Patch 1.5 for Cyberpunk 2077 adds in some smaller DLC packs like new apartments, the ability to customize V's appearance throughout the game, some new guns, improved crowd reactions, a reworked skill tree and more. This patch is accompanying the Xbox Series X, Xbox Series S and PS5 upgrades for the game, which add new visual features, faster loading times and more.
