Survival of the Smartest.
The fifth entry in the series of Vault-Tec educational videos, which explain the core attributes of the Fallout 4 S.P.E.C.I.A.L. system, has released. To date, we have learned about Strength, Perception, Endurance, and Charisma - but today, the focus is on Intelligence, aka "Survival of the Smartest."
Intelligence will enable you to "unlock new opportunities and adapt to your new world aboveground," the narrator teaches. "An empty mind is a vessel for knowledge, and intelligence is the key to unlocking opportunity and adapting to your new world above ground." The Intelligence trait impacts medicine, crafting, chemistry, and more.
Each attribute impacts how you survive when exiting the vault. Still to come in the video series are Agility and Luck.
Fallout 4 releases November 10 for PC, PS4 and Xbox One.
