It recently came to light that Cyberpunk 2077 has some sections that could trigger epileptic seizures, and now developer CD Projekt Red has followed through on a promise to add a warning to the game about this. Reporter Elise Favis wrote on Twitter that the game now boots up with a warning regarding a risk of seizures.
The text states that Cyberpunk 2077 features a “variety of visual effects,” some of which can provoke seizures or a loss of consciousness for some people. “If you or someone in your family has ever displayed symptoms of epilepsy in the presence of flashing lights, please consult your physician before playing CYberpunk 2077,” reads the message. “If you or someone you know experiences any of the above symptoms while playing, stop and seek medical attention immediately.”
