Cyberpunk 2077 Patch 2.01 Fixes Busted Missions, Improves Radio Volume
Fresh off its 2.0 version and Phantom Liberty launch, Cyberpunk 2077 has received its 2.01 patch, which fixes bugs and improves performance.
Cyberpunk 2077's Patch 2.01 is here, and it's the first patch since the game's massive 2.0 update, which coincided with the launch of its major DLC Phantom Liberty. As the below patch notes show, 2.01 is overwhelmingly focused with fixing major and minor bugs, as well as improving performance across all platforms.
Some of the more notable bug fixes include one that could cause all traffic to disappear after completing the quest Moving Heat, several that outright broke specific missions like Balls to the Wall and Firestarter, as well as several issues related to the game's newly improved police system.
It also includes a few minor tweaks, such as making the vehicle radio volume significantly louder, as well as changes to Ukrainian localization. The performance improvements are particularly significant in the Dogtown area, and they apply to both PC and consoles.
In other Cyberpunk news, CD Projekt Red has said that the company is now full speed ahead of creating a sequel to the hit game after the release of 2.0 and Phantom Liberty, confirming that it's the end of the game's content life cycle. The core team behind this apparent Cyberpunk 2 is relocating to Boston as part of the dev cycle, though the office will continue to collaborate with other CD Projekt offices in Vancouver and Warsaw. GameSpot's Michael Higham gave the expansion a 10/10 in our Phantom Liberty review, calling the expansion "a thrilling and impactful experience that doesn't overstay its welcome."
