A new hotfix for Cyberpunk 2077 has dropped. 

Developer CD Projekt Red has issued a hot fix for Cyberpunk 2077, which fixes a few different issues that have been found in the game. Changes included issues with quests, gameplay, and performance and stability. Other issues such as speeding up the switch from first person to third person perspective when entering a vehicle were made. There were also fixes made that were PC-specific and console-specific. You can read the full patch notes here

There were two big changes made to Cyberpunk 2077 in the new hot fix. The first addresses the braindance sequences that were causing seizures. The flashing effect during braindances has been modified to reduce the risk of inducing epileptic symptoms. The effect that occurs during the sequences has been smoothed out, and the flashes were reduced in frequency and magnitude. The fix also allows gamers to remove the copyrighted music found in the game by enabling the "Disable Copyrighted Music" feature. 

Earlier this week it was found that the braindance segments of Cyberpunk 2077 can cause epileptic seizures. This was due to the fact that red and white lights would flash on the screen, similar to how doctors induce seizures in patients that they are trying to diagnose. Hopefully the new hot fix helps alleviate the problem. 

It was also recently revealed that games purchased on GOG would start being compatible with Nvidia's GeForce NOW platform. The first game that will be found on the platform is Cyberpunk 2077. GeForce NOW will allow gamers to play on any device, including low-powered or incompatible laptops, Chromebooks, and more. GOG did mention that Cyberpunk 2077 being featured on GeForce NOW was only the first step, and that they will be dropping more news soon. 

Cyberpunk 2077 is out now for PC, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S, and Google Stadia.
