The official launch trailer for Cyberpunk 2077 is now live ahead of the game’s release tomorrow, December 10.

Cyberpunk 2077 reviews called it buggy, but how will it be at launch?

The official launch trailer for Cyberpunk 2077 is now live ahead of the game's release tomorrow, December 10. Compared to the edgier, grittier and action-packed trailers for Cyberpunk 2077 seen so far, this takes a more mature and sombre tone, heightened by the song playing over it, a cover of Samurai song 'Never Fade Away', performed by P. The trailer is light on specific plot details, focusing instead of some moody close-ups on a number of key characters you'll meet in Night City. The underlying message, which more neatly fits into how player choice affects your story in Cyberpunk 2077, comes from fixer Dexter DeShawn who asks, "Would you rather live in peace as Mr. Nobody, or go down for all times in a blaze of glory?" It's no long at all before you'll be able to step into Night City, although Johnny Silverhand is on hand to tell PC players who pre-loaded the game from GOG to go back to sleep via a pretty fun Easter egg. Better still, every copy of Cyberpunk 2077 can also be connected to GOG Galaxy for additional digital goodies and in-game items.

Reviews for Cyberpunk 2077 are here (well not here, because CD Projekt Red didn't give us it) and everyone agrees: the game is well buggy. Will this be fixed by the time the game comes out on Thursday and we can all play? Various vague statements from CDPR say they've fixed some stuff for a launch patch, but it's not clear if it's, like, solid. As I say, we've not been blessed with early access to the game ourselves, but really: every review I've read calls out an unexpected and unpleasant quantity of bugs. PCG's review noted that a huge patch dropped in the middle of the process, which fixed some issues but not nearly enough, and CDPR told them another patch was coming.

CD Projekt Red certainly seem to be plugging away, but how much will they actually fix by launch? While CDPR haven't made a formal public response to bug concerns, the game's German PR fella has been tweeting about issues. He said yesterday that "a bunch of issues reviewers encountered (and reported) have been fixed already", and "some more" will be addressed in the launch update. In response to a question about issues and performance, particularly when using RTX, he replied: "It's mainly streaming issues – when the settings are too high for your setup the game is unable to stream the content and stuff starts to go missing (animations, audio, lipsync, objects). The site removed the numbers by CDPR's request, because they might not represent the state of the game at launch.

I still intend to buy Cyberpunk but, after reading reviews, I have made alternate plans for Thursday. Instead of leaping in at launch and potentially getting frustrated, I'd rather wait for a patch or two (if necessary) and only start when it's in good shape. CD Projekt Red will add an epilepsy warning to Cyberpunk 2077 and has promised "a more permanent solution" will arrive "as soon as possible". The game, which releases tomorrow (December 10), currently includes a section where the player character has a helmet with flashing strobe lights placed on their head. Since the game is played in first person, these lights cover the screen.

We're working on adding a separate warning in the game, aside from the one that exists in the EULA (). Prior to CDPR's statement, UK charity Epilepsy Action called for an immediate change to the sequence, telling Video Game Chronicle in a statement: "We are alarmed and saddened that a game reviewer had a seizure triggered by Cyberpunk 2077, before it was even launched. These features are unsafe and should have been avoided to make the game more accessible." Cyberpunk 2077 launches worldwide tomorrow, on PC, Xbox, PlayStation, and Stadia. GAMERS are anxiously awaiting the release of Cyberpunk 2077 - the upcoming role playing action game from the creators of The Witcher 3. According to the manufacturers "Cyberpunk 2077 is an open-world, action-adventure story set in Night City, a megalopolis obsessed with power, glamour and body modification." Understandably fans are anxious for all the latest news, reviews and details of where they can pick up the game, which stars Hollywood legend Keanu Reeves. Lucky for you, we'll have ALL the very latest news and information ahead of its release tomorrow - December 10. Follow our live blog below for the very latest news and information on Cyberpunk 2077. CD Projekt Red vows Cyberpunk 2077 will get a warning after epilepsy risk warning CD Projekt Red has responded to concerns over certain aspects of 'Cyberpunk 2077' being a potential epilepsy risk. The studio has responded after Game Informer's reviewer branded the game a potential risk based on a pre-release copy of the game, and the company has now commented on social media following the site's PSA on the issue. We're working on adding a separate warning in the game, aside from the one that exists in the EULA. "Regarding a more permanent solution, Dev team is currently exploring that and will be implementing it as soon as possible." In the EULA, gamers are given a seizure warning regarding the title. The note reads: "'Cyberpunk 2077' may contain flashing lights and images, which may induce epileptic seizures. "If you or anyone in your household has an epileptic condition, please consult your doctor before playing 'Cyberpunk 2077'. However, the Epilepsy Action charity has urged CD Projekt Red to take further action to make the game "more accessible". The organisation's spokesperson Louise Cousins said: "These features are unsafe and should have been avoided to make the game more accessible. "With huge demand and excitement building for its release, it may pose a serious risk to people with photosensitive epilepsy. "The developers CD Projekt RED should consider how they can update the game to make it safer.
