You can’t wait to finally play Cyberpunk 2077 and you are totally impatient. If you own an Xbox One or Series X / S, there is a simple trick you can use to play early! PlayStation owners have it a little harder.
How does it work? Fans all over the world had to wait a long time. Everyone who is not part of the CD Porjekt Red press distribution list will be able to play in sometimes in the night or morning. (*cough* Just like us, dear CD Projekt Team). However, if you are one of the very impatient and own an Xbox, you can start Cyberpunk 2077 earlier – now! PS4 / 5 owners have a harder time to do so.

Here’s How You Can Play Cyberpunk 2077 Earlier on Xbox
What you have to do: To be able to play Cyberpunk 2077 early, you have to switch your system location to New Zealand. The background is simple. In New Zealand it is already December 10th, while the rest of the world only slips in hours.
Many users on the net claim that this should work. So just give it a try. For this you have to do the following:
- Start your Xbox
- Press the Xbox button to go to the guide menu
- Then go to Settings> All Settings> System> Language & Location
- Select New Zealand there and restart your console!
How it works for PlayStation
This is what PlayStation players have to do: Unfortunately, it is not that easy for owners of a PlayStation 4 or 5. To do the whole thing, you have to buy the game directly from New Zealand and then switch your region accordingly in the system settings. But then there is no longer any guarantee that it is not subject to a region lock (via Wikipedia).
Did it work out? If it worked and you are able to play Cyberpunk 2077 early like in the videos on Youtube and Reddit, let us and the other readers know in the comments! For those who are not happy owners of a console, it is still a matter of waiting. The regular start is from Thursday to Friday at 01:00 a.m.
