There are many games that are released for the audience. From conventional games to modern shooting games, these games entertain users on a different level. Today, in this article, we are going to discuss one such game that has finally arrived and is a buzz in the gaming world. The name of this game is Cyberpunk 2077. We are going to discuss Cyberpunk 2077 requirements as well as the specifications that are widely required to play the game.
Cyberpunk 2077 is finally out, after being awaited by fans for eight whole years! The first teaser of the game was revealed back in 2012, subsequently, a short teaser was released after a year, which did nothing to help the fans’ enthusiasm. Thereafter, about two years ago the game was displayed for the first time at E3 2018, and that has kept the fans waiting patiently and keenly for the game.
The game was finally released on Thursday, December 10. Cyberpunk 2077 has overall received very positive reviews, though there are some things you should be aware of before you purchase the freshly-released game— that is if you haven’t pre-booked it already.
Cyberpunk 2077 is releasing on PlayStation 4, PC, Xbox One, and Stadia as well. But don’t worry if you have the latest versions of these platforms, as it will run on the next-generation PlayStation 5 and the Xbox Series X/S as well. The task of fine-tuning the game for all these platforms is what had caused the latest delay in the game’s official release.

Cyberpunk 2077 Reviews and Its Bugs
CD Projekt Red lifted the review restraint on Monday night and aggregators like Metacritic and OpenCritic gave it a whopping 91 out of 100 average scores and 92 out of 100 respectively. As the averages suggest, the PC reviews are fairly positive but the game has various, numerous bugs of speckled severity.
While the game has gained reviews with all sorts of adjectives ranging from ‘fantastic’ to ‘dazzling’ the reviewers have detected several bugs like scripting issues which impact the NPCs, enemies may see through the walls, floating weapons, sound mixing bugs, reloading the game doesn’t precisely restore the game state, and many more as picked up by Windowscentral.
Fortunately, CD Projekt Red’s Fabian Mario Döhla tweeted about how the company is well aware of the aforementioned bugs and how a bunch of issues which the reviewers encountered (and reported) has been fixed already, while some more are part of the update.
This tweet has shone through like a knight in shining armor for new players or for those who are waiting for it to be fixed.
Also, the developers of Cyberpunk 2077 have announced that they are working on adding a separate epilepsy warning in the game, besides the one which is already present in the EULA. They also specified that the team is working for a more permanent solution and that it will be implemented as soon as possible.
Furthermore, there is also a ‘streamer mode’ fitted in the game. This mode will specifically help the gamers with disabling copyright strikes, which will help the gamers stream whichever music they like without worrying about playing music that is owned by someone else.
Cyberpunk 2077 Gameplay
Marked by its six separate regions, Cyberpunk 2077 is set in the dystopian Night City. The gamers will have to take control of the character ‘V’, who is a covetous desperado whose decisive goal is to acquire a prototype implantable chip which is a key to immortality. As the character, you will have to take on commercial leaders, secretive hustlers, and everyone in between— these game choices will directly affect how your story unravels.
The character of V is as customizable as it comes. You can easily opt for the gender of your character, select your custom hairdo, what clothing you want V to wear, and you can even fiddle around with the body type of your character with the help of body type settings to find the right match for yourself.
You also have various options of several character classes to choose from, which entails the NetRunner who is very proficient in hacking, Techie who is suitable with machinery, and Solo if you prefer gore with all the guns blazing and the whole caboodle. Each class will bring its own set of uniqueness and customizations with gameplay styles. As the game proceeds, you can buy various augmentations that will add new aptitudes and improve those who already exist, which can result in you turning a ‘living weapon’ with all of these new assets.
The game has a bunch of various other things to offer apart from story missions. The open world of Night City does entail several side missions, gang scuffles, and activities that can keep you eventful for hours. In a recent panel discussion, the senior expedition designer said that the main story of Cyberpunk 2077 is slightly shorter than their previous game ‘The Witcher 3’. Fun fact: Wild Hunt takes approximately fifty hours to complete, that too only if the player doesn’t get distracted by the side quests!
I am sure the one question that kept making the gears in your head work even at nightfall was definitely: where does Keanu Reeves fit in?
As you proceed in the story, your character— V— will sooner or later come across a prototype biochip that they slot in their head to save the chip from getting corrupted. This chip stores the digitized soul of Johnny Silverhand (Reeves), who is portrayed as a compelling and charismatic rebel rocker who is now looking for vengeance. A behind the scenes trailer displays Reeves being all hands-on during the motion capture sessions for Silverhand and how he got to play the same character in various ways to keep up with the game’s multiple-choice gameplay.
If all the action unraveling gets too much for you to stomach then you can easily take a break. You can always frivolously roam around the Night City in ultramodern vehicles or partake in one of the many side activities which are speckled around throughout the open-world map, the list of activities also entail riding on a roller coaster ride!
That was all about Cyberpunk 2077 pc requirements! The game is indeed a special one and all the gamers are pretty excited about this one. We have discussed the requirements in this article. We hope this article served its purpose and will help you in gaining the insights required to play the game.
