The Witcher 3 Mod adds two Dark Souls-inspired combat mechanics

Modder ‘Mugi-Defalt’ has released a pretty cool mod for The Witcher 3 that brings to it two Dark Souls-inspired combat mechanics.

Going into more details, this mod allows you to backstab and kill stronger enemies than you. Moreover, it adds a counter-attack that can instantly kill weaker enemies.

Surprisingly enough, these two combat tweaks work wonderfully in The Witcher 3. In order to showcase them, the modder released the following video.

It’s a cool little mod that will change the way you play the game, and you can download it from here.

Speaking of The Witcher 3, we also suggest the following mods. Theoretically, these mods should be compatible with this combat mod. The Witcher 3 HD Reworked Project is a must-have mod and does not need any introduction. HDAR – HD Animals Reworked ModHumans of the Continent 4K-2K Textures and the Witcher 2 Overhaul Mod are also two cool mods. And then there are Shades of IronTrue Fires Mod, and a mod that adds a new standalone quest.

Have fun!
