E3 2018: Cyberpunk 2077: CD Projekt Addresses First-Person Backlash

Posted June 14, 2018

You probably guessed it from the trailer already, but yes, vehicles will indeed be integral to getting around Cyberpunk 2077's world. Gameplay impressions published last night offered some more information about how combat will work in CD Projekt Red's upcoming RPG.

That said, as easy as it would be to make cyberpunk your life, whether you want to is another matter.

According to Bethesda's Todd Howard, the game will see you coming back from a mission only to find your home completely destroyed. And now the sequel was confirmed during Bethesda's E3 conference via a majestic, albeit incredibly short, teaser trailer.

Game Noir - With its mature approach to storytelling, Cyberpunk 2077 adopts elements of noir cinema and inserts them into the future of video games.

Character customisation will feature heavily, your cyberpunk character V being male or female with a range of options for making their look unique. If players aren't happy with their starting apartment, it sounds like they'll be able to use their "blood money" to invest in additional properties. Offering dozens of activities like side quests and Street Stories, the game is a good fit for both hardcore completionists and gamers who like to focus on instant action.
