Cyberpunk 2077 First Console Footage for Xbox Series X and Xbox One X Revealed
Cyberpunk 2077 gameplay for both Xbox platforms has finally arrived and it still looks pretty darn sleek.
We’ve seen a fair amount of gameplay for Cyberpunk 2077 over the years at this point, but we still have yet to see what the game will look like running on consoles. Fortunately, that dry spell has now ended with CD Projekt Red now giving us a look at the highly-anticipated RPG on Xbox.
Without warning, CDPR today released a new “special” episode of Night City Wire, which is the ongoing video series dedicated to all things Cyberpunk 2077. This edition solely focused on highlighting the first console gameplay footage that we have seen, specifically on the Xbox Series X and Xbox One X platforms. The video which we were shown lasted about ten minutes and highlighted a number of different aspects of Cyberpunk 2077. Some of these included combat, dialogue with other characters, and simply driving around Night City.
All things considered, Cyberpunk 2077 looked really solid on both platforms. Xbox One X, in particular, looked pretty sleek despite being last-gen hardware at this point. It’s also important to note, however, that the Xbox Series X footage we were shown was not the game’s iteration that is optimized specifically for the new console. CD Projekt Red has said that this optimization patch for next-gen consoles will be coming in 2021, meaning that what we’re seeing here is essentially the XBO version running on the hardware. Despite this, you could still tell that it looked sharper compared to the Xbox One X version.
If you’d like to see the new gameplay footage in total, you can find the accompanying video down below. This is only the first bit of new footage we’ll be seeing this week as well, as another Night City Wire stream is set to occur on Thursday, November 19.
As for Cyberpunk 2077 itself, the game will be releasing in a few short weeks on PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S, PC, and Stadia on December 10.
