CD Projekt Shares Insights on Improvements in Cyberpunk 2077 Patch 1.3

After months of silence, CD Projekt Red has finally provided an update on the upcoming Patch 1.3 for Cyberpunk 2077. This major patch is expected to arrive soon, bringing new features and improvements to the game. Cyberpunk 2077 will also receive its first downloadable content (DLC) in the near future, which will expand the game's content after its release in December 2020. Because of bugs and glitches, Cyberpunk 2077 did not have a great start in terms of player satisfaction.

After years of anticipation and several delays, Cyberpunk 2077 was finally released in December 2020 on PC and consoles (both old and new). When players got to play the game on their respective hardware in the following weeks, the response was largely negative, as the game had a slew of issues, particularly on the Xbox One and PlayStation 4. Over the next few months, developer CD Projekt Red released a number of patches and hotfixes in an attempt to improve the game's performance, which it did to some extent.

Following the release of Patch 1.23 in June, fans have been eagerly anticipating the release of the next patch, which is expected to arrive soon. Some of the changes coming to Cyberpunk 2077 with Patch 1.3 are detailed in the latest "What's New In Night City?" post on the game's official website. Players will now be able to see more of the map during in-game GPS navigation, which should help them better assess upcoming turns.

Furthermore, the game's official Twitter account posted a short clip as a prelude to its upcoming REDstreams livestream on Twitch where it will talk about the changes that Patch 1.3 will bring to Cyberpunk 2077 and also about the first DLC coming to the game. 

On Twitch, the stream will begin at 6 p.m. CEST (9:30 p.m. IST) on August 17. Back in January, the developer revealed a timeline for upcoming fixes and DLCs, and the free DLCs were scheduled for much earlier in the year. However, the company was hit by a cyberattack in February that compromised its internal systems and caused significant delays in its planned content timelines. The developer appears to be getting back on track, though the exact release date for Patch 1.3 has yet to be announced.
