Cyberpunk 2077's Night City is every bit as insane as you'd expect in new video

What you need to know

  • CD Projekt RED debuted a new video diving deeper into Night City.
  • The studio also revealed all of the gangs in Night City, along with the game's minimum and recommended specs.
  • Cyberpunk 2077 is releasing on November 19 for current and next-gen consoles.

CD Projekt RED debuted Night City Wire Episode 3 today, giving us an even better look at the charismatic city from Cyberpunk 2077. In a video titled "Postcards from Night City," we see the glamorous and seedy parts of the city in full view.

The video begins off with what appears to be an in-game television show segment discussing the city in a world news update, before it transitions into a type of traveler's ad for tourists. The sprawling city will have plenty for us to explore when we finally jump in this November. CD Projekt RED even set up a website at where players can learn more about Night City and its history. One of the pictures on the page even shows what they do to poachers (incinerating them lasers), and I have to say I'm all for it.

The rest of Night City Wire gave us a deeper look into the gangs of Night City, and there sure are a lot. I was expected maybe 3 or 4, but there are many more, each with their own distinct personalities, districts and history. The episode ended with a look at Cyberpunk 2077's minimum and recommended PC specs, and I hope you're PC can handle it.

Cyberpunk 2077 is set to release on November 19, 2020 for Xbox One, Xbox Series X, Xbox Series S, PS4, PS5, and PC.
