CD Projekt has announced that a "very large update" in the form of version 1.07 is coming soon to The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt. The patch will add a new movement response mode for Geralt, make a number of changes to the inventory system, and give Roach a bit of a tune-up.

A closer look at what's coming:
•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.

CD Projekt didn't get into how the new "movement response mode" will actually work, but Marcin Momot explained that it's intended to address complaints about how Geralt handles in the game. "Some players have been reporting that Geralt's responsiveness was not up to their preferences so we are introducing a toggle to switch between two types of responsiveness," he wrote. "Once you play it, you'll be able to choose the one that fits you better." It's a selectable option, he added separately, so that players who prefer the old system (or are at least used to it) aren't forced to endure unnecessary changes.

The only downside to the patch is that the studio has been so focused on getting it finished on time that there won't be any free DLC this week. A detailed breakdown of what the 1.07 update will entail will be released later this week.
