In addition to these, with the Cyberpunk 2077 Patch 1.1, the file in which your game records are kept has been restricted to reach high sizes. Unfortunately, there is no way to recover it if a recording that was previously 8 MB in size has been corrupted. In addition, you will now be able to earn achievements on Steam even if you are in offline mode. However, as stated in the patch notes, you need to switch to offline mode before opening the game. A bug that caused the game to crash for NVidia graphics cards has also been fixed.
This was the first major update CD Projekt RED promised for the game. More than technical problems, efforts have been made to eliminate bugs for many tasks. Along with the feedback from the players, there is one more big patch promise, which they say will be followed by regular updates, large and small.
