It’s been just a couple of days since Cyberpunk 2077 has been released. Despite this, developer CD Projekt Red has rolled out the game’s first proper post-launch patch. And it includes, among a list of other things, the reduction of epileptic triggers.
Specifically, in the patch notes, CDPR says that it has modified the flashing effects of Braindances in Cyberpunk 2077 to reduce the risk of inducing epileptic symptoms. These effects have been “smoothed out” and the flashes reduced in frequency and magnitude.
No doubt this is a great change for those who have had a history of epileptic seizures. But to nitpick, it would probably have been better if it was a toggle option in the settings menu.
New hotfix to #Cyberpunk2077 is now live on PlayStation consoles and PC. For Xbox systems, we are working to have the update out as soon as possible.

There’s a list of other general bug fixes as well, many of which are quest specific. So they won’t be listed here in case of spoilers. But one interesting addition here is, interestingly, a fix to the “Disable Copyrighted Music” option. This suggests that CDPR wanted Cyberpunk 2077 to be very streamer friendly.
The latest Cyberpunk 2077 patch is now live on PC and PlayStation, with CDPR saying it will be up for Xbox as soon as possible. You can take a look at the full patch notes in the link below.
