Let’s face it: the preliminary launch of Cyberpunk 2077 was a mushy launch if we’re being beneficiant. Before CD Projekt RED dropped a new-gen console rework, the game was lambasted for being borderline unplayable even after joint-CEO Adam Kacinski mentioned the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One titles ran “surprisingly well,” an odd, if generic, response that didn’t encourage confidence.

Well, that obscene deluge of rage is simply placid water underneath the bridge now; the quantity of individuals enjoying the would-be Keanu Reeves courting simulator (if there was a God) is bigger than it has been in a 12 months.

For a game whose motto is “style is everything in Night City,” the beauty choice was unhappy as heck. Patch 1.5 is the polished Cyberpunk 2077 CDPR meant all alongside. The update dropped this week, and is a a lot wanted overhaul of the perk tree, AI (sans old-gen for some purpose), and a particular improve to fundamental high quality of life stuff like altering hair and make-up.

This facelift have to be interesting, as a result of the concurrent participant chart is lighting up like a Christmas Tree; based mostly on present Steam knowledge, the game has not executed this properly since February 2021. Despite the patch being well-received, it needs to be famous this quantity is nowhere close to the record-breaking peak we witnessed at launch. While 1,054,388 is the concurrent participant document for Cyberpunk 2077, it fell to round 50,000 one month after launch. The quantity since patch 1.5 dropped is sitting at just below 50,000 as soon as once more, which continues to be spectacular knowledge for a game that was buried underneath a large ‘crunch’ scandal and has been kind of drifting alongside since 2021.

According to the official Cyberpunk Twitter, some individuals have been experiencing a problem with the PlayStation 4 disc model of the game after putting in the patch, however the subject has since been resolved. Cyberpunk 2077 patch 1.5 is out there for PC, Xbox Series X/S, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and Stadia.
