The content leak for The Last of Us 2 was, at least to some extent, pretty disappointing for its developers, but the exact opposite is true of a leaked content rating for Cyberpunk 2077. The leak occurred only briefly from the Brazilian Ministry of Justice and labels Cyberpunk 2077 as an 18+ game. Highlights of the listing include some very telling concepts that we can expect:
“Exposure to death corpse”“Body injury”“Description of illicit drug consumption of trafficking”“Nudity”“Sexual relationship”“Intense sexual relation”“Cruelty”“Mutilation”
Oddly enough, the only thing in the listing lists as 18+ is the cruelty aspect which could be just about anything, but we’re guessing it relates to some kind of low-level torture perhaps. If you want to see the full list, you can see it over on Reddit, but the point is that Pawel Sasko, a developer at CD Projekt Red, posted a brief screenshot and expressed just how proud of the leaked rating he is:
You surprised? 😏We don’t fuck around. https://t.co/JVh851BaOI—...
The Cyberpunk 2077 gameplay footage released last year at Gamescom was impressive, but it wasn’t anywhere near as impressive as it is now that it has been upscaled to 8K. The best part is that you can even see the different on an “old-fashioned” 1080p monitor, and quite easily too.
The footage comes courtest of Ani HVX on YouTube and Preston Dortsch on Twitter. To create the upscaled video quality a tech similar to to the way you can upscale footage to 4k with Nvidia’s DLSS technology. Even better yet, it looks like we’ll be seeing even more of this footage in 8K as it’s released, as Dortsch admitted on Reddit:
"I'll be properly upscaling whatever future video content CDPR releases over the game so keep your eyes peeled for that”
Now, to explain the trickery a bit. I know it doesn’t seem logical that you can actually see the improvement offered by 8K on a 4K...
After two leaks that showed the Cyberpunk 2077 limited edition controller and the limited-edition console, Microsoft has finally made it official. The Cyberpunk 2077 limited edition console will, in fact, be the final limited-edition model of the Xbox One generation. As part of the official announcement, Microsoft went into detail of the new bundle and confirmed that only 45,000 examples of the Cyberpunk 2077 Xbox One X bundle will be available and only in select markets.
As you can see from the short video above, the console and controller are largely inspired by the game with distinct panels, some of which glow in the dark, and extra LEDs. There are even custom panels that you don’t see on the standard Xbox Series X. The bundle is scheduled to arrive in June with the limited-edition controller and a digital download for Cyberpunk 2077. Don’t get too excited, though, as you’ll still have to wait until September 17th to actually play...
UPDATE 4/17/2020: Another Amazon listing posted a little too seen has leaked the Cyberpunk 2077 Xbox One X bundle, something that we predicted just 2 hours ago when the special-edition controller was leaked. We have to admit that the console bundle does look amazing, despite the fact that it should launch in September, just a month or two before the Xbox Series X is set to launch. We definitely saw this coming as Xbox started teasing the bundle early this week, but considering this isn’t completely official quite yet, you can expect to hear more about it in the coming days and months.
A listing for a Cyberpunk 2077-themed Xbox One controller recently landed on Amazon Canada, and despite the fact that the game doesn’t launch until September 17, 2020, the special-edition controller has a May 4, 2020 release date.
To be clear, this controller hasn’t been officially unveiled or even acknowledged by either Xbox or...
January 2020 broke us off with the horrible news that Cyberpunk 2077 had been delayed until September and that Multiplayer would be at least a year out after that. Then COVID-19 happened and games like Wasteland 3, Dying Light 2, and The Last of Us 2 quickly got filed into the delayed folder. It seemed that, as unfortunate as things were, that Cyberpunk 2077 would, in fact, be delayed again, but that’s actually not the case at all as CD Projekt Red’s team has managed to pull things together despite a lot of working from home. That does, however, mean that some concessions have to be made, and one of those is that Cyberpunk 2077 won’t exactly be 100-percent complete at launch.
That doesn’t mean that the game isn’t playable, though, and chances are, you won’t even notice that there’s something missing from the game thanks to a Day One patch that CDPR is planning to implement. This story comes way of CDPR’s SVP of...
