CD Projekt Red has dropped another update for Cyberpunk 2077, bringing minor bug fixes and gameplay improvements. More importantly, the original wet effects are back in the game, which were accidentally removed in the previous patch.
The new patch 1.31 for Cyberpunk is already available for download on PC, consoles and Stadia. PC version update is around 800MB in size and differs slightly from other platform to platform.
After the release of the major patch 1.3 a month ago, Cyberpunk was hit with a series of nasty bugs with its free DLC, and this is hopefully the update to clean up any new issues since then. You can expect improvements such as adjustments to the speed of stealth detection of enemies depending on the difficulty of the game, removing an annoying bug where V gets stuck in a falling animation when crashing a motorcycle , several quests and fixes for missing descriptions, a fix for the issue that prevented players from claiming in-game registration rewards, and so on.
Another notable improvement is the GPU memory optimization tied to PlayStation on Sony consoles, however, there aren’t many details on how these changes will work. Finally, the CDPR fixed an issue where the roads after rain in Night City did not appear wet, which often occurs in the game after patch 1.3. According to the developers, the bug emerged as a result of ongoing work on the wet surface system, and in update 1.31, wet surfaces should be more detailed than ever. You can find the full changelog on the official website of the game.
Cyberpunk 2077 occupies CDPR, with around 40% of the company’s employees currently working on post-launch fixes – the number includes staff involved in the next next-gen upgrade for the title, currently slated for a release end of 2021.
However, even after all the studio’s efforts, things didn’t go very well for the project, as there are still a lot of bugs left in the game. Textures still appear for NPCs and the environments around them, even on a PS4 Pro, while some gamers have reported poorer PC performance after recent updates, and the game continues to crash on machines with older processors.
