After its release, Cyberpunk 2077 received a lot of criticism for unfinished game mechanics, promises made and the high performance required. But meanwhile, there are some patches and most problems are solved. With the extensive patch 1.5, however, there seem to be some new bugs. Read more about this below.

More than a year after its release, Cyberpunk 2077 is still a very complex and visually complex game that pushes many PCs and especially the old game consoles to their performance limits. However, CD Project Red has included numerous improvements in the open-world game with patch 1.5, which we have already reported on.

Of course, the patch of such a complex game, which is more than 60 GB in size, cannot be error-free and so the developers are now investigating problems with the current patch. PC players who are now experiencing crashes should update Windows if it is older than version 1909. A clean reinstallation of the Nvidia driver should also often help in the event of a crash and is described on the developer’s website. Another solution that often seems to fix crashes is to check the game data. This can be done via GOG or Steam and would replace compromised files. In-game overlays can also be problematic and should be disabled. CD Project Red also advises against any overclocking.

But there also seems to be trouble with patch 1.5 on the PS4. With some games, the disc version of Cyberpunk no longer starts after the patch, while problems occur on the PC due to pre-installed audio software such as Nahimic or Sonic Studio. While there is still no solution in sight for the PS4 problem, the developers advise PC players to temporarily disable problematic drivers in order to be able to continue playing.

In other news, the German lawyer for Internet and media law and Youtuber Christian Solmecke from the WBS law firm explains in a video the legal options available to Battlefield 2042 players who want their money for the first-person shooter refunded.

Battlefield 2042 is probably not one of the best games to come from publisher Electronic Arts. There is almost no positive approval for the first-person shooter on Steam, important features such as the scoreboard or voice chat are said to be still missing. Meanwhile, a petition is also running on the platform demanding a refund of the purchase price for Battlefield 2042. As a result of the media coverage, it has now been signed more than 200,000 times.
