Pacifism is ‘not necessarily a goal’ for Fallout 4

It’s a wasteland, after all

Officially, Fallout 4 players will only be able to romance human companions. They’ll also have to resort to violence to complete the story; no perfect pacifist runs, from the sound of it.

“You can avoid [killing] a lot,” VP of development Todd Howard said in an interview with The Guardian. “I can’t tell you that you can play the whole game without violence – that’s not necessarily a goal of ours – but we want to support different play styles as much as we can.”

Gamers may just find a way to sidestep that goal, whether it be through mods or straight ingenuity. Otherwise, I guess the race is on to see who can beat Fallout 4 with the fewest possible kills.
