Cyberpunk 2077 is one of the most anticipated games of the year and the launch of the game is mere days away. In anticipation of the upcoming game, we thought we’d break down some common questions you may have about Cyberpunk 2077, where to play it, how to play it and how much the game will cost you. Here’s hoping you have taken some time off work, as the game is expected to be very long.
Cyberpunk 2077 will be playable on 9 platforms at launch. They are PS4, PS4 Pro, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox One X, Xbox Series S, Xbox Series X, Stadia and PC. While Stadia and the PS5 aren't officially in India, gamers who have their hands on the PS5 will be able to play the game.
The game will be playable on the new console generation, but full optimized versions will launch later. Developer CD Projekt Red has confirmed that Cyberpunk 2077 will work on the PS5 and Xbox Series X/S via backwards compatibility. If you own a physical copy of the game, you will be eligible for a physical upgrade of the game on the PS5 Disc edition and Series X only. However, if you own the game digitally, then you will get the upgrade on whichever next-gen console you have. There is no confirmed date for when the next-gen versions of Cyberpunk 2077 will be available.
Yes, the next-gen upgrade for Cyberpunk 2077 will be free. However, you will have to log into your PSN or Xbox Live account, the same one with which you purchased the game. For the physical edition of the game, you will need to insert the disc in the console.
As for the price, Cyberpunk 2077 is priced at Rs 3,999 for a physical copy on PS4 and Xbox One. Downloaded digitally from the PlayStation Store and Xbox Store, you can get the game for Rs 3,499. The game is priced at Rs 2,999 on Steam.
The official release date for Cyberpunk 2077 is December 10 in India. While one would think the game will be playable at midnight itself, you may want to check out this calendar which highlights when the game will be playable across the globe.

Contrary to popular belief, Cyberpunk 2077 doesn’t need a high-end rig to be playable. At the entry-level, you need an Intel Core i5 3570K CPU, 8GB RAM, a GTX 780 or Radeon RX 470 GPU.
