near-flawless Fallout 3 was its abrupt ending, where you died while purifying the waters of the Capital Wasteland. The negative backlash fans had in response to this ending resulted in Bethesda having the Lone Wanderer surviving the events of Project Purity in Fallout 3's Broken Steel DLC, which dealt with the Brotherhood of Steel taking on the remnants of the Enclave in order to secure Washington, D.C.'s freedom.

Likewise, there's going to be no level cap in the game. I personally hate it when I'm playing an open world RPG and end up hitting the max level with tons of content left to clear. This means that you'll keep getting stronger and earn more perks as you continue to grow. It makes me wonder if enemy stats will scale according to your level or if some areas are simply going to be much more difficult than others in terms of level differences.


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.
