In yet another update, CD Projekt RED continues to fix the now infamous Cyberpunk 2077. But it seems as though the hard work is paying off as the game is starting to play a lot better and the patch notes are getting shorter. That’s not to say it’s anywhere near finished – that’ll be the day, eh? – although the problems must be getting more manageable by now. So much so that I wonder what the last fix will be?
Cyberpunk 2077 has received another patch on the PlayStation 4, which promises to bring a string of fixes yet again to the game. And if the previous update is anything to go by (patch 1.21), the enhancements should be noticeable to say the least. So far, the game has made a steady yet undoubted improvement that is starting to gather positive comments. But let’s just hope the fixes keep on coming.
I’m hoping for a native PlayStation 5 that delivers what was originally promised, and I can’t begin to imagine what target Sony has set for its PlayStation Store’s return…
The update also affects the PlayStation 5’s backwards compatible version, so the improvements can be enjoyed by all. Plus, you can read all about them below in the full patch notes that I’ve copied in. But if you’re simply looking for a quick preview, I can help with that too.
For starters, a glitch in Johnny’s appearance – triggered by the Nomad Car – has been fixed. And the frequent flyers achievement will now count the Metro: Memorial Park dataterm towards its goal. Your phone will open in the apartment at the start of a particular mission, plus Takemura will teleport from the docks when he’s a little stuck. Finally, you won’t be disarmed after interacting with a pesky little maintenance panel in Riders on the Storm and clipping in the NPCs’ clothing will no longer ruin their fashion sense.
