CD Projekt Red has deployed another "hotfix" for Cyberpunk 2077 on PlayStation 4 (and PlayStation 5 via backwards compatibility). The update includes yet more bug fixes and performance improvements. It's a 15GB download.
Generally speaking, the game's been in a better state since patch 1.21, which seemed to ease crashing issues and make the open world run a bit more smoothly. It's still far from perfect, but the hope is that these additional improvements all add up.
In any case, you can find the full patch notes below.
Cyberpunk 2077 Update 1.22 Patch Notes
Quests & Open World
- The Metro: Memorial Park dataterm should now properly count towards the Frequent Flyer achievement.
- Fixed glitches in Johnny's appearance occurring after buying the Nomad car from Lana.
- Fixed an issue in Gig: Until Death Do Us Part where it was not possible to use the elevator.
- Fixed an issue in Epistrophy where the player could get trapped in the garage if they didn't follow the drone and ran into the control room instead.
- Added a retrofix for the issue we fixed in 1.21, where Takemura could get stuck in Japantown Docks in Down on the Street - for players who already experienced it before update 1.21 and continued playing until 1.22, Takemura will now teleport to Wakako's parlor.
- Fixed an issue preventing the player from opening the phone in the apartment at the beginning of New Dawn Fades.
- Fixed an issue where the player could become unable to use weapons and consumables after interacting with a maintenance panel in Riders on the Storm.
- Fixed various issues related to clipping in NPCs' clothes.
- Fixed an issue where subtitles were not properly aligned in the Arabic language version.
Stability and performance
- Various memory management improvements (reducing the number of crashes), and other optimizations.
- Improved GPU performance of skinning and cloth rendering.
- Memory management improvements on PlayStation 5.
Seeing as Cyberpunk 2077 has now been missing from the PlayStation Store for almost five months, we have to wonder whether Sony's keeping a close eye on all these updates. Hopefully we're not too far off from the game being reissued in a far more stable state.
