Gameplay is similar to Fallout 3. Completing quests and acquiring experience levels up the character, allowing for new abilities. With an optional first- or third-person view, players can explore Fallout 4‍ '​s open world setting at will, allowing nonlinear gameplay. Additional party members can accompany the player, who are able to assist them in battles. Players have the ability to construct and deconstruction buildings and items, and use them to build a settlement, which can attract and be inhabited by non-playable characters.

Unlike the previous two titles — Fallout 3 and Fallout: New Vegas — that used the Gamebryo engine, Fallout 4 uses the Creation Engine, previously used in The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim
Modified for Fallout 4, the Creation Engine includes a revamped character editor system that allows freeform creation of faces without the use of sliders seen in previous games. Instead,the player can click and drag each feature of the face to accurately customize their character, which can either be a man or woman as the previous Fallout titles have featured.
