PRI MAL NEED S
Turn an RPG into a survival sim
Geralt has needs in the non-modded Witcher3, of course; needs that tend to be met by either a lusty sorceress or a mug of Kaedwenian Stout. But if you want to turn the White Wolf into a proper person who needs to eat, drink and sleep now and again, the PrimalNeeds mod is the download for you. There’s finally a proper point to all that lovely food and drink you’ll find in every castle, inn and hovel. A famished, thirsty, or knackered Geralt will face a tough time in combat, as his ability to run, roll, block or regenerate stamina may be diminished, depending on how needy he is.
Survival added quite a bit to the later Fallout games (via their optional Survival modes), so it’s great to see similar systems being added to TheWitcher3’ s world – and you can tweak PrimalNeeds as you see fit.
Survival meters aren’t out of place in a game with real-time beard growth.
