Witcher 3 Wild Hunt free DLC: developer says downloading leaked DLC may affect gaming experience; announces patch 1.07 for all platforms


CD Projekt Red, the developers behind The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt has warned gamers against downloading a leaked DLC of a Ciri Zerrikanian outfit which was released ahead of schedule.

According to the Polish studio, gamers should not download the DLC because it still isn’t ready and may result in issues that could affect players’ gaming experience.

Even if this means that the team is taking a week off from releasing free DLCs, the studio has assured that it is planning to release at least three more add-ons in the coming weeks.

In related news, the studio has announced a major patch that will make several key changes in all versions of the game.

According to a report by Gamespot, the 1.07 patch will include a long list of changes, including improvements to horse behavior, bug fixes for quest related issues and an alternative movement response mode for Geralt.

The patch will also include a player stash for storing items that are marked on the players’ maps and are situated in various locations of the game.

Crafting and alchemy components will also no longer be included in the overall inventory weight.

Aside from storage, there will now be multiple storing options in the inventory, while books that have already been read will be grayed out.

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, the list read.

Gamers will also benefit from optimized effects, scenes and an improvement in the gameplay.

This is the first time that the studio will release a patch for all versions at the same time as the team usually releases patches first on PC before other consoles.