CD Projekt Red recently hosted a Q&A session with investors in which it discussed future business plans and what it’s plans were for Cyberpunk 2077. Despite its most recent delay that holds the game back until September, CDPR is still looking to the future and planning a bunch of DLC, including at least two major paid expansions. In short, it will update Cyberpunk 2077 in the same way that it has graciously treated The Witcher 3.
Word comes directly from CD Projekt Red President, Adam Kicinski, but it had to be translated from polish (thanks to VGC for that translation.) In the investors call, Kicinski said that Cyberpunk 2077 will have “no less DLC than The Witcher 3 had” and that we should “anticipate a similar scenario to the Witcher 3” in regard to when DLC will be released. That means there should be a large spread of free updates to add short term extras to the game and at least two large, paid expansions later on down the...
Back when it was announced that Cyberpunk 2077 would be playable on the Xbox One and Xbox Series X, we weren’t sure if that was thanks to backward compatibility or because CDPR was planning to build a next-gen specific version of the game. A new report from Video Games Chronicle has clarified this, and there will be a next-gen version of the game, but it won’t be a Series X launch game.
To clarify what this means, you’ll be able to play Cyberpunk 2077 on the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X when they launch via backward compatibility. Sometime down the road, a “full-blown next-gen version” of the game will be launched that will, as of now, be designed specifically for the Xbox Series X. CDPR has yet to confirm an port for the PlayStation 5, though. The good news for Xbox owners, however is that the next-gen version of the game will be free thanks to Microsoft’s Smart Delivery program.
The report quotes the CDPR’s...
First, let’s talk about Microsofts Smart Delivery’s big names: Cyberpunk 2077, Geras 5, and Halo Infinite. This program will allow players to buy the games on Xbox One and receive them for free on Xbox Series X after they upgrade. The news was confirmed by Samuel Bateman. Microsft's Marketing Lead confirmed via a twitter post. another post, this time by Phil Spencer, the Xbox boss explaining the process of Smart Delivery. Cyberpunk 2077 was the first to announce this capability.
It looks like Microsoft it’s doing it’s best to keep the console family connected. This will also come as a bonus for players that will be able to buy the game once and enjoy it on different consoles. I don’t know about you, but the idea of having a single account with multiple games and being able to use it on various devices sounds like a good solution to me.
After you buy the game, you won’t have to upgrade right after. The Smart...
Over the next 8 or 9 months, you’re going to have to put a
little more thought into whether or not you want to buy new games when they
launch. After all, the Xbox Series X and PS5 will be launching for the holidays,
so it doesn’t make a lot of sense to buy a new game, just to purchase it for
the next-gen console a few months later. Well, with Cyberpunk 2077, that won’t
be an issue.
Shortly after the official Xbox Twitter account posted news that the Xbox Series X would support backward compatibility across four generations, CD Porjekt Red took action too. Posting via the official Cyberpunk 2077 Twitter account, the developer has confirmed that any Xbox One owner that buys Cyberpunk 2077 will be able to play on the Xbox Series X for free when it is available. Of course, the current-gen verion of Cyberpunk 2077 won't launch until September, so who knows what "when it is available" really means.
Gamers should never be forced to...
CD Projekt’s value has grown to over $8 billion in just a few months (previously, their value was $6.8 billion). If you’re wondering what’s the secret: the Netflix series adaption of The Witcher is responsible for the market explosion. There we’re a high number of sales before the series, no doubt, but Steam recorded $50 million in sales from the Witcher 3, and a lot of that money goes to CD Projekt’s wallet.
The popular Netflix series has increased incomes with 500%. The credit shouldn’t go all to the series as the Nintendo Wwitch port of The Witcher 3 also played a big role here.. Cyberpunk 2077 is a maybe; we don’t know the income that the upcoming game has or will bring to the company, but something tells us that it's going to be a major success.
In case you’re wondering who’s the number one on the ladder: is Ubisoft Entertainment's French Division with a value of $9.6 billion.
