Cyberpunk 2077 was, without question, the biggest game released in 2020. And expectations no doubt were sky-high for CD Projekt’s futuristic open-world game… A bit too high perhaps, as the game was something of a disappointment at launch – it was plagued with glitches and bugs (some of which were game breaking), while performance on last-gen consoles was truly abysmal, making the game almost unplayable.
However, Polish developer CD Projekt Red has been releasing a steady stream of patches since launch, fixing most of the issues that plagued the game at launch. The game has been enjoying something of a renaissance of late too, with its player count on PC hitting a new record in 2022.
But it seems the game still has issues, evidence of this is the fact that CD Projekt Red released a massive patch for the game earlier this month. Aside from the fact this fixed glitches preventing the completion of many of the game’s quests under certain circumstances, CD Projekt has also patched unintended nudity in its sci-fi RPG.
This is not the first the Polish developer has had to do this – Cyberpunk 2077’s nudity glitches at launch are well-known: genitals and breasts could be seen in the game (this was not an intended feature) while characters riding motorcycles naked was also a common sight in the game’s futuristic Night City at release.
However, an update prior to the latest patch (patch 1.61, that is) had introduced another nudity glitch: this is because instead of sticking to the physical attributes players picked for their character at the start of the game, they could now change their character’s appearance at in-game doctor known as “ripperdocs”.
Amongst other things, those playing a female version of protagonist V could alter the size of their breasts, something which led to a nudity glitch, as customizing a character for bigger breasts led to these showing through clothing. An embarrassing thing for sure (especially for those playing Cyberpunk 2077 in front of others) as this unintended nudity might not be to everyone’s liking of course…
So this has been patched out in the latest update, which also fixed bugs that prevented the completion of quite a few in-game quests. An example of this is progress being blocked in one side quest (“Playing for Keeps”) which requires players to talk to a bartender, but couldn’t do so if they had previously engaged in combat inside the bar.
Aside from that, this latest Cyberpunk 2077 patch also adds visual improvements. NPCs or non-player characters carrying umbrellas is nice, but the addition of AMD’s FidelityFX super resolution technology to both the PC and console versions of the game means everything should be crisper and more beautiful both up close and far away in the game’s Night City.
Cyberpunk 2077, though, could really come into its own next year, as CD Projekt Red is now working on the Phantom Liberty expansion for the game. Also, more updates for the game are likely to arrive in the near future, even if it’s unlikely we’ll see more unintended nudity in Cybepunk 2077 going forward though…
