The release of Cyberpunk 2077, especially on console, wasn't exactly going off smoothly. CD Project Red is currently working on improving the game through updates. Hotfix 1.05 is now available for consoles and is around 20 gigabytes in size. The update for the PC should be submitted shortly.
The patch fixes 30 bugs that could occur within quests. Among other things, the behavior of NPCs has been improved, and correct progress in the missions has been ensured. In the gameplay area, the response time of NPCs who take cover has been improved. There were also bug fixes in the optics (a warmer HDR display), the user interface (the crosshairs no longer stay permanently on the screen), and the performance & stability (various crash problems have been fixed).

Furthermore, the patch 15 brings PC and console-specific corrections. In cooperation with AMD, a bug fix for 4- and 6-core Ryzen CPUs was installed. Also, the debug console has been removed to prevent features that can lead to crashes or blocked quests. CDPR emphasizes here that they still want to support the modding community and that more information should follow. Ray tracing reflections have also been improved and a crash of the steam overlay when shutting down the game has been fixed. In addition, the memory_pool_budgets.csv file was removed as it was not related to the final version of the game.
For the console, the graphics have mainly been improved in some aspects and some console-specific errors have been fixed.
We give all readers daily free news, articles, guides, videos and podcasts on their favorite games. So far we have financed this site through advertising and kept it as free of clickbaits or paid items as possible, but since COVID-19 this has become increasingly difficult.

For this reason we turn to you now. As a PC Games supporter, you can support us so that we can continue to offer our content in the usual form for free without introducing a paywall or publishing clickbait news like "And you won't believe what happened next …" .
