Cyberpunk 2077’s Next-Gen Release and Update

Published

 on

Remember the craze for Cyberpunk 2077’s initial release? The company CD Projekt Red literally smashed the all-time sales record with $562 million sales. On top of that, the game broke the steam record for over a million concurrent players on PC. The release of Cyberpunk 2077 was overwhelmed with support, but with that release, there was an overwhelming amount of bugs in the game. Well, the time has passed and big steps forward were taken in that time by CD Projekt Red.

Cyberpunk 2077 has just received a huge update that is roughly 40 to 60 GB depending on the platform. With the update, also came the release of the game on next-gen consoles, Playstation 5, Xbox Series X, and S. The game is offering a one-month, free five-hour trial to promote the game on console, so if you are hesitant to purchase give it a test run first. Equally important, the game is at a 50% discount on both the PlayStation and Xbox stores until March 3, 2022.  So if you’re already interested, I recommend grabbing it while it’s on sale.

Take a look at the official launch trailer for yourself which, I’ll admit, is pretty intriguing.

Patch 1.5 Notes

The update itself has pretty much made changes to all aspects of the game. A ton of new quests were added in and even a few hidden secrets throughout Night City. Loot was drastically reduced to allow more visual prescreen on the scenes and environments. New graphic modes were added to next-gen, as well as ray-tracing for light and shadows. More character customization and make-up options were added (if there wasn’t enough already). Even some skills were redesigned and removed from the skill tree. Those are some of the main highlights, but here are the patch notes if you would like to take a look at them yourself.
