CD Projekt Red has released a massive update 2.0 for their game Cyberpunk 2077, which aims to revitalize Night City and address the game’s biggest flaws. The update brings significant changes to gameplay mechanics, perks, cyberware, armor, and the police system.
One of the major issues players had with Cyberpunk 2077 was the underwhelming perk system. Many choices in the perk trees only offered minor stat buffs, making it uninteresting and discouraging experimentation. However, with update 2.0, CD Projekt Red has completely revised the perk system. They have introduced perks that add new mechanics, such as slow-motion pistol reloads and throwing enemies with Gorilla Arms. These changes allow players to play as different character archetypes in more thrilling and unique ways. Furthermore, the update makes respeccing free and unlimited, eliminating the previous expensive and tedious process.
In addition to the revamped perk system, update 2.0 also brings improvements to cyberware, armor, and the police system. Players can now wear any fashion they desire without sacrificing the best buffs available. Tanking shotgun rounds while wearing a mini-dress might not make perfect sense, but it aligns with the Rule of Cool in cyberpunk fiction. The police system has also received a complete overhaul, addressing the issue of police spawning at the player’s location even without witnesses. Crime detection and police assaults now feel more authentic and believable, enhancing the overall immersion of the game.
The 2.0 update also introduces quality of life changes, improvements to vehicular combat, and a new skill system that improves with use. These changes enhance the gameplay experience, making navigation and combat more rewarding than ever before.
CD Projekt Red’s efforts to fix the game’s flaws are evident in update 2.0. While some of these features should have been included since the game’s launch, players now have a reason to revisit Night City and experience the game in its improved state. The update breathes new life into Cyberpunk 2077, finally doing justice to the cyberpunk genre.
Cyberpunk 2077: Phantom Liberty, the upcoming DLC, is set to release on September 26th for PC, PlayStation 5, and Xbox Series X/S. Players can look forward to new story content, missions, and locations alongside the improvements brought by update 2.0.
Overall, with the massive update 2.0, CD Projekt Red has delivered on their promise to revitalize Cyberpunk 2077 and make Night City a more immersive and enjoyable experience for players. The game now offers unique and powerful character builds, improved mechanics, and a more authentic police system. Players have the opportunity to delve back into the world of Cyberpunk 2077 and fully embrace the game’s bright future.
