Today, CD Projekt Red has revealed that a hotfix is now available to download. Hotfix 1.22 is here to fix all of the issues discovered in 1.21, the previous hotfix that mended all of the errors caused with the global 1.2 update. The new update is available on all platforms, PC, Consoles, and Stadia, and it addresses the most frequently reported issues since the last patch.
Apparently, the fans have the upper hand this time, and CD Projekt Red listens to them carefully. The Metro: Memorial Park dataterm should now properly count towards the Frequent Flyer achievement and also fixes the issue preventing players from opening the phone in the apartment at the beginning of New Dawn Fades.
The update also focuses on some minor performance-based issues. With update 1.22, there should be better memory management and GPU performance of skinning and cloth rendering.
