To celebrate the retail launch of the Ultimate Edition of Cyberpunk 2077 (which includes the base game, the Phantom Liberty expansion, and this patch), CD Projekt Red has announced Patch 2.1 for the base Cyberpunk 2077 game, which is free for all current owners.
The patch includes several additions to the game, most notably the inclusion of the fully simulated subway system that was seen in the game’s first trailer. There are five Metro lines in Night City and nineteen stations, which can either be fast-traveled between or actually ridden, a neat touch.
Other improvements include a carryable in-game radio that will allow V to listen to Night City’s radio stations even while on foot, some improvements to the game’s boss fights (including the notoriously easy final encounter), a bevy of new car-based content, and additional scenes with the game’s various love interests.
While the full details of the patch are not yet known (and CDPR has assured players that there’s still more in it), the notes will be revealed sometime before launch on December 5, 2023.
This content patch is a massive surprise to myself and many other players, as the 2.0 patch that arrived alongside Phantom Liberty was expected to be the game’s last before the development team moved on. Still, given that several of the issues I addressed in our review of Phantom Liberty have been resolved here, it’s definitely not unwelcome.
