Fallout 4 Best Companion

Fallout 4 supports both the ego and the third person perspective. The game is located in a freely accessible world and contains many role-playing-typical features. The player gets experience points for various actions, such as discovering new areas or killing opponents, which are needed to step up. At each stage upgrade, the player gets the opportunity to either improve their S.P.E.C.I.A.L. attributes or, alternatively, to enable or improve a perk. This allows the player to design his / her character individually according to their own wishes. The player can find in the game world numerous items such as weapons, armor and tools, but also scrap, which serves as a source of raw materials such as wood, plastic etc., but bear only a certain weight. Using the so-called Pip-Boy 3000 (a mobile device / a kind of wearable computing), the player is able to re-visit already discovered places by means of a fast-travel function. The Pip Boy also serves as a quest log and source of information for various statistics, as well as the ability to select weapons and armor and manage associated items.

In addition to the typical characteristics of a role playing game, the character can also use drugs to improve some skills at short notice. However, a dependency can also be generated by too frequent intake. The withdrawal symptoms, in turn, degrade the character traits, which is why one must either take more of the drug or have to be healed by a doctor.

The game is set within an open world post-apocalyptic environment that encompasses the city of Boston and the surrounding Massachusetts region known as "The Commonwealth". The main story takes place in the year 2287, ten years after the events of Fallout 3 and 210 years after "The Great War", which caused catastrophic nuclear devastation across the United States.
