by | Feb 19, 2022 | Cyberpunk 2077, News

Patch 1.5 has landed for Cyberpunk 2077 promising tons of bug fixes and multiple free DLC offerings.

This week Cyberpunk 2077 released its long-awaited Next Generation Console Update and its massive Update 1.5 Patch, hoping to get players to return to the troubled title, or even get new players to try it out for the first time with a new Free Trial Offer.

Next Generation Update

Patch 1.5 for Cyberpunk 2077 contains the next-generation update, which will allow Cyberpunk 2077 to take advantage of the additional power of the Xbox Series X|S and PlayStation®5 hardware. This includes:

  • Added ray-traced local light shadows.
  • Implemented native achievement support on next-gen consoles. Note that as the next-gen version has a different SKU, PlayStation trophies obtained in backward compatibility will not be transferred. Xbox achievements will automatically appear on the new version using the Smart Delivery feature.
  • Introduced two graphics modes on PlayStation®5 and Xbox Series X: Performance Mode & Ray-Tracing Mode.

New Apartments

Patch 1.5 also introduces new Apartments for rent (with a one-time fee). These can be encountered in Night City or through the EZEstates website when accessed through the computer in V’s Megabuilding H10 apartment. They become available after completing the Playing for Time quest. It’s possible to rent all apartments at the same time and all apartments share the same stash.

Available apartments:

  • Northside, Watson (€$5,000)
  • Japantown, Westbrook (€$15,000)
  • The Glen, Heywood (€$40,000)
  • Corpo Plaza, City Center (€$55,000)

Change V’s Appearance

You can now change certain features of your appearance (such as hair, makeup, piercing, etc.) when using the mirror in any of your apartments and safehouses. It’s free and you can do it as often as you like. Character customization also includes more makeup and hair color options. These options are even available when starting a new character!

Much More!

Many more improvements are actually included in this patch as well including improved Crowd and Driving AI, improved Combat AI, improved abilities, passives and more. Check out the full list of changes here.
