Depending on the speed and direction of our tactile gestures, we can cause different types of injuries through more or less lethal cuts; On the other hand, there will be no lack of power-up items of all kinds and the typical sorcerer spells, all to weaken our rival and prevent him from killing us.
Although in The Witcher: Monster Slayer we will not only find beasts, but we will also come across different humans who will entrust us with missions, tasks to fulfill as good monster hunters in exchange for juicy rewards. All this and much more to come, on a date yet to be specified for its final launch on iOS and Android smartphones and tablets.
