CD PROJEKT RED has published a map detailing the unlock and preload times for Cyberpunk 2077 across various regions of the world. It appears that the highly anticipated RPG will be unlocked and playable on PC (and Stadia) a few hours ahead of its official December 10 release date for the Americas, with US east coast residents being able to play as early as 7 PM EST.

Those of you who already purchased Cyberpunk 2077 on PC and Stadia (or plan to do so shortly) can preload the game beginning on December 7. The GOG version can be preloaded at 12 p.m. CET, while the Steam and Epic Games Store versions can be preloaded at 5 p.m. CET.

As for the console editions, those will release in each region at midnight local time. “Preload of the game will be available on Thursday, December 3rd, at 5 p.m. CES on Xbox, and two days prior to the release date on PlayStation,” CD PROJEKT RED noted.

CD PROJEKT RED has also released a neat trailer showcasing Cyberpunk 2077’s Photo Mode, which, as you can probably guess, allows players to take photos of their customized characters and the many gorgeous locales that comprise Night City. Photo Mode includes plenty of options for getting the perfect shot, such as character pose and effect sliders (e.g., contrast, vignette).

  1. I may have the 10th off.. this may be to allow me more unfettered time with cp2077… this may be ruined by my wife. Lol
  2. This has been my experience with the game since 7:10pm EST. One time it took out my whole system and I had to hard-reset. Another time it took out my primary monitor, and both the OS and the GPU could no longer see that monitor. PC restart fixed that though. I did get to watch the intro movie once, I saw the title screen a couple times, and I even got to check out the settings menu once. All graphics settings defaulted to max, which was interesting. I am on nVidia GPU driver 460.79.

    No performance or lockup issues here. Also using the newest Geforce driver. Have played about 3.5 hours so far.

  4. Yea I got to play a bit. I appreciated how they handled stuff they could have built into the game… don’t want to give spoilers. And running just fine on a minimum level of RT on my system at 1440p.

    RTX 2080 non super, 32 gig of ram, Ryzen 9 3900x CPU, and running off of an NVME 3.0×4 Samsung drive.

  5. It actually played quite well with the Rig in my Sig.
    I have decided to stick to 1440p with settings maxxed and Quality DLSS. 4K is barely 30FPS for me with everything cranked and DLSS Quality set on.
  6. I got a few hours in last night. Sadly, and I was expecting this, my 1080Ti REALLY struggled at 1440P. I used High preset with some things turned down a notch just to get 50-60 FPS. It’s 100% playable at that framerate though.
  7. Cyberpunk has become the biggest launch for a single player game on Steam, breaking over 1 million concurrent users last night. It breaks the 4th highest concurrent player count on Steam after PUBG, CS:GO, and DOTA 2. GOG and Epic have not publicized their player numbers, yet, but according to preliminary sales data the majority of PC players purchased or registered the game on GOG.

    You could tell it was a massive success for them based on the DL speeds on Steam, it was really struggling.

    I didn’t download until the morning I posted about pre-loads being open. Got most of it in around 20-30 minutes on GOG. I don’t know how the patch went since I usually just turn on the rig and let it do its thing when I get back home. It was just ready when I went to check last night. Even with bugs/glitches/whatnot, I’m happy for CDPR. This looks fun and not something I’ll get burned out on in a couple of hours like so many other games in the last couple of years. From what I’ve read in reviews I can burn through the main campaign quickly and go back and explore every nook and cranny at leisure, or just take my time. I like that. It’s made a huge difference with replayablilty for W3 over the years.

  10. I am interested in this but I think I’ll let it bake for another month or so and get some more patches under the belt. Also go on sale.

    Honestly man.. even from the hour or so I’ve played… I’d say drop the release price unless you’re strapped for money. In that case UNDERSTOOD! Been there done that!

  12. I’ve been on the fence with buying this, but may end up just biting the bullet. I can’t see this going on sale any time soon and if it does it will be minimal like RDR2.
  13. It looks great and I’m looking forward to playing it once I get a 3080/90.

    I got a 4K LG 32", So going for that.
