A few weeks after the much awaited patch 1.5 of Cyberpunk 2077, which is particularly interesting for the PS5 and Xbox Series X|S versions, a new mystery is brewing in Night City…
Reddit user makavelinow has indeed discovered a mini-quest that doesn’t appear on the game’s map or in the newspaper, but that seems to lead to a much bigger secret.
While walking around Night City after installing patch 1.5, makavelinow came across a non-player character crying his eyes out, but with whom no interaction is possible. Scanning the surroundings, it seems that the reason for his emotion is an object that fell to the bottom of the water. It is therefore possible to dive to retrieve the lost object, which turns out to be a key.
Upon returning his property to the mysterious new NPC, he thanks V and connects the key to his phone. Looking over his shoulder, we can see several series of numbers and letters, including a green highlight.
For now, the mystery ends there. But many Reddit users have reacted to makavelinow‘s discovery with their own theories and speculations. Whatever the case really is, many agree that such an addition is far from trivial.
Since the gaming community loves to unravel these kinds of mysteries, we may soon discover that this well-hidden code allows access to a site page or to elements hidden in the game, such as clues to the future of Night City. Investigation to follow in the City of Dreams…
