Responding to a question on Twitter asking whether it was a completionist playthrough, Babiel said that it wasn’t, and that he was simply taking his time to explore everything.

He explained that it was “one of my ongoing slow paced playthroughs on the hardest difficulty where I play more stealthy than usual, loot everything, use every feature the game has to offer”

In response to another question about starting on the highest difficulty, Babiel responded that they recommended players start on Normal or Hard if they’re looking for a challenge, but that players could alter the difficulty at any time should they wish.

Cyberpunk 2077 has had three separate delays, and is now set for release on December 10, with workers at Amazon having taken pictures of the game’s packaging.

CD Projeckt RED have also confirmed that Cyberpunk 2077 will have a streamer mode that will help content creators avoid DMCA violations by disabling certain copyrighted tracks that could trigger a DMCA strike on Twitch.

The last few months of Cyberpunk 2077’s development have been filled with delays and allegations surrounding the crunch culture required to get such a large AAA game finished on time.

The game is also set to receive complete next-gen versions with enhanced graphics and other next-gen tech in the future, although a release date has not been announced. The game will be playable on PS5 and Xbox Series X and Series S in the meantime through backward compatibility.
