Cyberpunk 2077 is about to hit the market and that has millions of players around the world excited, but we have to warn them that if they suffer from epilepsy, some scenes in the game can affect them negatively.
Some video game critics and people with early access to the new CD Projekt Red game have reported that spending time with the game did indeed trigger seizures. This was the case with Liana Rupert from Game Informer. She wrote about her experience with tips so that other players suffering from the same can avoid an attack.
It seems that the main culprit for this is the ‘Braindance’ scenes. In these, the main character can interact with other people’s memories through special lenses and connections.
As these scenes begin, we see an intermittent sequence of red and white lights that have been a problem for people with epilepsy. In fact, these lights are similar to those used by neurologists to trigger seizures and perform diagnostics.
Because of this, many have criticized CD Projekt Red for not putting out a clear warning for people with epilepsy when gaming. Cyberpunk 2077. At the moment there is only one mention of this in the game’s EULA. The study has already taken notice and announced that they are working on a new advisory while looking for a more permanent solution.
Sadly, some fans of this game (which, remember, has not been released) are attacking those who criticize Cyberpunk 2077 for this and They sent videos of flashing lights to Rupert, seeking to unleash an epileptic seizure. This is absolutely intolerable.
We hope that the studio will soon find a solution to this. Meanwhile, this case adds to the long list of controversies that has starred Cyberpunk 2077.
