Of all the games we hoped to see in 2015, Fallout 4 is the only one that’s going to be a reality — and it’s only a month away! Bethesda has thankfully kept most details under wraps since Fallout is a series best played blind.
Still, if you want to start planning out your character ahead of launch day, there’s an easy yet unofficial way to do it.
I hope to be able to make the biggest nerd in Fallout 4 and have the character actually reflect that idea.

Vault 111, a fan site for the series, has released a character creator that lets you distribute points according to the upcoming game’s S.P.E.C.I.A.L tree. Afterwards, you can view a live chart of the perks that will be available to you based on how you distributed your points.
For example, if you want extra resistance to radiation, then you’ll need a high Endurance. If you want to befriend animals of the Wasteland, then you’ll need a high Charisma. And so forth.
Players who don’t want any details about Fallout 4 spoiled should steer clear of this website before the game launches, but for everyone else, feel free to play around with your stats ahead of time. If you like, you can even export your character and send it to others.
Check out mine for inspiration!
Anyone else already planning out their initial character stats for Fallout 4?
I usually roleplay as a sneaky high intelligence type, but eh
