Fallout 4 is an incredibly detailed game with an amazing amount of things to do and see in the Wasteland, but there are still some secrets that even long-time players might not be aware of. Here are 10 of the best kept secrets about Fallout 4 that you might not have known! 10 Best kept secrets about Fallout 4
1) The map is huge
Table of Contents
The map is huge and full of detail. You can visit different parts of the Commonwealth, Boston, and even the Washington DC area. It’s been designed to look like a real location which is something that Bethesda has done well with all of their games in the past. The map also isn’t empty – there are plenty of settlements to visit, people to meet, and enemies to kill. And if you’re feeling creative, you can build your own settlement complete with defenses.
2) There are multiple ways to complete the game
There are multiple ways to complete the game, including a variety of different endings. You can also explore the wasteland in survival mode or make your own character and play as them. The game has been praised for its open world exploration, visuals and combat system. The game is also available on console, PC and mobile devices. In addition to the single player campaign, there are two story-driven games: Fallout Shelter which was released in 2015 and Fallout 76, which was released in 2018.
3) The companions are interesting and complex
The companions are interesting and complex. They have their own opinions, which you can choose to agree or disagree with. They also have different ways of thinking when it comes to combat, settlement building, and dialogue choices. This can lead to some interesting conversations between the different characters in your party. The companions are a great way to explore the game’s many quests and locations as you get to know them better through dialogue choices and combat interactions.
4) The combat is deep and satisfying
Fallout 4’s combat is deep and satisfying. This can be seen in the game’s VATS mechanic, which allows players to target specific body parts of an enemy with a percentage rating. VATS can be used as a slow motion mode to take out enemies one by one or as a way to pause during intense battles. For example, if you want to shoot the head off a raider but there are other enemies around, you can use VATS on them first before taking out your desired target.
5) The quests are well written and engaging
In the game there are many quests that are well written and engaging. One example of this is when you have to rescue a settler from a group of Raiders who have taken over the settlement. The settler will ask for help, telling you that they need more food and medicine. You can either go into combat with the raiders or sneak around them. If you attack them, it will take more time but it is easier than going around them because they can’t see you if you don’t make any noise.
6) The world is incredibly detailed
The world of Fallout is incredibly detailed, a virtual wasteland full of dilapidated buildings and abandoned cars. You can even explore the ruins of Boston, the ghoul infested Fenway Park, or the Super Duper Mart. But don’t worry, you’re not alone in this post-apocalyptic world. The game features dozens of factions to interact with such as Raiders and Super Mutants who will attack you on sight or befriend you if they like your actions enough.
7) There are Easter eggs everywhere
-There are a few Easter eggs in the game that you might not have noticed on your first play through, like the Vault Boy bobblehead and a Giddyup Buttercup toy that can be found at the General Atomics Galleria.
-The General Atomics Galleria is home to some of the latest in robot technology, so it’s no wonder there’s also a store for Giddyup Buttercup toys, which are robots made for kids.
-If you’re looking for something more sophisticated than teddy bears or action figures, try out the Nuka Cola Quantum machine! It’ll let you get your hands on some of the rarest bottles of Nuka Cola ever made.
8) The soundtrack is amazing
The music in Fallout 4 is not just your typical orchestral soundtrack. This soundtrack was composed by Inon Zur who had never done video game work before. The soundtrack features a blend of classical and modern styles, which are both featured in the game. One of my favorite tracks is The Wanderer which you hear as you explore the Wasteland. It really sets the mood for exploring this desolate landscape, and I can’t imagine it being any different.
9) The graphics are gorgeous
The graphics are gorgeous and the lighting is amazing. I didn’t know what to expect because they were just released, but I was blown away. The detail in the environment is very good and there is a lot of variation in what you see. It’s not all dirt, wasteland, and dead trees. There are lots of different environments that you can explore and they’re all very beautiful.
It’s also worth mentioning that Bethesda has done a great job with some minor improvements to the engine including better foliage rendering, ambient occlusion, fuller clouds, and more detailed textures (including those on human skin).
10) There’s so much to do!
It’s not just about the main story, there are so many different things to do in this game. If you don’t want to spend hours hunting down the bad guys, or exploring the wasteland, there are other ways to have fun in Fallout 4. The wasteland is chock-full of interesting people with stories to tell, side quests that will make you laugh and cry (sometimes at the same time), and beautiful vistas that need a moment of admiration.
The game doesn’t end when you get your revenge or save everybody from dying- it just keeps going! There’s always more to explore, more stories to uncover, and more settlements where you can help out.
