CD Projekt Red has announced the update for Cyberpunk 2077 Patch 1.5. The update is released for PC, Stadia, and Consoles, and for those who already own a copy of the game on last-gen consoles, the update has a size of 41GB and is free.
In the new generation, the game will receive support for Ray Tracing, dynamic 4K resolution, fast loading, visual and technical improvements. There will also be support for DualSense on PlayStation 5 with haptic feedback and adaptive triggers.
It also brings several important changes, such as a completely reworked skill tree to be simpler and more intuitive, a new progression system and improved artificial intelligence, as well as new skills like being able to throw knives.
Another interesting novelty is the possibility to buy apartments and change the decor. Another highly requested feature by players will also be added: changing the character’s physical appearance. Check out below some of the most notable changes coming in this update.
