Cyberpunk 2077 developer CD Projekt RED has stressed that its futuristic romp will be a “true RPG game,” and that it will bring many new gameplay mechanics to the table.

It follows this Cyberpunk 2077 trailer, which features slow mo and a cyborg woman being shot to bits.

In an interview with IGN, CD Projekt RED co-founder Marcin Iwinski explained why those fearing a casual, shooter-led experience needn’t worry. “People have been asking me if Cyberpunk 2077 will have multiplayer or if it will be a straight-up shooter, and I tell them to relax, because it will be a true RPG game,” he said.

“We are known for storytelling, and big game worlds,” he continued, “and so we’re taking all what we’ve learnt from previous three Witcher games, as well as the open-world aspect, and applying it to Cyberpunk 2077. So yes, it is an all-out RPG game, but we’re looking at having a lot of new gameplay elements that I cannot talk about yet. One thing I can say for sure is that it is definitely NOT a multiplayer shooter.”
