As one of the game’s description says:
Cyberpunk 2077 is an open-world, action-adventure story set in Night City, a megalopolis obsessed with power, glamour and body modification. You play as V, a mercenary outlaw going after a one-of-a-kind implant that is the key to immortality. You can customize your character’s cyberware, skillset and playstyle, and explore a vast city where the choices you make shape the story and the world around you.
Cyberpunk 2077 arrived for the usual platforms (PlayStation 4, Google Stadia, Xbox One, and Windows PC) and the next-generation consoles PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X/S. Running the game on your PC isn’t feasible if you don’t have some decent configuration – you’ll need at least an Intel Core i5-3570K or AMD FX-8310 for the processor, a video card like NVIDIA GeForce GTX 780/AMD Radeon RX 470 or something better, and a minimum of 70GB of space available on your drive. However, an SSD is recommended for the game, and there’s no wonder why: hard-disks tend to slow down gaming performance and programs.
If you want to run Cyberpunk 2077 on PC at decent graphical settings and without major problems, you should purchase a GTX 1060 of 6GB, GTX 1660 Super, or Radeon RX 590.
