Almost every gamer has commented on how bad Cyberpunk 2077 was. The game's launch was associated with critics' and players' dissatisfaction due to a ton of bugs and even the removal of the project from digital stores and money refunds. After that, Cyberpunk 2077 was returned to the market, and the developers tried to fix its flaws with numerous patches. However, the biggest update has arrived just now.
On February 15th, the developers released pack 1.5, which contains many improvements and new gameplay features for next-generation consoles (PS5 and Xbox Series X/S). Xbox owners will receive it automatically via Smart Delivery; those with a PS will have to re-download the game from the store. It is already available for use but weighs quite a lot, around 68 GB. It is also reported that there is a possibility of a standalone release of this update shortly.
The game now takes full advantage of the hardware's capabilities, including ray tracing and 4K support with dynamic upscaling. On PS5, all the features of DualSense controllers are used: adaptive triggers and haptic feedback. And when using headphones, you can fully appreciate the quality of Spatial Audio. The developers also provided faster loading.
The perk system has been completely redesigned, so players will be able to allocate skill points in a new way after the update. The opponents' AI has also undergone significant changes. They will attack you more effectively and take cover when under fire. In general, the city inhabitants have become more "alive" and react realistically to your behavior. The update changed the balance of weapons, improved transport management, added the opportunity to rent apartments and equip the main character's home.
For anyone who still doubts, the developers have made a trial version of Cyberpunk 2077 available until March 15th. You can play it for five hours and then decide if it's worth buying. Please share your impressions if you have already tried this update! Did you like it?
