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.
Yesterday was the first episode of the Cyberpunk 2077 Night City Wire stream, which gave us a brand new trailer, and some fresh gameplay showing off a new feature called Braindance. But that’s not all, as CD Projekt Red also released about 15 minutes of extra gameplay footage for us to gawk at which showed off some more combat, dialogue, and even some driving around in Night City. 
CD Projekt Red just aired the Night City Wire Episode 1 livestream of Cyberpunk 2077, and with it came a bunch of new juicy stuff to look at. Not only did we get a brand new trailer to gawk at, but there was also some fresh new gameplay shown off with a new feature called “Braindance” which allows players to experience the memories of others and even interact with the environment. This certainly helps take the edge off of the recent launch date delay again.
After the recent delay that saw Cyberpunk 2077’s release date pushed back a second time, it’s nice to at least get a glimpse at some more gameplay, and lucky for us that’s exactly what’s happening later during the Night City Wire livestream which will begin at 9am Pacific Time, 12pm Eastern Time, and 6pm CEST.
One of the most anticipated games of the year just got delayed again for a second time, but the developers have assured that the full game is done now, all that it needs is some extra polish to make sure it’s mostly bug free at launch. That doesn’t mean press events aren’t continuing on though, as the latest Chinese press event for Cyberpunk 2077 has revealed that it might just include VR support after all.
