Patch 2.01 Preview for Cyberpunk 2077

The upcoming Patch 2.01 for Cyberpunk 2077 aims to address several key fixes and improvements. While the release date is yet to be confirmed, the support site for Cyberpunk 2077 has given us a glimpse of what to expect in this patch.

One of the fixes included in Patch 2.01 resolves the distorted effect that occurs when selecting a specific dialogue option at the end of the quest “Automatic Love.” This issue will no longer persist on the screen, ensuring a smoother gameplay experience.

Another fix addresses a frustrating bug where the protagonist, V, can die by falling through the elevator during “The Heist” quest if played with low frames per second (FPS). Patch 2.01 rectifies this issue, preventing V from meeting an untimely demise.

The patch also aims to resolve an issue where the UI could show controller inputs when playing with a keyboard and mouse, providing a more accurate representation of the player's chosen input method.

Additionally, Patch 2.01 allows players to switch to their equipped Arms Cyberware by cycling through weapons, improving convenience and efficiency during combat scenarios.

Other improvements include ensuring that the quest “Gig: Breaking News” triggers correctly when approaching the quest area and adjusting the vehicle radio volume to be more balanced compared to other in-game sounds.

Furthermore, Patch 2.01 addresses a problem with corrupted saves on PlayStation consoles by increasing the maximum save file size limit. However, it's important to note that this fix will not restore saves corrupted prior to the update.

For performance enhancements, both PC and console players can expect improvements, particularly in the Dogtown area, which has been known to have lag issues.

It is worth mentioning that CD Projekt RED has plans to move their future projects, including the next Witcher game, to Unreal Engine 5 as part of a strategic partnership with Epic Games. This transition will help overcome some limitations of the current aging RED Engine.

Overall, Patch 2.01 for Cyberpunk 2077 promises to address various bugs, improve performance, and enhance the gameplay experience for players. Stay tuned for detailed coverage of the patch's changes when it goes live.
