THE ‘CYBERPUNK 2077’ PC REQUIREMENTS ARE OFFICIAL

‘Cyberpunk 2077’ should arrive December 10 (the scheduled release has been pushed back three times until now) for PC, current- and next-gen consoles (through backwards compatibility).

As we’re getting closer, the first footage of the game running on consoles, has finally been revealed. We’ve seen it running on PC a couple of times and it’s a marvel, there’s no one able to deny it.

But the stunning visuals and details combined with the open-world setting do come with a price. You’ll need a powerful setup to fully enjoy it in its full glory.

It is demanding and a jump to ray-tracing really needs high-end specs. Will you get it for PC?

FIRST ‘CYBERPUNK 2077’ FOOTAGE ON CONSOLES

The hype around CD Projekt Red’s sci-fi open-world title ‘CYBERPUNK 2077’ is evergrowing even though the title has been delayed three times already.

The initial launch date was planned for April 16th, then pushed to September 17th, announced to be on track for November 19th and now scheduled to December 10th. There are however players that doubt it will be released this year at all.

Planned for PC, current- and next-gen consoles, today we’re finally getting footage of the game running on consoles (Xbox One X and Xbox Series X in this video). It is the first time we get a showcase on how it looks on consoles, so you should definately check it out!

Coming to Xbox One, PlayStation 4, PC, and Google Stadia on December 10th, 2020. The game will also be playable on Xbox Series X and PlayStation 5 consoles when available though backwards compatibility and a free next-gen upgrade will [probably] arrive in a couple of months.

Post-launch content will support the game through both free and purchasable content such as DLC.

THE WORLD’S FIRST REAL LIGHTSABER IN ACTION

Just yesterday I’ve posted a video of the world’s first real lightsaber and here’s another video where we get to see it in action!!!

Don’t miss this one, the guys are putting it to test and…. heck it can even cut through steel!

You should check out their YouTube channel, they’ve made some CRAZY stuff during the years, like Wolverine’s bone claws, Iron Man Plasma Glove, and Helmet (WITH DISPLAY!!!), Thor’s Hammer and lots of other fun projects.

HERE’S THE WORLD’S FIRST WORKING LIGHTSABER

A working (and RETRACTABLE!!!) light saber has always been a dream, ever sice the concept was introduced by George Lucas in 1977’s film ‘Star Wars’ (now titled ‘Star Wars: A New Hope’ or ‘Episode IV’).

Up until now there has been, as we know it, no one able to pull it off. But just like its inspiration, there’s ‘A New Hope’ (pun intended).

Not just that they’ve been working it out, it results in being able to produce a blue lightsaber, a green lighsaber, a red lightsaber, an ember lightsaber and even a yellow lightsaber. In the ‘Star Wars’ universe these are made of lightsaber crystals also known as kyber crystals. And all colors are supposed to have different meanings

. This is rocket science and beyond my knowledge, so I’ll let these guys explain it to you.

LOVE BABY YODA? YOU’LL LOVE BABY MAUL!

‘The Mandalorian’ fulfilled ‘Star Wars’-fans’ fantasies by converting elements of the beloved saga into the first ever live-action show based upon the universe created by George Lucas.

Fans and critics LOVED it.

The only thing bigger than the show itself was… Baby Yoda. Well, it’s not a younger version of the legendary Jedi- master Yoda, so it’s not Yoda. Either is Yoda one of the races in the lore, so the name may not be accurate. But IT DOES have his resemblance and that was the name given by fans and it hence to be known by that name.

Are you more into the Dark Side of The Force? Here comes Baby Maul! Or Darth Yoda? Both names fit and he is just ADORABLE!!!
