[Update]: CD Projekt Red has announced a Cyberpunk 2077 expansion alongside a new spin-off game.

It took quite a while for Patch 1.5 to get here, but I'm happy to say that Cyberpunk 2077's biggest bug-fixing update has now finally arrived. Patch 1.5 brings with it a variety of visual improvements, better combat animations and AI behavior, along with new weapons and attachments to toy around with, as well as sweeping changes to many perks and items.

On the slightly less violent side of things, Patch 1.5 has also overhauled driving in order to make it less cumbersome, as well as improved AI reactions and pathfinding while driving. The same goes for the random NPCs you encounter on the street as they should now behave more realistically when threatened, get stuck or despawn less often, and hopefully act more like actual people rather than soulless automatons.

You can also expect to see a variety of improvements to the UI, including new options, tooltips and filters to help with map navigation. And in an effort to help deepen immersion, Patch 1.5 has extended romances with Panam, Kerry, River and Judy by adding a bunch of new messages and interactions.

Needless to say, Patch 1.5 has also brought in an absolute ton of bug fixes, balance tweaks and other minor additions. There are far too many of these to easily summarize, so if you're curious about just what Cyberpunk 2077's newest update has added or changed, you can find what you seek over at the official patch notes.

Once the next big update arrives, or CDPR finally updates their roadmap, I'll make sure to let you know. For now, however, have fun with the new and improved Cyberpunk 2077!
