Updated February 28, 2019: Cyberpunk 2077 will be at E3 2019, so expect more details, gameplay, and possibly a release date then.

Today, CD Projekt RED shared the first details surrounding Cyberpunk 2077. Cyberpunk 2077 is an open world, first-person, narrative-driven role-playing game set in the universe of the classic Cyberpunk 2020 pen and paper game system.

The game features first-person shooting and cover mechanics to traverse a dangerous metropolis. Cyberpunk 2077 follows the story of "V", a hired gun on the rise in Night City, the most violent and deadly environment in a corporate-ruled future. According to the developer, a thorough character creator will allow players to choose V's gender, appearance, character class, as well as historical background. However, keep in mind that even these choices greatly affect gameplay so you have to be prepared.

With dozens of hours of main story quests, and many more of additional activities, there's always something to see and do in Night City. Players will experience all of it entirely through V's eyes, with an interactive dialogue system that gives them greater narrative agency. Returning in Cyberpunk 2077 is CD Projekt RED's hallmark of choices and consequences. As they make their way through the streets of Night City and its towering buildings, players will face difficult decisions that will ripple through the entire game. Lastly, the title will feature full-frontal nudity and numerous romance options.

Cyberpunk 2077 will be releasing on Xbox One, PC, and PlayStation 4 in the future. It's going to be enhanced for Xbox One X as well. It's unclear if the title is launching in 2019 or beyond. However, given the scope of the project, it seems like we have a long wait ahead of us. There is so much to discover about the game and we'll keep you posted along the way.

  • This game is going to be so amazing
  • First person.. that is to bad
  • That's actually not that bad. If only it wasn't a shooter... 🙄
    I mean combat is OK, but I don't wanna play Call of Duty. Hopefully they don't screw it up.
  • What does first person have to do with call of duty (besides that fact that call of duty is ONE first person game). Don't be an idiot
  • Before you call others idiots, maybe you should read and understand what he said. lol
  • Yeah, first person just turned me off. I got super hyped with the trailer, and I thought it would be the witcher meets Blade Runner. Too bad. I rarely play a first person game.
  • Why is first person a bad thing? Even if they made the witcher 3 first person it would still be a great game
  • I guess because you want to see the dude you created 😄
  • Perhaps it's like the Elder Scrolls or Fallout, where it's both. Just toggles the camera so you can pan around your character or see through his/her eyes. Frankly, I don't understand why that's no more common. I much prefer the control in first person games, but when I'm not in combat and it's less necessary to be instant-fast and precise at the same time, I too like the 3rd person view to see my character. I believe I even had that option way back in Ultima IX.
  • I think having both options is good. I can also see it maybe changing how you play though as potentially one good reason to have only one or the other. Like in 3rd person view you could hide in a corner and angle your view so can still see around it without exposing your character.
  • Could even be both.
  • That's your (stupid and self defeating) choice
  • That's called having a taste and opinion. Just because someone doesn't have the same taste as you it doesn't mean their choice is stupid. LOL
  • I'm looking forward to this.
  • "choices and consequences." -As if I didn't have enough of these in my real life 🤔
  • Ha! Tell me about it. I think I had a job in Shenmue before I had a job in real life! Come on Ryo, drive that forklift!!!!!!
  • A lot of people suffer from motion sickness in video game, so why to choose in this kind of game First Person? Video games are suppose to be more inclusive, i hope they let choose the camera like BattleFront 2 or PUBG for example. I my personal case i have not play a FPS since Turok the Dinosaur Hunter in N64. I can even remember the cheat to unlock all the weapons and it has pass like 20 years. A lot people enjoy the firts person games and that is good, but some other like me don't.
  • if you've really never played FPS since n64 turok you should try modern games, they aren't nearly as bad
