Cyberpunk 2077 Has A Hidden "Cinematic RTX" Mode That Turns The Graphics Higher Than Psycho Settings

If you happen to have an ultra-powerful gaming rig, you might be able to take advantage of the latest Cyberpunk 2077 ray tracing mod. The aptly named “Enable Cinematic_RTX” mod doesn’t actually bring anything new to your game, rather it unlocks a ray tracing mod already hardcoded by CD Projekt Red.

You can find the full details about the graphics mod on its Nexus Mods page, but activating the breathtaking graphics tweak is surprisingly simple. If you’re running Cyberpunk 2077 on GOG, just make a shortcut to its executable file and add the following argument:

-qualityLevel=Cinematic_RTX

The steps are a bit different if you’re running through Steam. Instead of creating a shortcut, right click Cyberpunk 2077 in your library, select Properties, and insert the above argument into the Launch Options field.

You’ll need an extra 2GB of VRAM to properly play Cyberpunk with Cinematic RTX turned on, but this is far and away the best Night City has ever looked.

No doubt you’ll need a beefy GPU, and it’s likely most people won’t be able to run around Night City with these settings activated. Still, if you managed to pick up one of the new Nvidia cards, this is the ideal way to play Cyberpunk 2077.

The modder lists a few other graphic settings beyond Cinematic RTX, some of which are meant to replicate console graphics. To use them, simply insert the appropriate term from the below list into the previously mentioned argument (-qualityLevel=”Insert Parameter Here”):

  • Low
  • Medium
  • High
  • Ultra
  • RTXMedium
  • RTXUltra
  • Cinematic
  • Cinematic_RTX
  • CinematicEXR
  • CinematicEXR_RTX
  • SafeMode
  • Console
  • ConsolePro
  • ConsoleEarlyNextGen
  • ConsoleEarlyNextGenQuality
  • GeForceNow
  • IconsGeneration
  • Auto

Cyberpunk 2077 might be taking some hits on PS4 and Xbox One, but it’s an entirely different game on PC. Most reviewers agree that Night City is a world worth exploring if you’ve got the rig to run it, and not even bugs can detract from the experience put together by CD Projekt Red. No doubt the studio should have paid more attention to how things ran on consoles, but it sounds like the team is committed to righting the wrong in 2021.

If you’re interested in checking out the mod for yourself, head over to its page on Nexus Mods.
