CD PROJEKT RED, creators of The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, have revealed a brand new trailer for their long in-development new game Cyberpunk 2077! It will be a first-person role-playing game, a major change from The Witcher 3’s 3rd person perspective.
The game will be a narrative-driven, open world RPG set in the most vibrant and dangerous metropolis of the future — Night City. You play as V, a hired gun on the rise, who just got their first serious contract. In a world of cyberenhanced street warriors, tech-savvy netrunners and corporate life-hackers, today is your first step to becoming an urban legend.
The title’s FPS combat is said to play out a lot faster than games like Fallout 4 while remaining slower than the likes of DOOM and Borderlands.
Players will also have the option to use a matrix-style slow-motion/bullet-time mechanic that can slow down time and make combat easier for a limited time.
Like the Witcher 3, NPCs can give players quests, and each of these quests has unique dialogue options, characters can level up in Cyberpunk 2077 and “Street Cred” is an important metric for game progression.
CD Projekt CEO Adam Kicinski previously said of the game:“Cyberpunk is our new Witcher 3, but even more ambitious. Our goal is to establish a new blockbuster franchise from the beginning. We work [in a] new universe, futuristic universe. We believe it’s very appealing to players, not only RPG players—but this is [a] true RPG, like Witcher, like Witcher 3, for mature audiences. It’s handcrafted, detailed, of course open-world, with open-ended gameplay.”
