It was a long eight years. Cyberpunk 2077, the game which was teased back in 2012 but has had several heartbreaking delays, finally launches today, December 10.  

Development on the game stalled several times, and only a couple of trailers have been released since that initial teaser. There was one in 2013 that gamers hyped, then there was the feature in E3 2018. Then, around a year ago, CD Projekt Red took out breath away with a stunning CG trailer with an easter egg—It was everybody's favorite hitman Johnny SIlverhand, a very prominent character in the Cyberpunk lore.

The game is now available on Best Buy. But before you go adding to cart, here are some fast facts you should go through about the game that everyone waited almost a decade for.

On PC, the game will take up 70GB of disk space and on the PS5/ PS4, the download size is over 100GB while on Xbox, the game is just under 60GB but as shared by Twitter user DreamcastGuy, there's an insane 43GB Day One patch for the game.

Cyberpunk 2077 early reviews, glitches and bugs

CD Projekt Red lifted the review embargo last Monday night and sites like IGN and Metacritic gave the game pretty high scores: 9/10 and 91/100, respectively. The PC reviews are mostly positive but the game has a number of bugs and glitches ranging from funny and mildly irritating to downright game-breaking. Some PC users also reported several crashes during the first few hours of the game.

Thankfully, CD Projekt Red's Fabian Mario Döhla assured fans via a tweet that the company is aware of the bugs and “a bunch of issues reviewers encountered (and reported) have been fixed already, some more are part of the update.” This is definitely good news for those wanting to play the game and for those who already purchased the game.

Additionally, the developers have announced they are working on adding a separate epilepsy warning in the game, besides the one already present in the EULA. CDPR also said that they're currently looking into a more permanent solution, perhaps a dedicated "seizure sensitive" mode. 

There is also a ‘streamer mode' in the game that disables copyright music when turned on so that gamers who are streaming Cyberpunk 2077 won't have to worry about their videos getting claimed by pesky recording studios.
