The Witcher 3's big new patch detailed

New, 95 comments

CD Projekt Red today detailed some of the changes coming to its RPG The Witcher 3 in its next major update known as Patch 1.07.

According to a forum post by community lead Marcin Momot, changes will include new stash locations for storing gear, an abolition of a weight cost for certain inventory items and a re-organization of books. Horse behaviors will also be improved.

As a result of the update, which is due soon on all platforms, there will be no free DLC released this week. "Since it's been all hands on deck working to finish and release this patch on time, we won't be publishing a free DLC this week," posted Momot. "Don't worry, free content comes back next week. We've gathered so much feedback from you over the past couple of weeks and we want to implement as much of it as possible."

Here are Momot's patch notes in full:

  • 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.
