How to Fix Cyberpunk 2077 Crashing (Error Code CE-34878-0)

Cyberpunk 2077 has been out for a day now, and already players are spending more time trying to fix the game's crashing than they are in Night City.

In one of gaming's rockiest launches, Cyberpunk 2077 finally released yesterday to mixed reception. While many users are praising the game, there are more than a few issues that are being overlooked in these reviews.

For the most part, the game is failing to deliver on CD Projekt's promises. It's missing features, full of bugs, and completely unready to release.

What's more, Cyberpunk 2077 is completely unplayable on PS4 and Xbox One. And adding on to this pile of issues, the game is also crashing on consoles everywhere.

This error is known to stem from corrupt game save files or broken hard drives. It's unlikely that the latter will be the issue, particularly if your other games aren't crashing in this manner.

However, it may be worth restarting your save file while you're still early in the game, and see if that solves anything. You could even take this chance to try out a new Cyberpunk 2077 life path, to keep the experience fresh.

Unfortunately, Cyberpunk 2077 error code CE-34878-0 can also be caused by an unknown or random software bug. This could be just another problem with Cyberpunk 2077 that needs to be resolved by the game's developer.

However, there are a few fixes for you to try before giving up:

In order to rid yourself of Cyberpunk 2077's CE-34878-0 error, start by updating your PlayStation's firmware. Also, be sure to check for new Cyberpunk patches whenever you boot up.

We'd also recommend clearing your PlayStation's cache. Doing so is known to resolve error codes with ease, but it's certainly an inconvenience before playing your new game.

When you boot up your console, you can also try starting your PlayStation in Safe Mode. By holding down the power button until it beeps twice, PlayStation users can boot up in Safe Mode and select Rebuild Database.

This won't affect your save data, but it'll attempt to fix software faults with your PlayStation console. You can also uninstall and reinstall Cyberpunk 2077 on your device's hard drive to ensure the software is fresh and error-free.

Ultimately though, a lot of players will have to wait even longer to get the Cyberpunk 2077 we were promised. In fact, for those on new hardware, it might be worth waiting for the free Cyberpunk 2077 upgrade to next-gen consoles.

Cyberpunk 2077 has major problems at this point in its lifespan. Hopefully, CD Projekt will get it together and fix the game in the coming months, but it's hard to hold out too much hope right now.

And for those on PC, here are the best settings to improve Cyberpunk 2077's performance.
