Breaking Down the ‘Fallout 4’ Character System Trailer

Following Fallout 4’s Perception trailer yesterday, Bethesda has released a new video with Director Todd Howard going over details on how the perk system works alongside the first look at it.

Using the S.P.E.C.I.A.L. system, each attribute comes with 10 perks each, giving the player 70 to choose from. From there, perks can be ranked up to become more powerful and effective, which technically makes the total number of perks 275. According to Kotaku, players will be given 28 points to start out with.

The trailer showcases how the rankings work and what the perk menu looks like. Hovering over a perk also provides a little animation with Vault Boy and sound effects to boast.

Check out our screenshots that break down the information the trailer reveals.
