Fallout 4

Fallout 4 Survival Mode takes things a step further when it comes to the difficulty settings of the game. The difficulty comes in the form simulation and survival elements.

These elements include controlling hunger, staying hydrated, and dealing with a whole lot of status ailments. Since all these things can be a little overwhelming at first, we have compiled a detailed guide on Ailment, Status, Cures, and other things.
