Cyberpunk 2077 finally got the feature I crave most in every open world game: public transportation. Update 2.1, due out next week, adds a fully-functioning metro system of the kind we saw in Cyberpunk 2077’s 2018 cinematic trailer — as well as new hangouts with your romantic friends, recurring car races, and new accessibility settings.
If you try to use any of the metro stations in Cyberpunk 2077 as they stand now, you’ll find a fast travel point at best. After update 2.1, there will be 19 accessible stations where you can board the train and then sit with other passengers to watch the Night City pass by your window. This is what I love, whether it’s taxis in Grand Theft Auto 4 or horse-drawn carriages in Skyrim, and I’m excited to do it more. CDPR also says they don’t want to spoil too much about the Metro experience, which suggests there may be more details than I can describe here.
Update 2.1 is surprisingly packed: you can now listen to the radio while walking (or on the subway); You can throw wheelies at motorcycles and use throwing knives as weapons while driving; Many boss fights have been revised, including Adam Smasher’s. There are also new hangouts with romantic partners, replayable car races, and dynamic car chases with gangs if you piss them off.
CD Projekt Red released Major Update 2.0 shortly before the Phantom Liberty expansion, which completely revised its progression systems including perks and skills, as well as adding a proper police response system, combat vehicles and much more. It was expected to be the last major update as CDPR moves on to work on The Witcher 4 and on pre-production for Cyberpunk 2, but I’m glad the tweaks and additions are continuing for 2077 for now.
Update 2.1 will be released on December 5th.
