Cyberpunk 2077 is coming with a special-edition themed 1TB Xbox One X console along with a brand new controller based on the aesthetics of Night City.
Since last week, Xbox tweeted a challenge for fans to crack a code hidden in its video, rewarding fans with a full reveal of the bundle once it was solved.
The system shows the Xbox One X running with blue and yellow mechanical digs and a battle-worn paint job. Small neon-blue lights are added on the console’s face and even glow-in-the-dark to match the futuristic LED-ridden world seen in the game. Labels all over the console make the One X feel like an authentic piece of hardware straight from the universe as well and comes with a platform to display it all vertically.
Complimenting the glowing console is a custom-designed Xbox Wireless Controller with a light and dark section to give players a Johnny Silverhand-type theme. Its lighter side shows in-game corporation Arasaka branded and gives players some ideas on the jobs they’ll be taking on (or up against) with them. The thumbstick and d-pad are also given a brushed metal treatment while more scratched decals make the controller seem like an artifact which saw some action. The darker side is more interesting with an unknown label under the right thumbstick and a scrawled “NO FUTURE” message likely written by a cheery citizen under the face buttons. Those buttons are also painted in all-red, along with the left bumper.
Unlike the console, its limited Cyberpunk 2077 controller doesn’t glow-in-the-dark (excluding the home button of course) and is the latest model to sport aesthetics akin to Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare, Gears 5 and Star Wars: Jedi Fallen Order which have all partnered directly with Xbox in making limited edition controllers. Many were also bundled with the consoles before they were sold separately. According to Xbox, the same will come for players being able to get the Cyberpunk controller separately at launch for $74.99 USD.
Adding to the Cyberpunk2077 hardware is its equally Limited Edition Xbox Pro Charging Stand which shares a mini-theme from the One X console and gives the controller a rechargeable battery. A special Johnny Silverhand-inspired back plate gives the battery an opening for seamless touch-charging with the stand.
Looking to save space to contain all of Night City and its future DLC? A special Seagate hard drive is also on its way in both 2TB and 5TB options with a similar look and feel to the universe. The drive will also come with the latest software versions for instant plug-and-use with the Xbox One X without hassle for $89.99 or $149.99 USD.
Lastly, gamers can also pick up the Johnny Silverhand-themed SteelSeries Arctis 1 Wireless Headset with a 2.4GHz latency connection and a detachable ClearCast microphone. A dongle also works with other devices for use outside of the Xbox One Controller. The headset is priced at $109.99 USD.
No price has yet been revealed on the special edition bundle, which comes with the full game, system and controller around June (a few months ahead of CyberPunk 2077’s final release date in September 17, 2020).
The game is developer CD Projekt Red’s latest ambitious open-world title following The Witcher 3and brings some of the RPG action mechanics into a sci-fi setting akin to Blade Runner. Players take on a first-person story as a mercenary named V, bent on revenge against the criminal scum that is also the financial backbone to Night City. Oh, and Keanu Reeves is your best AI friend accompanying you across the entire ride.
