We have been waiting for a long time for new Cyberpunk footage and we finally have an actual date and time for the next publicly released Cyberpunk 2077 gameplay footage.
30th August 11:30PM IST (11AM PT) is the fated date and time of when we will get 15 minutes of gameplay footage that will showcase parts of the gameplay that was shown to the press at E3 2019.
Next week we’re going to host a stream during which we’ll unveil a 15-minute edit of what we’ve been showing to journalists and gamers here at gamescom, and then interview devs from the studio for additional information on what you just saw. Expect a lot of insight into the thought process behind creative decisions, information about Pacifica—one of the districts of Night City—and TONS of stuff on playstyles you’ll be able to adopt when you launch Cyberpunk 2077 next year.
This stream will be available for everyone to watch, so all of you, wherever you are, have a chance to feel a bit of gamescom — or any other trade show — at home. Hosting the entire thing will be our very own Hollie Bennett, our UK head of comms, and the dev line up will include some familiar faces you know and like.
The game that was all about giving you a taste of the Cyberpunk world is no more available on Steam after it was pulled from it.
Cyberprank 2069 a self-described joke game was originally called Cyberpunk 2069 and was available for $10. This game was described as a dating sim, a meme game and also as a [channels dunkey’s voice] Masterpiece.
The game was pulled from Steam because they stated that everyone who purchased the game before 22nd July would recieve a free copy of Cyberpunk 2077, the CDPR game for Christmas. They also said that the funniest review would get the collector’s edition of Cyberpunk 2077.
Safe to say, Steam probably wasn’t too pleased with this and decided that enough was enough and pulled the game from their store.
Cyberpunk 2077 is based on the Cyberpunk 2020 table-top RPG which has its own set of rules and stories. The game takes place decades after the events of Cyberpunk 2020 and will have reference characters and events from it. To help people get caught up with the world and the lore, the game is getting a lore-book.
Dark Horse Comics have partnered with developers CD Projekt Red to release a lore book called The World of Cyberpunk 2077. The book will release on 21st April 2020, in time with the release of the game. Dark Horse comics are known for bringing licensed franchises to the world of comic books and have previously done this for franchises like Star Wars, Aliens, Avatar: The Last Airbender and Mass Effect.
Not to mention, they also did this when The Witcher 3 launched and often work with PlayStation, Bethesda, and Microsoft.
The World of Cyberpunk 2077 will aim to help people familiarize themselves with the world of Cyberpunk which is filled with corporations, colourful people and various factions each with tons of backstory.
“Step into the year 2077, a world dotted with dystopian metropoles where violence, oppression, and cyberware aren’t just common–they’re necessary tools to get ahead. Delve into incisive lore to discover how the economic decline of the United States created a crippling dependence on devious corporations and birthed the Free State of California. Explore the various districts, gangs, and history of Night City. Learn all there is to know about the technology of tomorrow and research the cybernetics, weapons, and vehicles of Cyberpunk 2077.”
The book will cost $19.99/ Rs 2,162 for the Kindle Edition and $39.99 for the Hardcover Version. Sadly, the Hardcover version isn’t available yet in India.
Cyberpunk 2077 isn’t even out yet and is about a year away but it seems like CD Projekt Red are already working on more games in the Cyberpunk universe.
In an interview with Polish news outlet Bankier, the President of CDPR Adam Kiciński was talking about how strong the pre-sales of Cyberpunk 2077 have been. Then he went on to talk about the other Cyberpunk Projects in development.
CDPR President Adam Kiciński said, “We’re working on three ‘Cyberpunk’ things – the main game and two more. These are three teams. We are also working on ‘Gwent’ and we have still an unannounced game in Spokko [mobile division]. So we have five working teams, three working on ‘Cyberpunk’.“
One of the aforementioned games is a Multiplayer Game in the Cyberpunk world. They did say that Cyberpunk 2077 will mainly focus on a singleplayer experience and a multiplayer mode may or may not happen but it seems like its already being worked on.
