Leaked footage from a Gamescom demo of Bethesda's post-apocalyptic RPG Fallout 4 has surfaced, and it gives us our best look yet at how players will go about choosing their various character altering perks — even if our best look yet is a blurry, over-the-shoulder recording of the game being played.

Rather than scrolling through a long list of perks, Bethesda looks like they've adopted a more unique approach to browsing available perks. An animated Vault Boy demonstrates each perks used in true Fallout fashion when you highlight any given perk. You can watch it for yourself in the video below. It's a little hard to make out some of the specifics, but the return of the "Bloody Mess" perk should have fans of previous entries in the franchise jumping with joy. You can read more about how Fallout 4's new character progression system, including the game's 270 perks, here.

After a look at the game's perk system, the video dives straight into some new gameplay footage, including our first look at Fallout 4's lockpicking and hacking minigames. They appear to be basically the same systems used in Fallout 3 and Fallout: New Vegas, but hey, don't fix what isn't broken.

The rest of the demo mostly consists of making feral ghouls explode with various Wasteland weaponry, such as the laser rifle and laser musket.

We learned tons of new details about the game at Gamescom, like the fact that the game has no level cap and players will be able to continue playing after the end of the main story. That should come as welcome news to Fallout 3 players who thought their adventure through the Wasteland came to an abrupt end at the conclusion of the game's final story mission.
