Cyberpunk 2077’s First Big Patch Makes Over 60 Fixes

CD Projekt Red has rolled out the first big patch for the troubled Cyberpunk 2077, offering up over 60 fixes for the buggy game.

In total Hotfix 1.05 attempts to make over 60 fixes for the RPG that has had a troubled launch since the game released on December 10th.

Hotfix 1.05 will fix reported issues related to quests, gameplay, visuals, the User Interface, performance stability, specific bugs to console & PC, and more. It also adds a little more “warmth” to HDR.

I’ve been playing Cyberpunk 2077 on the PS4 Pro and to be honest, I’ve been enjoying the game so far.

However I have noticed some issues such as Jackie’s gun disappearing, text for a questline not updating on the screen, a bike falling out of the sky and issues with textures taking their time to load-up.

I have also been playing Cyberpunk 2077 post patch 1.5 and while not perfect, the game’s visuals look a little nicer, textures have been loading up sooner and questline text on-screen has been updating.

That’s not to say that the game isn’t perfect and that I won’t encounter any issues later on, but from a personal standpoint I can notice the improvements already with the first big patch.

As detailed in the patch notes, some of the new fixes mean Jackie won’t disappear during specific missions, certain dialogue won’t trigger twice, NPCs will take cover faster and weapon crosshair has also been improved.

A number of console-specific fixes have also been put into place, which is a great start considering base consoles seem to be where many of Cyberpunk 2077’s issues lie. The console fixes are as follows:

Console-specific

  • Improved image sharpness with Chromatic Aberration and Film Grain on.
  • Settings should no longer reset to default after several game session restarts.
  • Fixed visual issues occurring during the transition between The Heist and Love Like Fire.
  • Corrected the look of several vehicles.
  • [Xbox] Entering combat while Synaptic Accelerator is active no longer ends in player health bar not being displayed.
  • [Xbox] Game no longer becomes unresponsive when signing out from a profile when the controller disconnection message is visible.
  • Telemetry consent request will appear once more due to an earlier issue with settings reset.
  • Fixed an issue whereby it was possible to fall down the elevator shaft in Megabuilding H8 in Automatic Love.

CD Projekt Red says that the next wave of big patches will arrive in January and February of 2020 respectively. 

At this stage it’s practically impossible keeping up-to-date with all the issues that have plagued Cyberpunk 2077 since it launched a short while ago.
