We Know Release Date for Cyberpunk 2077's Visual Update

Ray Tracing Mode: Overdrive is still heading to Cyberpunk 2077, but we will have to wait until next month for the debut of enhanced ray tracing.

During the "Cyberpunk 2077 RT: Overdrive - Bringing Path Tracing into the Night City" panel at GDC 2023, CD Projekt announced the release date of the enhanced ray tracing in the PC edition of Cyberpunk 2077. Ray Tracing: Overdrive mode will launch on April 11, less than three weeks away (via Nvidia).

For now, neither CD Projekt Red nor Nvidia have released the promised new demo, which was supposed to showcase the upcoming novelties in action. The last (and so far only) official video was posted in September.

The main attraction of the upcoming update will be, of course, improved ray tracing (including enhanced support for RTX Path Tracing technology), which will make lighting effects and reflections even more beautiful than in the game's premiere release. Taking advantage of this will be facilitated by DLSS version 3 support, which Cyberpunk 2077 received some time ago.

On a side note: if for some reason you were hoping for information on the Phantom Liberty DLC, we have to disappoint you. As announced, CD Projekt representatives focused on issues of interest to game developers, namely design, narrative methods and - of course - technologies.

Passionate about video (and other) games for years, he completed an Mba in linguistics, defending a thesis about games. He began his adventure with Gamepressure in 2015, writing in the newsroom, later also covering film and – oh, horror! – technology (also contributor to the gaming encyclopedia). He started with platformers, which he still dearly loves (including metroidvania), but he's also interested in card games (including 'analog'), brawlers, soulslike games and basically every other type of game. Don't ask about the graphics – after a few hours of exposition, he can be delighted with pixelated characters from games that remember the days of the Game Boy age (if not older).
