game news Cyberpunk 2077: Waiting two years to play it on PS5 was my best decision
The release of Cyberpunk 2077 on December 10, 2020 was messy to say the least…to say the least. With the exception of the PC version, which also suffered from several bugs, CD Projekt RED’s RPG has technically failed to deliver on its promises to the point of its removal from the PlayStation Store. Pourtant, mois après mois, mises à jour après mises à jour, CP 2077 s’est nettement amélioré et est devenu une petite merveille sur PlayStation 5 et Xbox Series X. Attendre deux ans pour y jouer sur PS5 fut mameilleure joue de dé far away !

In short, Cyberpunk 2077
Cyberpunk 2077 is A first-person RPG (RPG) developed by CD Projekt RED It remains to this day one of the most ambitious video game projects of the 21st century. It is above all an adaptation on PC and home consoles (PS4, PS5, Xbox One and Xbox Series X/S) of the tabletop role-playing game conceived by Mike Pondsmith and very popular in North America. In fact, when it was released in 1988, the latter democratized a sci-fi subgenre… Cyberpunk… along with the novel Neuromancer by William Gibson (1984) and Blade Runner by Ridley Scott (1982). Just that!
We follow the adventures of a citizen born and raised in Night City, a free city located on the border between Northern and Southern California, both member states of the New United States of America (NUSA). Cyberpunk 2077 continues the events in successive editions of the “paper” role-playing game It takes place three decades after the fourth edition of Cyberpunk Red which takes place in the year 2045. From a purely gaming point of view, CD Projekt Red is an RPG with rich and intertwined gameplay mechanics, refining a universe that abounds as much with its visuals as through Its multicultural inspiration.
2020: Chaotic Launch
Unless you’ve lived as a hermit or gone on a pilgrimage for the past couple of years, you’re familiar with the setbacks Cyberpunk 2077 faced when it was released in December 2021. If the PC version generated a certain enthusiasm among gamers, provided that many recurring bugs hid, It was a completely different ball game for the console versions. Barely passable, but playable on PS4 Pro and Xbox One X, CD Projekt RED title was a shadow of earlier 8th generation machines. The controversy was so strong that Sony made the decision to pull the game from the PlayStation Store for some time, a great precedent in the history of the online store, and therefore in video games.
The launch of Cyberpunk 2077 was a touchy thing, and the lack of communication from Polish studios regarding pre-release console releases only added to players’ legitimate dissatisfaction. but, Ten days later, CD Projekt RED announced that it had sold 13 million copies (including 10.9 million immaterial) of the futuristic RPG, even the latter was profitable on day one thanks to pre-orders estimated at 8 million units…a real run. In the spring of 2022, no fewer than 18 million copies of The Adventures of the V Company were found on its takers. We briefly mentioned the PC, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 4 Pro, Xbox One, Xbox One X versions… and the next generation in all of this?
2022: Everything comes on time…
…for someone who knows how to wait. Initially promised in 2021, the next generation update much awaited by gamers finally arrives on February 15, 2022 and turns disaster into victory (some might say a little late). for simplicity, The 1.5 patch is a real boon for PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X/S owners. Cyberpunk 2077 is almost unrecognizable and has (finally) become a title worthy of the new generation of consoles. Along with Performance and Ray Tracing modes, which can certainly be appreciated, it is Night City that appears enhanced and becomes before our eyes this dystopian reality imagined by author Mike Pondsmith and designed by CD Projekt Red artists and technicians. !!! Spoiler alert!!! You started roaming the city and making V the legendary Edgerunner.
This sprawling, multicultural city with endless opportunities is now a street scene where thousands/millions of citizens go about their business and live their lives. How about a large number of bugs that can ruin your gaming experience? cleaned up. Night City’s miserable streets have never been so “clean” and neat. So yeah, I agree, console players had to wait 14 months to enjoy Cyberpunk 2077 in the best conditions on PS5 and Xbox Series. Personally, I patiently endured my problems for another six months, just to make the fun last. Don’t we say “the longer, the better”? In short, This RPG was launched in a very rich cyberpunk world and now lives up to the hopes we’ve placed in it since it was announced in 2013. Some like to think of patience as a virtue. Cyberpunk 2077 is proof of that!
