CD PROJEKT RED’s Cyberpunk 2077 will be receiving a brand new, free update introducing hotly anticipated gameplay elements. The latest REDstreams presented details regarding the new features coming with Update 2.1, which releases on December 5th for Xbox Series X|S, PlayStation 5, and PC.
- A brand-new, free update is coming to Cyberpunk 2077.
- During the most recent REDstreams, developers Paweł Sasko and Monika Janowska discussed new features, including a fully functional metro, replayable car races, boss fight improvements, accessibility features, and more.
- The update will become available to players on December 5th, the same day as the release of Cyberpunk 2077: Ultimate Edition.
With Cyberpunk 2077’s Update 2.1, players can expect several exciting additions to the range of experiences Night City already offers. Chief among them is a city-wide fully functional NCART metro system, offering a more relaxed way of getting about the most dangerous megalopolis of the dark future — and taking in the beautiful views along the way. Radioport, another new feature, lets players enjoy the eclectic musical vibes of Cyberpunk 2077’s selection of radio stations beyond the confines of their vehicle of choice — for example, during a peaceful walk through the city center. New hangouts with romantic partners are also available to partake in, as following Update 2.1 players will be able to invite their in-game significant other to enjoy some quality time together in V’s apartment.
The latest REDstreams, hosted by Senior Community Managers Alicja Kozera and Amela Kołat, premiered December 1st on Twitch and featured CD PROJEKT RED Producer Monika Janowska and Quest Director Paweł Sasko, who shared additional details about the upcoming free update to Cyberpunk 2077.
Further new features include additional chases and replayable car races — the latter was only available as a finite set of missions, but now can be replayed to gain further rewards and discounts on the Autofixer website, through which players purchase cars. The developers also prepared a series of improvements to boss fights, including the late-game Adam Smasher fight. Smasher’s AI has been improved and he’s now equipped with a Sandevistan, as seen in the award-winning anime Cyberpunk: Edgerunners.
Also coming with the new update are the Porsche 911 Cabriolet, new motorcycles, upgraded motorcycle handling and new riding mechanics, new secrets to discover, and more, including a healthy dose of technical improvements and accessibility features for players to choose from — such as a larger interface font and the ability to turn off the timer in the Breach Protocol minigame.
Ahead of the release of Update 2.1, players can discover more of Night City’s history with the Night City Archives, a video series that delves into the complex past and dark future of the city.
Cyberpunk 2077’s Update 2.1 is coming to Xbox Series X|S, PlayStation 5, and PC on December 5th. It’ll be available for free to all existing and future owners of the game, including those who purchase the upcoming Cyberpunk 2077: Ultimate Edition, featuring both the base game and the Phantom Liberty expansion. The physical edition of the game will be available starting December 5th in select territories.
