Watch Cyberpunk 2077 gameplay on PS5 and PS4

The latest sneak peek from CD Projekt Red gives players a glimpse of the Nomad life in Cyberpunk 2077 gameplay on PS5 and PS4 Pro.


Cyberpunk 2077 is set to release on December 10, 2020, and while worries of another delay are probably hot in the minds of would-be fans, CD Projekt Red is here to give us yet another taste of the good (or not-so-good) life in Night City. This time around we’re being transported to the futuristic world of Cyberpunk 2077 on the PS5 and PS4 Pro.

Obviously, some spoilers are included in the gameplay, so steer clear if you want to go into Cyberpunk 2077 with a clear head and no spoilers in mind.

Last week we got a glimpse of what the game would look like and play like on the Xbox One and Xbox Series X and even learned that copies are in the wild earlier this week. Now, though, we finally get to see official gameplay on the PS5 and PS4. It should be noted that the video says the PS4 gameplay is running on a PS4 Pro, so it's unclear how it will perform on a regular PS4. While only six minutes, quite a lot goes down in the gameplay that’s included, so let’s break it all down a bit.

First, the big news. We finally got to see a bit more of the Nomad lifepath that players can choose at the start of the game. Beginning the story outside of Night City, it looks like players who choose this path will be in for some really good stuff as they are immediately working to transport some kind of illegal goods to the city. We’re never given a breakdown of what the goods are, or even how quickly this kicks into gear, but it sounds like there might be some possible room for beef between Jackie and V, at least early on.

The gameplay then transitions to Night City, where Jackie and V have found themselves in some sort of trouble. The trouble seems to end in a shootout with a van that is loaded with cybernetically-enhances criminals with some nice guns.

You can check out the gameplay video above for a good look at the PS5 and PS4 versions of the game. Of course, more details about the differences in the two versions will become more apparent as we head into the game’s launch window. Make sure you keep your eyes on our Cyberpunk 2077 hub for the latest info, news, and our review when the game finally releases.

      So I just watched this,........... it's a bit better than the last footage, the PS5 stuff at night, I think that had rain on the windshield, PS4 didn't? (yet it's the same code?)

      That being said, like yes, it looks better than Xbox footage, purely due to location, so a bit unfair, but I do notice, it's night city, pandemic effect, no citizens for most of the driving scenes :/

          It's jarringly barren compared to previous content released.

        PS4 had rain on the front windshield too. It all looked pretty similar, its probably just better frames on PS5. I did notice it seemed like they switched to PS5 right before anything "actiony" happens.

          I didn't see any on the front on PS4 but I rewatched and saw some on Jackies side.

            hmm yeah they're on the front too but maybe not as pronounced? i dunno, i definitely see them lol

      I've read the PS5 version of CP77 releases in 2021, what's the difference between that and running the PS4 version on the PS5 hardware? has that been detailed? Leaning towards PC just because that's murky (and FPS with a controller is for heathens)

        I'm guessing, better frame rate, better resolution IF they use dynamic resolution.

          interesting... this and Yakuza getting punted into 2021 for PS5 only made me curious what they're doing. I thought maybe PS5 controller support, or that weird hints system for PS Plus subs

        They haven't told us what the PS5/XSX versions/updates will be, but they're likely to be identical or close to it, and I'd guess will offer raytracing.

        My guess is:

        Faster load times
        Dual sense functionality
        More visual and FPS options
        Probably ray tracing in some form

        I suspect PS4 version will run a dynamic res at 60fps on the PS5. PS5 version will probably have that mode with detail levels turned up beyond PS4 pro levels and then have a fidelity mode with ray tracing at 30fps.

          Just give me 30fps, 1080p and lots of pedestrians / living world plz.

            November 25, 2020 4:03 AM

            No no no! 30fps is too low of a standard :(

            I tried in Demons Souls and I just can't, I can't go back to 30

          No way it will run at 60 on PS5 back compat. They are targeting 30 for the game. I doubt it will have a performance mode.

        Raytracing will probably be the big thing. Higher average resolution is also a safe bet

        Nobody would ruin the sanctity and usefulness of user reviews like that would they?

        Yeah the marketing can be kind of questionable depending on how much earnest emotion is displayed in the quests. But if the game is good enough it might not matter.
