We are officially less than a week until Cyberpunk 2077 launches on PC and consoles, and whilst some of us may have accidentally gotten a copy early, most of us will be waiting until Thursday to finally play the game. But regardless of how excited you are, we wanted to ask: how are you preparing for Cyberpunk 2077?

Maybe you’re really excited for the next AAA RPG from infamous development studio CD Projekt Red, and so you’re consuming all the Cyberpunk-related stuff you can find including movies, TV shows, or even other games to scratch that Cyberpunk itch in time for Cyberpunk 2077.

Maybe you’ve even picked up the original Cyberpunk 2020 tabletop RPG and have been playing with some of your friends? To refresh yourself on the world of Night City and it’s various inhabitants?

Or maybe you’re going completely blind to keep yourself from any form of expectations. You’ve gone this far without watching any new trailers or gameplay videos, so you’re taking it an extra step further and not consuming anything that remotely comes close to the Cyberpunk genre.

Whatever it is, we want to hear from you how you’re preparing and maybe help out those who are struggling to contain the excitement by sharing some awesome stuff that you’re experiencing like any cool games or movies or TV shows or comic books or anything!

Let’s keep this positive though as I’m sure a lot of us are excited for the release on Thursday.

So what are you doing, Choombahs? How are you preparing for Cyberpunk 2077? Have you booked some days off? Are you consuming any and all Cyberpunk media? What exactly have you been playing/watching? Or are you going in completely blind by not experiencing anything Cyberpunk-related? Let's debate!

Have you pre-ordered Cyberpunk 2077?

Are you consuming any and all Cyberpunk-related content? Or staying completely blind?

What are you watching and or playing to prepare for Cyberpunk 2077?

Have you taken days off work to play Cyberpunk 2077?

Since GPUs are out of the question this year, i am getting Creative SB AE-5 Plus to run Toslink to my Logitech Z906 to get the EPIC soundscape CB 2077 deserves. :D

I dont like this game because its a 1 person shooter I prefer 3 person games.
The only thing special about this game is Kenny Rivers

By sulking about not buying the game as I can't get my hands on an RTX 3080 or RX 6800XT GPU.

Your GPU (desktop version at least), matches the recommended requirements for the game. You can play it.

here's hoping it runs well on my rig at 1080p high (possibly no or minimum ray tracing)

Ok, I tried to change my 2080Ti SLI over to the 3090 which I now have and I see the same issue - hovering still shows the 2080Ti SLI. I think that would be because I didn't edit/rebuild the rig, but rather used the "edit" button on my profile next to the GPU. Did you do the same? I bet I'll have to do it the old-fashioned way for it to show up. It's a bug, I'd say.

Doing it the old-fashioned way worked. It's a bug in the system which I've reported.
You can change your rig HERE and it will then save properly :)

I never understood why so many people pre order games years/months ahead in general. Like what is the point ? It s not like you can play it you are just wasting money for no reason you might need it for something more important. If its just for the preorder bonuses or so you could download the game ahead than sure buy it a week or two ahead but there really isn t a reason to buy it months or years ahead. Personaly I ll wait a few weeks after its released avoiding videos etc.

You should pre order only when you are sure game will come out, so 1-2 weeks before release.Many people pre ordered months before release and got disappointed..

Nowadays you often get extra stuff, like skins. Sometimes they give a discount (like with Ghostrunner, that game had a 30% discount on preorder). Possibly also if you live on tight budgets throughout life because of little income, if you preorder the game while you have enough money, you don't have to think about having enough money for when the game is out. All in all, I think preordering is only for the enthusiasts that want the extras and just own a capable desktop that can always run launch titles on release day.

thats your rig, i5 4690k with gtx1080?
if so then idk how well would it run considering that that gtx1080s peformance is cripled to almost half, i was in similar situation with i5 6600k and gtx1080 and everyone was recommending me to upgrade but i keept refusing like the difference is not that big, untill my mobo died and i decided to sell i5 6600k and get i7 9700k peformance was doubled you can check comparison i made in one of my blogs, so i would recommend to atleast upgrade to 4th gen i7 as cheepest upgrade

I wonder how the performance difference is between an overclocked i5 4690k and an entry-level i7 4th gen. With the cpu-z benchmark, my i5 (oc'd to 4.4Ghz) beats the i7 by a little.

what do you mean by entry level i7?

For example, the 4th gen has 11 desktop variants of the i7. With entry-level, I mean the cheapest available (at launch). At this point, the i7 4770 would be the cheapest used market upgrade (as many people bought those).

you could get something like rx 570 for pretty cheap (I got a 4GB one for my other PC for 100$, new) and play at 1080p since 1080p to 2160p should scale nicely, just add a bit of sharpening and that's it.

I pushed it as much as I could. 4.6 Ghz and even after overclocking the ram (which helped quite significantly) it still bottlenecks my Titan in cpu heavy games. Im planning on upgrading to Ryzen soon

The titan is a whole different story though. Much bigger beast than expected. In gpu based benchmarks I'm getting better scores than most 3070s

The notion of preparing to play some game feels pretty strange to me. Taking days off work to play a game, and game, seems absolutely ridiculous.
I don't doubt it's going to be a good game, and I'll very likely play it at some point, but I'm in no rush to do so. I don't have to play it immediately, nor do I really want to.

The way i see it, us preparing to play the game and taking off days to play the game is no different from people who prepare for and take days off for things like the super bowl in America and Championship in European football

I disagree and there's a very simple reason for it - games are always available!
Superbowl happens once a year, every one is different and you can't experience it after it's gone. Same with football, live concerts, etc. Even when you meet up with friends - you have to plan ahead around other people. A blasted game? It'll be there for you to fully experience at your own convenience 24/7/365. It's as far from "the same" as it can be.

Unless you're talking about watching those on TV vs going to see them in person - then it's closer, IF you can get a hold of the recording and depending on whether it's a part of a social event (watching with a bunch of buddies, in a bar/pub, etc).

As I mentioned - the Superbowl is often also watched by a lot of people in groups of friends and families hanging out together, people make it into a social event, much like football here in the UK or basketball in Lithuania. In those cases - you do need to plan around and it's a solid excuse, IMO. Playing a game? Sorry, can't see it. Unless you have a desperate need to post videos online for those 10 views that they're gonna get vs the big/established channels or if you must blab into the void of twitter. But that's just sad.
