Cyberpunk 2077 Xbox Sequence X Evaluation: Nonetheless Flawed, however a Step Ahead


How does Cyberpunk 2077 carry out on a next-gen console just like the Xbox Sequence X? We already instructed you the sport is a catastrophe on the PlayStation 4. On the Xbox One X, it is — unsurprisingly, given it is a half-gen improve — a step ahead, however it nonetheless falls wanting what you’d anticipate. In case you’re among the many 160-million-plus current-gen console house owners who have been hoping to get pleasure from The Witcher Three developer CD Projekt Purple’s newest title at launch, you have basically been left hanging proper now. However we additionally tried out the sport on the Xbox Sequence X and have been capable of evaluate the experiences.

There’s at the moment no native model of Cyberpunk 2077 for next-gen consoles (that is PS5 and Sequence X). That may solely be accessible — as a free improve for individuals who purchased it on PS4 or Xbox One — someday in 2021, CD Projekt Purple has acknowledged. For now, Cyberpunk 2077 runs on each PlayStation 5 and the Xbox Sequence consoles because of backward compatibility help.

The Xbox Sequence X has an additional Cyberpunk 2077 function that no different console does. Within the sport’s settings part on Microsoft’s strongest console, you may discover a “Video” tab, one that’s not accessible on different consoles, solely on PC. There, you possibly can select between two modes: “Efficiency” or “High quality”. Although CD Projekt Purple does not state the variations, going by different video games that additionally supply this, it is truthful to imagine that one prioritises body charge (60fps / unlocked) and the opposite focuses on decision. Digital Foundry’s technical evaluation of Cyberpunk 2077 confirms as a lot.

That is curious as a result of Cyberpunk 2077 is at the moment not “Optimised for Xbox Sequence X|S”. Which means whenever you play the sport on Xbox Sequence X, you are basically getting the Xbox One X model — however it seems higher as a result of it has extra uncooked energy and a few cool {hardware} tips. The “Video” tab isn’t accessible on the Xbox One X, although this was a part of the promise when these half-gen upgrades have been launched. And plenty of video games (for instance, Forza Horizon 4 and Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order) have delivered on mentioned promise, letting Xbox One X house owners decide between efficiency or high quality.

On Xbox One X, Cyberpunk 2077 is seemingly locked right into a efficiency mode, and but, efficiency remains to be removed from acceptable. Whereas many different video games have both delivered clean efficiency or 4K decision on the Xbox One X, Cyberpunk 2077 appears to be caught in a no man’s land. It does not really feel prefer it’s working at a relentless 30fps (at instances, it hangs and freezes for milliseconds) and nor does it go anyplace near 2160p, the latter confirmed by Digital Foundry. That is disappointing, as a result of Cyberpunk 2077 is technically an “Xbox One X Enhanced” title.

The sport seems and performs a lot better on the Xbox Sequence X. Within the “Efficiency” mode, Cyberpunk 2077 gameplay is clean and feels prefer it’s hovering round 60fps. And on the “High quality” mode, Cyberpunk 2077 lastly looks like a contemporary sport and never a relic from the full-HD period. I am not wholly impressed with the graphics — there are plenty of belongings however element could be missing, I felt — and it is not one thing that wows me, as I would anticipate a next-gen sport to. Nevertheless it’s price remembering that Cyberpunk 2077 is not a next-gen sport, that is simply backward compatibility. In case you’re fortunate sufficient to get your arms on an Xbox Sequence X, that is how you need to play Cyberpunk 2077.

In fact, it is not with out points. Aside from the muddled and flat textures I spoke of, there are some aliasing or pop-in troubles with Cyberpunk 2077 graphics on Xbox Sequence X. This was most clear within the case of the pedestrian crossings, with the sides of yellow stripes seemingly transferring as I panned the in-game digicam. And naturally, that is nothing to say of the various visible bugs that plague each model of Cyberpunk 2077. Simply as with my expertise on the PlayStation 4, I bumped into floating weapons and was unable to select up loot, irrespective of how a lot I modified my place. The latter is at instances caused by enemy our bodies pilling on high of one another. Besides the our bodies merge into each other on Cyberpunk 2077.

CD Projekt Purple has admitted that it “ignored” PS4 and Xbox One variations and that it was “too targeted” on PC and next-gen. It clearly wanted extra time for the sport to be prepared for the world’s hottest consoles, and it has mentioned as a lot. However my expertise with Cyberpunk 2077 on the Xbox One X and Xbox Sequence X exhibits that there isn’t a splendid method to play the sport on consoles proper now. Sure, it is a lot better than what PS4 and Xbox One house owners should put up with. For them, it looks like a case of GTA IV’s PC port, besides in reverse, as a result of consoles are the issue right here.

However with next-gen consoles nonetheless arduous to get — the PS5 hasn’t even launched in India — and PC builds highly effective sufficient to run the sport at 4K additionally dealing with availability points for components (to not point out excessive prices), it does not appear to be most individuals will be capable of play a suitable model of Cyberpunk 2077 for a while.

Cyberpunk 2077 is on the market worldwide on PC, PS4, Stadia, and Xbox One. Additionally it is playable on PS5 and Xbox Sequence S/X. On PC, it prices Rs. 2,499 on Amazon and Video games The Store, Rs. 2,999 on Epic Video games Retailer, and $43 (about Rs. 3,160) on CD Projekt Purple-owned Cyberpunk 2077 is priced at Rs. 3,490 on Microsoft Retailer, Rs. 3,499 on PlayStation Retailer, and Rs. 3,999 on disc.
