Cyberpunk 2077 received Update 2.0 this week with several improvements and new mechanics for those who have already purchased the game. But many wonder what has changed in it compared to the original version, which was severely criticized when it was released. Fortunately, today we can see the graphical differences in a comparative video.
The video published by the GameBest YouTube channel begins to show the differences when using a motorcycle, as it is now possible to film while driving. In addition, vehicles now take visible damage when we shoot at them. Jumping from a moving car now deals damage to V, whereas in the original version it did nothing.
Now speaking of water, Update 2.0 has improved the physics when swimming and shooting in lakes. The graphics are now more realistic and several bugs have been removed, although V’s shadow still appears incorrectly in the water.
V’s reaction to falling into the lake with his car has also changed. In the original version, the character did nothing and the car did not suffer any damage. With Update 2.0, the car breaks down and V smashes the driver’s window to get out and not drown.
The animation when climbing stairs has been improved, as the character in the original version appeared to float if he looked down. NPC reactions have improved and they no longer finally disappear if you look up while on the street. They will run over V if threatened.
Now speaking of fire, you will take damage if you touch fire in 2.0, whereas in the original version V was practically “invulnerable” when getting close to something on fire. Grenades have also been improved and now do not burn if there is no target in the terrain.
Police behavior was improved by removing display errors where some police officers displayed incorrectly.
Speaking of rendering, the distance and accuracy of vehicles and NPCs have been improved in version 2.0, so that cars and trucks don’t look like little cubes moving through the streets.
Update 2.0 is free for those who already own Cyberpunk 2077 on Xbox, PlayStation, and PC. The Phantom Liberty expansion will be released next week and we’ve already created a special list of movies and series you should watch before playing it.
