The standard for next-gen.
Cyberpunk 2077 is the latest project from CD Projekt Red, the developers behind the Witcher 3. To follow up the game that defined a generation of gaming, Cyberpunk 2077 needed to be huge, ambitious, and captivating. Every indication says that CD Projekt Red is poised to repeat history with their sci-fi, open-world RPG adventure.
I'm so happy I had the chance to experience the Braindance visuals the way the game designers intended
I guess I will miss it. I had to stop playing JUST before that first scene.
If you got the physical disc just uninstall it, disconnect the console from my internet and try again... Maybe I'll work?
Nope, digital. This is the future.
will be good to restart the game once the patches have all been released
I'm not going to wait 4 years to play the game. 😜
Based on the time it took me to finish the witcher 3, by the time I actually finish one play through they will have released two DLCs lol
When will the Xbox update arrive? Good news right now for PC and PS5
The PS5 update didn't help much for a streamer I follow who had a stream of the game today. Said stream had 7 game crashes all up including one hard crash that required a reboot of the PS5.
