Patch 1.3 is on the way for troubled RPG game Cyberpunk 2077, and it looks like Night City will finally be getting easier to navigate in a car. The GPS system, which has been ridiculed in memes for being the cause of countless vehicular accidents, is getting an overhaul – and a few other welcome changes are inbound as well.
The latest ‘development insight’ post from CD Projekt Red hints at a few coming changes to Cyberpunk 2077, and the GPS overhaul is at the top of the list. These posts are written as in-universe news broadcasts, so it can be a little tricky to suss out exactly what’s on the way. However, a real-world CD Projekt Red programmer is quoted as well, saying “With the new minimap system software update you are able to see more and navigate better. Drive fast, drive safe.”
That’ll be a relief for anyone who’s gotten frustrated with some of Cyberpunk 2077’s driving missions, in which your GPS will frequently indicate turns far too late for you to be able to perform them without smashing into level geometry, other vehicles, and hapless civilians. The update doesn’t explain exactly what’s changing, but the safe bet is likely that the minimap will be a bit smarter about zooming out when you’re traveling at high speeds (which, if you’re us, is ‘constantly’).
