After years of waiting, Cyberpunk 2077 is almost here! It still sounds somewhat weird to say it out loud that in one week, everyone can get their hands on it.

At the back of my head, there’s this fear that a CD Projekt Red (CDPR) might sadistically announce another delay to watch us go crazy, but I’m sure that’s unfounded…I hope.

Anywho, as the release date draws closer, CDPR has been slowing unveiling features and accessibility options for the game to keep us invested. So let’s dive right in and have a look!

Cross-save for next-generation consoles.

Cross saves are the talk of gamers now, especially given how ridiculously hard it is to get a next-generation console at the moment. Thus, most of us will have to play more recent titles on our existing consoles before making a move over.

Cyberpunk 2077 is no exception to the rule, but thankfully CDPR has confirmed that cross saves are a reality. And as such, there’s no reason why you shouldn’t start your adventure in Cyberpunk on your current consoles.

For Xbox users, the cross-save transfers are as simple as pushing a button because of the Xbox Smart Delivery feature that will handle everything seamlessly.

As for PlayStation user, we have to work a little harder before the saves are accessible on the PS5. The first method is by using a PlayStation Plus account to upload the saves to the cloud. While, the second method involves transferring the data over wirelessly, wired or through a compatible storage device.

All in all, our save data are secured.

Cyberpunk 2077 dazzling Photo Mode.

If you haven’t been paying attention, Cyberpunk 2077 is, for the most part, a first-person game. So no matter how long you take to customize your character’s looks in the beginning; you won’t get to see it very much.

And that’s where the Photo Mode feature comes into play for all of you who aspire to take that perfect shot, as flames engulf everything in the background.

It seems CDPR didn’t pull any stops with this feature as well. From the trailer, it’s obvious that a lot of work has gone into making it a powerful tool and a major component for fans to dive into. I’m usually not one to use photo mode in games; but for Cyberpunk 2077, it feels like a requirement.

Get ready!

Cyberpunk 2077 might be the game that salvages 2020 for us, gamers. So, here’s to hoping that it lives up to its expectations and gets our mind blown!
