CD Projekt has released the promised trailer for Cyberpunk 2077. It’s sort of like a slow-mo moving picture mixed with a newscast and CGI. The release date? According to the end of the trailer: when it’s ready.
However, CDP did send over some extra information regarding the game.
Cyberpunk 2077 tells the tale of how advancement went hand-in-hand with the decay of society.
Body augmentations “invented to serve society” multiplied the problems, and which as you can see in the trailer, has led to “mayhem in the streets.” New inventions also led to addictions, and the larger problem of poverty.
In the game, layers will walk the streets of Night City as an individual, who raised on the streets, is trying to better himself while trying to survive a world full of boostergangs and megacorporations.
The city is rampant with drugs, violence, poverty and exclusion where “psychos go on rampages.” The streets are also filled with junkies addicted to “the braindance,” which is an inexpensive way to experience the emotions and stimuli of someone who lives a more exciting life.
A user can “stream a braindance directly into his neural system via special brain augmentations,” by using a BD player. This allows the viewer to “experience all brain processes registered, including emotions, muscle movements and all stimuli perceived by the recording person.”
Some braindances created by megacorporations are simple, some viscerally extreme, and others more controversial due to being created illegally in the underground.
So for example: entering the mind of a serial killer means not only “seeing the monstrosity he performs, but also living his lust to kill and fulfillment.”
There are accounts of users also pushing things too far with braindances, to the point they cannot stop living the other person’s life.
Cyberpunk 2077 is a multi-thread, nonlinear story in which players will visit some of the places pulled from the pen and paper Cyberpunk 2020 RPG.
One area will include a combat zone completely taken over by gangs, where the player can visit the Afterlife joint and the Forlorn Hope.
The sandbox nature of the game will also provide the player with plenty of guns, rifles, implants, gadgets and other equipment.
A release date, as previously mentioned, was not provided beyond 2015, according to a bit of text added at the end of the trailer.
“You’re probably curious about the release date.” said CDP. “It’s currently scheduled a way off, in 2015, but in truth, the delivery date is more like, ‘when it’s done.’
“We will release Cyberpunk to you when we’re convinced it is nothing but pure, refined, unadulterated awesome. we want it to be the most kick ass futuristic RPG ever—ok, maybe this sounds pretty bully, but it is our actual goal. And you may wonder why we announced our game so early before the release.
“The reason is that we’re still building our dev team. So if you are a talented dude or dudette, willing to work in a really different company on a super ambitious project, send us your application.”
