Cyberpunk 2077 on Xbox One and Xbox Series X/S can be played right now by changing the console’s location to New Zealand.
There are hours to go until the much-anticipated RPG unlocks in Europe and the US, but the game is already playable in New Zealand, and a workaround means you can convince you Xbox you’re there too.
In your Xbox system settings, head to Settings -> System -> Language & Location, and change location to New Zealand. Doing so will unlock the game to play.
Sadly, PS4, PS5, and PCs aren’t so easily convinced that you’ve suddenly moved to another part of the world, meaning you’ll need to wait until your appointed time in the game’s global unlock schedule to play on those platforms.
For more, check out our Cyberpunk 2077 review, as well as the first minutes of gameplay from the Corpo, Street Kid, and Nomad life paths. You can also take a look at how much the game has changed since the 2018 E3 demo.
