As for Patch 1.5, a massive update (around 50GB) is already available for download on all target platforms. A full list of changes can be found here on the official Cyberpunk 2077 website.

The authors revised perks, economy and balance, improved enemy AI in battle and the driving system, added a panic mode for NPCs (they now react more actively to user actions) and the ability to switch to a stage, and much more.

Additionally, Update 1.5 introduces additional content for Cyberpunk 2077 (free on all platforms):

  • the ability to rent apartments and equip a standard apartment (in Megatower H10), as well as receive temporary bonuses for some activities in the apartment (shower, go to bed, make coffee);
  • the ability to change appearance (hairstyle, makeup, piercing, etc.) through a mirror in an apartment or shelter;
  • new makeup and hairstyle options in the character editor;
  • new merchandise (guns, scopes, accessories, muzzle brakes) in Wilson’s Second Amendment shop;
  • new photo mode poses (including for Johnny Silverhand).

Finally, with the premiere of the patch on current-gen consoles, a free trial version of Cyberpunk 2077 appeared. It allows you to spend 5 hours in the game and transfer progress to the paid edition.

In addition, as part of the broadcast, the developers presented half-hour videos with demonstrations of Cyberpunk 2077 gameplay on PS5 and Xbox Series X. Both videos are available in the playlist above.

Cyberpunk 2077 was released in December 2020 on PC (Steam, GOG, EGS), PS4, Xbox One and Google Stadia. At the beginning, the project was criticized for sloppy technical execution (especially on consoles) – they are still correcting the situation to this day.
