2nd Round of Leaked Fallout 4 Gameplay Details - Perks, Weapons, Power Armor, Cover System, Stealth, Dialogue And More

One lucky user from the elotrolado forums has managed to get his hands on the game and share his amazing experience. The user revealed a huge number of details about various aspects of the game yesterday, which we covered in a previous article yesterday.
The user shared even more information today, which you'll find below. His comments are in Spanish so we've went ahead and organized the information in several points for your convenience in English.

- Weapons will never decay, and will never require any repair.

- Fusion cores are required to power the Power Armor. These fusion cores have a finite amount of energy and will run out. There's a perk that will extend the length of time that each given fusion core will last.

- While inside your power armor, you can carry significantly more weight and your damage resistance is also significantly higher, however you move considerably slower. You can also enter buildings with your power armor equipped.

- New Perk "Dumb Luck" , Luck Level 5 : Receive three times the experience points at random for any action, the lower your intelligence the greater the chance.

- New Perk "Ghoul", Endurance Level 9 : Of course you're still human, on the outside. Radiation will now regenerate your health.

- New Perk "Pain Train", Strength Level 10 : Choo choo! All aboard! If you have Power Armor equipped you can sprint and bash your enemies to deal damage. Robots and huge enemies can't be bashed.

- New Perk "Reflect", Perception Level 7 : You are like a mirror! Get +10 resistance to energy damage.

- New Perk "Nuclear Physicist", Intelligence Level 9 : You have learnt to split the atom...and master it! Radiation weapons do 50% more damage and fusion cores last 25% more.

- Dialogue : You will often be presented with two options in dialogue to deal with various situations. You can either choose to deal with the situation diplomatically or aggressively. Some dialogue options if chosen will prevent you from going back and choosing other options / dialogue themes.
Some dialogue options will be color coded - Green, Orange & Red - to indicate the chance of success depending your Charisma level.

- There are six difficulty Levels and now hardcore mode similar to what was present in Fallout New Vegas. These difficulty levels however not only affect your enemies' resistance to your damage, but also the chances of encountering legendary enemies which will be designated with a star in their avatar. These legendary enemies will drop unique loot.

- Stealth mode is quite similar to Skyrim's but is slightly improved. There are a lot of perks in the game related to stealth and theft.

- There's a new weapon type in the game aside from regular guns and elemental weapons that outputs "radiation" damage.

- In the character creation menu you will be allowed to customize your body type but not your height.

- The cover system in the game is contextual so you don't have to actually press any button to enter cover. By simply walking towards the object that you want to take cover behind you will automatically enter cover. You can engage in and out of cover by aiming your weapon. The system is quite similar to that of Metal gear.

1st Round Of Leaked Fallout 4 In-Game Screenshots - 40 Screenshots

View post on imgur.com

Gallery can be found here.

1st Round of Leaked Fallout 4 Gameplay Details - Combat, Settlements, Difficulty Levels, Weapons, Armor, Minigames, Dialogue, Animations and More.

- How the game looks and feels :

 The user described the game as not looking revolutionary but still looking better than what we've seen so far in E3 and via the official screenshots. The game as a whole looks much better than the sum of its parts and the lighting is one of the best he has ever seen. There have been a few framerate dips here and there, but there's also a lot more on the screen than compared to Fallout 3.

- Difficulty Levels :

There are six difficulty levels. Very Easy, Easy, Normal, Hard, Very Hard and Survival. With each difficulty levels the your character's damage, enemy resistance, the rate at which enemies spawn and the rate at which legendary enemies spawn are different. Legendary enemies will drop legendary loot for the player once defeated. So there's perhaps even more of an incentive to bump up the difficulty other than craving a challenge. These legendary items have unique characteristics. Examples of which are better critical hit chances or regeneration of Action Points upon landing a critical hit.

- The color of your heads up display - HUD - will be configurable via red, green and blue sliders.

- The lock-picking and hacking minigames are identical to those in Fallout 3.

- Map Size :

The player said that it was hard to tell as the map appeared to be quite small in size inside the pip-boy but was actually massive and much closer to the size for Skyrim.

- Combat And Enemy AI :

The player described the first person experience as being amazing, while Fallout 4 is definitely no Call of Duty the first person experience is fantastic and the immersion is incredible.  It feels visceral, you feel the impact and the recoil of the weapons, each of which feels completely unique. It's a huge jump from Fallout 3, which had somewhat of a clunky combat system. The enemy AI feels much more real. Your enemies will hide away from your sights, seek cover and opportunistically attack you when your health is low or when you're busy reloading. Worthy of note is that the player said he was playing in hard mode. Finally he also said that people can choose to play completely without VATS as it's not really essential in anyway.

- Animations And NPC Diversity:

The animations looked perfect. And there's great variety in how the people look. Even generic NPCs like raiders will look completely different from one another.

- Dialogue System, Diplomacy And Karma :

The player said that he did not really enjoy the dialogue system in the game. And that in 23 hours he faced very few missions in which he wasn't able to get out of a situation by through dialogue. There is a similar friendship system to that in Dragon Age and Mass Effect games. However there is no visible karma system. The in-game statistics also did not have any indicators for your reputation. So the reputation system will likely work in a similar way to Skyrim's the player speculated.

- Settlements :

One of the primary features in the game. A lot of people will love it, some will not care for it. The player described that he actually normally enjoys this sort of thing in role playing games but that in Fallout 4 he felt that it was harder and more in-depth than he would've liked.
There are almost endless options for it, many missions and objectives that can very easily distract you from the rest of the game.

How Settlements Work :

You will find red workshops tables spread out in settlements all over the world of Fallout 4. A few of those will be on empty settlements that you can build from scratch, while others will be occupied. If you encounter such an occupied settlement you have to first identify what type of people have settled in it. If they're friendly NPCs you can complete missions to help them and gain their trust. Everything that was showcased in the E3 gameplay showcase can be done by the player. You can destroy and rebuild everything you see in these settlements.

To sustain the population of a given settlement you have to provide them with food, water, energy and beds. Settlements become under attack, in which case you will receive a message notifying you of the situation with the option to go defend your settlement. You can invest countless hours building and sustaining your settlements. A home away from home, where the NPCs are "your people" and you can use these settlements as a base to rest, recoup and carry on with your adventures.

- Weapons :

The player claims to have seen 12-15 basic weapons which you can modify with mods, which he described as "crazy". Every one of those 12-15 basic weapons has 25-30 unique pieces that can be used to customize it and  change its stats.

- Power Armor :

The player described power armor as something that you'd treat almost like a vehicle. You wear the power armor by climbing inside it, if you climb out the power armor stays where you left it. It's heavy, bulky and slow but extremely powerful.

- Loading Screens:

The player said he had run into many small buildings that don't require any loading screens. However, bigger buildings still do. Although those loading screens are quite short. Shorter than loading screens encountered when fast traveling.

- Narrative :

Finally the narrative. The player said it starts off a bit slow but it picks up and gets quite pacey. He said that in a full day of playing Fallout 4 he only managed to complete 4 of the main quests. They're long, gruel and tough. But the story is developing into something quite interesting.
