We already knew that the patch would weigh in at about 44GB, which is very hefty for a day one update. "Passing certification, or 'going gold', means the game is ready, can be completed, and has all content in it. But it doesn't mean stop working on it and raising the quality bar," explained the studio. "We feel we have an amazing game on our hands and are willing to make every decision, even the hardest ones, if it ultimately leads to you getting a video game you'll fall in love with."
Reviews are out for the PC version of Cyberpunk 2077, and there are another eight versions of the game yet to roll out. Eesh. With a game that rivals The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt in scale and complexity, boasting more than a thousand NPCs following their own daily routines around a densely populated city, there's bound to be bugs that have slipped through the cracks.
"So, in terms of bugs, we are all aware of them," said Adam Kicinski, CEO of CD Projekt Red. "Of course, such a big game can't be just bug-free. That's kind of obvious, but we believe that the level will be as low as to let gamers not see them. And fortunately, some bugs were caused by general features and many of them are already fixed. So, what gamers will get will be different and what viewers will get in this final review is better than what previewers got."
It turns out what players will get may be better than what reviewers got, according to these tidbits about the day one console patch. "A bunch of issues reviewers encountered (and reported) have been fixed already, some more are part of the update," said Fabian Mario Döhla, who acts in a PR and social media role for CD Projekt Red. "It is a different game with console update, yes," he replied to a player asking whether what we've seen and heard so far of Cyberpunk 2077 is an older build.
Well, this is music to the ears of console players, but they'll have to set aside time to download and install the additions and changes to the game. Cyberpunk 2077 releases tomorrow for PC, Stadia, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One, with next-gen versions on their way in 2021.
