Don your vault jumpsuit and come back to the wasteland in Fallout 4, the latest entry in the legendary postapocalyptic role playing games. As a survivor of Vault 111 who remembers the world as it was before the bombs fell, enter the Commonwealth established where Boston used to be.Fallout 4 greatly improves on the tried and tested Bethesda formula, with better crafting, combat, story, and more. It is the essential post-apocalyptic open-world role-playing game, now giving you more power over the world than ever.
One of the core features of Fallout 4 gameplay is the ability to found new villages from the ground up. Gather resources during your travels and use them to build houses, defenses, and gadgets to equip the settlers with. Create farms, supply routes and elaborate electric systems controlling automated turrets against bandit raids and wild animals. See how the inhabitants and traders grow in numbers as you improve the settlement.
Fallout 4 abandons the skillpoint-based progressions of previous Fallouts and introduces a Perk-based system. As you level up, you will gain a Perk point to spend in a convenient and graphic menu on traits that will provide immediate, measurable upgrades to your abilities. Your in-game avatar becomes powerful faster than ever. Without a maximum character level, eventually you will become the master of all disciplines if you wish.
Use scavenged materials to create modifications to your weapons and armor. Mods not only change, often drastically, how your equipment works, but also provide a significant change to how it looks. So change your laser rifle into a scattergun, add sawblades to your baseball bat, or line your armor with asbestos and see how it changes your experience. The number of possible upgrades and sidegrades is sufficient to keep everyone invested in tinkering.
The Boston area is ripe with interesting locations to visit. From developed settlements and urban areas to dying forests, and the famous Glowing Sea, the locales of Fallout 4 are a fascinating reward for daring explorers. The Commonwealth area has also the most color of all Fallout games so far. From rich interiors of wealthy wastelanders to casual outfits and evening gowns, Boston area is closer to civilization than any Fallout area before.
The companions joining you on your journey through Fallout 4 are as bizarre and one-of-a-kind as the irradiated lands themselves. From a pre-war robotic butler with a buzzsaw arm, to a ghoul in a pirate's clothing, and a synthetic hardboiled detective with all the trappings of the profession. Each of 13 characters has their own likes and dislikes influencing how you gain reputation with them, which unlocks perks unique to each companion.
