Cyberpunk 2077 TGS 2020 vs. Russian Night City Wire Video Comparison
Cyberpunk 2077 was recently shown during Tokyo Game Show 2020 and held a special Russian Night City Wire. Here is a comparison between both footage.
CD Projekt Red has recently confirmed that Cyberpunk 2077 has gone gold which means there is no further delay in the release of the game. They are also localizing it in various languages like Russian and Japanese, which was the focus of their two recent Night City Wire live streams.
In both of these live streams, they showcased different footage, one presumably from an older build while the other was a new build of the game. Here is a comparison video between both of these versions,.
Some of the differences in the older build were rather simple to spot like the clipping that occurs near the end of the video. The TGS build was likely an older version of the game because it lacked the small details like slightly improved asset quality, tweaked lighting, and so on. The difference between the build is easy to see in the side-by-side comparison.
As the game is closer to launch now, and after going gold, chances are that the final build of the game will again show minor differences because developers make tweaks to the game in order to better optimize them for consoles and PC. We haven’t seen much of the console game footage, or if at all, but the PC version has received plenty of footage including showing the ray-traced version of Cyberpunk 2077.
The game is expected to launch on November 19, 2020. It is currently being developed by CD Projekt Red and will also get a free upgrade to PS5 and Xbox Series X in 2021.
