Cyberpunk 2077 developer CD Projekt Red has released Hotfix 1.05 for Xbox and PlayStation consoles with a long list of fixes and optimisations. The game has consistently been in the news for all of the unsuitable reasons ever since its launch earlier this month. It is riddled with bugs on both PC and consoles, particularly final generation consoles, but developer CD Projekt Red has been working to enhance the experience. Additionally, CD Projekt has also shared an update on its refund process and said it’ll offer refunds out of its own pocket whether needed. Microsoft has also started offering refunds to those who purchased Cyberpunk 2077 from its store, after to begin with denying them.

Starting with Hotfix 1.05, which is live for Xbox and PlayStation players, it fixes numerous individual missions-related bugs like Non-Player Characters (NPCs) disappearing, fallacious geometry, mechanics, and more. There are some gameplay improvements as mannered, including improved reaction times of NPCs taking cover. Visual bug fixes include T-posing NPCs, changes to HDR, and UI overlap issues among others.

The Hotfix for PC players will be released soon, according to CD Projekt Red.

Sony recently removed Cyberpunk 2077 (Xbox Series X review | PS4 review) from its PlayStation Store and is offering full refunds for all gamers who have purchased the game via PS Store. Now, the developers have shared an update on retail refunds through a tweet, stating that they’re going to refund players out of their own pocket whether essential to ensure players have a passable experience. In a similar fashion, Microsoft could also be now offering refunds to players who bought the game from the Microsoft Store, though, it has not delisted the game like Sony did. Xbox players can head here to ask for a refund.

Additionally, Microsoft Store has added a warning message stating, “Users may experience performance issues when playing this game on Xbox One consoles until this game is up to date”.

With the exception of consoles, Cyberpunk 2077 players on Stadia were reportedly facing issues with running the game in 4K resolution and were stuck with 1080p, despite the fact that they had Stadia Pro. Playing Cyberpunk 2077 on Stadia is an easier and more satisfying alternative to playing it on final generation consoles or low-powered PCs, and players appear to be overloading Google’s servers as a result of which not all Stadia Pro users are in a position to play in 4K. Then again, there appears to be a workaround for this, as shared by a user in the Stadia community forum. The use of a VPN to run Stadia in a browser also seems to solve the issue, as per users.
