Cyberpunk 2077 – it’s not speculated to appear to be this (pic: Michael Does Life)
It appears Cyberpunk 2077 runs on the unique PlayStation 4 and Xbox One about in addition to anticipated, which is to say not very effectively in any respect.
It’s been apparent for a very long time that the PC is the lead format for Cyberpunk 2077, with developer CD Projekt solely displaying footage of it working on Xbox One and PlayStation 4 a number of weeks earlier than the sport’s launch – and even then solely on the extra highly effective Xbox One X and PS4 Professional.
Overview copies for the console variations additionally got here in a lot later than the PC, that means nobody might get a overview accomplished earlier than launch. However actually, all of that already tells you every part you must learn about CD Projekt’s confidence within the console variations.
We’ve got performed the sport on the PS4 Professional and whereas there are some bugs and issues with texture and object pop-in it’s really been largely effective to date. The difficulty appears to be when enjoying the sport on the cheaper, much less highly effective variations of the consoles.
Because the sport got here out on Thursday morning followers have been reporting not simply issues with pop-in however main body price points, characters freezing up, blurry visuals, and principally each different efficiency subject within the guide.
We will’t assist pondering of Doom Eternal on the Nintendo Switch, which we additionally reviewed this week, which proves that modestly powered consoles can run demanding video games in the event that they’re correctly dealt with.
However contemplating what a rush CD Projekt have been in to get the sport completed on PC – which nonetheless had tons of bugs itself – it appears the console variations have been decrease precedence.
Should you’re planning to get a PlayStation 5 or Xbox Sequence X console then working the sport on a subsequent gen machine does repair many of the efficiency points, simply not the bugs.
Devoted subsequent gen variations of the sport are additionally due out someday subsequent yr, so hopefully they’ll take pleasure in a smoother launch and never so many memes…
