In the fourth video Bethesda has produced detailing each branch of the S.P.E.C.I.A.L. system in Fallout 4, we’re introduced to Charisma.
Charisma, like previous games, determines your ability to barter with merchants and to talk your way out of situations. It appears that Charisma will also work on animals in this game, allowing you to pacify or possibly even befriend the nuclear wildlife of Fallout 4.
Your level of addiction to abusive substances will also be metered by your Charisma, though it won’t dull the initial effects of drugs or alcohol.
Fallout 4 will be released for PC, PS4 and Xbox One on Nov. 10, 2015.
