An interesting mechanic revealed during the Gamescom 2019 trailer was urination. In the video, Sam was able to relieve himself in a grassy area. While emptying his bladder, we also found that a gauge appeared next to Sam. The gauge, which measures the urine in milliliters, indicates how much urine is left in Sam’s bladder. Other than that, the player was also able to rotate Sam during the animation, forcing him to spray his pee in whichever direction he was facing.
Although there were no clear signs of mushrooms waiting to sprout in his surroundings, we saw one, half the size of Sam’s leg, emerge adjacent to him after he finished urinating.
According to the director, if players repeatedly urinate on the same spot, there will be be “something good later on.” That aside, it is currently unclear what other purposes urination will serve in terms of survival.
