Cyberpunk 2077 could easily represent one of the best games in recent memory. If, of course, CD Projekt Red can actually fix the masses of bugs that currently plague it. And yes, that is a BIG if. Albeit, I will say that, overall, the PC version of it is fairly sound. – Well, if you did decide to put it down, then it might be time to pick it up again as CD Projekt Red has announced the launch of their 1.1 release of Cyberpunk 2077. – The first of two major updates looking, fingers crossed, to actually get the game in a relatively solid state!
Cyberpunk 2077 1.1
As you might expect, the list of fixes is pretty long, so if you plan to fully read the list below, you might want to grab yourself a coffee first. Ready? – Ok, here we go!
Various stability improvements including:
Memory usage improvements in various systems within the game: characters, interactions, navigation, in-game videos (news, tv, etc.), foliage, laser effects, minimap, devices, AI, street traffic, environmental damage system, GPU-related, and more.
Various crash fixes (related to, among others, loading saves, game opening/closing and Point of No Return).
Fixed an issue where calls from Delamain would end immediately and seem like they cannot be picked up in Epistrophy.
Fixed an issue where players would not receive calls from Delamain when approaching relevant vehicles in Epistrophy.
Fixed an issue where the objective could get stuck on “Answer the call from Mr. Hands” in M’ap Tann Pèlen.
Fixed an issue where Judy could teleport underground in Pyramid Song.
Fixed an issue where it would be impossible to talk to Zen Master in Poem of The Atoms.
Fixed an issue where Takemura wouldn’t call in Down on the Street.
Fixed an issue where Jackie could disappear in The Pickup.
Fixed an issue where it could be impossible to get out of the car in The Beast in Me: The Big Race.
Fixed an issue where players could stop receiving calls and messages after moving too far away from A Day In The Life area.
Fixed an issue where opening the package wouldn’t update Space Oddity.
Retro-fixed the saves affected by a rare issue where speaking to Judy in Automatic Love would be impossible due to an invisible wall. The underlying issue is under investigation.
Fixed an issue that prevented players from collecting the reward in Gig: Freedom of the Press. The quest will auto-complete for those who could not collect the reward previously, and the reward will be provided automatically.
Fixed an issue where Delamain would remain silent throughout Epistrophy if the player initially refused to help him.
Fixed an issue where prompt for exiting braindance could be missing.
Removed an invalid item from loot.
Fixed an issue where a grenade’s trajectory could be displayed in photo mode.
Fixed particles’ hue appearing pink when viewed close up.
Fixed cars spawning incorrectly in Reported Crime: Welcome to Night City.
Fixed an issue where completing one of theassaults in progress in Santo Domingo would sometimes not contribute towards progression for The Jungle achievement, preventing its completion.
Addressed the issue responsible for saves getting oversized (related to the modifier indicating if the item is crafted), and trimmed the excess size from already existing saves (note: this won’t fix PC save files corrupted before 1.06 update).
Fixed an issue where input could stop registering upon opening the weapon wheel and performing an action.
Fixed an issue where the “Continue” button in the Main Menu could load an end game save.
Performance optimization of crowds on PlayStation 4 Pro and PlayStation 5.
Various crash fixes on PlayStation 4.
Improved memory usage for character creation, mirrors, scanning, camera remote control, menus (inventory, map) on Xbox One, Xbox One X and Xbox One S.
It will now be possible to obtain achievements while in Steam offline mode. Note: Offline mode needs to be enabled before starting the game. This change does not work retroactively.
Addressed the game startup crashes related to loading cache on NVIDIA graphics cards.
Concert audio should no longer be inaudible in Never Fade Away.
Fixed corrupted textures on several melee weapons.
Tweaked default deadzone settings to be more responsive. Note: the change will not affect settings unless they’re set to default.
What Do We Think?
It should be noted that this patch is looking more towards improving the overall stability of Cyberpunk 2077 rather than outright fixing every single problem the game has. Fortunately though, CD Projekt Red has already confirmed that the next major update (1.2) should be released within the next month and, as such, and all going well, while it may have taken a couple of months, we might finally be ready to see Night City as intended. And, of course, without the semi-amusing occurrence of a car or NPC flying off into oblivion!
Cyberpunk 2077 version 1.1 is available now and should automatically update the next time you go to launch the game!
