If you’ve been sitting around anxiously awaiting more news of Cyberpunk 2077, then don’t worry your fix is coming soon. CD Projekt Red announced that the second episode of their Night City Wire livestream will be airing August 10th (this coming Monday) and will be showing off more of the game’s features and characters.
If you were hoping to somehow get your hands on Cyberpunk 2077 before the actual release date, it sounds like that won’t be happening, as CD Projekt Red announced that they have no plans for an official CP2077 Beta. Additionally, several unofficial Beta invites have been sent out over the week, and CDPR warns that they are indeed a scam:
It was pretty much inevitable that CD Projekt Red had to delay the upcoming highly-anticipated Cyberpunk 2077 a second time, but that didn’t make the announcement any less easier to hear though. Now we have a solid date for the release: November 19th, and the developers have stated that they believe this is the definitive release date.
It seems that CD Projekt Red are relishing in our torment, as they keep showing off more and more screenshots ahead of the game’s delayed launch in November. Nevertheless, they’re always very pretty to gawk at, and now the official Twitter account for Cyberpunk 2077 has released some very interesting pieces of concept art revealing the super-rich district of Westbrook.
Let’s face it, it sucks when we see a newly announced game at E3, only to find numerous graphical downgrades when the game actually hits our systems. Ubisoft are notorious for it, especially with that iconic Rainbow Six: Siege trailer from E3 2014 or the infamous Watch Dogs demo from 2012. Thanks to Youtube user Cycu1 though, we now have a pretty damn good graphics comparison video for Cyberpunk 2077 that compares the 2018 gameplay demo from more recent b-roll footage in 2020.
It’s one of the most anticipated games of 2020, and we hope Cyberpunk 2077 is actually coming out in 2020 after it got delayed for a second time. But following the recent Night City Wire Episode 1 which gave us a new trailer and gameplay footage, as well as the announcement that it will only run on the DirectX12 API and so Windows 10 & 7 will be the only supported operating systems, it’s time to have a think about whether or not we should be upgrading before Cyberpunk 2077 officially releases in November.
These days everyone is sitting around twiddling their thumbs for when Cyberpunk 2077’s official system requirements are revealed. Many places have already put together their own predictions but we thought they were just way too high for anything reasonable, so we’ve put together our own predictions for Cyberpunk 2077’s system requirements, as well as some performance expectations.
We’ve got some very interesting news for everyone who’s looking to play Cyberpunk 2077 on their PC systems, as it will only support the DirectX12 API, meaning that Windows 10 and Windows 7 will be the only supported operating systems.
There’s a lot of news coming out at the moment regarding Cyberpunk 2077. It all started off when it was revealed that the release date had been delayed for a second time, then we got a good 30 minute episode of Night City Wire which showed us a new trailer and gameplay footage. Now it seems like more info has been spilling out since then, including that the wall running mechanic during one of the gameplay demos has been scrapped.
We’re still quite a way until the official release of Cyberpunk 2077 (which we hope won’t be delayed again) but at least we’ll have frequent updates in the form of Night City Wire until the November release. Nvidia has also recently teased us with some draw-dropping ray traced screenshots, and they have just again shared another 4 screenshots with RTX enabled in Cyberpunk 2077.
There’s a lot of information going around about Cyberpunk 2077 right now, the hype is starting to ramp up again after the recent second launch date delay and with the debut of the first episode of Night City Wire, which showed us a new trailer and fresh new gameplay. But some new details have been revealed about that gameplay demo released earlier, including that the Cyberpunk 2077 demo was indeed running the PC version at 1080p 60fps with ray tracing effects enabled and DLSS 2.0.
