Cyberpunk 2077 May Get a Major Update Soon, Discovery in EGS Suggests

Another update for Cyberpunk 2077 has been found on Epic Games Store. The patch is said to weigh almost 40 GB and could be the first step towards DLC release.

Last week, an advertisement for Cyberpunk 2077 surfaced online that seemed to herald the "biggest update" in the game's history. CD Projekt RED quickly clarified that it was just an element of the marketing campaign reminding us of patch 1.2, but there's no doubt that the Polish studio's latest game still needs improvements. It turns out that their next portion may be available in two to three weeks - this is the conclusion reached by Reddit user PricklyAssassin, who, using the Epic Inspector tool, discovered an update for Cyberpunk 2077 on Epic Games Store, "weighing" exactly 38.2GB, which is probably currently being tested. What might it contain?

According to the Internet user, the patch will not bring any new features to the game. However, we can expect it to fix some of the bugs we still encounter in Night City (CD Projekt RED has recently revealed a list of the most frequently reported problems). It is also possible that the update will somehow prepare Cyberpunk for the free DLCs, which the developers promised long before the game's December release. According to PricklyAssassin, this may be evidenced by the fact that all substitute expansion objects have been removed from Epic Games Store. What's more, the update will even be required in order to play offline - which may or may not mean that it will add an expansion manager of some sort, which it is currently lacking.

We have to admit that it's high time for new content, because since December, CD Projekt RED has been focused solely on fixing Cyberpunk. Thanks to subsequent patches, the game's technical condition became good enough for it to return to PlayStation Store. And so far the game has been positively evaluated by 76% of more than 370 thousand users who wrote a review on Steam (64% of about 6 thousand in the last 30 days).

The patch mentioned in this news will of course be available not only on Epic Games Store, but also on GOG, Steam and consoles. While waiting for it, you can see how amazingly Cyberpunk 2077 looks after installing over 100 mods:
