The bad news is that CD Projekt RED has no current plans to implement VR into Cyberpunk 2077. Now don’t get disappointed just yet, since VR can always be added to titles later. Even a low-key game like Hellblade gained VR support not long after its release. But what can you expect by combining weed games, VR and one of the most anticipated titles of all time?
A Whole New World for Weed Games
Cyberpunk has been done before in other media, even video games. But what makes Cyberpunk 2077 so vital to the genre is that it will be the first big open world game. This makes a major difference in how you view it as a whole, with freedom of movement being vital to the VR experience. The cyberpunk theme is lively and will have a lot of moving people and things. VR on this scale has not been done before an official capacity. You’re talking hundreds of NPC’s in a living, breathing, and completely open world. By comparison to other big-ticket games like Skyrim, Cyberpunk 2077 separates itself by having more personality within its world and each individual character. With the help of weed, you can get fully immersed in a Blade Runner-like world with a great story. If the sound is even half as good as previous games, then it will be a requirement to have a quality VR headset. There are no quality requirements for the cannabis you’ll be smoking, but a good stash is always recommended!
The Best Light Show in Existence
If there is cyberpunk, then there is going to be a big light show. One of the reasons futuristic games are recommended for weed smokers is due to their handling of effects. Your senses are already heightened with the use of weed, so imagine what happens when you add in top-notch effects. The graphics engine will already be pushing ninety-nine to one-hundred percent, and with any luck, it will have ray tracing options. If all of the stars align, gamers will get special effects that are enough to make Michael Bay blush. This is the big-ticket pro of having VR and smoking weed, this is what we came for! But of course, there is a downside. If flashing lights or similar effects give you elliptic seizures, Cyberpunk 2077 will be all but unplayable for you. Turning off all of the effects won’t help since the light show is part of the charm with the genre. Don’t overlook any warnings the game provides since it will definitely cause problems for your health. This message goes for any type of VR activity and is often plastered on the box before you buy.
Great Color Combinations
Something that goes undetected with CD Projekt RED is their use of colors. A healthy dose of colors is good for weed users and counts as another thing that is enhanced with smoking. With the use of a quality VR set, you can take in the full dose of perfection. Just from the trailers released, you can see how much of a visual feast this is. They took what they learned from the Witcher and adapted it to fit a completely different world, in much different series. Instead of using dull and washed out colors like in a Fallout, gamers get the full experience of a futuristic setting, bells and whistles included. Notice I said you need a QUALITY VR headset. Nothing from Dollar Tree, and nothing from Five Below. The top four VR headsets are still Oculus Rift, PlayStation VR, HTC Vive and Samsung Gear VR (in no particular order). Anything outside of those four, and you’re probably dealing with some subpar VR choices. If you can spring for quality weed to smoke while playing, then do the same thing for the headset!
An Audio Experience That May Frighten You
Just like Hellblade, Cyberpunk 2077 will send chills down your spine. It will overload your senses just like you would expect from a futuristic setting. Flying cars, virtual advertisements and of course cool weapon sounds. This is just as essential to the full experience as the visual medium, so once again, splurge on a good VR headset! Smoking weed while gaming is supposed to enhance your immersion, not fill in the gaps. If the sound is not coming in crisp while playing, no amount of high will let you focus on what is currently a subpar gaming session.
This Is Probably What VR Was Meant To Be
People would always laugh when people talked about Virtual Reality. Then they would double over in laughter with the idea of weed-friendly games. With a VR component, Cyberpunk 2077 may turn into the best game to play while high. You will already get the full experience by just having a VR headset. Now, take the time to imagine your headspace when playing it while smoking. If it is even half as good as everyone is expecting it to be, then expect a strong push for the cyberpunk genre and VR.
When Does It All Happen?
There is no official date, but a recent trailer has shown promise for early 2019. There is a good chance you could play it before June of this year, but don’t get your hopes up. Even after its release, it will take some time to get support for VR enhancements. But once that happens, it will be like entering a completely different world for the first time.
