Adjust to the Light

Light is actually more of strong presence this time around in Fallout 4. No, you don’t have to worry about seeking shade due to some angry sun that wants to punish a world that just can’t give up on war. However, things are often brighter this time around in interesting ways.

Fallout 4 takes place in a wide open wasteland in and around Boston. There are plenty of unique locales scattered around the exceptionally large area that offer some interesting light situations. From dark caves filled with threats both human and synthetic, to neon lit dens of iniquity. Picking people out in the dark or among tons of spotlights is often difficult when not using V.A.T.S., and that can be a problem in certain parts of the game. Learning how to use the light to your advantage while also not letting it inhibit your activities is a very valuable skill to have.
