CD Projekt Red have decided to flex their game dev muscles at us again in their latest Night City Wire. This time, they’ve graced their audience with a look at Cyberpunk 2077 running on both the Xbox One X and the Xbox Series X.

Between the One X and the Series X, there aren’t many graphical improvements. Most of the character models and textures look the same so there isn’t a huge gap between both versions. Even the great Keanu himself doesn’t seem to have a big improvement on the Series X. However, the team is working on a “full next-gen upgrade” for next year. So the game will most likely get a lot of graphical upgrades in the near future.

The big difference gamers will notice is just how much smoother the next-gen version of Cyberpunk is. The Xbox One X version of the game runs at a low 30fps, and you can really tell during combat. By comparison, the Series X version runs at a much higher framerate, making every action and camera movement in the game just so much smoother. Seeing the game running this smoothly was something truly amazing for a console.

Although the One X version is still gorgeous to look at. Even with the slower framerate, the game looks pretty good for running on a last-gen console. So anyone who hasn’t yet upgraded will still get a nice game to look at.

If you’re one of the lucky ones who got their preorder of a next-gen console, you’re going to love the silky smooth frames this game will give you. But if you’re not so lucky, you’ll still be getting a beautiful looking game. And with Xbox smart delivery you can get a free version of Cyberpunk for the next-generation when you buy the game for a last-gen console, so there’s really no reason to wait.

Cyberpunk 2077 will be out on December 10th for the Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S, PS4, PS5, PC and Google Stadia.
