This week, players of “The Witcher 3” should expect a rather big update bearing bug fixes and changes. Developer CD Projekt RED said the update was based on fan feedback.

Among the major changes are options for inventory. Announced via the official CD Projekt RED forums, other changes include the availability of stash locations via markers in the map, the ability to pin alchemy formulas and to craft diagrams with easier access to marked ingredients, and an alternative movement response mode for Geralt.

There are also some fixes for major and minor issues reported by fans, including improvements on horse behavior and enhancement to the gameplay. “The Witcher 3” 1.07 patch will come to all platforms, but the developers will not roll out any free DLCs. Those will resume next week.

Apart from the fixes for this week’s major update, CD Projekt RED appears to be preparing something big for fans, possibly to compensate for the lack of DLCs this week, DualShockers reported.

“There’s something big brewing and will be coming soon though. More info probably next week but no confirmations yet,” said Community Coordinator Marcin Momot as quoted by DualShockers.

Whether or not this is related to the briefly leaked DLC that features an alternative outfit for Ciri has yet to be confirmed. However, Momot did acknowledge the leaked expansion and explained it had been accidentally released, then retracted because it wasn't ready.

Gearnuke said the outfit shown in the retracted DLC was more-or-less final.

Momot also acknowledged fans’ reaction to Triss’s romance in “The Witcher 3” and has promised there will be changes made to improve on it. Without going into detail, Momot said there will be changes to allow for more player immersion instead of adding more content in this particular aspect of the game.
