The Witcher Preview

GameShark is offering up a new two-page preview of The Witcher, giving us a good overview of CD Projekt's ambitious RPG before its release next month.
Upgrading your weapons with tokens is a must when embarking on quests. Similar to unlocking new spells by assigning tokens to magical signs, you can increase a weapon's attack power and latent abilities with tokens. A handful of different weapons are available through the course of the game, each tailored to a specific use in combat. For instance, the steel sword easily cuts through a slithering tentacle-filled creature, yet the moon blade isn't nearly as effective. Knowing which weapon is best applied to an enemy not only helps you in battle, but also in determining where to spend tokens.
