Fallout 4 Video Survival Guide Talks Strength, S.P.E.C.I.A.L. Skills


To better prepare us for the dangerous and post-apocalyptic world of Fallout 4, Bethesda has decided to take us back to school with a new video series detailing the game’s seven S.P.E.C.I.A.L. skills.

Taking the form of a cartoony, black and white guidance film from the 1950s era, the first of seven planned survival tutorials is something you won’t want to miss. Choosing to focus on Strength — the first part of the series’ unique attribute system — it presents useful information while staying tongue-in-cheek throughout.

Of course, Strength is an important skill to have in RPGs, especially if you’re someone who likes to go toe-to-toe with enemies while using melee weapons. It’s the same way in Fallout 4, which also uses the skill to determine how many items you can carry before becoming overburdened. And, as we all know, being able to carry lots of unique items is a helpful ability to have when you’re in a wasteland full of deformities.

Fallout 4 will be released on November 10th of this year, for Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and Windows PC. Check back for more coverage as we stroll towards that date.
