If you’re wandering a post-apocalyptic wasteland, you’ll want to be smart about it. I mean, sure, being strong and durable and charismatic might be useful, but the message from this latest Fallout 4 video is that Intelligence is something a bit SPECIAL.
Intelligence, for instance, will let you hack your way through terminals, getting you access to otherwise restricted or sealed-off areas. Intelligence will let you upgrade your chemicals. Intelligence will help you staunch the flow of blood when you take a nasty wound. And – more to the point – Intelligence is also the primary stat used in the new weapon crafting system, so if you want to create some sort of six-barrelled nuclear warhead sniper shotgun, you’ll probably need to have some smarts to go about it. (I don’t actually know if you can create a six-barrelled nuclear warhead sniper shotgun in Fallout 4, but I’m hoping.)
You can see the latest in this surprisingly excellent series of Fallout 4 videos below, anyway. The game itself is due out on 10 November.Related to this article
Tim has been playing PC games for longer than he’s willing to admit. He’s written for a number of publications, but has been with PC Invasion – in all its various incarnations – for over a decade. When not writing about games, Tim can occasionally be found speedrunning terrible ones, making people angry in Dota 2, or playing something obscure and random. He’s also weirdly proud of his status as (probably) the Isle of Man’s only professional games journalist.
