The developer has previously shared the highlights of the patch patch patch list for Cyberpunk 2077 2.01: there’s a lot to look forward to, that’s for sure.
CD Projekt has detailed the first patch for Cyberpunk 2077 since the sci-fi RPG’s big 2.0 update, which promises to fix a save file bug affecting PlayStation 5 players, among other things.
According to pre-release patch highlights just shared by the developer, the 2.01 update aims to stop instances of corrupt saves on PS5 by increasing the maximum save file size limit.
CD Projekt warns that this will not fix backups affected before the update. But it advises affected players to keep a working backup until 2.01 arrives (by re-downloading as a manual backup.)
Elsewhere in the update, CD Projekt promises performance improvements on both PCs and consoles, particularly in the Dogtown area. As well as a range of more specific enhancements. Among them is a particularly annoying (yet ridiculous) problem that causes V-k to “sink” through the elevator floor and fall to his doom when trying to reach the 42nd floor in Cyberpunk 2077’s The Heist mission – but only at low FPS.
See below for a complete list of announced fixes and improvements. CD Projekt stresses that these are only “highlights” of the issues addressed in the 2.01 update. Full details will be shared closer to release. When exactly that will be is unclear. For now, the developer only says the update will be released “soon” for Xbox Series X/S, PS5 and PC.
Highlights of the Cyberpunk 2077 2.01 update:
- The distorted effect caused by selecting a specific dialogue option when talking to Johnny at the end of Automatic Love will no longer persist on the screen.
- V will no longer die in The Heist by falling through the elevator when riding to the 42nd floor with low FPS.
- Fixed an issue where the UI could show controller inputs when playing with keyboard and mouse.
- Made it possible to properly switch to arms cyberware by cycling through weapons.
- Gig: Breaking News will be properly triggered after approaching the quest area.
- Vehicle radio volume will be adjusted so it’s not too quiet when compared to other sounds in the game.
- Addressed the issue of corrupted saves on PlayStation by increasing the maximum save file size limit. Note: this won’t fix the saves corrupted before the update. If you’re experiencing the issue, keep a working save (e.g. resave it as a manual save) till 2.01 arrives.
- Performance improvements for both PC and consoles, especially in the Dogtown area.
