As CD Projekt Red (CDPR) announced last week that it would launch a new Cyberpunk 2077 gameplay trailer soon, the developer indeed streamed live from Warsaw on August 30, showcasing a 14-minute edit of the nearly hour-long demo on its official Twitch and Mixer channels that it shared at E3 and Gamescom this year.
The footage gives us a good peek at the in-game Johnny Silverhand (actor Keanu Reeves’ character) – certainly one of the biggest highlights of the video.
CDPR shared last week, “We are doing R&D into multiplayer but we’re focusing on single-player experience, and that’s what you’ll get in 2020 when Cyberpunk 2077 ships. It doesn’t mean we’re saying no multiplayer, but it doesn’t mean we’re saying yes either. It’s still an R&D phase.”
“If you add multiplayer functions it has to be right. Immersion is super important for us and we have to make sure everything fits together. The single-player experience, it all fits together. We’re not just going to slap some [multiplayer] feature in and that’ll be it,” it further added.
Latest developments have underlined that the first-person RPG is coming to Google Stadia. During its Stadia Connect presentation at the beginning of Gamescom 2019, Google made the big announcement. A release date is yet to be confirmed for the same, but it has been highlighted that Cyberpunk 2077 is “coming soon” for the cloud gaming platform.
The developer has shared some more details about the title. Interestingly, you will have the power to create your character, thus giving a new shape to your gameplay altogether.
“This time around, we have a big variety of different skills that players can modify as they develop their character throughout the game. And in turn, they can use these skills to discover different paths through the levels, to discover different options and quests,” said quest director Mateusz Tomaszkiewicz.
“On top of that, we also have these things called Lifepaths, which are the origins of our character that we choose at the beginning of the game when we create the character. So for example, you might imagine that if you’re a Street Kid, you have an easier time talking to different gangs. Or if you’re a Corporate, you might have an advantage over people from the corporations, since you know how they think and how they operate,” Tomaszkiewicz added.
The studio CD Projekt also revealed that there will be three lifepaths to choose from — Street Kid, Corpo, and Nomad. These are likely to make the gaming experience all the more thrilling.
Cyberpunk 2077 is scheduled to launch for PC, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Google Stadia on April 16, 2020.
