CD Project Red’s most anticipated game yet, Cyberpunk 2077, is not soon to be released till early 2020. CDPR have confirmed that they are going to be at E3 this year where they are most likely going to announce the release date for the game. So here’s the summary of what the game is about and what you missed from the last year’s E3 so that you can enjoy the unveiling without missing out on anything. The game has won over 100 awards for the trailer alone and has been named the most wanted game at the 36th golden joystick awards.
Cyberpunk is a first-person open-world RPG. The game is an adaptation of cyberpunk 2020 where you play 57 years later in the dystopian Night City. Players take the role of a mercenary named V, whose sex, hairstyle, face, body type, body modifications, skintones, background, clothing can be fully customized. The game provides a seamless experience with no loading screens.
There are three character classes Netrunner (experts in hacking), Techie (machinery) and solo (combat). Character stats include Strength, Constitution, Intelligence, Reflex, Tech, and Cool. These stats are completely malleable with character classes. Experience points are gained by completing main quests whereas completing side quests unlocks new skills, vendors, places and additional quests.
V can jump, double jump, slide, crouch, run on walls, take cover, aim, and fire. Equipping Mantis Blades enables V to use them as a melee weapon and a tool for climbing on walls. Upgrades can be purchased from black market merchants known as Ripperdocs in exchange for the in-game currency EuroDollars.
Cyberpunk 2077 Weapons
The game will feature melee and ranged weapons. There are three types of ranged weapons Power, Tech, and Smart. These weapons can be customized and modified. Players will have to go to the Gunsmiths to repair and upgrade their guns. Gunsmiths can be found all over in Night City. The game also features reflex boosters which temporarily allows players to use the Kereznikov Ability which boosts the reflexes of the player, a feature that has also been seen in the F.E.A.R franchise.
The world in Cyberpunk 2077
Night City is gorgeously detailed where you will find every alley and street is blistering with life thanks to their all-new crowd system. The game features dynamic weather and a full Day-Night cycle. The environment is interactive, where V will be able to buy a soda from a vending machine, order food from a vendor, interact with a product commercial, talk to people, use objects near him/her to create cover, etc. Apartments can be bought in Night City where V will be able to use it as a place to rest, store or fetch weapons, change clothes and bring back NPC’s for sexual activities. From the demo, it can be seen that the walls in the game are damaged if hit with bullets which suggests that the game can have destructible environments.
Night city is divided into six districts City center, Watson, Westbrook, Heywood, Pacifico, and Santo Domingo. The whole city is traversable on foot or a vehicle. The vehicles are customizable and the player can switch between the third-person or first-person view while driving. The game features autonomous vehicles which help the player to focus on the gunfight instead of driving.
CDPR have confirmed that they are going to release cyberpunk as a single player game only, they have no intentions of releasing the multiplayer versions of the game as of now.
The game is in development for more than 5 years now and will take at least a year more for the final fit and finish of the game. Cyberpunk is the most expensive title by the developer till now, with the budgets exceeding their previous AAA title. The much-awaited demo was really well received by the fans and the critics, which showed everybody what they can expect from the game. This year the expectation is even higher, where everyone is curious to know about how much have they progressed with the game. Now it’s only a matter of days till we find out from the developers how far is the game away from its release.
Along with Cyberpunk, this year’s E3 is going to feature more than 30 games along with some rumored games like The Avenger’s project and the coveted Tom Clancy’s Splinter Cell. So make sure you watch out for E3 2019! and we will be updating you with the latest news from the event. Happy Gaming!
