“It fixes the most common issues players have encountered and improves overall performance on all platforms, especially in Dogtown,” according to CD Projekt.
The update also addresses an issue where PS5 save files could get corrupted after playing Phantom Liberty using the base game save.
We’ve listed the update’s highlights below, while the full patch notes can be found here.
Patch 2.01 highlights
- The distorted effect caused by selecting a specific dialogue option when talking to Johnny at the end of Automatic Love will no longer persist on the screen.
- V will no longer die in The Heist by falling through the elevator when riding to the 42nd floor with low FPS.
- Fixed an issue where the UI could show controller inputs when playing with keyboard and mouse.
- Made it possible to properly switch to arms cyberware by cycling through weapons.
- Gig: Breaking News will be properly triggered after approaching the quest area.
- Vehicle radio volume will be adjusted so it’s not too quiet when compared to other sounds in the game.
- Addressed the issue of corrupted saves on PlayStation by increasing the maximum save file size limit. Note: this won’t fix the saves corrupted before the update. If you’re experiencing the issue, keep a working save (e.g. resave it as manual save) till 2.01 arrives.
- Performance improvements for both PC and consoles, especially in the Dogtown area.
While CD Projekt plans to address outstanding Cyberpunk 2077 issues with relatively minor patches like 2.01, game director Gabe Amatangelo has said the studio isn’t planning any more major updates as it’s switching its attention to other projects, including the game’s sequel.
The next Cyberpunk game, Project Orion, will now enter development at a new US-based studio called CD Projekt Red North America.
