Once upon a time there was a game. A game that gave rise to endless controversies and debates. Once upon a time there was a game. Almost three years have passed since that moment, three years in which the CD Projekt RED team rolled up their sleeves and has worked hard to resurrect from its ashes what for a long time was one of the most anticipated titles of all time. And so it was because Cyberpunk 2077 Update 2.0 is now available for download and promises to make the most of V’s adventures in that Night City that we all know well between constant support for the game and exciting new stories like that of the highly successful Edgerunners.
Before starting, a necessary clarification must be made. Cyberpunk 2077 update 2.0 will necessarily require an SSD, thus putting an end to the PS4 and Xbox One versions of the title and requiring some updates to our PCs. Having made this fundamental aspect of the highly anticipated update clear, revolutionizing Night City remains rather simple. As for console owners, it will be enough to have the next-gen version of the title installed on yours PlayStation 5 o Xbox Series X|S and the download will start automatically. Change the situation on PC where it will be necessary to uninstall the game from your hard disks to reinstall it later on the SSD where it will finally be possible to download the update.
On PC you will also need to pay particular attention also to the mods. Given the many significant changes made, CD Projekt RED recommends uninstalling all pre-20 mods. until these are updated by the community. This is because outdated mods could degrade the experience in many ways and, in some situations, cause critical errors.
But now let’s move on to the interesting part. First of all, the combat system certainly benefits from the improvements in the new update. For starters now V will have to be very careful about his actions as the NCPD returns more threatening than ever. The police will now be much more reactive, they will patrol the streets, they will chase criminals. Furthermore, based on one’s “wanted level” various units will be deployed, until Max-Tac intervenes.
However, V will not be completely defenseless. To escape from the police you can now rely on a revised guidance system. The main novelty is certainly the introduction of combat on board vehicles. While driving it will now be possible to use guns, machine guns and healing items. Some vehicles also mount fixed weapons. While riding motorbikes it is possible to resort to hand-to-hand combat. Vehicles, old and new, will now have varying degrees of resistance and will be attackable via quick hacking.
Street fighting has also been completely overhauled. With the 2.0 update, enemy AI is completely improved, with enemies paying particular attention to every encounter. More reactive and aggressive, these will give V a hard time, which on the other hand will be able to Count on several new weapons and abilities. Cyberware, skills and talents have been completely revised and will allow you to experiment with interesting new features, making the gaming experience more varied than ever.
These These are just a few of the many changes coming with Update 2.0 of Cyberpunk 2077. Everything, every single element changed points out how CD Projekt RED cares about this universe and is intent on showing all its true potential. So Choom, happy new Day One!
