After spending time on the promised debut of Cyberpunk 2077 on current generation platforms, CD Projekt Red announced via stream and on Twitter Switch to PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X | S in a brand new patch coming out today. That update not only brings the game to current consoles, but it also comes with a number of bug fixes, improvements, and lots of new free DLC to sweeten the deal.
When it comes landed on the current generation console, there are a number of changes such as the addition of ray tracing on shadows, a new graphics mode for the console, and native achievement support. Naturally, there is support for 4K and 60fps rates promised (except for the Xbox Series S, which has its own default settings). There are various improvements to the visuals, performance, rendering and spatial audio support on the PS5 and even Spanish dubbing for the Americas.
Player on all platforms can enjoy New and additional content. These include the introduction of apartments. You can customize V’s starting apartments and even rent apartments when you find them in the Night City. All available apartments are open to you if you pay a one time fee per apartment. They are more than just a place to hide or sleep, as you can get a lot of incentives for doing things in the apartment. Sleep, get Rested and you will get +20% skill XP. Make some coffee and get energized for an hour. Take a shower and gain Refresh, which allows you to recover health during combat, up to 60% of max. There are others to help you too. Another new advantage of apartments (and hideouts) is the ability to change your appearance using mirrors while indoors.
Improvements cover all aspects of the game, with rebalancing of gameplay, economy, perks, and rewards. You will see better loot and difficulty tweaking. The AI also gets some upgrades and changes to make things come to life, like in crowd reactions.
The patch notes are very extensive and even these, CDPR says, don’t even cover everything. They seem to have heard all the responses as they both load the game on current platforms and strengthen the entire foundation and gaming experience.
