Do you know what makes you S.P.E.C.I.A.L? This is the question that Bethesda has asked Fallout 4 fans over the last few weeks. Today we see what Charisma can do for you in the apocalyptic wastelands.
Previous videos have included:
This week the video looks at how we influence people that we meet, and gain an advantage. This not only helps us persuade people to see things our way, but also help us when it comes to bartering for object we may need to complete our quests. Full of warnings of the potential downfalls of becoming too confident, Charisma can only take you so far.
These new S.P.E.C.I.A.L. videos are quickly becoming popular, especially with the dark sense of humour that fills each scene. One thing that we can be sure of is the fact that Vault Boy always seems to come out the worst. Be it taking a fork to the eye, or drinking an eye cocktail, things can’t get much worse than at the end of the video.
While these videos are informative, they are also very good marketing tools. Introducing new users to the S.P.E.C.I.A.L attributes and pushing all the right buttons of the nostalgic fans of the previous games they are working to build up to the games release. As we move into October this means that it is just over a month away, so not long now.
Over the coming weeks we’ll be seeing more of these videos, and hopefully seeing more in game footage to build up more anticipation for Fallout 4. At this point though I’m not sure if anticipation can be built up anymore than it already is.
