Cyberpunk 2077 Release, Setting, & Gameplay Details You May Have Missed.
(AfroGamers.com) Cyberpunk 2077 is the hottest game reveal of the year. CD Projekt Red showed gameplay behind closed doors and later it was revealed to the masses. Cyberpunk 2077 is undoubtedly one of the biggest games fans are most excited about. Here are 10 key details about the game you may have missed.
1. The game is set 57 years after the events of its predecessor Cyberpunk 2020. The game features an open world with six vast regions to explore. The dystopian setting of Night City, California is the place that features crime, violence and, technically advanced lifestyle.
2. Cyberpunk 2077 allows players to choose their character’s backstory. In the creepy Night City, you’re free to set your role according to your will. While interacting with NPCs, you can decide if you want to develop romantic relationships or you want your character to be solely dependent on violence and revenge.
3. The game lets you design your character’s class in three ways. You can either choose the solo class with a focus on skill set improvement or you can choose the techie class which is geared towards machines and gadgets. There is one more class called netrunner which is capable of hacking into computers and even the minds of people to manipulate them. You can combine these classes as you progress.
4. Your communication with NPCs determines the consequences. So when you approach NPCs, you will see a dialogue box with multiple options to choose from. You can befriend some, be good to them, or you can plot the assassination of certain non-playable characters.
5. At some point, the game looks like it’s a child of The Witcher 3 and GTA 5. You can drive cars, peep out of the window to shoot enemies and like Grand Theft Auto games, Cyberpunk 2077 allows you to run over people. Unlike The Witcher 3, the game features a different map style which is obviously not very flat.
6. You may have seen advertisements placed in many games. For Cyberpunk 2077, CD Projekt Red has found an innovative way for the placement of ads. While in other games, you see advertisements placed at random locations, in this game, you can interact with these ads to find the way to reach the right vendors.
7. Cyberpunk 2077 features dynamic weather and day and night cycles. As anyone who has played Cyberpunk games knows how important the dynamic weather is for the game’s dystopian setting. The best among all is the dark rainy night, but the developer has promised that during the daytime also that dark and dystopian feel won’t be missed.
8. Full nudity will be displayed in the game. It is there not because the developer wants to make some quick money by selling sexuality in the game, but they want to make the game look more believable and that’s the reason they kept it that way. If you have watched the E3 demo, you may have noticed how certain body parts were hidden with pixelated boxes. Players will be able to spend some “adult time” in V’s apartment as well.
9. Street Cred is important in Cyberpunk 20177 as it will help you connect with people in a better way. With the right amount of Street Cred, you will be able to purchase goods at a certain price, and it will also reflect your respect level. We expect that some parts of the side quests will heavily rely on how much street cred you have. It reminds us of GTA San Andreas where you can recruit certain gang members based on the level of respect you earn.
10. The gameplay is heavily focused on weapons as the Night City is full of violence and crime. CD Projekt Red introduced some weapons through the gameplay demo and more weapons will be available in the final game. Players can use mods to upgrade their weapons and they can also access the inspection system to learn more objects and use it to link a robot that comes in handy now and then.
There’s no set release date for Cyberpunk 2077, but the game is expected to arrive in 2019. Publisher CD Projekt will release the game for the PS4, Xbox One, and PC.
