Update: Hot­fix 1.04 is now avail­able for Xbox play­ers as well.

Cyber­punk is going into its sec­ond day of release and CD Pro­jekt Red has pushed a rather large hot­fix to play­ers, which was need­ed. Most of the fix­es sur­round issues with quests. There were also some visu­al adjus­ments, gen­er­al sta­bil­i­ty improve­ment, mis­cel­la­neous fix­es and more. 

As of this writ­ing the update has only been sent out to PlaySta­tion and PC users. CD Pro­jekt Red stat­ed on the game’s Twit­ter account they are work­ing on hav­ing the update “out as soon as possible.”
