Cyberpunk 2077 Patched to Version 1.23

I’ve long completed, and overall, very much enjoyed what Cyberpunk 2077 had to offer. I largely got through the PC version without any major bugs, but I realise I’m the exception, not the rule. However, if you’re still romping through the city streets, you’ll be glad to hear that there’s a new wave of fixes for the game. Furthermore, the patch notes show that they’ve updated the game on PC, consoles and Stadia, so everyone gets some benefit here.

Cyberpunk 2077 Patched to Version 1.23

The full release notes are below, but there are a few of the usual things and some highlights. There are many crash fixes, improvements to animations, UI elements, physics, some memory management improvements, and overall gameplay systems; the usual stuff, really.

There’s a good range of PC-specific fixes too, such as the annoying bug that causes the game to become unresponsive if you Alt+Enter to enter windowed or fullscreen mode. That one really pissed me off, so I’m glad it’s fixed. They’ve also fixed a weird bug that wouldn’t let you click the upgrade button when using the 1280 x720 resolution.

The update will automatically download on all platforms, so just be sure to load up your client and let it do its thing.
