Cyberpunk 2077 updates for PS5, Xbox Series available now
Patch 1.5 for Cyberpunk 2077 was confirmed and released on Tuesday, after months of speculation and leaks. CD Projekt Red (CDPR) had planned to deliver the enhancements last year, but they were postponed until early 2022. Now, those who own the game on the PS4 or Xbox One will receive a free upgrade to the newest release.
Beginners will be able to play a substantial portion of the game for free on the PS5 and Xbox Series X/S, thanks to a five-hour trial. Cyberpunk 2077 is presently on sale for half price on the PlayStation Store, Xbox Store, and GOG.
Players may anticipate quicker loading speed, dynamic scaling, and other visual and technological enhancements. The PS5 version incorporates haptic feedback, an established speaker, and adaptable trigger features, as well as activity cards and 3D audio from the DualSense controller.
On the PS5 and Xbox Series X, there are performance and ray-tracing options. The game will operate in 4K at 60 frames per second in performance mode, with periodic, minor framerate reductions.
Players will also receive medium/half-resolution SSR (Screen Space Reflection) quality. When ray-tracing is enabled, the framerate drops to 30 fps with SSR quality set to high/half-res. The game will operate in 1440p at 30fps on the Xbox Series S.
The current-gen versions will be released 14 months after the disastrous debut of Cyberpunk 2077. At first, there were many complaints of the game operating horribly on PS4 and Xbox One, prompting Sony to remove Cyberpunk 2077 from the PlayStation Store.
Both Sony and Microsoft issued refunds to any player who requested one. For six months, the game was unavailable on Sony’s digital marketplace until CDPR whipped it into shape with a lengthy list of problem fixes.
Offers upgrades for PS4, Xbox One, PC, Stadia
Patch 1.5 provides upgrades for all platforms, namely PS4, Xbox One, PC, and Stadia, in addition to the current-gen versions. The perk system has been completely revamped. Perk points have been unallocated, allowing players to rebalance their builds depending on the new skill trees.
Opponents are stronger, and they can locate shelter more easily. Crowds are more receptive to violent actions by platers, and some spectators may even assault them if they feel threatened. However, these modifications will not apply to PS4 or Xbox One.
More character customization choices, including a broader variety of makeup styles, are being added by CDPR. In addition, users will be able to change the appearance of their V in-game for the first time. They will be able to rent flats (or home bases) in various sections of town and alter the look of their living space as well.
This patch contains a lot more content, such as changes to relationships, the loot system, and the economy, as well as the ability to move slowly and extra poses for Johnny Silverhand. In the Americas, Spanish voiceover support is available, although only on current-generation consoles. CDPR is leaving some adjustments to the players to discover on their own.
The patch is approximately 50 GB in size on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC. OStadia users will not need to download it. On the other hand Owners of the PS5 will need to manually download the latest version from the PlayStation Store, and they will be able to convert one of their save files.
