Cyberpunk 2077 Update 2.1 is Surprisingly Big; Will Add Metro and More

As part of update 2.1, Cyberpunk 2077 and the Phantom Liberty DLC will receive, among other things, a subway, a portable radio and improved boss fights. The team at CDPR discussed the upcoming news during today's stream.

As announced, a stream hosted by CD Projekt Red, dedicated to update 2.1, heading to Cyberpunk 2077 and the Phantom Liberty DLC, took place today. During the broadcast, Pawel Sasko (the game's chief quest designer), Monika Janowska (producer), Amelia Kolat and Alicja Kozera (senior community relations managers) discussed the new features that will be introduced in the patch.

New features in the 2.1 update to Cyberpunk 2077

You can watch the stream recording below - subway shots were demonstrated around the 19:45 mark on the video. And if you don't have time for that, just read the summary that the devs posted on the website of Cyberpunk 2077:

"Travel on the NCART metro

Travel around Night City with ease thanks to Night City Area Rapid Transport metro services. Stop worrying about the traffic and enjoy the view thanks to the 5 metro lines stopping on a total of 19 stations spread throughout the city. Service available only after V receives the text message from NCART.

Radio on the go

This one is for all of the travelling audiophiles in our community! We’ve added a radioport that allows V to listen to the radio while exploring Night City on foot or riding the metro. It comes with adjustable volume and it will automatically turn off when game audio is crucial — for example during conversations.

Improved boss fights

We’ve introduced a number of improvements to boss fights, most notably to the one with Adam Smasher. It is now more iconic, as Smasher will better adapt to the tactics used by players, will be much more relentless and will use Sandevistan — much like he was in Cyberpunk: Edgerunners.

Attention all petrolhe… <ekhm> CHOOH2-heads!

We’ve got a lot of new stuff for all motoring enthusiasts out there!

  1. New vehicles, including new motorbikes and a real classic: a cabriolet version of Porsche 911!
  2. Replayable car races, available after the race with Claire is finished.
  3. More immersive motorbike riding — including ability to throw knives while riding, leaning, doing wheelies and even flips!
  4. New car chases — if you mess with the gangs while doing gigs, they might hunt you down later!
  5. Newly opened highway.

Making Cyberpunk even more accessible

We’ve moved all of the existing accessibility options and added a handful more to a new Accessibility tab in game settings. Would you like a simplified UI? Or maybe larger fonts? We’ve got you covered! You can read more about our accessibility features here.

As a reminder, let me add that patch 2.1 will be made available on December 5 - which is the same day as the debut of Cyberpunk 2077: Ultimate Edition - on PC, PS5 and XSX/S.
