Vehicles work again in Cyberpunk 2077 thanks to Patch 1.2

Cyberpunk 2077 has received another patch in the form of Update 1.2 across all platforms.

The game didn't exactly have the best release, and Sony even decided to remove the game from their store due to the number of bugs.

However, months after release and following many patches, the game is playable once again. So, let's take a look at this update 1.2 and what it fixes!

CP2077 Update 1.2

The update was announced yesterday in a blog post on the official Cyberpunk 2077 website.

TIME FOR A RIDE: Vehicles form a large part of Cyberpunk's gameplay!

It came with the message that the update would be "coming soon", but we didn't expect the next day!

It brings with it over 500 fixes and improvements for the game across the various platforms. Let's focus on the vehicle changes and fixes first.

Update 1.2 vehicle changes

There are a number of changes which make vehicles far more useable in Cyberpunk 2077. Firstly, players will no longer get stuck as crouching or aiming when leaving a vehicle.

FIX UP: These changes should make the game more enjoyable again!

A new Steering Sensitivity slider has been added which can reduce steering speed for all vehicles. This will be useful for mouse and keyboard players!

Steering has also been improved, especially on consoles. Finally, an unstuck feature has been added. This will allow players to try and rock/rotate their stuck vehicles in an attempt to free them.

Other changes have been made to vehicles beside the highlights above. We collated all the vehicle related fixes below:

  • Minor driving model tune revisions to some vehicles to improve steering, cure excessive body roll and oversteer.