Furthermore, CDPR’s next big game will also be set in the Cyberpunk world which could possibly be a sequel to Cyberpunk 2077. This is not speculation as it was stated by Vice-President Piotr Nielubowicz when he said,“Our next big project will also be in the ‘cyberpunk’ universe, and we’re already working on it and treating it as a really big and innovative project for us.”
Besides the confirmed gameplay demo that we will see during PAX West, we will also get more information about the game at the beginning of 2020.
“A strong dose (new information about the game) should be expected at the beginning of next year, when the preview will appear. Then industry journalists will already be playing and writing about it “– said the president Adam Kiciński.
During this time, they will release a preview of the game which journalists will be able to play and write about which is something we look forward to as it will give everybody a better insight as to how the game plays.
We’ve been getting more and more information about Cyberpunk 2077 ever since E3 but not a lot of that seems to spoil much about the game and same goes with this bit of info.
In an interview with GamingBolt, quest director Mateusz Tomaszkiewicz spoke briefly about the type of weapons in the game. He started off by talking about weapon customizability by saying, “You can customize the weapons in a number of ways, you can attach scopes, you can attach silencers, things like those. It’s based, of course, on a specific weapon and how many slots for improvements they have. “
He further talked about the weapon variety available in the game. “As for how many types of weapons we have— I remember just a number of them. But we have quite many of them. So there are melee weapons: katana, hammer, knife, Nanowire — which is basically these wires that you can use to fight. But you can also use them if you’re a Net Runner to hack remotely into people or devices. On top of that we have a number of ranged weapons: we have heavy guns, light guns, light machine guns, revolvers, sniper rifles.”
The emphasis on freedom of choice and variety is constantly being stressed because they really want players to have their own adventure. If you want to use a knife, or a hammer or even if you want to be a cool cyberpunk samurai, you can do it.
I just hope there’s some sort of Neon Katana and maybe a Lightsaber that can be used to slice people because that sounds like a lot of fun.
Cyberpunk 2077 releases on 16th April 2020 for the Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC.
Cyberpunk 2077 is still months away from being released but we have gotten a bit of information that can help you prepare for when it releases.
According to the PSN Store, Cyberpunk 2077 will have an install size of 80GB. This is most likely a placeholder but the size seems in the correct ballpark since Days Gone is 93GB while RDR2 is 105GB. According to Reddit user PhoOhThree, this is a placeholder title and that a Cyberpunk 2077 dev on Discord stated that they’re still adding things to the game. This means that the final size will be even larger and might be around the same as RDR2.
In other Cyberpunk 2077 news, the Xbox One X is listed to run the game at 4K. It is listed as such on the Microsoft Store page for the game. Given how we’ve only seen gameplay from a high-end PC, it might be safe to assume that the Xbox One X will probably run it at 4K 30fps. Once the PC System Requirements are out, we’ll have a clearer picture but chances are that the One X won’t be able to 4K 60fps.
It is safe to say though that Cyberpunk 2077 will require about 100GB of space on your Hard Disk and a powerful system to run at 4K 60fps. The Xbox One X will most likely give you a 4K experience but given its hardware, 60fps seems unlikely.
Twitter user shinobi602 tweeted out that Cyberpunk 2077’s extended gameplay demo won’t be made public until after Gamescom 2019 which runs from 20th-24th August.
To that, CDPR Community Lead Marcin Momot replied that it will happen exactly during PAX West which runs from 30th August till 2nd September.
This is similar to last year when CD Projekt Red released the first ever gameplay video of Cyberpunk 2077 to the masses on August 28th which was also around the time PAX West 2018 took place (August 31st).
This means that we will have to wait about 2 months and a half to get a taste of Cyberpunk 2077’s world and gameplay and we just can’t wait for it.
Cyberpunk 2077 is one of the most highly anticipated games of the current generation and maybe even of this decade and there’s actual proof of it, besides the countless tweets and posts about the game.
As of this moment, Cyberpunk 2077 is top of both the Steam Top Sellers list and GOG’s Best Selling Chart. After the release date dropped during Microsoft’s E3 conference on 8th June, the game was up for pre-order on various retailers.
