Fallout 4 S.P.E.C.I.A.L. Video Series Explains “Endurance”

To prepare gamers for the release of Fallout 4 in November, Bethesda have been releasing S.P.E.C.I.A.L. video tutorials. This week’s video takes a look at the importance of Endurance.

When making your way through the Wastelands Endurance can be one of the most important attributes to your survival. You’ll not only have to deal with radiation poisoning, monster attacks, and food poisoning but also the ability to run for your life at times when you are outnumbered. Endurance is the key to many of these dangers.

With the comic style that the video takes, there is also a darker side to what you are shown. Hinting at the possibilities of cannibalism there are various moments when it is hinted that the eating of other humans can provide you with added strength. Going down this route though must take you down to the depths of the Ghouls, so I’m not sure how advisable a move that would be.

As with many other roleplaying games it goes without saying really that Endurance is going to be important to survival. Being able to survive attacks from enemies is going to be one of the most important abilities to have when building up your character, so be sure to take special notice of this video, you never know what clues are hidden.

With the release of Fallout 4 November 10, there isn’t much of a wait now, and Bethesda definitely appear to be building up their marketing campaign. Not only have we seen these S.P.E.C.I.A.L. videos, but we are learning more about the buddies in the game. It will be interesting to see just how they help at all, when we finally get to leave the Vault and make our way out into the apocalyptic wastes.
