Cyberpunk 2077 Update 2.1 Patch Notes Revealed

    Adds metro system, partner hangouts, new bikes, and more.

    CD Projekt Red has revealed that Update 2.1 of Cyberpunk 2077 will go live tomorrow, December 5, at 12 PM CT/6 AM ET. The Cyberpunk 2077 Update 2.1 patch notes are now live and reveal all the new features that will be available.

    CDPR initially released Cyberpunk 2077 in 2020. Critics initially criticized it for its rushed release, game-breaking glitches, and failure to stay true to the game’s initial promise. However, CD Projekt Red recently released both Cyberpunk 2077: Phantom Liberty and Update 2.0. The recent expansion and patch have completely overhauled the game’s mechanics and brought it closer to the game’s initial promise.

    Cyberpunk 2077 Update 2.1 Patch Notes


    CD Projekt Red has officially announced that Update 2.1 of Cyberpunk 2077 will go live tomorrow at 12 PM CET/6 AM EDT/3 AM PDT. Last week, they officially revealed the update and teased some of its features. On December 4, CDPR officially posted the patch notes. The update includes the following new features:

    Patch Notes Highlights

    • V’s issue with their NCART City Pass is resolved and they can now travel between the 19 metro stations located throughout Night City on 5 different lines via fast travel or riding the train itself while gazing out the window and watching the world go by.
    • V will now be able to invite their love interest to spend some time together in any of the apartments. Hangouts are a repeatable, unlimited event that become available once the romance path with a given character has concluded.
    • You can now listen to the radio while on foot (or while riding the NCART train) using the new Radioport feature. Available while you explore, it switches seamlessly to car radio whenever you get in a vehicle and turns off when quest-specific music starts playing. It is now also possible to adjust the volume directly in the radio window.
    • Added replayable car races V can take part in after finishing The Beast in Me. Look for race flag icons on the map and win the races to get eddies and a discount for the Autofixer website. Additionally, we improved the racers’ AI to make them more competitive and made enhancements so that the whole experience is much more fun!
    • Sightseeing binoculars in various scenic spots have been added as another way to appreciate Night City’s vistas.

    Other Updates

    • V can now be pursued by gangs after taking an aggressive approach toward them during certain gigs and main quests.
    • Gigs that involve stealing and delivering a vehicle can now turn into a car chase and a combat sequence.
    • Decorative vendors spawned inside some kiosks are now functional. Please note that food stands are not impacted by this change.
    • It is now possible to sit at various bars in Night City and interact with the vendors.
    • Improved the boss fights with Yasha Ivanov, Boris Ribakov and Adam Smasher. Smasher will now be able to activate Sandevistan.
    • Opened the previously closed-off highway that spans Westbrook, Santo Domingo and Heywood.
    • It is now possible to lean while riding bikes. Use LShft/LCtrl on keyboard or Left Stick on a gamepad to make the rider lean – Up to lean forward, or Down to lean back. Leaning only changes your Center of Mass. Lean back and apply the gas to do a wheelie, lean forward and apply the brake to do an endo. Changing your Center of Mass changes how much traction you have at either end. Lean forward a little mid corner to induce oversteer, lean a little back to induce understeer. In the air, lean forward/backward to do flips, steer to do spins!

    Cyberpunk 2077 is available now on the PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X|S, and PC. The new Ultimate Edition will be available tomorrow.
