Cyberpunk 2077 Patch 1.04 available for download, improves stability, reduces vehicle pop-ins

CD Projekt RED has just released a new patch for Cyberpunk 2077. According to the team, patch 1.04 reduces vehicle appearance pop-ins, and improves stability, including various crash fixes. Furthermore, this update modifies the flashing effect on braindances to reduce the risk of inducing epileptic symptoms.

Additionally, Update 1.04 removes copyrighted songs incorrectly present in the game with “Disable Copyrighted Music” feature toggled on. It also speeds up switching first-person perspective to third-person perspective in a vehicle, and fixes issues with animations missing from important quest NPCs during cinematics.

Do note that this patch does not allow yet Ray Tracing on AMD’s GPUs. Thus, AMD users will have to wait for another future update.

As always, all major stores will download Update 1.04 the next time you launch their clients. Below you can also find its complete changelog.
