This new Cyberpunk 2077 PS4 theme is a stylish way to show your excitement for the upcoming open-world RPG, but even if you aren't psyched to stomp the streets of Night City, the theme's worth the download for the beeps and boops alone. You can download it right now for free - here's the link for the US PlayStation Store (opens in new tab) and another for Europe (opens in new tab).
It's titled "Mercenary of the Dark Future" and it's a static theme, which means it doesn't have any fancy motion parts like that God of War one with the bobbing boat (opens in new tab). Instead it has Cyberpunk 2077 (opens in new tab) ambience in spades, with a low-key electronic theme that will turn your living room into a gritty future lounge if you leave it on in the background. Better still, it has special sound effects for swiping through your menu, and it even goes "beep" and "boop" for menu noises like an old computer that's been taken apart and put back together 200 times.

The theme highlights the new default look for V (opens in new tab), your customizable protagonist in Cyberpunk 2077. Since you can change their look to be whatever you want, I would have preferred the theme focus on a set character we'll get to meet in the game, like Bug the ace netrunner (opens in new tab). No biggie, I'm savoring the overall "24/7 lo-fi sci-fi theme to chill and relax to" aesthetic enough that this theme will probably adorn my PS4 for a while. Make sure you load it up before you read our story about how the new Cyberpunk Red tabletop RPG (opens in new tab) will help lead into the world of Cyberpunk 2077.
You'll have even more to look forward to after Cyberpunk 2077 comes out on April 16 2020, as CD Projekt Red is teasing some Witcher-style expansions (opens in new tab). Until then, check out our video impressions of the game from E3.
