Cyberpunk 2077 has several epileptic triggers

CD Projekt Red will work on accessibility options, post-launch.

Cyberpunk 2077 has several epileptic triggers within that will not be addressed until sometime after launch.

Game Informer led the charge with a trigger warning yesterday, with author Liana Ruppert writing she “suffered one major seizure and felt several moments where I was close to another one.”

An in-game Braindance is the biggest culprit, with a headset that “fits over both eyes and features a rapid onslaught of white and red blinking LEDs, much like the actual device neurologists use in real life to trigger a seizure when they need to trigger one for diagnosis purposes.”

Since Ruppert’s report, developer CD Projekt Red has said it will act to address instances that could trigger an epileptic seizure.

“Thank you for bringing this up,” a statement on Twitter reads. “We’re working on adding a separate warning in the game, aside from the one that exists in the EULA… Regarding a more permanent solution, Dev team is currently exploring that and will be implementing it as soon as possible.”

We’ll let you know when accessibility options have been added in so those vulnerable to epileptic triggers can enjoy the game without concern.

Cyberpunk 2077 heads to Windows PC, Xbox One, PS4 and Stadia on 10 December. We reviewed it here.
