Cyberpunk 2077is one of the most visually stunning games ever made that also performs at a decent framerate, really helping to bring V’s story inside Night City alive. On PC. On console, you’re going to have to do a lot of fiddling with Cyberpunk 2077’s graphics settings and just kind of pray that it gets patched.

On PS5 and Xbox Series X | S, you will be experiencing up to 60 frames per second and much better fidelity thanks to backwards compatibility. On the consoles they are actually releasing for, though, it’s fair to say that the results range from middling to hideous. Cyberpunk 2077 looks pretty 1977 on the PS4 and Xbox One, which led to plenty of controversy from fans amid claims that CDPR have misled players. We reviewed the PS4 version, and yeah, not great.

So not great, in fact, that Sony began offering full refunds to all PlayStation players in an unprecedented move.

Until they get the console versions of Cyberpunk 2077 working as they should, you’re going to want to head over to Settings > Graphics and then apply the following settings for PS4, PS5, Xbox Series X | S, and Xbox One:

We’ve fiddled with plenty of these over our playthrough of the game and found that turning off Chromatic Aberration, Lens Flare, and Motion Blur not only helps performance, but also generally makes the game look a lot better.

These graphics settings can really enhance an already beautiful game, but when applied to something pretty messy like Cyberpunk 2077, can actually make it look even messier. It’s not great still, but the colors are a lot less washed out and the screen is much, much less busy during action so you can actually focus on what’s going on. Lens flare, for instance, is just a very distracting aesthetic choice that is more Hollywood than video game. It’s nice to look at, but practical? Not so much.

Speaking of colors, you can scroll to the right with R1/RB and turn on HDR under Video, if you so wish.

It’s not the best implementation of HDR we’ve ever seen in a console game, but does make Night City’s neon lights and dingy clubs feel a bit more vivid. HDR is especially handy if you don’t have a 4K TV or PS4 Pro/Xbox One X and still still want better visuals on eight-gen devices.

Cyberpunk 2077 is out now on PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One.
