The new patch 1.52 for Cyberpunk 2077 once again delivers plenty of bug fixes, but also brings some useful convenience features.

Cyberpunk 2077 has received a new update. The patch 1.52 is by far not as extensive as previous updates, but still fixes quite a few bugs and even has some comfort improvements in store.

As usual, we present some highlights of the new software patch below. If you would like to read the complete patch notes, you can find them on page 2 of this article.

All info on patch 1.52 for Cyberpunk 2077

When will Patch 1.52 be released? The new update will be released on 22 March 2022 and is currently being rolled out to all platforms. As always, the patch will automatically download and install on Steam and GOG unless you have disabled this feature.

How big is Patch 1.52? On GOG, the update adds 1.22 GB. We’ll post the file size for Steam as soon as we can find out.

What is changing? Among the highlights of the new update are two useful bug fixes and a comfort improvement:

No more duplicate purchases for makeovers: Since the giant patch 1.5, you can buy different makeovers, quasi paint coats, for V’s original flat. However, if you weren’t careful, you could even buy the same makeover again, which unnecessarily burdened your wallet. This error has been corrected.

The visual design of your flat is just one of thousands of changes that found their way into Cyberpunk 2077 with the huge update 1.5 a few weeks ago.

Ey man, where’s my car? Until now, it could happen that the vehicles you requested did not spawn near you, but somewhere in the middle of nowhere. This has also been changed, and from now on the cars will appear directly at your location.

Fixer rewards will be marked in the Stash: A plus of comfort awaits you in the Stash. When this stash inside your flat is almost bursting at the seams anyway, it can be really tricky to see the rewards for Fixer jobs at a glance. Thanks to Patch 1.52, Fixer Rewards are now visually marked in the Stash.

What about the technology?
Meanwhile, Cyberpunk 2077 runs extremely stable on both PC and the current console generation. This is also reflected in the patch notes, because technical improvements are quite rare, at least for our home computer.

Apart from some fixed animations, missing or misplaced objects and minor HUD optimisations, nothing has changed in technical terms.

So, what’s the best way to end a small but nice article about a new Cyberpunk patch? With a treat for the ears, of course!