Since then, it has topped the charts with what most probably is a huge amount of preorders. It’s not a surprise considering the hype surrounding the game and how amazing their E3 showing was with Keanu Reeves showing up and revealing that he’s in the game. The game is still quite a long time away from releasing but that hasn’t stopped people from pre-ordering the game.
Even people who have sworn to never pre-order games have broken their personal oath simply because of their faith in CD Projekt Red and with how every single showing of the game so far has been extremely positive.
Even the extremely expensive Collector’s Edition that costs £249.99 or INR 19,999 has already sold out in a lot of regions like Germany and Sweden.
Cyberpunk 2077 launches on April 16th, 2020 for the Xbox One family of consoles, the PlayStation 4 and Pro, and the PC.
CD Projekt Red are now known for their open-world RPG gameplay and quest prowess thanks to their effort on The Witcher 3 and now they will further show this to us with Cyberpunk 2077.
The Witcher 3, one of the best open-world RPG games of our time had amazing quest lines which could lead to multiple endings depending on the choices that you make in the game. CDPR seems to once again give players a similar experience in Cyberpunk 2077.
At E3, Youtuber YongYea spoke to Quest Director Mateusz Tomaszkiewicz who confirmed that Cyberpunk 2077 will have multiple endings. This makes sense considering the fact that they’re aiming to give players the utmost freedom in terms of how they approach and play the game. You can apparently finish the whole game without killing a single person which I hope has some sort of impact on the ending.
Cyberpunk 2077 is based on the Role-Playing Tabletop game Cyberpunk 2020 which gives players a lot of freedom with how they approach situations and is one of the most important gameplay elements. New dialogue and methods to do a mission open up depending on your character build and skills and the same mechanic has been carried over to Cyberpunk 2077.
Even your augmentations are optional besides the first two that you get at the start of the game. You can play the whole game without getting any more augments if you would like to keep yourself physically more human.
Cyberpunk 2077 looks to be very promising and we can’t wait for April 16th, 2020 when the game releases so that we can be BFFs with Keanu Reeves.
NVIDIA and CD PROJEKT RED today announced that NVIDIA® GeForce RTX™ is an official technology partner for Cyberpunk 2077 and that the companies are working together to bring real-time ray tracing to the game.
Cyberpunk 2077 won over 100 awards at E3 2018 and Gamespot calls it “one of the most anticipated games of the decade.” The game is the next project from CD PROJEKT RED, makers of the highly acclaimed The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, which has won numerous “Game of the Year” awards. NVIDIA and CD PROJEKT RED have a long history of technology collaboration that spans more than a decade.
“Cyberpunk 2077 is an incredibly ambitious game, mixing first-person perspective and deep role-playing, while also creating an intricate and immersive world in which to tell its story,” said Matt Wuebbling, head of GeForce marketing at NVIDIA. “We think the world of Cyberpunk will greatly benefit from the realistic lighting that ray tracing delivers.”
Ray tracing is the advanced graphics technique used to give movies their ultra-realistic visual effects. NVIDIA GeForce RTX GPUs contain specialized processor cores designed specifically to accelerate ray tracing so the visual effects in games can be rendered in real time.
“Ray tracing allows us to realistically portray how light behaves in a crowded urban environment,” says Adam Badowski, head of Studio at CD PROJEKT RED. “Thanks to this technology, we can add another layer of depth and verticality to the already impressive megacity the game takes place in.”
Cyberpunk 2077 is an open-world, action-adventure story set in Night City, a megalopolis obsessed with power, glamour and body modification. You play as V, a mercenary outlaw going after a one-of-a-kind implant that is the key to immortality. You can customize your character’s cyberware, skillset and playstyle, and explore a vast city where the choices you make shape the story and the world around you.
E3 attendees will get a firsthand look at Cyberpunk 2077 at booth 1023 in the South Hall of the Los Angeles Convention Center. More details, as well as exclusive 4K screenshots featuring real-time ray tracing on PC, are available at www.nvidia.com.
