The Cyberpunk 2077 developer CD Projekt Red has released Hotfix 1.05 for Xbox and PlayStation consoles with a long list of fixes and optimizations. The game has been on the news for all the wrong reasons since its launch earlier this month. It’s rife with bugs on both PC and consoles, especially last generation consoles, but the Projekt Red developer CD has worked to improve the experience. In addition, CD Projekt has released an update on its refund process and announced that it will offer out-of-pocket refunds if necessary. Microsoft has also started offering refunds to people who bought Cyberpunk 2077 in its store after initially declining them.
Starting with hotfix 1.05, which is available for Xbox and PlayStation players, it will fix many bugs related to individual missions, such as: B. the disappearance of non-player characters (NPCs), incorrect geometry, mechanics and more. There are also some improvements to the gameplay, including improved response times for NPCs taking cover. Visual fixes include T-Posing NPCs, changes to HDR, and UI overlap issues, among others. Cyberpunk 2077 also improves performance and stability.
According to CD Projekt Red, the hotfix for PC players will be released shortly.
Sony recently removed Cyberpunk 2077 (Xbox Series X Review | PS4 Review) from its PlayStation Store and is offering a full refund to all players who purchased the game through the PS Store. Now the developers have released an update on retail refunds via a tweet stating that they will refund players out of their own pocket if necessary to ensure players have a satisfying experience. Similarly, Microsoft is now also offering refunds to players who purchased the game from the Microsoft Store. It didn’t delist the game like Sony did, however. Xbox players can request a refund here.
Additionally, Microsoft Store added a warning that said, “Users may experience performance issues playing this game on Xbox One consoles until this game is updated.”
Consoles aside, Cyberpunk 2077 players at Stadia reportedly had issues running the game in 4K resolution and were stuck at 1080p despite having Stadia Pro. Playing Cyberpunk 2077 in Stadia is an easier and more satisfying alternative to playing on last generation consoles or on low power PCs. Gamers seem to be overloading Google’s servers, which is why not all Stadia Pro users can play in 4K. However, there seems to be a workaround for this that is shared by a user on the Stadia community forum. Using a VPN to run Stadia in a browser also seems to solve the problem, according to users.
