New details have been revealed regarding how XP gets distributed in Fallout 4, and we can officially brace ourselves for a rather in-depth level system as it seems that the game will have 275 separate XP levels, each one for each individual perk.
According to an interview in Official Xbox Magazine, not only will you level up your character, but each individual perk they come with too. Levelling up each perk means you would need to climb up 275 separate levels for each perk, which is a whole other task. This probably drives players to pick what they want to level up and stick with it.
OXM said that:
You’ll still level up via XP, and each level increase will still give you a point to spend on a perk, but now those perks have varying XP levels of their own. It’s perk-ception, essentially, and means that, should you theoretically play long enough to max out every tier of every single one gaining untold buffs and no doubt all kinds of horrendous real-world illnesses in the process – you’ll top off with a total of 275
We cannot wait for Fallout 4, and the more we learn about it, the more the hype grows. Fallout 4 is set for release on 10 November 2015 on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC
