• Patch 1.2 for "Cyberpunk 2077" addresses many game-breaking bugs and annoying issues
  • Performance has been improved across all platforms
  • The game will continue to receive more support in the following months

The latest 1.2 patch for “Cyberpunk 2077” is here to fix many of the bugs that players have been experiencing since launch, greatly enhancing the game’s playability on all platforms.

CD Projekt Red has had a rough beginning in 2021, with their most ambitious game receiving middling feedback and a security breach that resulted in stolen source code. These issues have caused a significant delay in “Cyberpunk 2077’s” update cycle, but now the time has finally arrived for the game’s biggest patch so far.

The 1.2 patch includes a number of significant gameplay changes and a whopping 484 bug fixes, according to PC Gamer. The major changes include adjustments to the spawning mechanics of police units, a new steering sensitivity slider in the options menu, better vehicle responsiveness when FPS fluctuates and a new “unstuck” feature for cars that get caught in awkward places.

These changes were previously documented in a press release released by CDPR.

The smaller updates included in the patch mainly revolve around performance improvements and bug fixes for those that hinder quest progress, mess with NPC behaviors or ruin the game’s cinematic quality.

The 1.2 patch notes had over 400 bug fixes scattered over 11 categories. Players should encounter fewer NPCs getting stuck on doors, less overlapping dialogue, fewer visual anomalies with the graphics and UI and overall less wacky and immersion-breaking experiences.

The patch also includes a number of stability improvements and performance fixes across the board. PS4 and Xbox One users can expect “Cyberpunk 2077” to run significantly better now, but don’t expect overall graphical fidelity to match that of PC or the newer consoles.

There’s still a long way to go before “Cyberpunk 2077” delivers the full experience it promised years ago. A recently-leaked image containing a number of alleged DLC for the game suggests CDPR is working on the immersion-side of things, with improvements to ripperdocs, cybernetic body customization and a “Night City Expanded” DLC that may breathe life the game’s locale. This can come in the form of additional NPCs, vendors, services, activities or better AI for the game’s civilians who are nothing more than cardboard cut-outs.
