Cyberpunk 2077, CD Projekt Red’s troubled RPG, is finally back on the PlayStation Store.
After the initial launch and plethora of last-gen console bugs, the PlayStation 4 version of Cyberpunk 2077 was pulled from Sony’s online storefront back in December 2020. Now, after around six months of work it seems that the Samurai is back. This return to sale on the PlayStation owned digital shopfront means that anybody who wants to grab a copy of CD Projekt Red’s latest can do so for $49.99 / £39.99 or local equivalent. This should also allow anybody with a Playstation5 to pick up the digital download and step into night City for the first time.
However, this update does come with a major caveat. While CD Projekt Red has been hard at work trying to fix bugs and clean up a messy launch, CD Projekt Red issued a stark warning to players eager to become a Corpo. CD Projekt Red noted that:
Users may continue to experience some performance issues with the PS4 edition while CD Projekt Red further works to improve stability across all platforms. Playing on PS4 Pro and PS5 will provide the best Cyberpunk 2077 experience on PlayStation.
This note accurately reflects our experience with Cyberpunk 2077, powering through the streets of this sprawling urban cityscape without the same level of game-breaking slow down and NPC issues that last-gen early adopters seemed to see.
Anybody lucky enough to have a Playstation 5 will also get some added extras if they choose to buy in now. A free PlayStation 5 upgrade for the game will be coming in the second half of 2021 — and will be available for all owners of the PlayStation 4 version of Cyberpunk 2077, including both digital and disc. The upgrade will allow the title to take full advantage of the new console’s more powerful hardware, although we don’t exactly know what that means quite yet.
If you want to get Cyberpunk, then you can head over to the PlayStation Store now.
