CD Projekt RED has announced that they are currently working on a major patch for The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt. The patch will release on all platforms simultaneously, with a release date yet to be announced. Some of the changes include improved horse behavior and also an alternative movement response for Geralt. Full patch notes will be released later this week.
List of key improvements in patch 1.07
– A new, alternative (optional) movement response mode for Geralt.
– A player stash for storing items, available in various locations throughout the game. Stash locations are marked on the player’s map.
– Crafting and Alchemy components no longer add to the overall inventory weight.
– Books are now placed in a dedicated tab in the Inventory and books that have already been read are properly grayed out.
– Multiple sorting options are now available in the Inventory.
– Alchemy formulas and crafting diagrams can be “pinned”, meaning all components and ingredients required to make them will be conveniently marked in the Shop panel.
– Dozens of fixes for quest related issues, both major and minor.
– A few performance enhancements, including the optimization of FX, scenes and general gameplay.
– Various improvements to horse behavior.
While this patch news is a welcome surprise, some may not be so happy to know that there will not be any free DLC this week. This is because CD Projekt Red is all hands on deck with the patch. The final piece of free DLC for the game will release next week. Once that has been released, the paid installments will begin with the Hearts Of Stone in October followed by Blood and Wine in early 2016. The upcoming content will add over thirty hours of new gameplay along with a brand new in-game region to explore, Toussaint.
