While players on the PC and PlayStation still have to be patient, the action RPG Cyberpunk 2077 has already started the preload on the Xbox One as well as the Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S. CD Projekt has announced the download schedule for the game via the short message service Twitter.
Preload first on Microsoft Xbox
Those who pre-order Cyberpunk 2077 for Xbox One and the Xbox Series X / S can already download the game content so that they can start the world of Night City punctually on December 10th. On the PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5, the preload is due to start on December 8th at an as yet unknown time.
PC players, on the other hand, can start downloading the day before on December 7th from 12 noon via GOG.com and from 5 pm on Steam and the Epic Games Store.
For PC and Stadia players, the release is simultaneous and scheduled for midnight GMT, and for all console players – midnight local time.
Cyberpunk 2077 can be played from December 10th at 1 a.m. Central European Time on PC and Google Stadia and an hour beforehand on PlayStation and Xbox.
No information about Day-One-Patch
Meanwhile, there is still uncertainty about the existence and size of a possible day-one patch. Only one 43.5 GB patch for the Xbox has already been confirmed that HDR and various performance and quality modes will be integrated into the game.
A next-gen patch for Cyberpunk 2077, which is specifically aimed at the performance of the PC as well as the Xbox Series X and PlayStation 5, is not due to appear until the course of 2021.
