Cyberpunk 2077 Update Released, Fixes Epilepsy Seizure Trigger Scenes, Here’s a List of Changes

Hotfix 1.04 promises to fix a lot of issues

Cyberpunk 2077 released on December 10th, and we have heard about all sorts of issues with the game since then. CD Projekt Red had delayed the game multiple times in an effort to get it running perfectly for the launch. Even after the game went Gold, CD Projekt Red delayed it even further to polish it up.

However, the efforts were clearly not enough as not many folks seem to be very happy with Cyberpunk 2077. There was even a rather serious problem with some scenes causing epileptic seizures. With the number of bugs and glitches piling up, Cyberpunk 2077 now has a new update, Hotfix 1.04, which fixes the seizure triggers and some other issues.
