Cyberpunk 2077 Hotfix Addresses Epilepsy Triggers and More
Cyberpunk 2077 Hotfix Addresses Epilepsy Triggers and More.
MMOBEEP found out that CD Projekt RED has just launched a hotfix two days ago for Cyberpunk 2077 on PC and PS4, which removes all of the epilepsy triggers in the game and also included several more fixes.
Some may remember that these epilepsy triggers were pointed out by Game Informer just recently, specifically when you use the braindance. CDPR even responded and said that they would include a separate warning and work on a more long-lasting solution. On the PC version, this particular warning could have been seen on Day One.
However, this new Cyberpunk 2077 Hotfix does its best to fix these triggers:
- Modified the flashing effect on braindance to reduce the risk of inducing epileptic symptoms. The result has been smoothed out and the flashes reduced in frequency and magnitude.
Liana Ruppert of Game Informer, author of the original PSA article, also responded in a kind-mattered voice. She also explained that she had also spoken with CDPR because of her original article.
“This is a huge win for both the industry and gamers because these changes to make games safer don’t have to mean that total removal like many assume. This is work I’ve been doing for years and to see studios respond productively and kindly means the whole world.”
Also, this new hotfix fixes some quests and some performance fixes, including crash fixes and PC-specific and console-specific fixes improvements.
