Bethesda explains ‘S’ in Fallout 4’s S.P.E.C.I.A.L through new video


In what seems to be the first in a series of new videos, game maker Bethesda has explained the ‘S’ of Fallout 4’s S.P.E.C.I.A.L – the game’s primary statistics.

‘S’ in S.P.E.C.I.A.L stands for Strength and as the Fallout 4 maker explains, it is used for things like your character’s inventory weight limit and melee damage. The video explains that the more stronger you are the more you can carry in your inventory urging users to keep an eye on the limit as if the inventory is filled up with more than what you can carry, it would be difficult for you to escape hazardous scenarios.

The video goes on to state: “The greater your strength, the greater the impact”.

The remaining of the acronym for the game’s primary statistics, S.P.E.C.I.A.L. stands for Perception, Endurance, Charisma, Intelligence, Agility, and Luck.

The game maker explains that all these attributes will play their roles in how you survive in the wasteland post the total atomic annihilation. As you advance in the game, you will be able to use the skill points you earn to boost your character’s abilities across each of the attributes and these will govern your overall behaviour and experience during the game.

The video [embedded above] is the first in the series of 7 and as the launch date approaches, more videos will be released to show us the way. Fallout 4 is releasing on Xbox One, PS4 and PC on November 10.
