The future is finally here ,and there’s no turning back. With Cyberpunk 2077 reviews now live and pre-downloads set, delays are a thing of the past. Night City, here we come.
Well, in three days anyway – the official worldwide release date still set for December 10. Yet, for those who purchased Cyberpunk through GOG, a subsidiary of CD Project Red itself, players can pre-download the game and open up the application for a pleasant surprise.
Pre-loads on the GOG’s Galaxy launcher kicked off this morning at 6am ET, 3am PT, and 12pm CEM, with Steam and Epic Games Store users not far along behind them five hours later. PlayStation users will have to wait until December 8 to pre-download Cyberpunk 2077, unfortunately, whereas Xbox players got it a bit earlier than most. The nearly 70GB PC download, which will probably be much larger with the day one patch, comes with a bit of a surprise for those antsy few attempting to dive headlong into Night City a bit early.
The cheeky response comes in the form of a wide wallpaper from the scene wherein V wakes up to Johnny Silverhand, first shown to the world in a cinematic trailer at last year’s E3 event. Instead of that now-iconic line by the one and only Keanu Reeves, it now merely reads Johnny’s dialogue as, “Go back to sleep, Samurai. It’s not December 10th yet!”
Some lucky few will be playing Cyberpunk 2077 a bit early, as a simultaneous global release on PC allows those in specific time zones a couple hours of hands-on before all get to enjoy this highly anticipated experience. With that bright yellow hue now imprinted into the backs of our minds, so much so that it brings immediate terror to our hearts for fear of yet another delay, we can finally breathe a sigh of relief. It’s safe to assume Cyberpunk 2077’s release is cemented, and Night City’s skyline pokes cleanly off in the distant horizon.
