On PC, it almost needs 34 gigabytes to install CD Projekt RED‘s game’s newest update, and the Poles tried to improve the console performance as well. (On consoles, it’s 40+!)
The patch is already available on PC and consoles (with the Google Stadia update scheduled to arrive later this week), CD Projekt RED announced on Twitter. The patch notes are quite lengthy, but we will quote the console-specific updates, as the performance was the worst on them. „Fixed an issue on PlayStation 4 where items couldn’t be dropped from the backpack as they would always reappear back in the inventory.
