This perk system seems geared towards multiple playthroughs.
The closer we get to the release of Fallout 4, the more information we’re getting about just what kinds of little features we’re going to see when it finally launches. Every-time we get these new pieces of information, the thing that stands out the most is that the game is incredibly massive and detailed. Underlining the detail included in this game is a new report showing that the XP system in this game is going to have 275 separate XP levels and that equals to one for every individual perk.
Gamespresso points out that, you will still level up using XP, and each level increase will still give you a point to spend on a perk as has been the case in previous games in the series, but now those perks have varying XP levels all their own. It essentially means that if you max out every single tier of every single perk you’ll top off with a total of 275.
Basically, Fallout 4 players, in order to get the best experience possible will want to level up as many perks as possible in order to get the best experience as possible out of the game. This also means that if you can’t get all the perks leveled up as far as possible in one playthrough, there will be numerous reasons to play the game again, focusing on other perks. That many XP tiers and perks means each player will truly have a different experience playing the open world game. Fallout 4 is due out on November 10, 2015 for the PS4, Xbox One and PC.
