I was not at all excited after the debut of Cyberpunk 2077 at E3 but after watching the 48 minute game play video that was released by the team over at CD Projekt Red I believe I have officially received my first semi-chub over a game. This however is a blantent lie as it actual happens nearly all the time.
The game play started off at what seemed like the beginning of the game where you see main characters, V played by you and her/his sidekick Jackie, going to rescue a missing cyborg. During the rescue you see both stealth and non-stealth combat as well as a slow motion shooting mechanic. Upon completing the rescue you bring the missing cyborg out on to a balcony to allow for her to be wisped away in a rescue transport. This is where you see perhaps the most impressive part of the game, the environment. CD Projekt Red expertly craft an environment with an astounding amount of detail. This is further shown later in the video when V is seen walking through the lower parts of the city.
what seemed to be a major component of the game was the use of different cybernetic prosthetic augmentations. During the video V goes to visit the Ripperdoc, at her visit the doc removes her eye and installs some augmentations that give her new abilities, its worth adding that you saw the whole process through a POV perspective.
There are still a lot of questions surrounding the game but me for one am satisfied with what we saw for now. Check out the demo for yourself before and let us know what you think.
