Bethesda has released a new video which provides an in-depth look at Fallout 4’s character development system.
The video, narrated by executive producer Todd Howard, looks through the various S.P.E.C.I.A.L attributes along with their related perks. The system is beautifully brought to life in the form of a charming, animated poster which displays the seven main attributes, each with ten levels of multi-ranked perks below.
This results in 70 base perks, which, with multiple ranks, yields a total of 275 perks to mix and match and build your own ideal character with over the course of the game.
“If you have the value, you can choose it. So if you come out of the Vault with ten charisma, you can pick the intimidation perk that let’s you manipulate and control other people,” explains Howard in the video. A more detailed look at Fallout 4’s character system can be found on Bethesda’s website.
