Last Updated on: 15th August 2022, 10:56 pm

CD Projekt Red have taken their first step towards fixing Cyberpunk with this Cyberpunk 2077 Patch 1.1. However, will this be enough? Below, we check out the Patch Notes and the comments that come along with them.

Patch 1.1 is the first of two major updates coming to Cyberpunk 2077 over the coming months. When discussing Patch 1.1, CDPR have reaffirmed that this update is focused on stability improvements and performance issues. Patch 1.2 will reportedly continue this work.

From the Patch Notes below, there are a few notable fixes. Firstly, Crowd Optimisation has been fixed on PlayStation consoles. PC players will now also be able to earn Steam Achievements while in offline mode. Other than this, the changes are more widespread fixes to Stability and numerous in-game bugs.

Quest/Open World Fixes

  • 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 Plen.
  • 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.

Miscellaneous Changes

  • 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.

PlayStation-Specific Changes

  • 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.

PC-Specific Changes

  • 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.

Stadia-Specific Changes

  • Concert audio should no longer be inaudible in Never Fade Away.
  • Fixed corrupted textures on several melee weapons.

It is also worth noting that, despite there being fixes to “oversized save files”, this Patch doesn’t appear to repair save files that were corrupted following hotfix 1.06. Hopefully, this will be addressed in Patch 1.2.

Patch 1.1 is the first Cyberpunk 2077 update of the year and makes a start on the extremely vague roadmap CDPR shared last week.
