    Cyberpunk 2077

    I'm starting a thread because news is finally starting to come out...I've been waiting on this game for over five damn years. From the studio that created Witcher III.



    And now we know that something will be shown at E3 in June. Launch will be single player campaign only, though there will be multiplayer and expansions down the road. Current and next-gen consoles and PC. I'm so hyped for this.

    Rumour (so take this with a grain of salt) has it it'll have an hour long presentation for the media at E3!

    I really enjoyed the Harebrained Schemes Shadowrun games, so I'm hoping I can get into this as well.

    No gameplay though. Hopefully not an FPS.

    as someone who tried and failed to get into Witcher III, I'm still excited to play this. Hopefully it'll be on the show floor at E3.

    Have you played the previous games or read any of the books? That really helped me getting into it.

    Mike Pondsmith, who designed the original TTRPG that Cyberpunk 2077 is based on, spoke about the game in a video for CDPR back in 2013. His particular pitch is what originally piqued my interest in the game. In part because it reassured me that game was going to reckon with the issues the genre of cyberpunk is about writ large, instead of just mining that space for "cool" aesthetics.

    More details coming today apparently, hopefully gameplay. First tidbit leaked is that the game is first person.

    • CD Projekt describes the game as a "first-person RPG."
    • Gameplay is in first a first-person perspective, but switched to third-person during a cutscene.
    • You play a character named V (as in the letter).
    • V can be a man or a woman.
    • The stats you pick at the start include Strength, Constitution, Intelligence, Reflexes, Tech, and Cool.
    • These stats are all pulled from the original tabletop RPG.
    • There are no classes at the start. Instead, you evolve the class you want to be as you play instead of picking a role.
    • You can drive cars in the game, and seemingly toggle between first and third person during this.
    • While driving in first-person, the U.I. appears diegetically on the windshield.
    • You can engage in combat while driving -- AI took over steering as you lean out the window and shoot at enemies.
    • CD Projekt also described Cyberpunk as a "mature experience intended for mature audiences."
    • The goal is for you to not only engage with the game world, but with its inhabitants.
    • Like Witcher, you take missions from NPCs and have dialogue options in conversations.
    • It's an open world that you open up more with "street cred." For example, a specific jacket might raise it by 5%, allowing you access to new places.
    • Completing a quest levels up your street cred.
    • The UI in the demo is extremely minimal at -- just a light compass and a small quest log.
    • UI expands during combat -- enemies have names, health bars, and what appear to be levels.
    • Some enemies have question marks instead of levels, possibly meaning they're much higher level than you.
    • Damage numbers pop up during combat.
    • There's a bullet-time-like ability that allows you to slow down time.
    • CD Projekt keeps emphasizing that choices have consequences, in the moment and to the world at large.
    • Obstacles have several solutions depending on your skills. For example, V got to a door, but his hacking skill was too low. However, his engineering skill was high enough, so he could open a panel and bypass the door.
    • There's an inspection system lets you look super close at items and learn more about lore.
    • You use an inhaler to heal.
    • Gunplay feels slower than Doom or Borderlands, but faster than Fallout 4.
    • CD Projekt showed off some late-game abilities, including mantis-like blade arms and wall running.
    • We saw a boss fight against a dude in an exoskeleton. This included sliding under cars and taking cover.

    The more i hear about this game the more i want it!

    I'm pretty happy they're going a different direction from The Witcher 3. It would have been too easy to just make The Witcher in the future so it shows they're open to new ideas. And that trailer.....daaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaamn!
