After 8 years of development, Cyberpunk 2077 is just hours away.
Here is everything you need to know.
Ahead of the games launch on December 10th, players will be able to install the game on their system so it is ready to play straight away when the game launches.
Here are the pre-load times for each system:
- PlayStation 4: Tuesday, 8 December at 12am local time
- Xbox One: Thursday, 3 December at 8 am PST / 11am EST / 4 pm GMT
- PC (GOG): Monday, 7 December at 3 am PST / 6 am EST / 11 am GMT
- PC (Steam and EGS): Monday, 7 December at 8 am PST / 11 am EST / 4 pm GMT
Here is when the game will unlock on each platform and region:
- PS4/Xbox One: Thursday, 10 December at 12am local time
- PC (all launchers): Wednesday, 9 December at 4pm PST / December 9 at 7 pm EST / December 10 at 12am GMT
Players can already preload the game, so if you haven't purchased yet then you've still got time to be ready for launch.
How Many Endings Are There?
Like CD Projekt Red's The Witcher 3, Cyberpunk 2077 will have multiple endings.
In an interview with YouTuber, YongYea, quest director Mateusz Tomaskiewicz confirmed there will be multiple endings.
It seems that the decision you make as V will shape the story and the ending you receive.
Players are free to play the game how they want, it is possible to complete the game without killing a single enemy, meaning a pacifist run could be an ending.
On the other hand, players are free to kill every NPC and enemy they are allowed too, so it is likely there will be a bad ending too.
CDPR also confirmed that the story can be finished without using cybernetics, so maybe that could be an ending too.
Cyberpunk 2077 has you choose from three different classes, Netrunner, Techie, and Solo, these could also affect endings too, with each one receiving their own unique ending.
Until the game releases we won't know for sure how many ending there will be.
But with each playthrough taking approximately 40-50 hours, it could be a long while before completionists see them all.
Cyberpunk 2077 will be available at launch on:
- PC via GOG, Epic Games Store, and Steam
- PlayStation 4
- Xbox One
- Google Stadia
What About PS5 & Xbox Series X|S?
CD Projekt Red have confirmed that the game will be coming to both the PS5 and Xbox Series X|S.
However, this won't be at launch and will instead be released hopefully sometime in 2021.
The good news is, due to both consoles' backwards compatibility, Cyberpunk 2077 will be playable on both next gen consoles at launch.
But, players will be using the PS4/Xbox One version of the game, meaning they won't get any of the improved graphics, ray tracing etc.
Will I Need To Buy The Game Again?
It has been confirmed that owners of the PS4 and Xbox One version of the game will be able to upgrade to the next gen version for free when it is released.
CD Projekt Red confirmed on Twitter that "a later upgrade to Cyberpunk 2077, taking full advantage of the next-gen hardware, will be available for free."
Cyberpunk 2077 is intended to have a multiplayer aspect to it.
However, this won't be available at launch.
There has been no official confirmation on when multiplayer will be released, but it is expected to be some time in 2021 or early 2022.
This shows that CD Projekt Red are intending on supporting the game for a long time.
Unfortunately, this means it might be a while before we see The Witcher 4, although we suspect it has already been in development for quite some time.
Day One Patch
DreamcastGuy has revealed that the game will have a 43GB patch on day one.
This is only confirmed for the Xbox One, but it is likely the size won't vary too much across all platforms.
Cyberpunk 2077 went gold shortly before its initial release date, meaning that this version will have been the one manufactured onto physical disks.
So with CD Projekt Red taking more time to work on the game, it is understandable we're seeing a large day one patch.
The update will mainly fix any issues the game might have, as well as improving textures and other graphical elements.
