Cyberpunk To Give Xbox Gamers A Free [NEW] Upgrade
Cyberpunk 2077 on PS5 and Xbox Series X/S will be a free upgrade for everyone who purchased a copy of the respective PS4 and Xbox One editions. It was originally planned for release this year but was understandably delayed considering how bugged and broken the last-gen versions were at launch.
You can also upgrade to PS5 versions if you have a physical PS4 game, as long as you bought the PS5 with a disc drive. You'll always need to use the PS4 disc to play the PS5 version; upgrading doesn't get you a free digital copy of the game. You'll still download the PS5 update from the PSN, but you won't need a PS5-specific disc -- your PS4 one will become an authenticator.
Sony initially said 2022 exclusive Horizon Forbidden West wouldn't let you upgrade from the PS4 to the PS5 version for free unless you bought the more expensive Digital Deluxe, Collector's or Regalla Edition. It later reversed course, saying anyone who bought the PS4 version would be entitled to a free PS5 upgrade.
Patch 1.5 adds ray-traced local light shadows, smooth gameplay at 60fps with dynamic 4K scaling and DualSense haptic feedback to the game for PS5 and Xbox Series X gamers, as well as platform-agnostic improvements like "various improvements to the game, numerous quest, and gameplay fixes, as well as a number of free DLC."
It's worth noting that the Cyberpunk 2077 next-gen upgrade will be free if you already own the game on last-gen consoles. When originally confirming the Xbox Series X Cyberpunk 2077 upgrade, CD Projekt Red said (via Twitter (opens in new tab)) that "gamers should never be forced to purchase the same game twice or pay for upgrades," and we've seen nothing to indicate that's going to change.
"Earlier in the year we announced that if you pick up Cyberpunk 2077 on Xbox One you'll be able to play it on Xbox Series X when the console launches," the stream states. "If you pick up Cyberpunk 2077 on PS4, you'll also be able to play it on PS5 when the console launches. And that's not all. There will be a free upgrade for Xbox Series X and PS5, but we'll have more details on that soon."
CD Projekt Red announced via Twitter that it has an Xbox Series X upgrade of Cyberpunk 2077 in the works. It also said that when it's ready, gamers who already purchased the title for Xbox One will get it for free. "Gamers should never be forced to purchase the same game twice or pay for upgrades," the developer said. "Owners of Cyberpunk 2077 will receive the Xbox Series X upgrade for free when it is available."
Quick, everyone act surprised! CD Projekt Red has confirmed that Cyberpunk 2077's free Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S upgrade is available TODAY, and you can start downloading it right now. It clocks in at around a whopping 62GB.
"Xbox One players will be able to upgrade to the next-gen version of this completely original open-world survival adventure game for free. Xbox Series X users will be able to choose between 4K or Ray Tracing functions (Ray Tracing unavailable on Xbox Series S)."
I bought the Witcher 3 goty for a shockingly low 6.99 in anticipation of the upgrade...I completed the base game on release ...but being goty edition It gives me extra incentive because they are separate achievements aswell
Cue a lot of disgruntled customers that cannot access the shiny new version of the game on their new-gen consoles because they can't find the upgrade option on the PlayStation or Xbox storefronts in their region. For those affected, the upgrade is either locked or showing up a paid upgrade (when the new-gen versions should be free to anyone that already owns the game).
For players on Xbox Series XS and PlayStation 5, Patch 1.5 marks the introduction of a dedicated next-gen version of the game featuring enhancements like dynamic 4K scaling and ray-tracing features on Xbox Series X and PlayStation 5, faster loading times, and better reflections, among others. All of this, fueled by the extra power of next-gen hardware, is available to owners of the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One version of Cyberpunk 2077 via a free upgrade.
Furthermore, this latest update also comes with new pieces of free additional content that expands what Cyberpunk 2077 has to offer gamers: rentable apartments featuring unique player character interactions, fresh weapons and gear, new customization options, and more.
But what happens when developers release a game for the Xbox One X Well, the Smart Delivery feature means you can enjoy games like Cyberpunk 2077 on the Xbox One X, as well as a free upgrade to the Xbox Series X. Whether you have a physical or digital copy of the game, all you need to do is launch it on your Xbox One or Series XS console, and the best version will be installed for you. When the optimized version is released, the backward-compatible version will automatically be replaced.
