Cyberpunk 2077 published and developed by CD Projekt Red, was released a few months ago. And it didn’t take long for it to be the most spoken game of 2020. The game has been on the agenda both positively and negatively.
Most of us know that Cyberpunk is an open-world, action-adventure story set in Night City, a megalopolis obsessed with power, glamour, and body modification. You play as V, a mercenary outlaw going after a one-of-a-kind implant that is the key to immortality. The beloved game series Witcher’s developer CD Projekt Red had announced Cyberpunk’s coming in 2016. With successful marketing campaigns and the reputation of The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, CDPR provided the hype to break records despite all issues. One of the most important characters of Cyberpunk Johnny Silverhand is played by Keanu Reeves. Having such a famous and popular actor as one of Cyberpunk’s faces of course was one of the reasons that increased the excitement and expectation for the game.
So Cyberpunk 2077, which made one of the most problematic breakthroughs in the gaming industry, managed to achieve impressive sales figures despite everything that happened. Although Cyberpunk 2077 has not come out as the game of our long-awaited dreams, it still offers us a very good atmosphere and story. When we ignore the mistakes in the game, this duo can be considered as the main reason why some players continue to play. But no worries! CD Projekt Red is still working on Cyberpunk to provide a better experience for its players.
According to Marcin Iwinski’s statement, the co-founder of CD Projekt Red, the company will quit all other projects, including The Witcher, and devote itself to solving Cyberpunk 2077’s problems and restoring its reputation over the coming months. As one of the big steps taken for this, the big update which is normally expected at the end of February came earlier than it’s time.
Here is the official list which has been published from CDPR. If we need to sum up, I guess we can say that the following improvements are going to be like this:
Patch 1.1 is largely focused on stability.
It improves Cyberpunk 2077’s memory usage within its various systems as characters, interactions, navigation, in-game videos, foliage, laser effects, minimap, devices, environmental damage system, GPU-related, and more. It also makes various crash fixes related to loading saves, game-opening, and closing. The patch makes important changes to questing which are the most being complained about by players, such as circumstances where players couldn’t finish certain missions due to game hiccups, too. On the other hand of these quest-specific adjustments, CD Projekt Red is also seemed to be fixing problems that the PS and Xbox players have been going through so the update also dives into issues specific to each platform, not just to PC.
It’s just a beginning, they say
CD Projekt Red says it’s just the beginning of a series of updates they’ll continue in the near future with Patch 1.2, that the studio has described as “larger” and “more significant.” And they shared the following patch timelines they planned for Cyberpunk 2077 with a calendar. They also impressed their goals in a tweet they’d shared.
“In this update, which lays the groundwork for the upcoming patches, we focused on various stability improvements and bug fixes.”
For the fans and the ones still playing despite everything, this may seem like good news we expect to see in real. We will be able to play Cyberpunk 2077 more fluently and safely not getting afraid of losing our improvements. On the other hand, we also can understand that as a small company that provides less game than their competitors CD Projekt. So we will have to wait for the Witcher series new game, either. But however, as long as we get to play Cyberpunk 2077 as we dreamt of, it won’t be a problem to wait for other games at all, I hope.
Hope you enjoy while playing Cyberpunk 2077 with the new update!
