There’s gameplay reveals and then there are REVEALS. Today gives eager gamers our first look at the highly anticipated RPG, Cyberpunk 2077, in action. The footage came from CD Projekt RED’s Twitch stream, coming in at 48 minutes of gameplay, which has only been shown to media at this point. In short, it’s drop dead gorgeous and I can’t believe this is a real game that we’ll be playing at some point. Check it out for yourself:
“What we’re releasing today was recorded from a game deep in development.” — says Adam Badowski, Cyberpunk 2077 Game Director and CD PROJEKT RED Head of Studio. “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 (both in terms of visuals and how RPG stats influence it), netrunning, car physics, or the game’s UI — 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 character facial expressions, early versions of locations — 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.” — adds Badowski. “Although this is probably not the same game you’ll see on your screen when we launch, we still decided to share this 48-minute video with you. This is how Cyberpunk 2077 looks today. Let us know what you think!”
While we still don’t have a release date for Cyberpunk 2077, there’s no denying that progress is coming along nicely. Hopefully it won’t be too long before we’re able to get our hands on it at home.
