CD Projekt Red has been criticized for the appearance of potentially seizure-inducing epileptic triggers found in some scenes in Cyberpunk 2077. Read on to find out about the triggers and how to keep yourself safe when you play!

Seizure and Epilepsy Controversy

Issue has been taken with a mechanic in Cyberpunk 2077 called Braindance, as some have noted that it has the potential to trigger seizures in people with epilepsy. This part of the game has been described as akin to using the actual device neurologists use in real life to trigger a seizure.

CD Projekt Red has responded to these claims, mentioning that while they have included the standard EULA warning in-game, they plan to take additional measures to resolve the issue.

Modified in Patch 1.04

On Saturday, December 12th, only two days after release, CD Projekt Red added a hotfix to address the issue, and reduce the flashing effects occurring during braindance sequences.

This is thought to hopefully have resolved the issue, so be sure to download the 1.04 Patch if you haven't already in order to avoid any risk.
