Cyberpunk 2077: Patch Notes 1.6 - List of what's new in the update

CD Projekt Red has rolled out the new crossover patch with the Edgerunners anime. It introduces a lot of new things, whether it's new weapons, a new side mission, contracts, or the arcade game Roach Race. Here are the full patch notes along with a summary.

Arguably, the September 6 Night City Wire dedicated to Cyberpunk 2077 was full of surprises, as it announced the same-day deployment of Patch 1.6 , with plenty of new features and plenty of long-requested fixes. You just have to download the patch and launch the game to enjoy it, regardless of your machine. However, it should be noted that this is the last content patch for the "old" consoles, i.e. PS4 and Xbox One, for technical reasons. Considering the game's track record with these consoles, it's not that surprising.
