The Witcher - hands-on

What you will be able to collect are ingredients to concoct potions, which can be mixed to different strengths. You see, as well as health and all the other on-screen indicators, Geralt has to keep an eye on the toxicity of the strength potions he throws down his neck. Too many stimulants and our hero might get a bit woozy - with graphical on-screen wobbly effects to match.

Indeed, the game tester who’s sat beside us through all this was proudto announce that you can get drunk in the game, his grin suggesting that his own in-game benders might be more entertaining than those out of game.
