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.

  • My bleeding eyes cant wait!
  • Just a general FYI. There are boobs shown in this video. Don't get some unwanted time off work watching this. :)
  • This was the demo shown at E3 right? Looks really good and I will be purchasing. Witcher RPG combined with old and rebooted Dues Ex setting & Augmentation. The gun play elements from Synidate reboot/Doom. I know it's just the beginning of game but based on the hype, kind of excepting more with statements like 'Doing things that no other game is doing'. CP2077 looks to have a good mixture of many games with a great attention to world detail and other details. The gun play seems floaty or a weak element like in Deus Ex compared to a FPS. The car mechanics looks like GTA3 at this stage. No doubt when release it will be great.
  • Well it's a in-game development alpha build. Really too soon to judge.
  • Not 50, just 48)) kidding! but the leading game designer, Patrick Mills, said the trailer looks very similar to game release, and release will be in the middle of 2019, according to the dmarket
