Character Creation in Fallout 4 is rather interesting. The interface is easy to use and navigate but it allows to change a lot of different parameters of your hero’s face and body.
When you start the game you will be asked to create a new hero. You willbegin with customizing face.
First of all you need to select a part you wish to modify with your controller. Hover the part of a face and you will see pop-up menu in the bottom part of the screen with available changing options. For example if you hover the nose you can see that you can scale its size, change length, make it wider and so on.
If you hover character’s jaw you will be able to add facial hair. There are different types of facial hair available.
Of course you can select a female character if you wish. This can be done by pressing “Y” button. The female’s customization is as simple as male’s.
The interface is rather powerful and allows to create great appearance. Developers said that they used this system for customizing in game NPCs.
After you finish with the appearance you will start playing the game. But it’s not the end of creation process…You will appear in your house. There are several rooms there and a flying robot Codsworth in the kitchen. You can move and explore but soon you will hear that someone knocks the door. You open the door and see a Vault-Tec agent. He will offer you to secure your future by using underground fallout shelters. He will ask you to fill some information and that’s where second part of character creation begins.
Vault-Tec needs to know what kind of citizen you are to ensure your future happiness. You will see a screen where you need to enter you name and customize your Attributes:
Total amount of attribute points you receive in the beginning is 21 and you need to spend all of them. Every point can be spent for increasing one of the characteristics. You can spend all points for only one attribute or distribute them.
A guy in the demo video from E3 2015 used following build:
It doesn’t mean that you also have to distribute points like he did. You can create your own build according to your future plans and expectations.
After you finish distributing your attribute points you will start playing Fallout 4.
It’s important to distribute SPECIAL points correctly because each attribute has 10 perks connected with it. Perks allow to increase definite abilities of your character and unlock new powers. Here is a list of perks in Fallout 4:
