Cyberpunk 2077 has been one of the most hotly-anticipated titles in recent memory. Expectations were so high for this title that it's quite possible that CD Projekt Red could never live up to them. After numerous delays, however, Cyberpunk 2077 launched on December 10 to a mix of high praise and mild disappointment from many reviewers. The game is so massive, however, that we elected to take our time to really soak it in before tackling this review.  For those who are new to the franchise, Cyberpunk 2077 is based on the Cyberpunk tabletop role-playing game franchise. The second and fourth editions of Cyberpunk, known as Cyberpunk 2020 and Cyberpunk Red, are probably the most popular variants... Read more...
There's no question that Cyberpunk 2077 is an incredibly demanding game that can bring even the most well-stacked systems to its knees with the resolution and all graphics settings maxed out. But while gamers on PC (with recommended hardware), PlayStation 5, and Xbox Series X can at least get decent performance and visuals out the game, those with previous-generation Xbox One and PlayStation 4 consoles have been subjected to an ugly, bug-filled mess of a game. With this in mind, developer CD Projekt Red (CDPR) has been taking a lot of flak from the gaming community for Cyberpunk 2077 bugs, and how awful is looks on older consoles. Not surprisingly, CDPR co-CEO Adam Kiciński... Read more...
Cyberpunk 2077 is the talk of the town, and nobody should be the least bit surprised—this was, after all, one of the most anticipated games of the year. it was also a long time coming with numerous delays. Unfortunately, bugs still managed to hitch a ride, as they always seem to do (especially on higher profile games). CD Projekt Red will undoubtedly keep the patches coming, but in the short term, users are taking matters into their own hands with performance tweaks of their own. We have seen this already with a HEX edit that, with a simple change of a small piece of code, can compel Cyberpunk 2077 to take advantage of AMD's simultaneous multi-threading (SMT) support on Ryzen processors....

By now you are probably aware that there is a quirk in Cyberpunk 2077 that prevents it from taking full advantage of certain AMD Ryzen CPUs, by not properly leveraging simultaneous multi-threading (SMT) support, for whatever reason. As we wrote about over the weekend, there is a fix involving a simple change made with a simple HEX editor utility. Or you can try out a new mod, which has certain advantages over the HEX editing route. The mod is supposed to address multiple performance issues, including the SMT situation on Ryzen processors, as well as "minor performance fixes." In addition, it will still work when the game is updated by CD Projekt Red. If you use a HEX editor to tweak the Cyberpunk... Read more...
Cyberpunk 2077 may have been one of the most highly anticipated games of 2020 (if not, the most anticipated), but last week's launch was marred by a slew of bugs and performance issues across PC and console platforms. The platforms that were hardest hit, however, were the original Xbox One and PlayStation 4, which don't really have the horsepower to play Cyberpunk 2077 in its full glory. Cyberpunk 2077 developer CD Projekt Red (CDPR) has heard your complaints, and is going beyond its original promise to patch the hell out of the game to make it playable and actually enjoyable for the gaming masses. It posted a tweet early this morning indicating that players can now ask... Read more...
Cyberpunk 2077 has been a blockbuster release in the gaming world, representing the culmination of 8 years of intense development. Developer CD Projekt Red (CDPR) had its hands full during the development process, covering 9 versions of the game across PC, console, and Google Stadia streaming platforms. Needless to say, there were bugs during the game's launch this week... lots of bugs. As a result, CDPR has pushed out Hotfix 1.04 to address many of these lingering problems. One of the biggest "fixes" in this release isn't a bug per se, but will help bring some relief to people prone to epileptic seizures. There were many complaints that the flashing red and white lights during... Read more...
In case you've been living under a rock, CD Projekt Red's Cyberpunk 2077 launched on Thursday, and the game has been a massive success for the game studio. That should come as no surprise, at least based on Steam's active Cyberpunk players. Those numbers are just the tip of the iceberg, however, as Steam doesn't account for the masses who bought the game direct from CD Projekt, on GOG, or picked up Cyberpunk on the last-generation PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.  However, reviews have been kind of mixed and the game has experienced some hilarious, game-breaking bugs that sap the immersive feeling of Night City and on occasion completely halt progress in certain missions. The game has garnered... Read more...
CD Projekt Red's latest mega-blockbuster game, Cyberpunk 2077, launched this week on PC, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4. The developer announced its oft-delayed RPG way back in 2012, but anticipation has been running particularly hot for the several months now. We got our hands on the game right as the gates opened at midnight GMT on the today, but that's not enough time to work up a full review with all of our usual performance figures. So today we'll take a quick look at how the game runs and how its game world feels, on a narrow scope, but our full deep dive review will be coming soon.  Unfortunately, Cyberpunk's launch hasn't been without its trials. On the PC, DirectX ray tracing... Read more...
Cyberpunk 2077 is officially out around the globe, and while it has its fair share of bugs, it is a pretty enjoyable game. There are many missions, side quests, and random events to handle while you navigate your way through Night City. It seems that many other people are enjoying CD Projekt Red’s game, too, as it peaked on Steam’s charts at over 1 million concurrent players earlier today. It still resides at the top of the list, too, with more players than the bottom eight games combined. Cyberpunk 2077 is a gorgeous looking single-player game, especially if you can get away with ray tracing without burning your PC out. It has a vast and varied world that takes you from the dark...

We know a few things about next-gen game consoles and graphics cards. Like, the PlayStation 5 is fire (in a good way). So is the Xbox Series X, and the same can be said of AMD's Radeon RX 6000 series and NVIDIA's GeForce RTX 30 series. All good hardware for playing Cyberpunk 2077. You know what might not be good hardware for the game? Last-gen consoles. At long last, Cyberpunk 2077 is out, bringing with it all of its graphical glory and advanced effects, like real-time ray tracing. On the right hardware, it is a visual splendor. But on older hardware—the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One—let's just say the graphics take a hit. To highlight this, users have been uploading videos and images... Read more...
CD Projekt Red’s Cyberpunk 2077 is nearly here, and Google is gearing up in a big way for the game's launch. As were reported back in October, Cyberpunk 2077 will be available on Google’s Stadia game streaming service on Day 1 alongside PC and console offerings. However, with Stadia, you'll be able to play the game across a wide spectrum of platforms including on your TV with a Chromecast and a wireless controller or with your mobile device. In preparation for the December 10th launch of Cyberpunk 2077, Google just announced that Stadia is expanding to 8 additional European countries starting today. Potential subscribers in these new markets -- Austria, Czechia,... Read more...
We are only days away from the launch of CD Projekt Red’s blockbuster game this year, Cyberpunk 2077. For many, it will be launching on December 10th, but for a select few, it will be launching on December 9th for PC and Google Stadia players. Are you ready to enter Night City? In a tweet posted yesterday, the team behind Cyberpunk 2077 shared when exactly people would get access to the much-anticipated game. If users are on PC or Google’s Stadia, they will get access on December 10th at 12 AM GMT. In that same tweet, CD Projekt Red did the legwork of converting the times around the world. For example, the U.S. east coast will be able to play on December 9th at 7 PM EST. If you are... Read more...
The developer behind Cyberpunk 2077, one of the most highly anticipated games of the year, is not keen on people streaming and spoiling the game's content before its official release date. So much so, in fact, that CD Projekt Red issued a warning on Twitter, saying it is going to send armed, tactical Max-Tac (or Psycho Squad) agents "after everyone who does." Not really, of course—those who defy CD Projekt Red and stream the game before it actually launches will not actually have a Max-Tac operative storm through their doors with riot gear and the whole nine. Max-Tac is a fictional sub-group of major police forces in the game, and not a real-life entity that bothers itself with spoilers.... Read more...
Though Cyberpunk 2077 has been delayed a few times now, we are inching closer to what should be the real launch date, December 10th. Up until now, the hype surrounding the CD Projekt Red (CDPR) game has been building, especially with giveaways and Cyberpunk-themed technology. We saw things such as a Cyberpunk 2077 OnePlus 8T and an NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2080 Ti decked out in Cyberpunk yellow. Since then, a new GPU lineup has launched from NVIDIA, and CDPR has another giveaway up its sleeve, except this one is for China-only right now. The upcoming action-RPG game set in Night City is a beautiful looking game that will demand some decent hardware at the high end. CDPR recently updated its recommended... Read more...
The somewhat fractured nature of the real time ray tracing on the PC is coming to a head with the upcoming release of Cyberpunk 2077. We've known for quite some time that CD Projekt Red would support ray tracing effects in Cyberpunk 2077, and the company has been working closely with NVIDIA to enable support on GeForce RTX 20/30 Series hardware. However, we're getting the somewhat disappointing news this weekend that Cyberpunk 2077 ray tracing support will be exclusive to GeForce RTX cards at launch. Some might be a bit confused considering that Cyberpunk 2077 isn't using some propriety NVIDIA implementation of RTX ray tracing. Instead, the developer is using the industry standard DirectX...

Cyberpunk 2077 news has been ramping up quite a bit in the past few weeks -- namely because of a recently announced delay -- but CD Projekt Red is giving us some more insight into the game leading up to its eventual launch. Today, we've getting another glimpse at Night City in all its ray traced glory. The video comes to us from NVIDIA, which managed to get some interviews with the CD Projekt Red team members to talk about what they're doing to bring Night City to life. Interspersed with those interviews are some nice gameplay images of Cyberpunk 2077 running full-tilt with real time ray tracing enabled. In this case, the demo is of course running on GeForce RTX 30 hardware, and... Read more...
It should come as no surprise that there's been a lot of hype surrounding the release of Cyberpunk 2077. It doesn't help that the game has been delayed multiple times, which has drawn even more attention to CD Projekt Red's latest masterpiece. With that being said, if you haven't already preordered the game on any platform so far, Google is offering up a rather intriguing deal for those that are potentially looking to try out Stadia game streaming. If you preorder the game on Stadia, Google will give you a free Stadia Premiere kit. This kit includes a single Stadia controller, a Chromecast Ultra and a one-month trial to Stadia Pro (if you're a new customer). For those not in the know,... Read more...
As we wait for the fifth episode of Night City Wire to showcase some of Cyberpunk 2077’s décor, CD Projekt Red has given us some in-game footage. The video released on YouTube today shows a player navigating around Night City in first-person on the Xbox One X and Xbox Series X. Without spoiling the game, CD Projekt Red jumps between several story-lines and locations in Night City. This isn’t just cinematic footage either, as we get to see some driving, NPC interaction, gunfights, explosions, and even a saber of some sort. Overall, the 10-minute video is well worth the watch. If you looked closely during the video, it looked like the Xbox One X struggled slightly more than... Read more...
If you're itching to learn more about Cyberpunk 2077, and all of the inner workings of Night City, you'll be glad to know that the fifth episode of Night City Wire will air next week. In almost cruel twist of irony, the episode will be released on November 19th at 7pm ET; the same day that Cyberpunk 2077 was supposed to launch before its latest delay was announced. This newest Night City Wire episode will air on Twitch, just like previous episodes, so you know exactly where to tune in. During this episode, the CD Projekt Red team will be talking more about the music that will set the atmosphere for the game, but perhaps the biggest takeaway is that the episode... Read more...
CD Projekt Red's much-anticipated game, Cyberpunk 2077, received a yet another delay a few days ago, pushing it back to December 10th. While not a light decision, pushing the game back was done so that some final technical details could be ironed out, according to Adam Kiciński, joint CEO of CD Projekt Red, in an investor's call. In the same investors call, both Adam Kiciński and CFO Michał Nowakowski pinned down the December 10th date along with some other interesting tidbits. The biggest thing on everyone's mind is the delay of Cyberpunk 2077. When the questions opened on the investors' call, the first one asked was why the team is so confident in the December 10th date when delays had been... Read more...
Tell us if you've heard this one before... Cyberpunk 2077 has been delayed again. Once we heard that Cyberpunk 2077 had gone gold, we had wrongfully assumed that we wouldn't be faced with any more potential delays. But CD Projekt Red today confirmed our worst fears, indicating that the game will no longer be released on November 19th. Instead, it will now be released on December 10th barring any other unforeseen obstacles. "Most likely, there are many emotions and questions in your heads, so, first and foremost, please accept our humble apologies," the company explained in a tweet. Adam Badowski and Marcin Inwinski went on to blame the sheer number of versions that it... Read more...
Cyberpunk 2077 went gold earlier this month in preparation for its November 19th launch, and we’re quite certain that plenty of gamers have already placed their preorders. However, if you haven’t already preordered the game, Amazon currently has the game available with a $10 discount. Given how highly anticipated Cyberpunk 2077 is, and how much acclaim that it has already garnered from hands-on previews, we were a bit surprised to see this low pricing. With that being said, the $10 discount applies to the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Windows PC versions of the game, which you can purchase using the links below: Cyberpunk 2077 for PlayStation 4 $49.94 @ Amazon Cyberpunk 2077...
