The Xbox Series X is the most powerful home console out there. Here is every setting players should change when playing Cyberpunk 2077.
The last generation versions of Cyberpunk 2077 took a massive hit in terms of quality. This guide will provide Xbox Series X players with the settings they should change to vastly improve their experience. Project CD Red has recently come under fire due to the state of the last-gen releases of Cyberpunk 2077. While the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X versions of the game run fine enough, there are still tons of issues that plague the game and hold it back from becoming a true masterpiece. As for the older console version, these are nearly unplayable. For those fortunate enough to fight through hordes of scalpers and bots to purchase an Xbox Series X, here are things players should change in the settings to get the best experience.
Cyberpunk 2077 originally began its development back in 2013, around the time of the release of the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. While much of this time was likely due to pre-production and preparation, much of that time must have been on developing the game within its engine. Currently, the actual Xbox Series X and PlayStation 5 versions of the game don’t exist, but rather allow the game to run due to backward compatibility. The games do run better on these new consoles because of the stronger hardware, but the game was not built with this technology in mind. Thus, no matter what version of the game the player has, there will be bugs and glitches present. Although, to improve the overall condition of the game, here are some settings players can change to improve the game’s performance.
The Best Settings For Cyberpunk 2077 On Xbox Series X
The Xbox Series X is currently the most powerful home console to ever exist and it still suffers from poor performance due to a lack of proper optimization. Here are some vital settings that can help the player improve their experience.
- Disable Damage Numbers: Head to Settings>Interact>Damage Numbers Mode. It will no longer clutter the screen. Health bars for enemies are present regardless. The numbers just make the screen super messy.
- Disable Background Chats: These are the characters in the background that speak indirectly in the area. As it’s a city, these little dialogue boxes will appear very often. Walking down the wrong street can make the game lag with too many text boxes. Turn them off to remove clutter with Settings>Sound>Subtitles>Overhead.
- Turn Off Any Cinematic Features: In the settings, players should be able to turn off Motion Blur, Depth of Field, and Film Grain. While it does make the game feel more cinematic in its presentation, turning these off will make the game look much better. It’s more for the trained eye than the casual audience.
- Turn On Continuous Dialogue Skip: Head to Settings>Gameplay>Miscellaneous>Skipping Dialogue. There is so much dialogue in the game that players will vastly want moments to just skip it all and jump back into the game.
Cyberpunk 2077 needs plenty of patches to bring the game to its full potential. Although, patches are happening early in 2021. Hopefully, these will fix all the issues plaguing the game. The game needs time to “properly” release for the next generation as well.
