Cyberpunk 2077 is now, officially, next-gen ready.
Following CD Projekt Red’s Twitch Livestream on Tuesday 15th February, the troubled game is finally available on PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X/S.
The game also received its patch 1.5 update across the board [PC, Xbox One, PS4, and Stadia].
The new patch brings in some (note; some) highly-requested features, including; a host of new weapons, additional apartments for V (which are also customisable), a “hairdressing mirror”.
This mirror (finally) allows character customisation for V; hairstyles, hair dyes, make-ups, piercing, etc.
In terms of next-gen update features, which boast between “Performance” and “Ray-tracing” modes, includes;
|PlayStation 5||PlayStation 5||Xbox Series X||Xbox Series X||Xbox Series S|
|FPS||60fps (with small & rare frame-drops)||30fps||60fps (with small & rare frame-drops)||30fps||30fps|
|Resolution (with Dynamic Framerate-Dependent Scaling)||4K||4K||4K||4K||1440P|
|Ray-traced||N/A||Local shadows||N/A||Local shadows||N/A|
A full list of patch notes can be found here. And there are a lot of improvements. Including a long awaited request of mine that sees a bug with Freedom of the Press finally get resolved. I’m gonna fire up my Stadia controller and finally finish that one off, 16 months later.
If you’re curious to see if Cyberpunk 2077 is worth it now, there’s a free demo for Xbox Series S and X and PlayStation 5. The demo gives you access to five hours of free access to 2077, with which you can experience as much (or as little) of the game as you want. You’ll have plenty of opportunity to see how it runs on your console, and, most importantly, if you like it. Don’t like it? There’s no commitment.
Be quick though, because you only have until 15th March to test out the demo.
It might not fix the wrongs of the past 18 months, but it’s certainly something.
