Cyberpunk 2077 has been updated to update 1.5 which includes several new features, including one new crowd AI. The latter is only available on PC, Stadia, PS5 and Xbox Series X | S, but not on PS4 and Xbox One, as it is too powerful for such old consoles.
The changes in Cyberpunk 2077 update 1.5 allow the crowd to act more realistically to aggressive actions, with NPCs reacting, others running away, or others fighting each other. “It gives the city a little more reactivity and life,” said the Quest Director Paweł Sasko. “The fact that some of the people are actually armed, and may decide to attack you the moment you threaten them in some way” is enjoyable and immersive.
But the whole is impossible on PS4 and Xbox One. “I can say that with the changes and additions made via updates to the core of Cyberpunk 2077, the game, which was already technically complex, is becoming more and more complex. This growing complexity requires more resources – such as more internal storage. faster, or more RAM of which there is typically a finite amount on consoles. With this in mind, we made the decision to introduce some features only in the next-gen versions, speaking of consoles, in order to continue to provide the more optimal and stable gaming experience on the base hardware of PlayStation 4 and Xbox One “.
In other words, PS4 and Xbox One aren’t powerful enough for Cyberpunk 2077’s more advanced technical features, unless they seriously impact performance.
