Things have been a little quiet on the Cyberpunk 2077 front, especially when it comes to updates, DLC, expansions, and the upcoming next-gen update for PS5 and Xbox Series X. The last big update, Patch 1.2, arrived in the tail end of March 2021 -- and now several months later we're getting our first look at Patch 1.3. And it's good stuff, but not all that game-changing.
As part of an in-universe Patch 1.3 Development Insight update, which takes on the form N54 News report, the big changes are related to Quality of Life things. Stuff that you'd think wouldn't have been all that hard to implement.
First up the mini-map is finally getting the "zoomed out" treatment so you can see upcoming GPS twists and turns. “With the new minimap system software update you are able to see more and navigate better," says Andrzej, a Programmer at CDPR. A welcome update, but also one that feels overdue.
Elsewhere a Quest update to how you choose the right person to "speak" to at the VIP “Dollhouse” is coming, which makes things clearer. Finally, perhaps the most handy update is the ability to easily respec Perks. “For our players, this feature will mean safer experimentation with builds. It is easily accessible and affordable for everyone, so there is no need to hesitate while investing in particular perks,” says Katarína, Gameplay Designer at CDPR.
But, being a major Patch there will be more on the table with CD Projekt Red hosting stream via Twitch later tonight at around 2am AEST to talk about what's in store and potentially reveal what the first bits of DLC will entail. Based on the slow roll-out of updates odds are there will be a substantial Patch arriving in time with the next-gen update to the game -- which would make a lot of sense. Have new content and reworked systems launching alongside the PS5 and Xbox Series X versions.
