CD Projekt Red has finally dropped the patch notes for what looks to be the largest Cyberpunk 2077 update since its launch nearly five months ago.
While players still don't have a release date for Patch 1.2, CD Projekt Red (CDPR) has made good on its promise of accountability and transparency by publishing its full patch notes early on Monday, March 29. The sheer length of the release can be intimidating to players looking to make heads or tails of the whole thing. It can be difficult to figure out where to start. Fortunately, we've taken care of that below.
Cyberpunk 2077 Patch 1.2 Patch Notes Explained
CDPR broke the notes into over ten distinct headings with hundreds of tweaks, fixes, improvements, and general changes waiting in the wings. With the scope of just how broken this game was on launch aside, its clear the team have been working hard to bring players the game they dreamed of last December.
It's almost impossible to list just how many different issues will be taken care of following this patch. Quest fixes, prompting issues, t-posing, story soft block resolutions, cinematic improvements, AI updates, and platform-specific rewrites will be hitting players hopefully within the next few days.
Some of the most notable changes include:
- A designated "Mods" folder
- NCPD improvements (radius and AI)
- Vehicle "unstuck" feature
- Better driving (in general)
- An intense amount of weapon nerfs and buffs
- Perk level changes
- Quest/Progression and pacing improvements
- Gig prompts actually working
- Better dialogue interruption
- No more missing mouth animations
- No more T-Posing for dominance in inappropriate settings (e.g.: riding a motorcyle)
- Improved cyberspace visuals
- Better stability
- Crafting system additions (including tags on crafted items)
Better yet, the entire list ends with "and many more," suggesting that this may not even be the full breadth and width of the patch. While we would urge a bit of caution and leniency within the first few days of upload—thousands of live players are much more likely to find game-breaking issues in the new update over a single quality assurance team—this is undoubtedly something to be excited about.
Could this be the resurgence needed to turn Cyberpunk 2077's epic flop into a redemption story that rivals No Man's Sky?
