Don’t Let Cyberpunk 2077 2.0 Melt Your CPU

It’s a matter of days before Phantom Liberty is released worldwide – and before Cyberpunk 2077 2.0 drops and brings a resurgence of popularity for the 2020 rags-to-riches game. It’s one of the most highly anticipated releases of the year, even if just for the reason that it’s breathing a bit of fresh air into Cyberpunk 2077, which has remained relatively popular in recent years thanks to CD Projekt working like gangbusters to recover from the game’s dreadful launch.

Now, Cyberpunk 2077’s devs are taking to social media to plead to PC users, urging them to check their CPU cooling systems. It was stressed by one developer that the workload on an 8-core CPU is expected to float around 90%, pushing the hardware to its limits.

Cyberpunk 2.0 Will Be Intense

It’s almost a second launch for Cyberpunk 2077, which is expected to more or less have a slow fade-out following the release of Phantom Liberty on September 26th. There are no plans to introduce any more DLC for the game, and Phantom Liberty is the swansong update for the title. There is a sequel in development, but it’ll be some time before we see anything on that topic.

On Twitter, developer Filip Pierściński stressed that you should check your cooling systems around your CPU to make sure you’ll be able to handle the heat introduced by Cyberpunk 2077 2.0 this month. He also posted a tongue-in-cheek link to the music video for the song ‘Fire’ by Scooter.

Following that, Filip spent a while in the comments, reassuring fans who were concerned that their hardware wouldn’t be able to run Cyberpunk 2077 2.0 or Phantom Liberty.

Recently, CD Projekt posted a breakdown highlighting what fans will get with the purchase of Phantom Liberty, and what’s being added to the game for free with the Cyberpunk 2077 2.0 update.
