Cyberpunk 2077 is an ambitious sci-fi RPG that dominated gaming conversations up to its release, but was met with lukewarm reception due to its buggy, unfinished state. Nearly two years after its debut, Cyberpunk 2077 has evolved in innumerable ways following various post-launch patches and updates. That journey continues with the 1.6 patch update, releasing Tuesday to players with dozens of new features, quality-of-life-improvements, and bug fixes.

Cyberpunk 2077 players can look forward to a diverse array of enhancements in this update, which is headlined by its tie-ins to the upcoming Cyberpunk: Edgerunners anime, releasing on Netflix on Sept. 13, 2022. This crossover includes new secrets for players to discover across Night City, equipment and cosmetics, and Photo Mode features.
