The new Cyberpunk 2077 trailer may have been the biggest winner at Microsoft’s E3 press conference. It is not just because Johnny Mnemonic himself, Keanu Reeves, was there to talk about it.
Cyberpunk’s presentation also revealed the release date – November 19, 2020. They also announced that the game is now available to pre-order.
You have a few options when it comes to pre-ordering the game. It’s available on PC, PS4, and Xbox One, with a Standard Edition and a Collector’s Edition for each.
The content of both the Standard Edition and Collector’s Edition was leaked before the show. However, we now have confirmation that the leaks were real.
One thing everyone should know: The game’s official pre-order site is only selling the Digital Standard Edition outside of Poland at this time. You can pre-order the other editions. However, the official website now includes links to purchase the physical versions in the United States.
To do pre-order, you will have to buy directly from retailers. We have included the relevant links below.
Cyberpunk 2077 Standard Edition
Most Standard Editions come with the game, and perhaps with an in-game pre-order bonus if you’re lucky. CD Projekt Red does things a little differently. As in the case of The Witcher 3, the Cyberpunk 2077 Standard Edition is packed with extras.
Besides the game, you’ll receive a case with a reversible cover, a compendium of details about the world and the tradition of Cyberpunk, postcards and a map of Night City. They also include a pack of stickers.
On the digital side, you’ll receive copies of the game’s soundtrack, an art booklet, the Cyberpunk 2020 rulebook (the board game Cyberpunk 2077 is based on), and a pack of desktop and mobile wallpapers. It is solid enough to be a Standard Edition.
The Standard Edition will cost $ 59.99 on all platforms.
- The PS4 physical edition is available at Gamestop and BestBuy.
- The Xbox One Physical Edition is available at Gamestop and BesBuy.
Cyberpunk 2077 Collector’s Edition
Pre-ordering the Collector’s Edition will earn you even more loot. Along with everything that appears in the Standard Edition, you will receive a lot of extras.
The big ones are a collector’s edition box. It resembles a stack of futuristic hardware, a steel case, a 10-inch figurine of the game’s protagonist jumping from a motorcycle, a hardcover art book, and a copy of Night City Visitor’s Guide.
It appears to be an expanded version of the Standard Edition Compendium. Plus, you’ll receive a set of metal pins, a metal keychain, and a few embroidered patches to fix your favorite turtleneck.
The Collector’s Edition will cost $ 249.99 on all platforms.
- The PS4 edition is available at Gamestop and BestBuy.
- The Xbox One edition is available at Gamestop and BestBuy.
Cyberpunk 2077 is CD Projekt RED’s upcoming open-world sci-fi RPG. It is going to launch in September 2020.
If you’ve been waiting to pre-order one of the most anticipated games of the year, it is the time to do so. The physical PS4, Xbox One, and PC versions of Cyberpunk 2077 have a $ 10 discount right now on Amazon, bringing their price up to $49.99 once you toss it into your digital shopping cart.
What PC do I need to play Cyberpunk 2077?
There is no doubt. We are facing something massive. So much so that I think Cyberpunk 2077 has been developed with NVIDIA’s 30 series RTX in mind.
It is a generation of graphics cards that, in theory, will multiply Turing’s performance in ray tracing. Therefore, it will be able to work “optimally” with said technology applied in a “global” way. Keep in mind that we are still talking about hybrid rendering (rasterization, AI, and ray tracing).
We cannot assess the performance of a generation of graphics cards that do not yet exist. Still, I wanted to make that reference so that you take into account that it is likely that we can only play Cyberpunk 2077 in a fully optimal way with a 30 series RTX unless we don’t mind disabling ray tracing.
Do you think I’m exaggerating? Not at all, remember that to play Cyberpunk 2077 with ray tracing fully activated and at maximum quality maintaining 60 FPS, it was necessary to reduce the resolution to 1080p and enable DLSS 2.0 technology from NVIDIA. This intelligent rescaling can reduce native resolution up to 540p and rescale from there to 1,920 x 1,080 pixels. The graphics card used with those settings was an RTX 2080 Ti, the most powerful NVIDIA has right now.
