As expected, CD Projekt Red is rolling out the version 1.1 update for Cyberpunk 2077. The update is available on all platforms, including PC, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Stadia, for free.
V1.1 focuses only on repairing some of the big game-breaking glitches and, in some cases, even increases performance. I’m not going to get through the whole list of bug fixes here, and you can find them out below in the source page, but most of them refer to missions that had bugs that stopped the game from advancing further.
The performance optimization knowledge is less precise, but CDPR reports that it has increased memory use across all platforms. In certain parts of the game, I did not see a very big change in the memory allocation that I am familiar with the max out of my VRAM, but your mileage may differ.
The PS4 Pro (and consequently the PS5 that uses the same build) gets crowd speed optimizations and even some crash corrections on the consoles. You get enhanced memory optimization in multiple places on the Xbox One. Meanwhile, there are a few updates and changes in the Stadia update of the regular deadzone on the controller.
CDPR also states that, particularly on the PC, it has fixed numerous crashes in the game. Oddly enough, I never encountered any crashes previous to downloading this patch but got one in the first few minutes of playing after patching.
If you were anticipating improvements to the AI or other basic facets of the game, then you won’t find them here. V1.1 continues to play the same as before, with less glitches. CDPR says that this update sets the groundwork for the forthcoming updates and reflects on enhancements to reliability and bug fixes.
Hopefully, upcoming releases, while continuing to patch the glitches, would carry even more gameplay and content-related improvements.
