Ambition ended up taking its toll on CD-Projekt Red. What promised to be one of the best video games in history has ended up becoming a fiasco which, luckily, It seems to have a solution.
And it is that the first patch of 2021 of those that really have importance has just seen the light. That is, we are not referring to those that fix a couple of minor bugs, but to the version 1.1 that ends with bugs that compromise the playability.

Beyond the graphical setbacks, the developers have focused on completely eliminating the problems that arose suddenly preventing further progress in the game . Hence, players were forced to reboot.
Everything seems to indicate that such serious failures have become history . One of the most viral was the one that corrupted the save file.

On PC it had already been solved and finally the same can also be said on consoles.

Regarding PlayStation 4 and 5, both show better performance than The time to recreate on screen many NPCs , regardless of where they appear.
All Xbox consoles, both those of previous generation like the current ones, they will benefit enormously from a memory optimization that will not only affect the pure gameplay, but also other somewhat more secondary factors such as navigate through the menu.
Although on PC the game was moderately functional, numerous bugs have also been corrected, on all some textures such as the eyes of the characters that were not displayed correctly. In addition, those who play the title via Steam will be able to unlock achievements without being connected.
Although it is It is true that so far the community seems satisfied with the arrangements made by the developer company, it still has a long way to go if it intends to correct the damage caused to players by launching a product unfinished.
In less than two months, patch 1.2 should be ready to fix another large number of bugs. Later, CD-Projekt Red will start launching the DLC at zero cost , also pending the update for new generation consoles.
