It’s been quite a while since CD Projekt Red released a major patch for Cyberpunk 2077. Patch 1.2 came out at the end of March, bringing with it a massive list of changes and performance tweaks. Today, the developer offered a glimpse at the game’s next update, patch 1.3. But for those hoping for anything substantial may be disappointed. The next patch for Cyberpunk 2077 fixes the awful GPS system, lowers the cost for respecing your character, and slightly changes an early main quest.
The aforementioned are what CD Projekt Red has showcased for patch 1.3. Outside of the very needed changes for the in-game GPS, the others don’t feel too substantial. Granted, there may be a lot more on the way. Patch 1.2 brought in hundreds upon hundreds of changes, coming in at a staggering 35 GB — about as much for an entire game or two.
Arguably, the highlight of the next Cyberpunk 2077 patch is the slightly updated GPS system. Prior to this, navigating the mean streets of Night City and its outside district was a pain in the ass. After the patch, you’ll no longer be centered in the in-game mini map once you enter a vehicle. Your position will get reset to near the bottom, allowing you more easily see what turns are coming up. In other words, after the patch you likely won’t be tearing past any turns or markers now that you can see them ahead of time.
Have you been to the Clouds district?
The next highlighted change slightly alters a main quest, Automatic Love. In this mission, V is tasked with going to the Clouds club, where you are matched with a doll based on their personality. The two dolls chosen are Skye and Angel, and the game only grants you a moment to look at their pictures and make a choice. For some, it was easy to forget who was who. Both of them having feminine names meant that sometimes the wrong choice got made. Patch 1.3, however, will keep their images on screen until you’re ready to choose.
With Clouds and an updated GPS out of the way, we can move to the final change highlighted for the patch: respecing cost. Prior to patch 1.3, respecing your chosen V in the game required to you buy a pricey Tabula e-Rasa card for 25,000 eurodollars from a local ripperdoc. The prior patch dropped the price from 100,000, which was clearly too damn much. However, patch 1.3 will allow you to respec your character straight from the menu for only 13,200 eurodollars.
CD Projekt Red will show off the new patch tomorrow during a livestream. It starts at noon ET on the developer’s Twitch channel.
