Whereas mods may lengthen the lifespan of the sport (no less than till CDPR eventually adds multiplayer modes), it is best to keep away from utilizing them for now. It isn’t well worth the threat of a hacker taking on your system. The writer stated it’s going to roll out a repair as quickly as doable.
The difficulty is the newest in a notoriously long line of problems which have plagued Cyberpunk 2077. Final week, CDPR issued a hotfix for a game-breaking bug that it by chance launched in the previous major patch. The following large replace, which is claimed to be bigger and extra vital than the 1.1 patch, should arrive this month. Maybe then CDPR can flip its full consideration to the free DLC it plans to begin including early this yr.
