Cyberpunk 2077 receives a substantial update with Patch 1.5 as native PlayStation 5, Xbox Series S and Xbox Series X versions of the game arrive
CD Projekt Red has finally released a native version of Cyberpunk 2077 for Xbox Series S|X and PlayStation 5 consoles. Over a year after the game debuted, the next-generation versions are free upgrades for anyone who already owns Cyberpunk 2077 and a compatible console. As the screenshot below shows, CD Projekt Red advises PlayStation 5 owners to manually download Cyberpunk 2077 from their library if they already have the PS4 version installed.
Not only does Cyberpunk 2077 now run natively on these consoles, CD Projekt Red has also enabled performance and ray-tracing modes, albeit not for the Series S. While the latter tops out at 1440p/30 FPS, the Series X and PlayStation 5 should handle the game at 4K/60 FPS in performance mode and 4K/30 FPS with ray-tracing enabled. CD Projekt Red notes that only local shadows are ray traced for reference.
Additionally, CD Projekt Red has reduced Cyberpunk 2077 by 50% across consoles and PC. Supposedly, the deal will last until March 3 globally. The release of Cyberpunk 2077 for Xbox Series S|X and PlayStation 5 consoles coincides with Patch 1.5, the game's inaugural patch of 2022 and its first since August. Please note, Patch 1.5 is between a 43 GB and 47 GB download on PC, depending on if you purchased it on GOG or Steam.
CD Projekt Red has outlined some of the changes Patch 1.5 brings to each platform, too. Despite not including any DLCs with the latest patch, CD Projekt Red claims to have added 'a few secrets in Night City to be discovered by players'. Also, the company has introduced new weapons, additional apartments and the ability to change V's appearance mid-game. Patch 1.5 is available to download now on all platforms. You can find the full patch notes on CD Projekt Red's dedicated website.
