The hard cap would be the absolute maximum level you can achieve, but usually has diminished returns and is not worth pursuing. The soft cap is often referred to as the level you can get to easily, or throughout the natural progression of an rpg style game. You can usually beat the game by achieving the soft cap level. Elder Scroll games are probably a good example of this.

The soft cap is often referred to as the level you can get to easily, or throughout the natural progression of an rpg style game. You can usually beat the game by achieving the soft cap level. Final Fantasy, Fallout and Elder Scroll games are probably a good example of this.
