Cyberpunk 2077 won’t be receiving its dedicated PS5 and Xbox Series X/S ports until some time in 2021, but it will, of course, still be playable on the consoles via backward compatibility when it launches tomorrow, and it will also benefit from visual and technical enhancements. For instance, it came to light earlier that on the Xbox Series X, the game offers options for Performance and Quality modes, with the former allowing for 60 FPS gameplay, and the latter letting you make sacrifices in the performance department in favour of higher visual fidelity.
However, it seems like that’s not an option on the PS5. As reported by VGC, when you boot up Cyberpunk 2077 on the PS5 (which is running the PS4 version via backward compatibility), you do not get the option to select between Performance and Quality modes in the menu, unlike on the Xbox Series X. Instead, the game seems to default to Performance mode with 60 FPS gameplay.
CD Projekt RED haven’t yet commented on the matter, and it remains to be seen whether a Quality mode is something they will eventually add as an option to the game on PS5.
Cyberpunk 2077 is out for the PS4, Xbox One, PC, and Stadia tomorrow, and will be playable on Xbox Series X/S and PS5 via backward compatibility. Check out its launch trailer here. CDPR also snuck in a hidden message in said trailer talking about their post-launch plans for the RPG. Read more on that through here.
