Original: While Cyberpunk 2077 already looks beautiful enough, the magic of Dolby Laboratories will help players further enhance the sights and sounds of Night City.
Taking to Twitter earlier today, Dolby confirmed that Cyberpunk 2077 will have Dolby Atmos technology at release. That means players who own a Dolby Atmos sound system will be able to enjoy a heightened surround sound in the game.
Cyberpunk 2077 will also be receiving support for Dolby Vision but not at release. The said technology helps enrich colors and for an environment like Night City, will presumably provide breathtaking results but somewhere in 2021.
You can experience it in Dolby Atmos at launch and Dolby Vision soon in 2021.

Dolby Atmos and Dolby Vision, while being a premium experience, do depend on the platform in question. PlayStation 5 does not support either of the two technologies. Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S however do and are “the first consoles ever to enable gaming in both Dolby Atmos and Dolby Vision,” according to Microsoft.
Cyberpunk 2077 comes with a photo mode which players will be using to share their pretty and exciting surroundings with their friends and family. The photo mode was detailed just last night, featuring a long list of options for players to explore. They notably include toggling the visibility of characters and muzzle flashes, deciding between different character expressions, choosing from several poses and color filters, fiddling with lighting and contrast, changing the depth of field, changing camera angles, and even adding stickers, among many others.
CD Projekt Red as well as fans are currently counting down the days for the nearing release. Cyberpunk 2077 has already been delayed thrice, the third one being just last month. The long-awaited game is now pegged for every single major platform out there on December 12, 2020.
With less than a week to go, it is a bit assuring that the developer will probably not be announcing a fourth delay in the coming days.
