CD Projekt, the developer of Cyberpunk 2077, has advised PC players to ensure that their systems meet the requirements for the upcoming Phantom Liberty expansion and 2.0 update. Lead scene programmer Filip Pierściński specifically called for players to verify the stability of their cooling systems.
To avoid potential issues such as poor performance or crashes, Pierściński suggested running Cinebench or a similar test to check the stability of the system. Cinebench is a free test suite that evaluates a computer’s hardware capabilities.
CD Projekt updated the PC system requirements for Cyberpunk 2077 in June, with a focus on supporting SSDs as minimum requirements moving forward. The update was intended to align with the expansion’s release and to cater to resolutions of either 1080p or 4k. The Phantom Liberty expansion, which is a paid DLC, will be accompanied by a substantial patch that will enhance the base game, resulting in higher demands on PC systems.
The launch of Cyberpunk 2.0, along with the Phantom Liberty expansion, is scheduled for September 26 and will be available on PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X and S, and PC.
