I’m hoping against all hope that Cyberpunk 2077’s expansion overhaul will finally fix the game’s lingering mechanical malaise

When Cyberpunk 2077 got its big redemption arc thanks to post-launch patches and the Edgerunners anime, I laughed – this game was always this good, despite any glitches or last-gen console performance, but those vaunted updates never quite got to the real malaise at the heart of its RPG system: the character building and gear that didn’t. never felt substantial or rewarding, and always served as more of a drag on Cyberpunk’s great combat, stealth, and storytelling.
