New Fallout 4 Video Details the Perception Attribute

The new video in the Fallout 4 S.P.E.C.I.A.L. video series has been released on Bethesda’s Youtube channel.

Following last week’s video detailing Strength, the new video explains how the Perception stat works in the upcoming title. Essentially, your Perception stat will determine your character’s accuracy using the Vault-Tec Assisted Targeting System, or V.A.T.S., while also determining the distance at which you can sense an enemy presence. It also seemingly manages to affect other skills, such as Lockpicking. This is not unlike how it worked in previous installments, but at least this time we’re given another lovely cartoon to go over it. You can view the video below.


Fallout 4 is set to leave the vault on November 10, 2015.
