The latest patch for Cyberpunk 2077 on PS5 brings adjustments and bug fixes to increase game performance and enhance in-game elements.

Cyberpunk 2077 Rolls Out Patch 2.02 on PS5

Cyberpunk 2077, the action RPG from developer CD Projekt Red, has released its latest patch, 2.02, for PlayStation 5. While it may be deemed a 'minor' patch compared to its vast predecessor, patch 2.0, it still packs a punch with significant gameplay refinements and bug fixes.

Some of the key updates in this patch address time limitations within the vehicle courier missions, allowing for a more balanced gameplay experience. The update also modifies the efficiency of various weapon types leading to a more challenging and immersive experience. Even the Malorian Arms, Johnny's weapon of choice known for its exhilarating gameplay, has been boosted in terms of recoil and damage output, adding an extra layer of fun to the gaming experience.

In addition to the gameplay adjustments, the patch integrates various optimisations, performance enhancements, and crash fixes bolstering the already compelling gaming experience. Patch 2.02 even fixes minor glitches such as animation lags, lighting imbalances, and collision issues in certain locations that previously caused players to become trapped.

For players starting anew and skipping straight to Phantom Liberty, any simulated completed quests will now appear in the Journal. Other notable fixes include an update to the Quadra Sport R-7 "Vigilante"'s availability for purchase on the Autofixer website, and removal of roadblocks at Dogtown gates, enabling player entry.

Moreover, the update has addressed an array of quest-specific issues to provide smoother gameplay progression. For instance, it has fixed a problem where it was impossible to collect Jackie's guns from the El Coyote Cojo altar under certain circumstances. The patch also resolves several issues with quest progression, including errors with objectives, missing car spawns, and inaccessibility of certain areas.

In response to player feedback, weapon stats have been rebalanced, and crafting specifications for iconic weapons will now disappear after crafting the item. To the delight of strategy-centered players, the damage mechanism for bullets penetrating glass and the handling of the Tier 5 Skill Shards have been adjusted to prevent easy acquisitions early in the game.

To maintain a cheat-free game environment, the Bait quickhack has been disabled on enemies at area boundaries where they shouldn't be venturing. Other minor fixes, such as crowd NPCs clipping through vehicles and certain objective-related issues, have also been addressed.

On the PC-specific side of things, the update resolves the mismatching or corruption of scripts caused by outdated mods or file corruption during update/installation. Conversely, on consoles, the saving process has been refined to prevent overwriting saves and mitigating save corruption.

In addition to gameplay upgrades, various optimizations have been introduced for smoother performance and fewer crashes. A patch has been applied to fix an issue where achievements or trophies could unlock, even when the criteria were not met. The patch also addresses some sound and visual glitches to enhance the overall gaming experience.

Despite being labeled as a minor patch compared to its significant predecessor, patch 2.0, it is undeniable that Cyberpunk 2077's update 2.02 has brought numerous essential gameplay refinements, bug corrections, and performance improvements. However, it remains to be seen how gamers worldwide will respond to these changes. With these adjustments, it's time to take the Malorian for a rejuvenated spin and see firsthand what the update has in store. Players can now experience enhanced gameplay, smoother progression, and an overall improvement in the gaming world of Cyberpunk 2077 on PS5.
