According to early player assessments of the update, the 2.0 patch for Cyberpunk 2077 has removed one aspect of the game that was far too heavily memed. This particular aspect was an image that had been carelessly edited in some way. The highly anticipated 2.0 edition of Cyberpunk 2077 was made accessible to the general public for the first time on September 21.
One of the most talked about aspects of the game, despite the fact that its release in 2020 was beset by technical issues, was not actually the result of a bug but rather an oversight in the form of a photograph that had been improperly modified. This was despite the fact that the release of the game in 2020 was plagued by technical problems. V received the image in question from River Ward’s sister, Joss Kutcher, after finishing the Cyberpunk 2077 side objective “The Hunt.” V is the protagonist of the game. The photograph was accompanied with a statement that thanked the main character for discovering Randy Kutcher; however, the authenticity of the message was called into question due to the plainly faked nature of the photograph that was attached.
And in spite of the fact that a lot of players were under the impression that CD Projekt Red would never get around to replacing that remaining placeholder, the developer ended up getting around to doing it. The corporation decided to replace the image that had caused the player’s immersion to be broken with a montage that was significantly more spectacular than the one that had been used previously. The fact that the action is not listed in the official patch notes for the Cyberpunk 2077 update 2.0 gives the impression that the most recent version of the game offers even more improvements than its extensive changelog says it does because of the absence of those patch notes.
Already, hundreds of Randy’s devoted followers have taken to various social media platforms to express their gratitude to CDPR for altering the image that many had referred to as a “cursed” depiction of Randy. They expressed their gratitude to the game’s developer for taking the effort to fix even the most insignificant issues of this nature within the game. Other players, however, have expressed conflicted feelings regarding the replacement, stating that they would mourn the unexpected comedic relief that the photo that was highly memetized provided throughout each game. While this viewpoint appears to be prevalent among the players who are aware of the change, other players have nonetheless stated conflicted sentiments regarding the replacement.
In addition, as part of the 2.0 update for Cyberpunk 2077, CDPR removed a character that was a doppelganger of Elon Musk. This was another insignificant change that was not included in the latest patch notes; nonetheless, astute members of the fandom noticed it immediately upon its implementation. In the end, both updates are extremely modest additions to the game, at least in comparison to the sheer vastness of the 2.0 version, which affects sufficient components of Cyberpunk 2077 to create a dramatically different experience when playing the game. In other words, the 2.0 update is the most significant of the three updates.
The most recent list of changes prioritises carrying out significant changes to the way the judicial and law enforcement systems operate. Because to this reform, the North Carolina State Police will no longer be able to produce new officers out of thin air; instead, the department will concentrate on providing more realistic patrols and police responses to crimes. This version introduces non-scripted vehicle combat and a fully redesigned perk system, in addition to a large number of other adjustments.
