Get To Know Your S.P.E.C.I.A.L. Self For Fallout 4

Bethesda is preparing fans for the release of Fallout 4 with a series of videos that details the S.P.E.C.I.A.L. stats that’s prominent in the Fallout universe. The video is an animated look at the stat, Strength, which, veterans of the game will be familiar with.

The “educational video series” was created by the fictional Vault-Tec Industries to teach and inform vault dwellers about the seven defining traits that all dwellers should be familiar with. These stats are Strength, Perception, Endurance, Charisma, Intelligence, Agility, and Luck, which makes up the S.P.E.C.I.A.L. acronym.

Those that have played Fallout before knows how each stat contributes to the protagonist of the game, but for the initiated, each stats will affect certain skills and abilities that a player can perform within the game.

On this video, the guys at Vault-Tec explains how the strength stat affects the titular protagonist. For starters, increasing the strength will increase the carrying capacity of the protagonist. This means a bigger inventory to carry more items such as barbwire baseball bats, fusion rifles, raider armors, and Power Fist. Any veteran of Fallout will know that being over-encumbered is an occurrence that happens way too often, so investing a bit in strength might be a good idea.

The other obvious benefit from having high strength would be the ability to dish more damage with melee weapons. The aforementioned Power Fist, nail board, baseball bat, and even bare fists will be more effective with more strength.

While most gamers can just wait for the game to come out to learn all the details of game’s S.P.E.C.I.A.L. stats, Bethesda’s decision to hype up the release of Fallout 4 with these “educational video series” is definitely a more exciting approach. Plus, the awesome retro look of Fallout is perfect for these types of videos.

Fallout 4 is scheduled for release on November 10 on PC, Playstation 4, and Xbox One. With regular free updates, a modding tool, and paid DLC/season pass planned in the future, the game will definitely be one of the biggest releases that gamers are looking forward to.
