CD PROJEKT RED, creators of The Witcher and Gwent, are proud to present the first gameplay recording of their upcoming open-world RPG — Cyberpunk 2077.
“What we’re releasing today was recorded from a game deep in development.” — says Adam Badowski, Cyberpunk 2077 Game Director and CD PROJEKT RED Head of Studio. “Since many of the assets and mechanics in the current version of Cyberpunk 2077 are most likely to be modified, we initially decided to show this gameplay only to media.
Elements like gunplay (both in terms of visuals and how RPG stats influence it), netrunning, car physics, or the game’s UI — everything’s pretty much still in the playtest phase and we felt uneasy about publicly committing to any particular design. Animation glitches, work-in-progress character facial expressions, early versions of locations — all this made us hesitant to release what you’re about to see.”
“However, we are also well aware that many of you want to see what the media saw.” — adds Badowski. “Although this is probably not the same game you’ll see on your screen when we launch, we still decided to share this 48-minute video with you. This is how Cyberpunk 2077 looks today. Let us know what you think!”
This gameplay footage is terrifying in such a good way. Have you ever wanted to be a part of the Bladerunner universe well it looks like Cyberpunk 2077 will scratch that itch. Any fans of tabletop RPG’s will love the deep customisation, in particular, the motivations of your character, their background, and their goals. It’s fascinating, to say the least.
Once again the transparency of CD PROJEKT RED has to be applauded. Many developers could learn from them. Stay tuned to GamEir as this will not be the last we hear about this exciting game.
