Cyberpunk 2077 Patch 1.1 Goes Live

Patch 1.1 for Cyberpunk 2077 has been released. It mainly focuses on minimizing game crashes, improving memory management and fixing bugs that prevented completion of some missions.

PATCH 1.1 SIZE:
  1. Steam: 6-9 GB
  2. GOG: 1.1 GB
  3. Xbox: 16.54 GB
  4. PS4: 16.84 GB

CD Projekt RED releaseda new update for Cyberpunk 2077. The patch marked 1.1 is now available on all hardware platforms, that is, on PC, consoles and Google Stadia.

The patch is the first of two promised big updates that are supposed to fix the most serious problems troubling the game. The release of the second (1.2) is planned for next month. In the meantime, however, other, smaller patches should be released.

Patch 1.1 focuses on improving the technical layer of Cyberpunk 2077 and removing issues that prevented the completion of some adventures. The update improves engine stability so that the game crashes less often, e.g. when loading saves or data. Improved memory usage of character systems, interactions, navigation, vegetation, laser effects, minimap, equipment, AI, traffic and environmental damage.

The update also fixes many bugs related to the open world, interface and visual effects. The aforementioned changes apply to all hardware platforms, but some fixes have been introduced for specific versions. On PC, we can finally earn Steam Achievements offline. An issue that caused the game to crash when launching on PCs with Nvidia graphics cards has also been fixed.

For the console versions, on the other hand, elements related to crowd simulation on PlayStation 4 Pro and PS5 have been optimized, while Xbox One and Xbox X/S Series have improved memory usage for character creation, using mirrors, scanning, remote camera control, and menus. The full list of changes can be found on the game's official website.

Some players were probably hoping for more, given that this is one of the long announced "big updates". The first reactions are not too positive and there is no shortage of voices disappointed with the scope of improvements. Some of the serious shortcomings associated with the missions are still not fixed, for example, many people still can not locate the router in Killing in the Name, which we need to hack to complete the quest.

To make matters worse, the patch is said to introduce a handful of new problems. While riding a motorcycle, the game can "forget" to render the character's head. There are also reports that the patch may spoil some quests, forcing us to load earlier saves. Some players also report more frequent crashes on their hardware.
