The new perk and skill trees seem like they could have a huge effect on the game. “Our vision for this new system was to have fewer, but way more impactful, perks for players to choose from,” CDPR wrote in a blog post. “Instead of getting multiple low percentage increases to your damage, you will now get many opportunities to unlock completely different abilities that modify the way you play.” In a broadcast, CDPR developers showed off a few builds they liked, including a “Hack-&-Slash Netrunner” and a “Bullet-Time Ninja.” And if you want to mess around with the new perks right now, you can do so in a new in-browser build planner.
Update 2.0 will be available for PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X / S, and PC. That’s probably a good thing given the game’s many problems on older consoles at launch.
