After a bit of teasing and a few screenshots at Gamescom 2018 last week, CD Projekt Red shared a gameplay reveal of the upcoming open-world RPG Cyberpunk 2077 with 48 minutes of gameplay footage.
The gameplay shares a glimpse into the world of perils and possibilities that is Night City, the “most vibrant and dangerous metropolis of the future.”
Here’s a message from Game Director Adam Badowski in a press release:
“What we’re releasing today was recorded from a game deep in development. Since many of the assets and mechanics in the current version of Cyberpunk 2077 are most likely to be modified, we initially decided to show this gameplay only to media. Elements like gunplay (both in terms of visuals and how RPG stats influence it), netrunning, car physics, or the game’s UI — everything’s pretty much still in the playtest phase and we felt uneasy about publicly committing to any particular design. Animation glitches, work-in-progress character facial expressions, early versions of locations — all this made us hesitant to release what you’re about to see.”
“However, we are also well aware that many of you want to see what the media saw Although this is probably not the same game you’ll see on your screen when we launch, we still decided to share this 48-minute video with you. This is how Cyberpunk 2077 looks today. Let us know what you think!”
Cyberpunk 2077 is in development for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.
