You can preload Cyberpunk 2077 now, but don’t look

Cyberpunk 2077 will be available on the 3rd, but PC players can start downloading the game now. Of course, you can’t play it yet. Or maybe you can? Those who have preloaded the game on their machine may be pleased to see that they can actually press “play” when it’s done. Unfortunately, you’re just waiting for a rebuke from Johnny Silver Hand until the game ends properly.

Those who pre-order Cyberpunk 2077 from either GOG, Steam, or the Epic Games store will be able to start downloading before the appropriate release date this Thursday. When complete, it becomes clear that you can choose to actually play the game. One player posted a screenshot of what happened when they went. However, the Knight City Gate is strangely unprotected three days earlier than planned.

When the game was launched, the user “Jmendo 02” was greeted by cyberpunk star Johnny Silver Hand with the words “Samurai, go back to sleep”. It’s not December 10th yet! Well, it was worth the blow.

Whether or not you currently have Cyberpunk 2077 in your library, you have to wait until the right time to play. December 10th is the official date, but it’s a worldwide launch, so depending on where you are, you may actually be able to play on the night of the 9th. According to CDPR, Takeoff will occur at 12:00 AM Greenwich Mean Time on December 10. This is December 9th, 4 pm Pacific Standard Time / 7 pm Eastern Standard Time.

Until then, lie down. Perhaps the couple is lying down. Johnny is there to make sure you don’t open your cyber gift early in the meantime.

CDPR also warns streamers not to leak footage before it goes on sale. Of course, there was a leak anyway. Alice Bee saw one of them and thought it was a bit boring and not worth seeing.

You can pre-load Cyberpunk 2077 right now but if you try to play early Johnny gives you a scolding
