Today, CD Projekt RED shared the first gameplay footage from 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 follows the story of "V", a hired gun on the rise in "Night City", the most violent and deadly place in a corporate-ruled future. The game features Xbox One controller icons, but it was probably recorded from PC.
Cyberpunk 2077 Game Director Adam Badowski provided a brief overview of the demo's contents.
What we're releasing today was recorded from a game deep in development. 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, netrunning, car physics... 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.... expressions... 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. Although this is probably not the same game you'll see on your screen when we launch, we still decided to share this... with you.
The game 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.
