While this site is dedicated to free speech, the following will not be tolerated: devolving a thread into unrelated political discussion, sockpuppeting (using multiple and/or bogus accounts), disrupting topics without contributing to them, and posting images that could get someone fired in the workplace (an external link is OK, but clearly mark it as Not Safe For Work, or NSFW). If you receive a warning, please take it seriously and either move on to another topic or steer the discussion back to its original RPG-related theme.

So, has anyone downloaded the 1.2 update, now that it's out?

From what I've heard, it's a HUGE laundry list of bug fixes, some of which are astonishing for having slid through quality testing the first time (assuming CDPR did any QA at all on this crap).

I've also heard CDPR is canceling any multiplayer projects for CP2077. My guess is that they'll work to clean up the worst of the bugs in the existing game, and call it a day. They're already hinting at a fourth Witcher game.

Bug fixes make it more likely I might pick up the game soon, but the cutting of multiplayer means I likely won't play it for all that long (IIRC, isn't the campaign relatively short for an open-world game?), so still undecided.

For a AAA franchise, the state the game was released in is nothing short than a complete disaster. Big corp keeps taking gamers for idiots with unfinished games, loot boxes, and micro transactions. I couldn’t believe this game was made by the same people who brought us Witcher 3. CDPR is just another publicly traded company now. Investors are the ones making the decisions, devs don’t have much of an opinion. That’s why Indie keeps gaining momentum.

Even investors know that releasing a crap-tier Early Access (at BEST) game as 'finished product' is a long-term losing proposition.

As I understand it, from the accounts I've read and seen, there was a major management reshuffle as well as a massive shift in the proposed direction of the game by said management. This is where having clear direction in a project shines; know what you're aiming for before you spend a dollar.

There was also a lawsuit by their investors claiming that management lied to them regarding the status of CP2077 all the way up until the release date.

I finished the game just a few minutes ago. Every quest. The last one was recovering Kerry Eurodyne's guitar. Which was a fun piece of chaos.

But it means I know the game inside and out now. Every quest until they put out the DLC I have known and played. So I can, at last, give my thoughts on the game.

If you like Cyberpunk? This game is for you. If you don't, give it a pass. This is a game that definitely is all about fanservice. This is a game definitely for fans. And nothing else.

After all the bugs and trouble in this game, I can say the PC version is a pretty much complete experience. It's a good game. And i do not at all regret my preorder of it.

Only one quest in the game was unpassable due to a bug. The rest was okay. But I figured out how to bypass the bugged quest. So at least the story could progress. And at this time, I have no idea if that quest has been repaired or not. But every other part of the game? It's solid. Definitely fun.

So in conclusion. If you are a genre fan. This game is for you. If you aren't, pass on it. Either way, no regrets.

One of my players locally has it. But has not spoken much about it. Is there any netrunning in the game? If yes. What is that aspect like?

From all I have heard they have been working to fix and improve things quite a bit. I really wish companies would stop setting deadlines and then panic rushing games out when that deadline comes up. Give a general projected timeline and update as needed if it needs extending or shortening.

Yes, there is netrunning in the game. But it is different than 2020 by a considerable degree. There are quick hacks you can do against realtime opponants, jacking in to access points and installing software, and actually diving into the net. All of these things are different experiences. But they bring a netrunner directly into the face of the player. Making them always a factor. You always worry about a netrunner being on the battlefield, messing with you in combat. You can quick hack opponants in combat too. Which really changes things up.

Most of the bugs are fixed. The next Major patch should improve things even more.

The Quick Hacks are so popular that players are doing their best to adapt them from Cyberpunk 2077 to Cyberpunk Red. They change the Netrunner experience that much.

Of course, we will get the official version once R. Talsorian puts out the Cyberpunk 2077 sourcebook.
