The day is finally here with the PS5 and Xbox Series X|S getting the official upgrade for Cyberpunk 2077. It was supposed to be out about six months ago to get the hopeful fans back in for the game, but it looks like it took CD Projekt RED just a bit longer to get it done. As long as it brings Cyberpunk 2077 to the same playable state that it has been for the PC for a while now, it should be worth the wait. I know it is something that I have been waiting for to see where the game should finally be. Now it is here and ready to download for the new consoles for free. Even if it is a bit of a massive update and space needed to get out there for now. It is what it is for now.
Those that may have been holding off on Cyberpunk 2077 this entire time will also have a chance to see if it is in a place to finally pay for now too. To try to bring some players back in, there is also a free demo that will let you experience a few hours of the game in its current state as of right now too. A smart move on the team to try to show everyone beyond a simple trailer that Cyberpunk 2077 is in a state that was originally promised to us all. Even if the PS4 and Xbox One versions will still be on the lower side of it all. All the platforms are still getting the updates and changes to improve it all, but it will certainly be the next-gen and PC that will have the game in the best state.
The following video for Cyberpunk 2077, and other gameplay we have on our channel, does make the game look vastly better than it did at launch. It is still nowhere near what was shown during all of the press conferences before launch, but it does feel like it is getting closer visually and basically there. Even if it still feels like there are massive portions of Cyberpunk 2077 still missing in the final build of the game. I am talking about gameplay features and not just the visual and audio parts of the game. Have a look at it all just a little lower and see if you will be letting it all take a bit more space on your systems.
