Today, CD Projekt RED announced that Cyberpunk 2077 was launching on Xbox One and other platforms in April 2020. As with any major "AAA" game, a lot of players wanted to know how it ran on various consoles. According to the Microsoft Store listing, Cyberpunk 2077 is Xbox One X Enhanced and runs at 4K resolution on the system.
Games upscaled from 1080p or lower resolutions look incredibly blurry on 4K displays, so it's great to see that the team is prioritizing resolution. Hopefully there will be an option to toggle 60 frames per second, just like The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt on the console. However, only time will tell.
According to the developer, Cyberpunk 2077 is an open-world, action-adventure story set in Night City, a megalopolis obsessed with power, glamour, and body modification. You play as "V," a mercenary outlaw going after a one-of-a-kind implant that is the key to immortality. You can customize your character's cyberware, skillset and playstyle, and explore a vast city where the choices you make shape the story and the world around you.
Night City Calls
Cyberpunk 2077 takes players to the gritty, neon-lit streets of Night City. The latest opus from Witcher developer CD Projekt Red is set to launch on April 16, 2020.
