One of the most anticipated titles of the year, Cyberpunk 2077, had a big reveal on Thursday night with a brand new trailer and new information on the open-world RPG.
The game, which was recently delayed, will launch on 19 November 2020 on Xbox One, PS4 and PC. It was previously revealed that anyone who purchases the Xbox One version will access it for free on the Xbox Series X, and last night it was confirmed that it would be the same deal for PlayStation fans, with free access to the enhanced version for PS5.
In the first episode of Night City Wire, a series of videos that CD Projekt Red will be releasing about the game, they discussed the Braindance mechanic. This is basically a memory editor which allows you to experience and live through someone's memories, and will be an important tool for storytelling in the game.
In the gameplay, they showcased a botched store robbery which ended with the robber being executed. They called this video a ‘flatliner’, and the editor allows you to figure out how and why it all went bad.
Story details were also revealed. On your journey for a chip that offers immortality, you will be accompanied by a character named Jackie and will encounter a number of gangs who you will have to create unique relationships with as you hunt down this new tech. You will also encounter a number of Ripper Docs who will help slowly turn your body into a war machine.
They also discussed the desert area outside of the city limits, which is called "The Badlands."
If you are looking for even more Cyberpunk content, then once you are done with the game, you can check out the Cyberpunk anime series being developed for Netflix, which is due to hit screens in 2022.
Check out the new trailer which is packed with action, and according to the developers, all of this takes place in the prologue of the game - meaning there is going to be so much more to see!
