After the release of an extended trailer of the Cyberpunk 2077 at Microsoft’s E3 2018 press conference, the developers are finally talking about what kind of game they are making. Cyberpunk 2077, as stated by the team of CD Projekt Red, is “an open world, narrative-driven role-playing game” played in the first-person point of view.
Players will get to play the role of V, a “hired gun on the rise” in Cyberpunk’s brutal metropolis, Night City. CD Projekt Red promises a “vigorous character creator” that will let players choose their appearance, gender, background and class, choices that may influence on how Cyberpunk 2077 plays out.
The players can interact with the citizens of Night City through a unique dialogue system that gives agency over Cyberpunk 2077’s narrative. The story will be well stocked with decisions to make, choices and consequences, CD Projekt Red said, “difficult decisions that will ripple through the entire game.”
As of now, The main concern among some players, specifically those who played The Witcher games, which are played in third-person is the new game’s first-person perspective. Over at Twitter, CD Projekt Red, calmed the rising concerns of gamers, that Cyberpunk 2077 is a first-person shooter and that, therefore, character customization will be pointless.
“You’ll have many opportunities to see your character,” CD Projekt Red said. “It’s going to be First Person RPG, not an FPS.”
The confirmed platforms for the Cyberpunk 2077 are PlayStation 4, Windows PC and Xbox One. There’s no clue on the release date yet.
