CD Projekt Red has revealed more about Cyberpunk 2077’s upcoming 1.3 update, including the game’s first DLC in the form of free cosmetic content. In addition, gameplay adjustments will be made, such as an improved minimap.
One of the most important changes is that the minimap zooms in and out better while driving, according to the patch notes. While driving, the minimap should now be more zoomed out, making it easier to navigate. In addition, there will be a button in the skill tree to redistribute perk points. The number of slots for autosaves and quicksaves is also increased to twenty and ten respectively.
After installing the update, enemies will notice the player less quickly or faster, depending on the difficulty level set. Enemies on Easy and Normal will notice the player less quickly, while enemies on Very Hard will notice the player more quickly. On this last difficulty, enemies will also be more aggressive when looking for the player.
CD Projekt Red also brings additional content to the game in the form of free DLC for the first time. It involves two coats, a vehicle and an alternate appearance for Johnny Silverhand. These extras become available after the player reaches certain points in the storyline. The developer plans to release more of this type of DLC in the future.
Free DLC has been promised to players for some time, but the developer says improvements in streaming and memory management have now been made that make such DLC possible. A release date for the 1.3 update has not yet been announced.
