Late last week, CD Projekt released the first big patch for Cyberpunk 2077. It was meant to fix bugs and improve stability, but it ended up introducing a game-breaking bug. Today, a hotfix was released to remove it.
Hotfix 1.1 is available for PC, consoles, and Stadia versions of the game. The main reason for applying it is to fix the Down on the Street quest bug, which involved the player listening to a call from the character Takemura. However, with Patch 1.1 installed, Takemura just stares and doesn’t say anything, meaning there’s no way to progress past the mission without reverting to an earlier save game.
As well as making Takemura vocal again, the hotfix restores item randomization to its previous state. It’s not all good news, though. The hotfix notes that a “save/load loot exploit will be investigated further,” but that sounds like a bug CD Projekt could solve in a future patch rather than another hotfix. It all depends on the severity of the exploit.
Meanwhile, if you need a break from actually playing the game, yesterday CD Projekt rolled out official mod support. Two tools are available so far, called ArchiveDump and TweakDump, allowing modders to access game data archives and game settings binaries. It shouldn’t take long for some interesting new mods to appear.
