Today Cyberpunk 2077 came on the market. The developer CD Projekt has published further statements on both the day-one patch and the epilepsy issue.
CD Projekt once again pointed out that Cyberpunk 2077 should not be started without a Day One patch. During the week, the company spoke of a “completely different” game after the update.
The following applies to console gamers: If you bought the digital PS4 version, you get the complete package. The game and the patch come to a total of 110 GB. The preload was offered a few days ago . The 110 GB apparently also apply to the disk version, as Fabian Mario Döhla makes clear in a tweet.
[2/2] Boxed copies (retail): On PC and Xbox it will download 2 in 1 – game & patch. Around 60gigs on PC and 70/75 on X1
PlayStation: game and patch will download separately (around 110 gigs in total).
Apologies for not answering to all the DMs. It‘s soooo many of them.

It remains to be seen whether the Day One patch will solve all noteworthy problems. A Twitter user reports that, despite the patch installation, he recorded further inadequacies. So far these are of course only individual opinions. If you are already playing Cyberpunk 2077 on the PS4 or Xbox One (or on the new consoles): How satisfied are you with the given performance?
In the past few days there has been a warning that Cyberpunk 2077 could become a problem for gamers prone to epilepsy. For example, the appearance of Johnny Silverhand causes a blue flicker, while the so-called braindances seem to be even more problematic. To do this, V puts on a headset, which creates an effect of rapidly flashing LEDs.
“Thank you for bringing this up. 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,” said the game’s official Twitter account.

If you are one of those players who have problems with scenes that show lights flickering and flashing quickly, closing your eyes could be a quick help. Lowering the monitor brightness should also bring relief.
Cyberpunk 2077 was released today for PS4, Xbox One and PC. The console versions can also be played on the PS5 and Xbox Series X/S thanks to backward compatibility. The New Gen versions will follow in the coming year.
