If you’ve ever played Fallout 3 and Fallout: New Vegas you are probably familiar with the repair system or CND. If you go back and watch the trailer from E3 and the one today during QuakeCon of Fallout 4, you will notice that it doesn’t appear for the enemies armor or your weapons in your inventory. For the enemies, it seems the CND has been replaced by a health value.
A journalist for PC Gamer tried asking that question to Pete Hines, Vice President of Marketing and Public Relations at Bethesda but was met with a quick “Not talking about it yet,” reply.
When he asked if it were true, Hines just said “”Todd [Howard] said we’re not going to go into details about it yet.”
Just take that for what it’s worth. We’ll all find out soon enough.
