Publisher Merge Games has announced a native PS5 version of cyberpunk delivery title Cloudpunk will arrive on the PS Store on 19th August 2022, with a physical version coming one week later. There will be a free PS4 to PS5 upgrade for current owners, which will grant you instant access to a 4K resolution at 60 frames-per-second. The trailer found above compares the last-gen version with next month's new edition.
As well as a 4K resolution running at 60fps, the draw distance, render distance, and fog quality have all been improved, and so have volumetric lighting and bloom effects. PS5 activity cards are supported along with the DualSense pad's adaptive triggers, haptic feedback, speaker, and light bar. For the first time on consoles, a cockpit mode will also be available.
"Completing deliveries has never felt better with full DualSense support, including haptic feedback on rain effects, adaptive triggers that kick in when your vehicle is damaged, and a lightbar reflecting your all-important fuel status," a press release explains. "And finally, explore with a brand-new perspective in the much-awaited cockpit mode, putting you in the driving seat."
In our Cloudpunk PS4 review, we awarded the game a 6/10 and called it a "sci-fi noir deliver 'em up [that] does just enough". One of our issues related to some small technical problems, so let's hope they've either already been fixed with patches or have been addressed with this native PS5 version.