Tying in with the latest Xbox Series X details, Cyberpunk 2077 developer CD Projekt Red has confirmed that the game will be coming to next-gen systems -- in a way, at least. The gist of it is that if you buy Cyberpunk 2077 on Xbox One, you'll be able to upgrade the title for free on Xbox Series X. Based on the company's tweet, we assume that the same will apply to the PlayStation 4 version of the release once the PlayStation 5 hits later this year.
"Gamers should never be forced to purchase the same game twice or pay for upgrades," writes the official Cyberpunk 2077 Twitter account. "Owners of #Cyberpunk2077 for Xbox One will receive the Xbox Series X upgrade for free when available."
@3Above But you are comparing an upgrade from PS4 to PS5, to different versions on different platforms with the port being made by a different studio on the Switch. Of course Nintendo won't accept the game being given for free on their console since they didn't have a cut on other the platform's sale. Try to buy a game on Steam and ask GoG or epic store for a free key, I doubt it will work and this will have nothing to do with the developer.
This is entirely different since it will be the first time a console with an eShop will be backword compatible. So this offers a whole new range of possibilities for developers, and CDPR is the very first studio who is talking about free upgrade across console generations
CD Projekt Red has announced that gamers who own the Xbox One version of the highly-anticipated title Cyberpunk 2077 will receive the Xbox Series X upgrade for free when it becomes available. You can check out the Twitter announcement below!
Owners of The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One will receive a free "next-gen" upgrade to the current-gen PS5 and Xbox X/S consoles in 2022. Fans have been awaiting the opportunity to see every detail of the grizzled White Wolf since the enhancement was first announced back in 2020. PC players do not have to worry, as the new features coming with the update will also hit he PC version. The enhanced edition of The Witcher 3 was scheduled to be released in the back half of 2021, then later delayed until the second quarter of 2022. Unfortunately, no word was given as to why this setback occurred, but the rough launch of Cyberpunk 2077 is a likely suspect.
The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt was released on May 18, 2015, and has received two expansions. Players were immediately drawn in by the vast open world, topped with stunning visuals and exciting combat. The game lives on in 2022 as fans continue to make mods for The Witcher 3. These fun changes add replayability, by enhancing Geralt's combat capabilities or altering characters in various ways. The game reached a new audience when players got their hands on the Nintendo Switch release, in October 2019. Currently, CD Projekt Red has yet to give an exact date for the next-gen upgrade to The Witcher 3.
The reason given for the new delay was that the decision was, "Based on recommendations supplied by teams supervising the development of both games." Most likely, CD Projekt Red does not want to repeat the disastrous launch of Cyberpunk 2077 and is making sure the upgrades are as polished as possible. Based on the details given for the new version, Witcher 3 fans will be able to experience the riveting open-world game like never before.
Based on reports, the next-generation upgrade may feature enhancements from one notable modder who goes by the name Halk Hogan. In an article by Kotaku, they reported on Halk's announcement that his creation of The Witcher 3 HD Reworked Project may be officially implemented in the new release. CD Projekt Red has not yet confirmed this collaboration, but Witcher 3 has gone through many changes since its launch, and given that Halk already made major improvements to the graphics of the base game, a prolific modder officially working with the developers could make for the best overall upgrade. Whether the collaboration happens or not, players can expect to enjoy The Witcher 3 at 60 FPS and 4K resolution for PC, Xbox Series X/S, and PlayStation 5 sometime in the second quarter of 2022.
As expected the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series XS upgrades for Cyberpunk 2077 have been announced and they are available to download today alongside a huge Patch 1.5 update! Hoping to convince people that the game is now ready for prime time, a free trial is also available, giving you the first five hours of the game.
While Microsoft is making aggressive moves to ensure buyers grab the upcoming Xbox Series X, Sony is sort of taking a "wait and see" approach with the PS5. This lackadaisical attitude is putting developer CD Projekt Red (the studio behind The Witcher and Cyberpunk 2077) in a bind as it can't confirm if its upcoming open-world RPG will be able to offer a free upgrade to PS5 users.
One of the key selling points of the Xbox One version of Cyberpunk is that Microsoft will be offering a free upgrade to the Series X version when its next console launches. This means that players don't have to wait around for a "better" version of the game. They can simply buy Cyberpunk on release, begin playing the title, then get all of the visual enhancements if they decide on upgrading their console. 153554b96e
