Fallout 76 is a new type of game for the franchise, and presents a coherent, lasting world. You will also be persistent, as the Bethesda marketer, VP Pete Hines, has confirmed that when you assign your SPECIAL POINTS, you can not respect them.
A fan on Twitter asked what can be done if he reaches Level 50, has used all his special points and feel dissatisfied with his character building. Can he respect or need to start a brand new sign from scratch? Hines answered clearly.
SPECIAL points are the acronym used on your various statistics in the Fallout games, which stand for strength, perception, stamina, karisma, intelligence, agility and happiness. The games have a story of rewarding smart distribution of SPECIALS ̵
Becoming stuck with your decisions makes sense for an online-connected world, since a large part of the game will be choices and consequences as they relate to interaction with other players. But it may also mean that you will plan the building a bit more carefully from the very beginning.
We recently extended hands-on time with Fallout 76. You still have the opportunity to swap and customize your character, with features like support and cosmetic microtransactions. For details on how and when to get into the upcoming beta, check out our guide to everything we know so far.
