As promised, Cyberpunk 2077’s first big update is now available for PCs, consoles, and Stadia. According to the release notes, it’s essentially a primer for future updates, but it also addresses memory usage and crash issues.

Cyberpunk 2077 had a turbulent launch, to say the least, but earlier in January 2021, the game’s developer, CD Projekt Red, announced it would release a big update by end of the month. That software patch has finally arrived, and it’s loaded with bug fixes for the rocky title.

In a tweet, developer CD Projekt Red said the update “lays the groundwork” for future patches, as well:

In our review of the game, we found Cyberpunk 2077 on consoles is riddled with bugs and performs rather badly on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. But, in our experience on the PS4 Pro, we found few issues and, in fact, really enjoyed the game and its concept. But it is a better experience on next-gen consoles. More importantly, there’s an incredible game lurking behind everything.

We, therefore, always had confidence that, after some patches, it could be the game everyone hoped for – even on Xbox Series X/S and PS5.

The 1.1 patch comes more than a month after Cyberpunk 2077’s launch. CD Projekt Red has already announced a second patch will follow, with the studio calling it a “larger, more significant update” coming “in the weeks after” patch 1.1.

The developer is also working on a free optimisation update for the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X. That’s coming later in the year.
